After being handed over to Platinum Games, who are known for titles such as Bayonetta and the wonderful, over the top Vanquish, this new entry in the critically acclaimed Metal Gear series is set to boast super fast-paced action with a flashy cyborg ninja. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will bring Raiden into the spotlight as never before.
PlayStation Blog posted their thoughts on the demo they played on E3 earlier this month. And they have some juicy details for you, with Blade Mode sounding incredibly fun. Here’s what they have to say:
Blade Mode is very simple: you activate it using L2, which triggers slow-mo and a zoomed-in camera view while Raiden gets into slashing position. You control the sword with the right analog stick: Everything in the path of the sword will be severed, whether it’s a structure, the body of an unfortunate combatant, a vehicle…even a girl’s dress
Yes, you can cut through a woman’s dress using the Blade Mode. What the consequences will be of doing so, they did not mention, but another reason to buy the game, right? Revengeance also runs at a butter smooth 60 frames per second, guaranteeing a lag free experience as you cut through hundreds of soldiers, Metal Gear Geckos and… dresses. Can’t forget that now.
Unfortunately, there is not concrete release date but with early 2013 being the release window. We cannot wait to slice up every little thing around us with Raiden’s HF blade… including dresses.
