By Stephany Nunneley, Saturday, 3 March 2012 19:22 GMT

Namco has announced that when Ridge Racer is released for Vita on March 13 it will include some free DLC, but only while supplies last.

The retail version includes a code inside the box for a free Gold Pass which unlocks five additional vehicles, three courses, and extra pieces of background music.

The same Gold Pass is also available for free to all fans who purchase the digital version of the game on PSN no later than April 30.

Here’ details on the content:

  • Five additional machines: PROMESSA, ELENIE, DIGNISTAR, FATALITA and MELTFIRE
  • Three additional courses: Old Central, Sunset Heights and Lost Ruins
  • Two music tracks: NEW SONGS PACK 01
  • One new extended music mix: LONG MIX BGM 01

The game will also be updated with an improved frame rate and crisper graphics, and in April, more content will be released via the Silver Pass which will allow access to more cars and courses “at one low price.”

More information will be made available closer to release.
