Once again, Hideo Kojima and his merry band of developers have created one hell of a trailer for an upcoming game. Microsoft’s E3 press conference revealed the first gameplay footage of Metal Gear Solid: Rising featuring the once hated Raiden as the lead character. Now of course he’s a complete badass and knows how to use a sword – much to the discomfort of those around him. For an Xbox 360 game this looks very close if not identical to Metal Gear Solid 4 on the PS3 in terms of graphics but is appears to focus solely on balletic hack and slash instead of sneaking and shooting. Direct control over the angle of slicing is shown during specific segments of slowdown so some kind of focus metre or special skill is likely to be included. Metal Gear Solid: Rising is a lot more violent than previous MGS games that nearly always allowed for a peaceful solution. I’m not sure if Raiden remembers what the word peace means! Check it out and hopefully soon we’ll get an official release date.
