Second Rising DLC dated

Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH will release the first character-centric DLC for its best-selling METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE title on April 9th/10th. 

Entitled ‘Jetstream’ and released for both PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360®, the new content focuses on the character Sam, seen in the full game. The new DLC adds a new chapter to the main game, and delves into the motivation and origins of the character. Segueing into the events of Raiden’s plotline, Jetstream’s side story features Samuel Rodrigues as a playable character.

Sam - AKA the ‘Cool Brazilian wind’ -  was a lone swordsman who brought terror and chaos to the underworld in Latin America. Having slashed through the world's outlaws as a part of his training, he arrives in Denver, Colorado. During the course of the DLC, users can experience the events when he challenges ‘World Marshall" to test his skills. At last, the hidden story behind Raiden’s popular rival will be revealed as the user guides Sam through all-new stages within the REVENGEANCE game world, with the intuitive control system of the main game adapted accordingly.

METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE moves the renowned METAL GEAR franchise into exciting new territory, with its focus on fast-paced sword-based action elements. It has been co-developed by Kojima Productions and PlatinumGames, and unites the story-telling of the METAL GEAR universe with pure non-stop action.

The ‘Jetstream’ pack will cost 9.99 Euro/£7.99 for PlayStation®3 or 800 Microsoft Points. A third DLC pack, focusing on the robotic Blade Wolf character will follow soon after, with details announced soon.
