1 Bamboo Staff - "Staff of Endurance" (resistance to all elements)
On the one hand, Nippon DLC offers very little in terms of the content, you get few item, all related to Japan. Nowadays the price is cheap, proportional to what we get, frankly speaking almost nothing. So why have I given four starts? It's because this DLC was released to financially help after 2011's earthquake that stroke Japan and made big damage to the country.
The dlc for magicka is pure awesome, first it was released with the motive that, The sales would go to the charity for the great tragedy japan suffered. Secondly at 99 cents it offers a great value. The nippon dlc for magicka contains the following addition to the base game 1 Kimono robe 1 Katana - "Yawarakai-Te" (cuts through armour) 1 Bamboo Staff - "Staff of Endurance" (resistance to all elements) 1)The kimono robe looks very cool, fans of the samurai will love to use it to customize their character. 2)Katana - one of the few weapons in the game that ingnores armor, very quick best to use in close encounters and pvp duels, The weapon becomes a bit hard to use when there is a huge mob and ranged enemies. 3)The bamboo Staff is the main strength of this dlc, it offers great resistance to all elements which means , Those nasty spell casting enemies in the game cant damage you much, works out well in pvp too.As the opponents are force to get close to hurt you, you can slice them apart with the Katana. Hoping for more japanese themed stuff for magicka soon. probably a map and some ancient quests.
An one dollar donation isn't really much. So I am sure you'll be able to miss that one euro/dollar from your wallet. Not only will you donate to help our Far-East friends in a time of need, You'll also receive some DLC for it. The idea of a donation is not to really receive anything in return, you donate to help the others in need, therefor this is great DLC. Even if it's only a robe, a weapon and a staff. Very noble by both developer and publisher, good job!
I personally bought it to make the Magicka experience complete. But you do not really need it at all. If you want the complete game and also have all chars, get this DLC. It does not add anything significant to the game, it's just for fun. Get it when it's on sale, or if you want to help Japan, get it now.
The Nippon dlc for magicka game introduces some new features, however insignificant, in the gameplay. The good news is that it can be shared with all who play in coop without the need to own it. It is a simple and inexpensive way of further develop the base game, but which is very well possible to do without them without affecting the gameplay itself.
