Today D3 Publisher announced the first DLC for its upcoming JRPG Maglam Lord, and it’s a rather special one.
The DLC will offer deco items that will change the appearance of weapons in the game to that of well-known ones from the Tales Of series, and also change the battle music accordingly.
We get to see swords from Tales of Destiny, Tales of Innocence, and Tales of Hearts.
The DLC doesn’t have a release date yet. It will be announced at a later time.
The collaboration shouldn’t be too surprising. While it isn’t a well-known fact, D3 Publisher is actually a subsidiary of Bandai Namco.
Maglam Lord is developed by Summon Night 5 studio Felistella, while the scenario and the world view are by Summon Night series writer Kei Miyakozuki.
The character design and illustration are by lack, who is known for having worked on Fate/Grand Order (for instance, the art for Izou Okada).
The soundtrack is by Puresound, which worked on the Summon Night and Metal Max series.
The main theme is by Chiaki Fujita of Sing Like Talking, who previously worked on the theme of Summon Night 2.
If you want to see more about Maglam Lord, you can also check out the first screenshots, the first trailer, the first gameplay, more screenshots, and the opening cutscene, even more screenshots, another batch, the previous trailer showing Daris, one for Sharm, one for Mauve, and one for Julett.
It’ll release in Japan on March 18 for PS4 and Switch.
A western launch has not been announced just yet, but D3 Publisher recently reiterated in our interview the intention to keep localizing its games in English.
