Assassins, mercenaries, angst-magnets, and psychopaths. You would think that Cerberus may have tried recruiting a master thief by now, just to even out the existing cast of murderers.
Enter Kasumi Goto, an faceless celebrity with more enemies than everyone aboard the Normandy combined. Like everyone else, however, she's got lots of enemies and the usual mysterious background -- enemies Shepard probably needs to deal with once she joins up. What, you thought Cerberus might bring in someone wholesome on the mission?
Nothing is free, of course, and Kasumi will require a favor in return for her services: help her break into another criminal's vault. Something valuable is likely being retrieved, if the DLC's title, "Stolen Memories," is any indication.
If you're on a replay file, consider picking her up next month. BioWare and EA are asking 560 Microsoft/BioWare Points ($7) for 360 and PC versions. In the meantime, the free Firewalker DLC will be out tomorrow.
Long-time BioWare fans can snicker at Kasumi's surname and picture her as a floating metal ball.
