Konami has delivered a three-minute gameplay trailer for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Revengeance is being developed by Platinum Games, who took over the project from Kojima Productions in 2011. Platinum has beefed up the action side of the game while de-emphasizing stealth. The game’s original title, when being developed by Kojima Productions, was Metal Gear Solid: Rising; the change to Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance reflects the game’s break from series’ traditions.
Raiden, the child soldier turned techno-ninja, is waging a one-man war. He dices up mercenaries, tanks, and mechs alike with his sword. Elsewhere in the trailer, we see him wielding a rocket launcher and some sort of spear.
Konami is bringing a playable build of Revengeance to E3 this week. We’ll see if the Ninja Gaiden comparisons continue once gamers get a chance to actually try the game.
