Katamari Damacy Vita To Get DLC

News PS Vita Bandai Namco Puzzle Sony

It seems Namco Bandai is gearing up for more downloadable content for its games. This time, the Playstation Vita launch title Karamari Damacy Novita (known as Touch My Katamari in the West) will be getting post launch downloadable in the form of missions and song packs. This was revealed in the latest issue of Famitsu magazine.

The way to obtain DLC for Katamari is interesting to say the least. It involves collecting Fan Sprites, which are little pink people with hearts on their heads. If you don’t mind a little hard work, then you can obtain ten throughout the levels and use them for free DLC. If that is too much work for you, then you can purchase Fan Sprites in one (¥50), three (¥130) and five packs (¥200).

Famitsu has also revealed two of those missions. Snowman will involve the player building a four meter snow ball. This mission will be available at launch. The second mission is Shopping. On this mission involves picking out very expensive items for your Katamari within five minutes. This mission has yet to receive a date.

Outside of DLC, the magazine also looks at the Near functionality. Using Near, players can obtain records from friends. There is an incentive to beating the scores. Beating the scores will win candy for the player, which they can trade in for new costumes.

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 DarkspawnI 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!
