War. War never changes…except when you are basically a cyborg with a sword that can cut through anything! Enter Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, where you get to play as Raiden as he slices through everything. Watch out, helicopters!

The story as we know it is this (from Wikipedia):

Set several years after the events of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, the story will focus on the former agent Raiden who is to be encountered by cyborg enemies while aiding in the rebuilding of an unknown country.

Let’s just hope there are no nude scenes in this one.

The game has had a somewhat rough history, jumping from being developed by Kojima Productions (when announced in 2009) to Platinum Games (in 2011). If you were hoping that this game might be an extension of the Metal Gear Solid series in terms of stealth action gameplay, according to this video you might want to look elsewhere.

Still, though, you get to chop up helicopters.

Look for the game in early 2013 for Xbox 360 and PS3.
