Besides my obvious glee about getting the name right in the title, Konami has announced some cool DLC for early adopters of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance on the Sony Playstation 3 (sure it is probably on those other inferior systems but who cares about those?). Basically, fans will get a free code to unlock a custom Cyborg Ninja body to use while playing the game.
There is no time date on this offer so it may be limited to the first month or so of sales. This is a decent way to get people to buy a game early on (prior to price drops take effect for instance) especially if they don’t offer it as paid DLC later.
As stated by the press release: “The game will be released on February 21st/22nd, and KONAMI has announced that every copy will include a free DLC code to unlock a custom Cyborg Ninja body for use in the game. Based on the design of the hugely popular character Gray Fox from the original METAL GEAR SOLID, the Cyborg Ninja DLC not only allows users to assume the guise of the popular character, but it also allows them to use and upgrade his powerful FOX BLADE within METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE.”
