Japanese PSN release for September 13th

A very small, very strange update for Japanese PSN users today. The following item is available for free:
  • FolksSoul new Folk "Gemaga editor-in-chief"
That probably doesn't make any sense to anyone at first, but let us explain. In FolksSoul (better known to non-Japanese as Folklore) there are monsters called "Folks", and you can capture these monsters' souls and use their powers against your foes. This update adds a new monster, who just happens to be the editor-in-chief of Japanese video game magazine Gemaga. He uses his narcissistic pose to unleash a barrage of flower petals to attack enemies... or something. Let's just say today's Japanese PSN release is like an inside joke that no one but the Japanese could understand, okay?

3. So freakin' awesome. Wish the US market would do cool things like this. What magazine editor would they turn into a Folk though? :)

4. @1: If they seriously added a Patcher folk I would probably consider getting this game.. LOL

5. Completely awesome.
I can't wait for this game, and if there is a Patcher folk that shoots random numbers, I'll buy 2.
