April Fools 2011: Ar tonelico Qoga gets DLC, Special ControllerThis one's for the fans. Seriously.04.01.11 - 9:59 AM
A recent press release by NISA announced plans for the release of DLC for Ar tonelico Qoga
The press release states, in part, "due to fan demand, both in the U.S. and in Japan, Gust has decided to release a nude DLC for Ar tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel. The U.S. release of this DLC will be on the same day. Those who download the DLC will be able to access a new level in the Cosmosphere, as well as a tentatively titled 'naked mode' where Reyvatails' song powers will increase. The DLC will cost $9.99 upon its release in late May."
Added to this, NISA has also announced the concurrent release of an Ar tonelico-branded controller. This controller will come in two versions, one skinned with the character of Saki and another with the character of Finnel.
"These controllers will be specifically designed to be used with Ar tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel, and will allow ergonomic control of Ar tonelico Qoga's amazing exploration and battle system with the use of one hand. They will have the same basic functions as a dualshock, including vibration functions. They will retail for $49.99 upon release. We are very excited to be bringing these innovative methods to enjoy our games to fans of our series; without the fans this would not have been possible."
Looks like those who felt disappointed after buying Ar tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel will get a happy ending after all.
