Raiden is in Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood
Man, some high-ups at Ubisoft and Konami must be banging, because this Metal Gear Solid/Assassin’s Creed thing* is just weird. Anyway, according to a Joystiq tipster, Raiden is an unlockable in Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, and he/she said you unlock him by “virtual training” in the Animus. That seems remarkably easy for an unlockable like this, but we’ll see about that soon enough.
Raiden, though? I mean, I understand that it’s cross-promotion for MGS: Rising, which is on the horizon, but come on. Raiden is such an annoying douche, even though he is kinda crazy awesome as a fighter. It is only an “outfit,” though, so hopefully he won’t open his mouth.
*For those not familiar with the situation: back in the day, Altair was unlockable in Metal Gear Solid 4.
