Hey Dalton!!! Huge fan of the game here, I was wondering if the Snake Soul weapon was exclusive to Japan? Because for them this pack came with the sword, and there’s no mention of it here. Also wanted to know if word could be spread to the devs for a Stealth Camo add on :-) every cyborg ninja needs his stealth camo.

Hi Dalton, a MGR fan with a R3 English edition disc here. Ever since the launch of the game, there have been no word from your Asian counterparts on whether R3 users (outside of Japan, of course) will be getting any DLCs at all, not to mention this time limited offer. I have tried messaging them to no avail. If it is possible, can your team give them a kick up the backside and ask them to start making the MGR DLCs available for us MGR R3 players? I have tried going from the starting screen to downloads, or search “metal gear rising” but there are always no results shown. Hope to hear some you guys soon.

I’ll download it but some VR missions in the base game are already so hard to get 1st spot, takes the fun out.

Hi Dalton, can we please have Metal Gear: Portable Ops playable on the Vita. People have long awaited this title to be released, is there any chance it will happen? Thank-you, and all the best.

Sucks that this game ruins the MGS storyline even though “Solid” was taken out of the title. They should’ve took “Metal Gear” out of it too. The game is terrible. You can easily get through it by tapping up on the analog stick while you’re attacking with the square button to be immune to EVERYTHING. DmC took more skill than this. Since MGS4′s ending is ruined thanks to this desperate cash-in attempt I’m done with Metal Gear in general. It’s now clear that they’re going to do nothing but milk it and continue running the story into the ground.

^ Couldn’t disagree more. Almost flame bait territory. Rising is the best action game to have come out of japan since devil may cry 3. And for any respectable mgs fan this game is a like a childhood dream come true where you finally get to play a ninja.
edit: oh wait you actually quoted the new DmC title lol, I’ll disregard that post completely.

Working on these now. It’s really difficult.

Do we get the Snake Soul Sword for being all 30 VR missions? Or was that a JPN exclusive within the DLC?

+ IXxHIJACKERxXI on March 13th, 2013 at 1:40 pm said:

I unlock the red sword at the end of the game i think is sam sword

Sad to say this, but the Snake Soul Sword isn’t included in the DLC. Even if you gold all 30 DLC VR missions.

Loved Metal Gear Rising. Thought it was a great expansion to the Metal Gear universe and loving the ongoing support of the game.
I’m dying to have Metal Gear Portable Ops on my PS Vita though Konami. I know that the online support for the game in ending at the end of this month but I still think this should be made available for the Vita as it has wayyy more to offer than it’s online components.
Instant moneys for you if you made that MPO, MPO+ and Graphic novel bundle you had for PSP available on the Vita!

@12

I’m glad you like the game and that you are passionate about it, but please don’t say this ” And for any respectable mgs fan this game is a like a childhood dream come true”. I happen to like MG, but lack the enthusiasm for hack ‘n slash games. Just because I like a series doesn’t mean I MUST like every single game in it, regardless of the genre that each game is.

I don’t know, it was just something I had to get off of my chest. Happy slicing!

Downloaded and playing right now. I can assure you it’s definitely NOT easy.

@ Dalton Link

Like everyone else on here I wanna see MGS Portable Ops on Vita too. Every other region has it so there’s no reason why we shouldn’t either. Please make it happen.

+ clupula668 on March 13th, 2013 at 6:53 pm said:

Glad to see these. Thanks, Konami.

Now, while you’re at it, is there any chance of putting Portable Ops on PS3? It’s the only canon title in the series not on there and it’s kinda upsetting.

+ clupula668 on March 13th, 2013 at 6:54 pm said:

@11 – Sounds like someone only plays on easy. No wonder you like DmC.
