Square Enix’s Play Arts makes some of the coolest action figures in existence. Their new Raiden figurine for Metal Gear Rising is no exception.
They recently sent Hideo Kojima himself a figure… of himself. They placed his on the thing instead of Raiden’s — the result is a one-of-a-kind action figure. Hideo took it a step further, removing his head from the figurine… and putting it on top of a Solid Snake figurine. It just goes to show, no one likes Raiden.
Nah, that’s not fair. I played the Revengeance demo and it is an incredibly cool game. I’m looking forward to the full thing for sure.
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.
Well, Hideo Kojima’s secret was let out of the bag before the Spike TV VGA: Metal Gear Solid Rising is to be developed by Platinum Games (the Japanese developer responsible for Bayonetta) and not Kojima Productions nor Konami. The project, which has already seen two different lead producers (and not Kojima himself), may also get a new subtitle: Revengence (which may or may not have something to do with revenge).
Whether or not it will be Metal Gear Solid Rising: Revengence or It will be called Metal Gear Rising: Revengence, and we can all assume with some certainty that revengence will be had.
Kojima previously assured fans that it would be a slightly faster paced game than the MGS series known for its “Tactical Espionage Action”, but by the looks of the new trailer (not yet online), things are set to speed up quite a bit.
