Then you have 6 different swimsuit DLCs for Ares and Alice. This is great for Western fans because in the Japanese release, these swimsuits were all spread out in various store-specific pre-order bonuses, as is often the case in Japan. This meant that if you wanted all of these costumes, you had to pre-order the game from various stores. Usually hardcore fans do this, get the DLC product codes, and then resell the extra copies.
Five of these DLCs are already available. The 6th DLC, The Holy Knight and the Bibliophile Swimsuits, will be released on April 26, 2022.
