Konami has sent a lot of images over for the PS3 and Xbox 360 special editions of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance when it hits on February 21st/22nd next year. It's also asked everybody to talk about 'pre-order incentives'.
Frankly at least its calling these "pre-order incentives" which is exactly what they are, rather than, "pre-order bonuses" or ven "rewards" which is what every other company seems to say. Anyway, details, details for the return of the occasionally mocked, Raiden.
Well, the "European Limited Edition comes with a ca. 30cm figurine of the cyborg agent from the Play Arts KAI series. The Raiden White Armour figurine will only be available via this limited release, with just 25,000 units available across Europe for 99.95 Euro."
Next! "The Special Edition is available exclusively via Zavvi in the UK, and will also include a special DLC code to access the White Armour Raiden in the game, with an additional benefit that this incarnation enjoys an increased capacity to carry life-recovery items."
And the incentives? There are two, "offering a choice of steelbook covers and unique DLC. The first features a Raiden illustration by Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
ís Character Concept artist, Yoji Shinkawa, and the DLC unlocks Raidenís Inferno Armour, thus increasing the number of throwing weapons he can carry. This will be exclusively available via the GAME chain of stores when pre-ordered. The second steelbook is available when pre-ordered from independent stores and features a render of Raiden, and has a DLC code for the Raiden Commando Armour, which allows his access to a larger number of projectile weapons."
