Moon Diver – PlayStation Network DLC Release Schedule Revealed
Fans of crazy, side-scrolling, four-player co-operative action games rejoice! The (currently only available via PlayStation Network) Square-Enix title Moon Diver (£9.99) is getting plenty of DLC, and we have the release schedule for you. The first pack is already available, but there are two others on the way!
Developed for both the PlayStation Network and for Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Moon Diver delivers frenetically fast-paced gameplay and a classic side-scrolling perspective for up to four players locally or via online cooperative play. Pricing and availability for the Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 will be announced at a later date.

Moon Diver DLC Pack #3: Chain Kill Mode

Developed by feelplus inc., Moon Diver was created by Koichi Yotsui, the visionary game designer behind one of the most iconic arcade action games of the last two decades, Strider®. While Moon Diver certainly pays homage to its side-scrolling ancestor with hordes of enemies and gigantic bosses, the game innovates in a number of ways, including entirely modern three-dimensional graphics; a dynamic and intuitive character experience and levelling system, and four-player local and online co-op with the ability to instantly drop in and out.
Moon Diver also features a number of unique, selectable, upgradeable and cooperatively combinable character special abilities called “MoonSault Combinations”, which can dramatically alter the field of play at any moment – from powerful area-of-effect attacks to critical passive power boosts to simple, yet effective, invisibility.
Moon Diver is available now via PlayStation Network for £9.99.
