Marvelous entertainment announced today that four “new” characters will be launched as DLC for the game on March 16th, which incidentally is the same day as the game’s launch.
Quotation marks around the “new” are obligatory, because while they’re separate characters you can select in the game, they’re basically just the ultimate secret ninja art form of four existing girls:
We’ll get Yumi Ice King Mode, Asuka Ultimate Mode, Miyabi Black Wing Mode and Homura Crimson Mode.
The DLC will cost 1,800 yen including taxes for all four characters, but players will be able to purchase them at a discounted price (1,600 yen, about $14) until April 3rd. Individual characters will also be available for 500 yen each.
You can check out screenshots and art below, keeping in mind that they’re from magazine scans, so quality isn’t the best.
If you want to see more, you can check out the first five guns available in the game in a few gameplay videos, and the second group of five, on top of a whopping 20 minutes of gameplay filmed at a recent demo event.
