Metal Gear Rising Trailer Features New Cyborg Enemies, Stealth Gameplay

By Kris . September 20, 2012 . 12:25am


While previous Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance trailers focused more on the combat-heavy aspects of the game, this one also shows off some of the stealthier things you can do. It has Raiden carefully slicing cameras and hacking into enemy robots (which you may recognize from MGS4) to carefully incapacitate guards.


On top of that, the trailer also shows off couple more cyborgs that Raiden will be fighting, including one who can attach robotic arms to herself and another who can extend his mechanical limbs to obscene lengths. Also be on the lookout for the fight with Samuel Rodrigues that leads to Raiden being recreated as Black Raiden.


Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be released in North America on February 19th, 2013 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

    mexican cyborg !
    lol radian became a bad ass now

    • I don’t know who Radian is, but I agree, the mexican bit was hilarious.

      “Adios, amigos!”

  • aoihana

    Stealth…? Looking out for cameras…? ┐(‘~`;)┌

    I thought such concepts were discarded long ago, but it’s nice that stealth is considered amid all the rabid chaos. I decided to skip out on the fights, since I’d like to experience those myself, but it’s looking (◕‿◕✿)

  • Rogerrmark

    This video actually got my hopes up.A little at least.

    • What don’t you like about it? It honestly is looking pretty incredible. They even added some stealth stuff, and it all runs on smooth 60 fps. If it’s about the lack of PC port, Kojima said they’ll take a look at the interest.

      • Rogerrmark

        Yeah,I liked because of the stealth stuff the added again. Had lost interest,after Konami said it was a non-canon spin-off,and the stealth elements were removed.I’m looking forward to the game again,now.

        • catly1

          It’s canon

      • Cephrien

        .. Did you say 60 fps??

  • This trailer sold me… more.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Lol Raiden first scene launching from the plane makes me remember of Gundam a lot lol.^_^

  • I’m not going to be able to sleep now. Oh, and I need a ton of new pants. Thanks Platinum.


  • Godmars

    Not creepy in the slightest that those armed balls are becoming game mascots…not one bit…

  • LustEnvy

    I… am speechless. I can’t handle all that awesome.

  • z_merquise


    Would there be another hands-on for this game? I hope there would be another one from you guys since the one for TGS would be different from the previous demos in E3 and Gamescom.

    • Kris

      I’m not at TGS, so I won’t personally be doing another hands-on! I’m not sure about Spencer, though.

      I’m personally curious to see if the demo in ZOE HD will be the TGS one. I’ve played the E3 one 4 times now, so I hope it is! XD

      • z_merquise

        Yeah, I’m also hoping the demo included in ZOE HD would be longer because the one in E3 seems to be just a tutorial level.

  • Paradox me

    I’d pick my jaw up off the floor but I can’t seem to take my eyes off the monitor.

  • Not too shabby… But it’s disappointing to see the lips are synced only to the English audio. I can’t stand Raiden’s english dub

  • Mazdian

    O.O That’s the Platinum touch I know and love! Just wow…

  • Syn

    My brain just had an orgasm and died, then came back to life in order to allow me to play the game………….I see de….. cyborg people…..

  • Tales_of_Master

    Good god this trailer got my blood rushing O_O It’s unreal how amazing this looks. Can’t help but to feel that this game is infinitely better than whatever team Kojima was gonna put out. Big ups for Platinum games, they’ve really done it this time.

  • TheDarkEmpress

     Sweet mother of God….soon enough the dictionary definition of “action” is going to need to be spelled “Platinum”…these people have this down to a science…This game seriously went to something that I scoffed at to something that I’m now wildly anticipating. Good job on Kojima’s part to bring this to Platinum and good job on Platinum to deliver. This rant definitely sounds fanboyish and it kinda is, Platinum has always released quality, and honestly I think a title like this should’ve been developed by them anyway. Obviously for standard MGS games it can’t be anyone but Kojima, but for a game like this? Yeah, Platinum all the way!

  • Jake Caro

    Holy mother of cyber ninjas…

  • Scallion

    Everyone in MGS4 died in vain, but the good news is that eternal conflict looks really effing awesome.

    • OatMatadoQuatro

      This world is exactly what the president from Metal Gear Solid 2 predicted:

      “Picture a massive political vacuum, a space that every power-monger will try to fill for their own greedy ends. I’m talking about an unregulated power struggle — panic, civil war… chaos. Like it or not — the Patriots is an organization that must continue to exist.”

  • Minko Tsurugi 民子鶴来

    And suddenly I don’t miss Bayonetta 2.

    • margherita mastropaolo


    • Anime10121

       I never did miss it, as I’m getting a Wii U, and that game is part of the reason why ;)

    • And suddenly I feel sorry for DmC.

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    The hypest!

    The Adios amigos part… was that supposed to be camouflage?
    Also, have you noticed that he has red blood here?

  • SLick123456789111

    Roided Gekko’s confirmed.

  • z_merquise

    Wow. Just wow. Impressive. Awesome. Bad-ass. Epic. Humorous too (El Sombrero Raiden).

    Platinum Games always impress. Kojima Productions made the right choice to hire them.

  • margherita mastropaolo

    this game looks fantastic,i’ll preorder it,twice

  • MrRobbyM

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand that was the trailer that finally sold me. Very impressive, Platinum.

  • Anime10121

    The insanity in this trailer intrigues me.Oh who the hell am I kidding, this looks FREKING OUTSTANDING!  Metal Gears trademark weirdness, humor, and over the topness is all on display here, and the gameplay looks fun as all heck.  If people are still crying about this not being Kojima Production’s Metal Gear Solid Rising, they need to reevaluate themselves and make sure they know what “fun” is :P

  • I love you Japan.

  • XiaomuArisu

    Holy Snake!
    Best spin-off ever!

  • Sperium3000

    This game is looking more and more awesome by the day. Specially since this trailer showcased some cool bosses. Both the MGS series and Platinum’s games have a history of awesome boss fights, so meshing the two together? ALL ABOARD THE HYPE TRAIN! TOOT TOOT!

  • I am very excited for MGR. The game looks more and more impressive every time I see it. I cannot wait to get my hands on the demo with the ZOE collection. 

    •  Yeah, I can’t wait for that 40 dollar demo with 2 extra games myself.

      • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

        What’s funny is that the original ZOE was (largely) passed over for having a MGS demo included.

        History, thou has repeated thyself!

        (Though I hope it really doesn’t happen that way again…)

  •   The redhair boss looks badass :O …

  • vileBrenman

    Lol mexico gear rising at the end there. maybe we will meet the long lost mexican bootleg versions of the characters like salsa snake and soap operacon.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Salsa Snake and Operacon need to be real characters. This absolutely must happen now lol.

  • Göran Isacson

    I can seriously not stop looking at this without thinking it’s like some kind of eighties/late nineties cartoon ala G.I Joe but with the blood turned up to eleven, because… robot dog buddy. Named Bladewolf. I can almost hear the commercial right now.
    “Raiden must fight and defeat the evil Badnik army from taking over the world!”
    *Various kids fling action figures around and press Raiden into a corner*
    “But luckily he’s got his trusty partner Bladewolf at his side!”
    *One of the kids brings out Bladewolf which knocks all the enemy action figures down with a springloaded swing from his chainsaw tail*
    “Grr! Woman-at-arms, Extendo X, we must retreat!”
    “Only together can they push back the Badnik horde and save the day! Bladewolf sold separately from Raiden figures, batteries not included.”

    I wonder what it says about me that I found the final stinger with the sombrero to feel more like Metal Gear than, well… anything else in the trailers seen so far.

  • Platinum Games, I take my hat off for you guys. What an epic trailer this was.

  • Helepythia

    First thing I see, an Obama-like figure in chains.
    I go: “Whuuuut?”

  • Nitraion

    XD can’t wait….

  • Solomon_Kano

    I don’t know how they do it, but Platinum has managed to ratchet the awesome up significantly with every single trailer.

    Raiden launching from aircraft? The chainsaw tail-having robot dog getting a nice black sheen to match Raiden’s? Some stealth? Those creepy arm-ball things combining to fight you? There’s just so much cool in this one trailer that I might have to buy two copies — one for me, and one for anyone who doubts the awesomeness of Platinum.

    • and we still have what 4 months to go – geesh i’m dying! DYING!

  • Kevin Lor

    HOLY CRAP! This trailer did it for ME!! I’m buying this game for sure now

    • Kevin Lor

       CRAP!! Forgot my PS3 broke down couple days ago ><

  • My jaw dropped, and… It’s not coming back up ^^; 

  • Bruno Diaz

    Doesn’t seem like stealth to me but who cares, i’m not going to buy it for the stealth, i want to slash everything i see!.

  • neetyneety

    This game is going to be EPIC.

  • Lucky_x

    Ridiculously awesome. I had faith that Platinum would do this game justice and judging by the trailers they’ve gone above and beyond my expectations. One of my most anticipated games this year!
