Further information has been released concerning the Sazh DLC due out on the 28th of February, and pictures of Serah and Noel’s new downloadable costumes- due out on the 21st- have surfaced! The costumes are priced at 300 yen/240 MSP, and the Sazh DLC is priced at 600 yen/400 MSP. Not too shabby if that carries over to the Western releases of that stuff!
The story of the Sazh DLC involves Sazh’s adventures in Serendipity. It adds two new table games to the experience, both of which Sazh tries out during the course of his episode. One of the games is called Chrono Bind, and it is apparently played on a table that resembles the face of a clock. The second game hasn’t been detailed yet, but Famitsu promises that it will be doing so in its next issue. What exactly Sazh is involved in in Serendipity and how/if it ties in to the main plot remains unclear, but we don’t have long to wait to find out.
The Serah bikini outfit was already detailed, but apparently Noel’s new outfit is armor that is granted by Etro to warriors who defend time. It certainly looks mystical enough- though I’m sure a great deal of you are disappointed that Noel didn’t come with a bathing suit of his own. So what do you all think? Love it or hate it, excited or disappointed, as always you’re welcome to discuss the subject in the forums.
Thanks to extraordinary forum member Lymle for bringing this to our attention.
EDIT: Thanks to our intrepid staff member Chat Noir we have a few new screenshots of Sazh’s scenario to show off, including a couple scenes from the story itself as well as shots of the new card game to be added to Serendipity.
