quoteSourceLots of free music packs, eight cars and six courses by the end of May 2012.
Following confirmation that Ridge Racer for PS Vita would ship with a paltry three courses, Namco Bandai has confirmed the release schedule for DLC - the game will expand with six further courses and eight cars.
However, before the proper DLC begins to roll-out from February 23, players will be offered a selection of Music Packs free of charge.
Japanese DLC Release Schedule:
In Japan Ridge Racer will retail around 20 per cent cheaper than other retail Vita titles, though all the DLC will raise this price to be in-line with the other retail releases.
