Solid Snake will be making an appearance in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, as a DLC wooden sword.

During Revengeance’s World Launch Party in Tokyo yesterday, Kojima Productions revealed some of their future DLC plans for the title including 30 odd new VR missions and a special wooden sword infused with the soul of Solid Snake. It is called the “Soul Snake Wooden Sword” and everytime you swing it, you will hear Snake’s voice.

Additional DLC will explore LQ-84i’s and Sam’s back story in some way shape or form. All of this DLC will release in or around April. That’s all we know for now.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is due next week on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
