Talking swords and robot dogs coming to Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

Release Date: 27/02/2013

Metal Gear Solid: Revengeance has already won over critics and slashed its way into the charts, but Konami hasn't finished with the title yet. The enjoyably barmy melee combat game from Bayonetta developer Platinum Studio will be getting a bunch of extra weird stuff as downloadable content.

First up will be a suite of 30 new VR challenges. This add-on will also introduce a bizarre new weapon - a wooden sword that speaks with the voice of Metal Gear icon Solid Snake. There will also be a mission where you control a dwarf gekko droid with three arms, and a side-scrolling section where you must batter your way to victory unarmed, just like arcade beat-em-ups of yesteryear.

The second DLC pack will allow you to play as Jetstream Sam, the nemesis of Revengeance star Raiden. Konami has released a screenshot of this add-on, showing Sam going up against a towering Metal Gear Ray. A third downloadable update will allow you to play as LQ-84i , a robot dog.

The first DLC pack is dated for April in Japan. It's been confirmed for Europe but doesn't have a date yet.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is a fast-paced and quite brilliant combat game with a unique swordfighting mechanism. You're able to direct Raiden's sword slashes precisely, and dismembering enemies is the best way to refill your health. Fans of ingenious Japanese game design will love it. It's out now for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
