Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance introduces Raiden as the central character; a child soldier transformed into a cyborg ninja. If you’re not familiar with Revengeance, it follows Raiden from the Metal Gear Solid series, as he copes with being turned into one of the world’s finest killing machines
Most of the action in this new title by Platinum Games will involve you cutting things into very small pieces with Raiden’s blade. How could you not like the sound of that.
Konami Digital Entertainment has announced that Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, a new action title produced by Kojima Productions and developed by Platinum Games for Xbox 360 and PS3, will be available in North America and South America on February 19th, 2013.
The player has total control of the main character – the cybernetically-enhanced Raiden from Metal Gear Rising 4: Guns of the Patriots – and a total freedom of how users control him. As such, the game title has been subtly rebranded to reflect the more action-based content than in previous Metal Gear Solid titles.
This is pretty much the same Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance trailer from E3: 2012, but with a cute little bonus thrown in.
