By Spencer . October 20, 2013 . 10:01pm

mgsdlcKonami is bringing Raiden back just in time for the holidays. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Special Edition comes out on December 5 and includes all of the downloadable content in one package.


You get Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, the 30 VR Missions, Jetstream content, Bladewolf content, wood katana weapon, five costumes for Raiden (including the MGS4 Raiden and Grey Fox costume), and a Metal Gear Rising theme for 2,480 yen ($25).


Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Special Edition has not been announced for an overseas release or Xbox 360 since the game was a PS3 exclusive in Japan.

    Glad I waited to pick this up, but I wasn’t expecting this. I WAS expecting it for MGS4 but that didn’t happen other than the trophy support. Hopefully they’ll announce it overseas since every “special” version has been released so far.

    • Mr_SP

      Not entirely sure how MGS4 could get a special edition with all the DLC that it never had.

      • ShinStar

        It doesn’t need DLC for a “special edition.” Look at what they did for Metal Gear Solid 1-3.

        • Mr_SP

          You mean a expanded version? Well, that’s not what this is. This just the original game and the DLC. No new stuff. This is even less than getting trophy support – this is just cheaper, that’s all.

  • New Raiden game by Kojima Productions pls.

    • Ferrick

      as long as it’s a stealth game, they could do it, but if it’s another mgr style, then the kojipro team can’t do it

      • Mr_SP

        New Raiden game from Platinum… Not bad either.

        • Ferrick

          wonder if kojima will make the story even more over the top this time lol

          • GVmanX

            Kojima didn’t write Rising, unfortunately; while he was satisfied with the plot, I wasn’t.

          • Ferrick

            yes, Etsu Tamari is the lead writer, but kojima still had a hand in the project’s storyboard, though it’s a spin off, you may take that as either a plus or a minus, but eh

            on the other hand, it would be rather interesting on how fighting nano machine zombies using gray fox will feel like

          • Nice Boat Quatro

            That was actually a joke since before that comment Kojima said he hated zombies in gaming.

          • Ferrick

            yeah i know lol, though if kojima were to write the story, it wouldn’t be a raiden game, since he wanted gray fox to be the star instead of raiden

  • XypherCode

    Good thing I waited.

        Same here.

    • Mental

      If there’s anything I learned from the Wii U & PS Vita launches, it’s that waiting benefits.

    • Atwa

      This doesn’t really contain that much, the two DLC packs are really cheap, so it wasn’t exactly a glowing example of worth waiting.
      I played the game 7 times and got the DLC and well worth my money, so glad I didn’t wait.

    • Luis Ibal

      pd. dat cover.

  • JMaster3000

    Dammit! I thought this was the PC version >.>

    • Ferrick
      • JMaster3000

        Yeah i know but i’m waiting for the release date >.<

        • Ferrick

          patience young padawan

    • Kudan

      Waiting for a complete PC version and Castlevania Mirror of Fate HD on PC as well, i hope this one comes out as well because so far only a console version was announced.

  • Snazzy. Here’s to hoping that it comes here.

  • Asura

    If this comes to the US for $25 or less, I will buy it with gusto! As much as I love Platinum, I’m too poor to buy any game full price anymore, and the character DLC alone practically bring the game at its current price back to full.

    • Luis Ibal

      same here!

  • fool

    Wow are games getting cheaper in Japan or something?

  • hazelnut1112

    If for some reason they want to make this extra special by adding an English Language/Text option included with this, then I will be super excited for this game. Especially being dirt cheap for a Japanese import.

    • Ferrick

      it would be a better purchase too since english copies may never get the soul snake (wooden) sword

    • Aoshi00

      I imported the limited edition with steelbook before. Both the us and Jpn version of revengeance had Jpn and eng menu and subtitles, just not each other s audio.. I might get this with the dlc and nice cover art. This is the cheapest release that I’ve seen yet, even more so than the best version, no shrunken ugly cover art either :)

      • British_Otaku

        You forgot the white blood right? I recall that being a difference between the versions even though in the plot, they are supposed to have red blood or something… Some people did seem to prefer the white blood on forums, maybe they would double dip if they made both an option for the localised release.

        *Insert poor insight about Japanese games representing gore*

        • Aoshi00

          lol yeah, Raiden and other cyborgs bled white nano-juice instead of blood in the Jpn ver.. I prefer the gushing red blood in the US ver, made the fight against Sam that much more brutal when he got his arm cut off.. at least the white blood worked in the context of the game. but if people are looking to import this re-release w/ DLC and Jpn audio, it does have Eng text option. Horiuchi Kenyu sounds badass as Raiden..

  • dahuuuundge

    good things come to those who wait. I’m glad I boycotted the game because Gray Fox skin is locked as Gamestop preorder exclusive.

  • SoundMatch

    I bought the original on Day one for $400 (US$49.99). How hard in the ass did I get fucked?

  • Onizuka Gio Hikari

    Sooooooo glad I waited I actually really love the game and been excited for it but the play time kinda killed some of my hype >.>

  • Kj Kim

    only on japan? so sad..

  • Kj Kim

    only on japan? so sad..

  • BalmungX

    Now I wait for an overseas release or a Xbox one

  • Matheus Mendes

    I hope they release this for Xbox.

  • Skeptika Crediblus

    Well, hell. Shoulda waited….

  • Neppygear

    I never got around to getting Revengeance, so this is nice.

    Overseas release pls?

  • JoJo_649

    Yay, the Gray Fox costume is worth the wait!

  • Kudan

    I hope that what comes with the PC version and we hear about tat release date soon.

  • monkey king

    I’m assuming the PC version will be released then too.

  • Naruto

    Can’t they just add the gray fox dlc to the playstation store?

  • abnerayag

    will all the dlc/extras be on the disc?

  • Imo this kind of thing is disrespectful with the fans! They release the game and right after lots of DLC, so a while later they release a package including all of it for half the price! I bought the game but didn’t buy the DLC’s. If I had bought it I’d be extremely pissed off atm. This DLC thing and special edition is getting ridiculous!

  • Göran Isacson

    I do hope it will make it onto western shores as well, getting my hands on that DLC and the original game in one go is something I’m quite eager for…
