    Wonder if we’ll ever see him here. Took so long to get Kat that I had given up hope.

    Nothing about localization of PS3 version U___U

    It might sound crazy but this would actually make me buy that game.

    Still boggles my mind that Kiryu isn’t in PSASBR but Hot Shots Golf….

      It’s pretty simple really. Kiryu does well in Japan, can’t even get localized in the West. PSASBR is a bigger deal in the west…see the problem =? Still, I do hope this DLC comes overseas too.

        And yet Raiden got in despite the fact his game Revengence wasn’t released at that time… I really wanna question to whoever green-lit PSASBR about his decision making…

          The decision making was pretty simple. “We’re going to celebrate MGS 25th soon and for our upcoming game, Raiden is the star. Can you please use Raiden for PSABR” simple as that.

      Not surprising to me. That game is a mess of bad decisions. So disappointing.

      i hope he get’s announced as a fighter in Virtua Fighter 6 :)

  • talesoffan

    How about including the rest of the world in the “World Invitational?”

  • PrinceHeir
