More info is bursting from Konami about the non-canon Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and man I can’t wait to fire it up! As a die-hard Metal Gear fan, I admittedly was hesitant at first about an all action, high speed slash and slice game starring the whipping boy of Metal Gear Solid 2 – Raiden. Bringing on Platinum Games to handle the heavy lifting has given the game a much needed shot of adrenaline. Playing as the Cyborg Raiden, fresh from his scene stealing time in MGS 4, is definitely high on my radar now!
Thanks to gamescon, we have a tank load of screens, concept art and even a flashy video that should make even the nay-sayers shush their mouths! Happily we can also report that the game is finally ready to say when we’ll get to wield that massive sword ourselves – February 19th, 2013! Talk about keeping warm during the winter Konami.
Hit the break and skim through the press release, ogle the pics and watch the video multiple times! Let’s do this Raiden!
METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE Slices onto the PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360® in February 2013
Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced that it will release METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE in North America and South America on February 19th, 2013.
Developed by Kojima Productions and PlatinumGames, METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE takes the renowned METAL GEAR franchise into exciting new territory by focusing on delivering an all-new action experience unlike anything that has come before. The title brings two of the world’s most respected teams together with a common goal of providing players with a fresh synergetic experience that combines the best elements of pure action and epic storytelling, all within the expansive METAL GEAR universe. METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE introduces Raiden as the central character; a child soldier transformed into a cyborg ninja, equipped with a high-frequency katana blade and a soul fueled by revenge.
In the near future, cyborg technology has become commonplace throughout society. Three years have passed since the collapse of the Patriots system that had been secretly controlling the global power balance from the shadows. However, peace remains elusive. The dissemination of cybernetic technology has triggered instability and conflict as those who control the trade gain increasing power. Furthermore, large ‘Private Military Companies’, or PMCs, that had been supported and controlled by the Patriots have collapsed, spawning countless rogue entities with origins to larger criminal organizations. These renegade PMCs employing cyborg technology have become increasingly more disruptive shifting policy and power at will. As a member of the peace-keeping PMC ‘Maverick Security’, Raiden lives by the mantra of protecting and saving lives. But as the world plunges further into asymmetric warfare, the only path that leads him forward is rooted in resolving his past, and carving through anything that stands in his way.
