Magna Carta 2 Updated to 1240; DLC Available Now

It's a bit alarming to buy a game and before you're even able to put it in the disc tray, there is DLC on the marketplace that adds extra achievements. Well, if you didn't pick up Magna Carta 2 when it was released early last Firday, prepare to be alarmed!
On its official release date (yesterday), the "Magna Carta 2 Bonus Pack" showed up on the marketplace with an accompanying nine new achievements. Having pre-ordered it myself, I began working through the game when it dropped last week. Unfortunately, these new achievements require the collection of every weapon in the game (including the two bonus weapons for each character included with this DLC), something I had not been doing. Needless to say, I began a new game last night.
The other part of the new DLC are three "Live Dramas" which are simply short, amusing cutscenes involving the game's characters. You launch them and view them from the main menu of the game.
The only good thing about all this? For the Japanese market, this DLC pack was split into six sections and sold for a ridiculous 320 MSP each, a total of 1920 MSP. We here in the US can enjoy all that content for a mere 400 MSP. So, if you'd like extra achievements, 2 new powerful weapons for each character and three Live Dramas...
Note: These achievements and this DLC does not appear to be available for the European version of the game.
