180w ago - SCEA Santa Monica Studio Managing Producer Deborah Mars has revealed today that Fat Princess is getting fatter, with both Fat Roles DLC and a Fourplay Party Feature included in PS3 Patch version 1.06.
To quote: On Tuesday June 29, our favorite heiress to the throne will get a little added bulk thanks to our good friends at Atomic Operations, and we can't wait for all you Fat Princess fans to check it out!
Fat Princess Fat Roles DLC (USD $4.99) unleashes Pirates, Ninjas and Giants (oh my!) into the world of Fat Princess. These three new character classes bring a whole new level of awesomeness to the frenzied 32-player battles alongside our beloved royal beauty.
After picking up the DLC, a new multi-class magic hat spawner will be activated in every level of Fat Princess. Pirates can call in cannon ball attacks, Ninjas can hide in the shadows to sneak through doors, and the all-mighty Giants can cause rumbling earthquakes and gain health by chomping on their enemies.
We're also very happy to announce that Patch 1.06 activates the new Fat Princess Party feature!
Due to the overwhelming fan response, Patch1.06 delivers four-player same-console co-op for FREE to everyone...

Slated for sometime next month, MAG v1.06 will add a number of requested new features to the game that should please fans regardless of their play style.
Not only have we made it much harder to accidentally kill fellow teammates, for example, we've also expanded the Medical Kit's functionality to give users total control over who they heal (allies or themselves), while updating the experience system that surrounds it.
Other new goodies include improved vehicle handling and physics, new gun ports for APCs, weapon efficiency adjustments, credit cost changes, and updated medal and ribbon requirements.
Another nice addition is that we're also giving users...
