    Guess who earned themselves a purchase?

  • Why can’t this edition be released for English version as well? I would have definitely saved my money to buy this when it is released next year.

  • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

    A shame the Japanese version is censored. I would’ve shelled out Yukichi-san for that premium edition.

    • AuroraXIII

      What did they censor? Do you mean the white synthetic blood? Because I actually prefer that.

      • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

        Yup, that’s what I mean. It’s way more intense in the EU (except Germany, which will probably receive the same version as Japan) and US versions of the game. It struck my chord as I saw the demo played life at TGS. Obviously white or red “liquids” are a matter of personal preference but it’s still censorship.

        • AuroraXIII

          I don’t really mind gore, but I prefer the white blood in this game because Raiden had it in MGS4 and the enemies in this game are also cyborg.

          So I think white blood fits better in the canon.

          • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

            yep, you’ve got a point. I just consider the American version to be way more intense. on the other hand I can’t decide on the VA’s. English ones seem better than the Jap. ones in this game, which is not surprising as Platinum usually leads with English VA’s or does not include Jap. ones at all.

            • AuroraXIII

              English VA has Quinton Flynn, so it instantly wins. lol

              Wait… which of their games didn’t have Japanese VA?

        • xMCXx

           Because jizz is better than blood!

      • the white colour blood is the offical cyborg blood. Haven’t you played metal gear solid 4? just asking

        • AuroraXIII

          Yeah I know that dude. Nothing I said indicates that I haven’t played MGS4.

          Read my other comment to ro-kurorai below this.

  • z_merquise

    A Yoji Shinkawa artbook alone is already a good package with the game and yet it still got other neat stuff.

    Way better than that lamp included in other region, that’s for sure.

    I read in NeoGAF that a Gray Fox DLC skin was also included.

    • AuroraXIII

      This article already mentions the DLC skin and even depicts it in the gallery.

      I agree about the artbook. I hope most of the art is from the original Solid:Rising.

      • z_merquise

        “Cyborg Ninja skin download code.”

        D’oh! Didn’t noticed it. I was looking for the name ‘Gray Fox’ in the article and didn’t find it.

    • PrinceHeir

      oh man im amaze on this game O_____O

      everything, the fluidity, the sword play mechanics, even the Zan Datsu concept(albeit a different version) is excellent.

      the only thing i didn’t like is how the enemies are there standing as each one of them dies.

      then again it’s on normal so i think the higher difficulty games will have a agressive AI.

      even though i miss the original Solid Rising Zan Datsu concept.

      im amaze on how Platinum Games manage to convince me that this game is gonna be special!!!

      after seeing this, i hope Sega asks them to make a Shinobi game that is similar to Shinobi/Nightshade or Kunoichi from the PS2.

      Shinobi in much more fast paced with gameplay mechanics from Platinum Games would be SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      already pre ordered Zone of the Enders HD Collection LE

      shame gamestop didn’t have anymore. despite hating that store, i wanted the poster with Rising Revengeance and Zone of the Enders HD LE wallpaper back to back so that kojima can sign it whenever he cames here in NY.

  • Souji Tendou

    Only 3.000 Yen more for the PA Kai figure, seriously? Whoa, then I have to get that. Just hope it won’t be overpriced when it’ll be sold in my country.

  • margherita mastropaolo

    i’ll get this on day one no doubt about it

  • EspadaKiller

    Is the 9980yen version only exclusive through Konami Style?

    • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

      nope, amiami and nippon-yasan both have them on pre-order ;)

  • KingOptimusOrigins111

    Looks okay still not getting it.
