The lights are on
Comic Con 2012 gave us a quick look at the larger than life boss battles found in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.
Konami wouldn’t disclose any new details about the game’s story, but during our demo Raiden fought a giant Metal Gear Ray. Raiden and the Ray tear up a city street, knocking over cars and cutting light posts in half during the chaos. Whenever he gets a chance, Raiden would unleash a furry of slashes on the Ray’s legs. As you’ve probably seen during some of the Metal Gear trailers, Raiden caught one of the Ray’s semi truck sized sword strikes in his hands, and through a quick time button event threw the giant mech into the air.
The demo was brief, but the game is coming along. The controls are tight and we loved slowing down time to aim our sword strikes and cut enemies in half. The action is also completely ridiculous; during one moment, Raiden ends up running along the top of a stream of missiles before cutting a helicopter into confetti with his sword.
Imagine this epic battle yourself through the magic of our screen gallery below.
