We first got to grips with Raiden’s high-frequency blade towards the end of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, but Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance promises to take the cyborg ninja’s swordplay and selection of blades to a whole new level entirely.
The latest gameplay trailer for MGR: Revengeance shows Raiden slicing up enemies with four of the seven blades he can unlock and upgrade during the game. It seems like you’ll need to be strategic about which blade to select for the more challenging encounters as some of them have special abilities such as being able to stun enemies or break armour.
Take a look below:
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be released for PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 19th in the US and February 21st in European territories.
