We have some great news for all you Metal Gear fans out there: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is now available for the NIVIDIA SHIELD! The only thing better than this news is the fact that, as a special introductory price, you can snag the game for just $14.99, 50% off the sticker price.
For those of you who have not played the game before, Metal Gear Rising is a hack and slash action game set four years after the events of Metal Gear Solid 4. The stealth mechanics from the other games in the series takes a back seat in this one, but the fast paced action here is a great stress reliever. You follow Raiden — the protagonist of Metal Gear Solid 2 — as he slices his way through the battlefield seeking vengeance. The action is great, and as always in this series, the story-telling is even better.
For those of you hoping to have the same experience as the original game, do not fret, this Android port is a “Faithful, complete version of the experience.” That being said, it doesn’t mean they haven’t added some features to sweeten the deal. These features include:
- Menu options that allow you to play all cut-scenes and conversation videos after you’ve completed the game.
- 60 Google Play Achievements to earn.
- Gameplay is sync’d to your associated Google Play Account
- Full SHIELD Controller support.
- All DLC released to the console versions are included
- Customized body upgrades for Raiden
- Full 720p HD resolution
I am an absolute geek for the Metal Gear universe, so I’m ecstatic that Rising is being ported over to Android TV. If you are also interested in this game, then I would hurry to snag it, that special introductory price ends on January 31st.
