Racing Sony Puzzle PS Vita Bandai Namco News Action

Namco Bandai have announced that all three of their Playstation Vita launch titles will be supported by an abundance of extra content after all three titles (Ridge Racer, Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen and Touch My Katamari) are released on the 23rd of February (Australia and New Zealand), launch day for the Playstation Vita. The extra content includes applications, demos and post-launch downloadable content.

For Ridge Racer, the “Ridge Racer Gold Pass’ will be available after launch for AU$11.45 on the Playstation Network. However, if you pick up the title at launch at retail or purchase the digital copy before March 31, the Gold Pass will be free. This is what it includes:

  • Five new cars: PROMESSA, ELENIE, DIGNISTAR, FATALITA and MELTFIRE
  • Three new courses: Old Central, Sunset Heights and Lost Ruins
  • Two new music tracks: NEW SONGS PACK 01
  • One new extended music mix: LONG MIX BGM 01

The DLC doesn’t stop there with the ‘Silver Pass’ seeing a release from April, adding more content to the game for AU$9.95. An app for the Vita will be released later in the year, featuring an interactive audio and video experience that will give fans a unique taste of the Vita iteration of Ridge Racer. The app was co-developed by Namco Bandai and Cellius in Tokyo, Japan.

For Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen, a demo will be released, which will include the tutorial and one mission so that gamers can get a taste of the stealth ninja title. It will also have post-launch DLC, featuring eight monsters and their out of this world minions for more satisfying stealth kills.

Touch My Katamari is following the path of Shinobido 2 and will have a demo and post-launch DLC. The demo will include a tutorial and one mission and will be released in early March. For post-launch DLC, Namco Bandai will offer more levels, which include Snowman!, Shopping, Maid, Downhill, PAC-MAN and Soccer and Downhill with Toro. Premium DLC such as Fan Damacy and Music, will also be released over the coming months. These will help players unlock missions, broaden their Katamari musical horizons and more.

All three games will be released on February 22/23 alongside the Playstation Vita.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
