‘Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance’ Looks Like The Futuristic ‘Desperado’ Of Video Games

Hideo Kojima tweeted the above pic showing the official MGR:R web site which features a shiny new trailer along with an official release date of 2/21/23… in Japan. Womp womp.

Even though we still don’t have a U.S. release date, this is shaping up to look pretty redonkulous. Slicing dudes through walls, fighting against (and alongside) chainsaw-tailed panther robots, running atop a barrage of missiles toward a helicopter and proceeding to slice it into smithereens. I can’t NOT think of Robert Rodiguez-style action while watching this thing.

Check it out for yourself to see what I mean.

Yeah, I’m sold. What about you guys? You digging the new direction of the Metal Gear series, or does this just leave you pining for the stealth action days of yore?
