The latest Famitsu has details on Katamari Damacy Novita’s download content, revealing that it will receive missions and song packs. What’s better is that you may even be able to earn the right to download some for free.
According to the magazine, as you roll you’re Katamari about in the stages of play, you’ll find items known as “Fan Spirits.” Find ten of these items and you can exchange them for free download content.
Sounds great doesn’t it?
You can also use the Fan Spirits, which appear to act as currency, to buy download content, since you are able to purchase them at a rate of 50 yen for one, 130 yen for 3 and 200 yen for 5.
As for the DLC missions, the first of these is due for release simultaneously alongside the game and is called ‘Snowman’. Your mission here is to build a four meter snowball. The other is called ‘Shopping’ and involves picking up the most expensive goods for your katamari in five minutes. The latter has no release date as of yet.
Whether the ability to earn free DLC will come to Europe and the U.S remains to be seen, but it seems like a great idea to us.
