PlayStation Vita Ridge Racer Download Content Detailed
Free and paid DLC on the way for launch racer.
With just three tracks and five cars included in the base package, buyers of the PlayStation Vita version of Ridge Racer are probably going to want to expand the experience with post release download content. This week's Famitsu has a DLC schedule along with pricing information.
It looks like Namco Bandai is planning weekly download content for the game. It all begins on December 22, a few days after the game's December 17 release, with the release of a free DLC music pack featuring music from past Ridge Racer games. The music downloads will continue in January and February with free weekly music packs.
The paid DLC kicks in in mid February. February 23 will see at least one car priced ¥250 and one course priced ¥400. March will see three cars and two courses, price unspecified in Famitsu. April and May will see four cars and three courses.
Some of the DLC will be available in bundle form. On February 16, you can buy a pack with all the DLC through May for ¥1,600. Through February 29, this will be discounted to ¥1,000.
The details are a bit unclear, so we'll have to wait for Namco Bandai to make official announcement (presumably later this week, once Famitsu hits newsstands). However, it does look like you'll be able to up the course and car count for a low price, if you act quickly.
