Samurai Warriors Chronicles has received its first downloadable content in the form a new free stage, Battle of Ariokajou. It’s the first of several free levels that Tecmo Koei plans to release.
The DLC map should automatically download for anybody with Spotpass enabled in the wireless options menu. Downloaded stages are played in the “Gaiden” section of the campaign’s chapter selection screen. I’m not seeing it myself, so we in the West may be waiting a little while for it.
Destructoid reviewed Chronicles this weekend and wasn’t all that impressed. Still, free DLC is always good, especially as that’s something I’m actually stoked for with the 3DS. Here’s hoping such things continue.
