Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
Konami's still on a trailer binge, but fortunately the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance clips have been worth watching. The publisher has released a pair of new trailers from Platinum Games' take on the franchise, and it's looking like this Raiden guy has potential.
The first video serves as an introduction to some of the game's robotic enemies. They include the hulking, chest-beating Mastiffs; nimble, bipedal Raptors; and the Grads, which is essentially a walking turret with a mean swipe kick.
The second trailer highlights a few of the more conventional enemies. This being Metal Gear, "conventional" includes the multiarmed woman pictured above. Raiden can take the weapons from his defeated opponents and level them up. Even their default states look deadly, however. The pole arm and sai look like they'll be handy against long-range and close-up enemies, while the scissor blade looks just plain mean.
Look for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance on the PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 19.
