  • Really hope Bayonetta 2 is a complete game at launch. I don’t want all this post launch DLC or retail specific pre-order bonus. Revengeance has more than I expected .

    • Herok♞

      Well Bayonetta 2 is on a Nintendo Console and the only DLC of note is Fire Emblems and even then they still give free maps and characters so were good.

      • Akimitsu

        I do believe that New Super Mario Bros 2 has DLC, too. I’m not sure if it’s paid or free, though.

        • gamerdude

          Paid and pretty pricey for the little amount of content too.

    • Kaihedgie

      Why are we still complaining about something that’ been around durin’ the days of the Dreamcast

      • Guest

        Still focusing on the future for a corrupted and greedy world I see?

        • Kaihedgie

          No. Get a job. :P

        • Kidou

          Why does this guy sound like a Metal Gear boss’ quote?

    • LynxAmali


      But that’s…..

      you do realize this is optional, right? You DON’T need it.

    • Exkaiser

      I’m pretty certain Revengeance is a complete game.

    • Suzaku

      This DLC is free, at least. If only for a limited time.

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    I would love if they made a parody of Big Boss’ nightmare from Snake Eater in a VR mission. It could focus on Raiden fighting zombies but he starts turning into a zombie the more he fights. Once Raiden is 100% zombie, Boris wakes up wondering what the the hell was that about.

    • Christopher Nunes

      That… would be… hilarious.

      Someone has to do it! :D

    • JakatoX

      DUDE! They should totally recreate the Guy Savage Nightmare sequence!…..Maybe even make it a full mini game through VR Missions lol

    • Göran Isacson

      Words cannot describe how much I want them to revisit the Guy Savage concept. A skin for this game, a bonus game, a new nightmare, just… something.

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    I hope they also add them to the 360. I’m tired of console wars.

    • Dyne

      Hate to tell you this but “war never changes”

      • Exkaiser

        “War. War has changed.”

  • z_merquise

    So this is only available in US PSN? I read that someone who had an Asian copy of MGR tried to download this at US PSN and it worked.

    I’ll try it myself when I got the time. I hope mine works too since my MGR is also Asian version (R3).

    Curious on why DLC VR missions is only for PS3. Time-exclusive?

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      AFAIK this is only exclusive to PS3 in NA. Japan didn’t even get a 360 release… so I assume all other regions are also getting this on PS3/360

  • Visa Vang

    I was just thinking about that too… It’s scary isn’t it? I must say that I am very interest in Sam and Blade Wolf’s story. Also, is it just me or they just skipped the whole “Blade Wolf has joined your party!!” thing because I’ve no idea where Blade Wolf came from, just a little bit that he was with Sam for a while.

    • Zal_Yagun

      there are codecs that deal with everything not explained in ingame cutscenes.

      what makes its easy to miss them is that Rising doesnt hammer during gameplay that story codecs are available like in MGS.

  • Göran Isacson

    Since I didn’t get this at launch, I wonder if I should just hold out and see if there’s going to be a “ultimate edition” with all the DLC available on-disc or not…

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    I bet that we will learn that Sam’s father believed in Katsujinken (The sword that gives life). I mean why do you think he was so interested in testing Raiden’s beliefs?

    • Suzaku

      What was known of Sam’s father makes it sound like he taught Satsujinken as a staple of their dojo, and was in bed with the Brazilian mob. Their family sword is even a Muramasa, whose swords were known in Japanese folklore for being bloodthirsty.

  • Nitraion

    April huh only time will tell which version i should buy…
    where is that snake wooden sword…

  • Sadly EU citizens need to pay for the extra VR mission :/

  • Can’t wait for the Wolf DLC!
