Everything's better with anime eyes
Free titles such as Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Remember Me may sell PlayStation Plus subscriptions in Europe and North America, but Sony is plumping up for a different strategy in its home territory. As spotted by Siliconera, the platform holder has produced a complete ten-page Manga in order to promote the premium service in Japan.
While we can’t read any of the comic ourselves, we can confirm that it stars an arrow with a face on it and a Lycra-clad lady with a cape. Apparently, characters include ‘Game Trial Boy’ and ‘Discount Woman’. There’s also a robot that appears to have a pet ghost – or something.
These kinds of guides are allegedly quite common in the Land of the Rising Sun, as this documentation on databases evidences. You can check out the full Manga for yourself through here. And don’t worry if you don’t understand the language – it’s probably more fun adding your own storyline to the images anyway.
