Konami and Platinum Games have had a hard deal from fans of the Metal Gear Solid series- yet that does not stop them from attempting to hype the game up as much as possible.

With the release date of the Metal Gear Rising  closing in, trailers are surfacing, showing new enemies and techniques, and highlighting the zan-datsu (cut and take) mechanics of the game quite nicely.

Metal Gear Rising will follow an original storyline taking place several years after the events of MGS4, with Raiden being the main character. Although it has been in development since 2009, fans of the series are divided over the idea- only time can tell whether this game will be worthy of the name “Metal Gear“, or whether it will be rejected completely. I, for one, am excited.

And how can you not be, once you’ve seen this trailer?

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be launching on February 22 in North America and Europe on Ps3 and Xbox 360. The game will also receive a special edition containing a few goodies and the game’s soundtrack.
