After a hiatus, Metal Gear Rising reemerged with a name modification, new developer and a smoking extended trailer. Now set some time after Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Revengeance will tell a tale of the cyborged to the hilt Raiden in an all out action game. The sneaking is pretty much gone, hence the dropping of the “Solid” part of the title. Players get to concentrate on slicing and dicing enemies like a true ninja cyborg equipped with a high-frequency katana should. How can you go wrong with dismembering PMCs, other enhanced baddies and even Metal Gears?
The game got a shift to Platinum Games, with Kojima Productions over seeing the shenanigans. Platinum, home of Bayonetta and Vanquish, is leaving their over the top action mark all over the title. Some fans felt slighted by the new direction but I can tell you I’m excited for the game. As a very long time Metal Gear gamer, I think it’s time to slaughter some enemies in style. I mean the original version wanted to reward us for not killing bad guys, now we get to! That’s a win in my book! Hit the jump to check out some new screens and the extended trailer. Make sure to watch the end of the trailer for an old-school MGS bit.
