Check out my little king's sexy new pirate outfit. It's just one of the many bits of downloadable add-on horse armor now available in the WiiWare game Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King.
If you didn't think Square Enix was already taking you for a ride with the game's $15 launch price, they're hitting their fans up for almost as much cash all over again with the first round of downloadable content. If you buy everything, it'll cost you $13.
Did you notice that Crystal Chronicles only contains one of the series' four different human races? If you want Lilties, Selkies, or Yukes to populate your game world, you'll have to pay three bucks each or eight for the full set. Other add-ons, like outfits for the characters and new dungeons, run between 100 and 200 points, or $1 to $2, each.
Of course, since this is the Wii, you first have to log back into the Wii Shopping Channel and re-download an updated version of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles that contains the in-game download store. And if you forgot to delete the old one first, and don't have enough space? Back to the Wii menu to clear out the fridge.
