Finally getting excited about DLC

Last month, Capcom Unity confirmed that the Western version of Dual Destinies will follow Japan’s suit and also have access the additional episode “Turnabout Return”  that will be able to be downloaded as part of DLC. As a huge fan of the series, I welcome this with opened arms. It was later confirmed that we will not be getting the games extra quiz dlc because a lot of the questions are linked to Japanese culture. Regardless, it is excellent news for fans of Phoenix Wright.

Nowadays, it is extremely rare to see gaming companies not expanding on their game via DLC. From a business point of view, it makes sense. That said, when it comes to the consumer, the feelings are not mutual. I have been playing games a  majority of my life and as far as I remember, I can only recall purchasing DLC for two games:  Halo 3 and Street Fighter 4. Fair enough it has not been around for long...but you get my point. 

I personally have nothing anything against DLC, just as long as the publishers do it correctly. A good example of how to do it incorrectly is what Capcom (ironically) did with Street Fighter X Tekken. Don’t know about this one? Capcom released the game with 12 additional characters to unlock via DLC. Don’t sound bad? Not yet, maybe. These additional characters were already on the disc! You are pretty much going to the store, purchasing an incomplete game and the only way to get the full game is through an additional fee.

Getting back on topic, I am very much looking forward to the release of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies. I feel it is these kind of games that DLC is most suited for. I just hope they work just as hard on the DLC episodes as they do on the ones in the full game. If so, then this is the correct way to do DLC.

Phoenix Wright – Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies will be released in Q3/Q4 of this year on the Nintendo 3DS. It will be a digital only release via the Nintendo eShop. You can see the trailer to Dual Destinies below.
