Gamescom in Germany is underway and the typhoon of information is coming in by the late hour. Metal Gear series creator Hideo Kojima confirmed via twitter the release date of the highly anticipated spin off, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, as being February 21st, 2013.
[UPDATE] Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced that it will release METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE in North America and South America on February 19th, 2013.
Seems to me that Kojima Productions and Platinum games have a couple of surprises up their sleeves! Wait till the very end of the footage to see see the latest addition. Check out the video now!
Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today unveiled this new METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE gameplay footage. The new footage shows the first few minutes of the official demo which we played at this year’s E3. I honestly wasn’t too interested in this game, but after playing it at E3, I am definitely picking it up.

Imagine living in a world where cyborgs rule and various military groups have employed these cyborgs as their personal bodyguards. Fortunately for us, that world is contained in Platinum Games’ Metal Gear Rising. I was very skeptical at first, however, it took me less than 5 minutes to be submerged and fully embrace the world of Metal Gear Rising.
The game starts off in a courtyard where a person with a German accent is explaining the controls. Targets raise up off the ground, revealing at first, standalone silhouettes. The second batch of targets are a little more challenging, as they appear to be holding hostages. This is where the fun begins. You hold down the L1 button and the game goes into a slow motion, Max Payne bullet time-style mode. With the right analog stick, you guide the “cut line” (indicated by a orange glow) where to cut, then you simply flick the right analog to that direction, and there you have it!
As the demo progresses, you work your way up the chain, so to speak, by fighting cyborg soldiers one at a time, and sometimes even two at a time. Later on, a Gekko shows up meaning to ruin your day, but you make short work of it by grabbing its tentacle and spinning it around like a stringed Yo-Yo. That’s the way I disposed of it, however there are hundreds of other ways. “Ninja Run” was demonstrated, where you simply hold down a button and you can dash on and around cars, over walls, evade attacks, and “rocket jump”.
Last years Konami Pre-E3 show didn’t really fill us in with anything new. But hey, it was pretty exclusive and was held at Sony Studios in Los Angeles. This year, however, they opted for a more low cost event and they decided to have a live stream online. Watch it and sound off in the comments section!
Warning: Video is 30 minutes long. You might want to let if buffer if you want to watch it in HD. Check after the jump for the entirety of the conference.
