Fresh Folklore content coming

Four quests and new folk up for download soon

Sony has revealed the plan of attack for downloadable Folklore content. Associate producer Eric Fong explained, "First, I would like to thank you for helping make our little game a big success. Without your support, deep and innovative games like Folklore would never be made, and quite frankly, I would be out of a job."

With the company line out of the way, he continues, "So, you've played through Folklore, been to Hell Realm and back, and you want more? Well, you're in luck! Starting this month, and only on the PlayStation Network, you'll be able to purchase new downloadable add-on packs - each to include a new costume for either Ellen or Keats, a completely new Folk, and four additional quests that extend the Folklore story."

We can only presume that the content packs are "only on the PlayStation Network" because the game's only on PS3.

Add-On Pack 1: The Kidnapped Folk
Set during the timeframe of the original story, this is your opportunity to return to Doolin - gateway to the Netherworld - and take Ellen and Keats' extraordinary adventure a little bit further. The quests include a mission to recapture a kidnapped Folk and an attempt to regain the trust of Brumbear's soldiers. The pack also includes a new look for Ellen and a Folk called Maximillian who has a mean cannonball attack.

Add-On Pack 2: Bottom of the Sea
Search the seabed for a mysterious item requested by Damona, get to the bottom of an accident that takes place in the Endless Corridor and complete the Wandering Thoughts mission started in "The Kidnapped Folk" Add-On. For Anime fans, Keats gets a "familiar" body suit that appears when he is in his "trancenscion" state and can face Phutcampus, a new Folk to defeat.

Each parcel will go for $3.99 apiece, or bundled together for $5.99. As usual there are no details about Euro deployment of the goods but we'll pester Sony for a release date.
