Metal Gear Solid: Rising: Revamped: Revengeance: Part FourPosted: August 15, 2012 | |
Noted hero and food picture taker Hideo Kojima took to Twitter to mention that that game will be released on February 19th in North America, the 21st in Europe, and the 22nd int he UK. The game has been in the works for quite awhile by Platinum Games (Bayonetta) and features hack-and-slash gameplay instead of the traditional playstyle Metal Gear is so well known for. You can catch a trailer here.
The game does look very awesome so far. It’s set a few years after the events of Metal Gear Solid 4, so Raiden is doing OK. What horrifying events have occurred that require Raiden to come to the rescue instead of Solid Snake, who knows — it’s kind of like if you called for Captain America and Spiderman showed up. Whether or not there’ll be a Snake cameo certainly remains to be seen. In any case, the game seems to involve you massacring robots and human beings (who are probably not human, but cyborgs or something) with an awesome sword. In all seriousness, I do wonder if Hideo Kojima’s long-running theme of allowing you to beat the game without killing a soul will stick around — I kind of doubt it.
I’ll be pre-ordering it, for the record. What do y’all think? Pre-order? Wait to see the reviews? Skip it?
