Last month Konami announced that it would be releasing two separate DLC that for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, each expanding upon the original story. Today, the first of these two DLC hits the digital download realm.
Merely named “Jetstream Sam,” the DLC will allow you to play as the Raiden’s cyber samurai nemesis, Jetstream Samuel Rodrigues. According to the Facebook page, the new DLC will not only take place during the events of for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, but also delve into Jetstream Sam’s origins.
To commemorate the release, Konami has also released a Japanese trailer and I’ve got to say, Sam looks pretty badass. I mean, way more badass than Raiden-badass. It could be that I didn’t bother to get all of Raiden’s moves when I beat Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, but it looks like Jetstream Sam has more amusing moves to use, too. How is it that Raiden always seems to get outshone all the time? Even in his own game, people gravitate towards the other characters.
Anyways, the “Jetstream Sam” DLC will hit both XBLA and PSN sometime today. The price is expected to be $6.99, but there’s been no official confirmation on the pricing from Konami.
