Konami held a press event for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance this week, and have shared new footage of the game to coincide with their promotional efforts. The two new videos, “Ray” and “Mafutisu,” can be viewed below. Make sure to look out for Raiden’s Mariachi uniform in the second video!








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

  • Mariachi Raiden? What are the odds… He needs a ‘stache, though.

  • sperium

    And they said this game diverged too much from the Metal Gear series! RAY is still the lamest Metal Gear ever! Nothing changed! 8D

    • OatMatadoQuatro

      You remember Ray and Rex destroyed each other in Guns of the Patriots?

  • Curan_Altea

    So I guess you fight Ray as a tutorial.
    Can’t say I’m against that.

    • Raiden was able to take out a small army of prototype Rays before he even got his first cyborg implant, so it should probably a peace of cake for him now.

      • Curan_Altea

        I’m aware of his greatness, but as far as tutorial enemies go it’s pretty decent.

  • Wake

    Anyone planning to buy the limited edition? That damn lamp is taunting me. It’s expensive. I don’t need it. I can already feel the buyers remorse and I haven’t even bought it yet. But somehow logic takes a hit and that makes me want it more. Damn you lamp.

  • sperium

    Also good to see our old friend cardboard box is still present~

    • neocatzon

      now, with mariachi hat :D

  • Brandon001

    damn, looks like a fun, NON-CANON, ride

  • Tales_of_Master

    I lost it at the part where Raiden was still wearing that Mexican hat over the cardboard box XD I’m really loving how Platinum Games managed to keep the game true to the Metal Gear series. I believe that if Team Kojima was still developing the game, it would never have looked this good. Defiantly one of my most anticipated games of 2013 :D

  • Crevox

    The majority of it seems scripted and/or QTEs.

    Can’t really have an opinion of it yet, but at least it looks cool.

    • neocatzon

      Had you play their (Platinum) games? Vanquish and Bayonetta also have QTE but they don’t left you from the action. Losing scores and the fights entirely possible.

      • Crevox

        I played Bayonetta and there weren’t too many QTEs from what I remember. This looks like it has more.

        • neocatzon

          Vanquish also don’t have much QTE. Well, It’s Platinum we know they will doing it right.

    • Nitraion

      Usually is not easy as watch… *_*
      like bayonetta i thought it is easy game looking at gameplay video..

  • Budgiecat

    No Move support?

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    I wonder how is the cardboard box useful this time

    • Grenalie

      Well apparently you can still do a no kill run.

  • Magus KilIer

    That was pretty fucking cool,except those qucktime events,but apart from those,that was awesome

  • Gerald Williams

    Ishaan for the second video you should put Mastiff in staid of Mafutisu, thats what the enemy actually is.

  • Would I be wrong in saying that the majority of people enjoying this game AREN’T going to be MGS fans? I, for one, am not a series fan, but that’s not gonna stop me from playing this one bit!

    • z_merquise

      Not entirely wrong.

      I’m a fan of Metal Gear series, I like fast-paced action games, I’m a huge fan of Platinum Games and them working on this is like a dream game that I never thought would happen.

  • z_merquise


    That’s the song during the Metal Gear Ray boss fight in the video:

  • hurt me moar dawg

  • sibarraz


  • Göran Isacson

    Can’t say I really understood the differences between when Raiden blocked and actually managed to parry the RAY into a position of weakness. At least I THINK those slow-mo sequences when he jumped up and cut of specific parts of the RAY’s armor happened when he had succesfully parried an “arm-sweep” from the RAY. What was that Blade Mode Raiden activated in order to cut all the missiles- something you can manually activate, or something that is activated for you?

    I do wonder why that gorilla jumped down… it would’ve been pretty cool to see Raiden wall-run UP to it and knock it down that way. I also wonder what made them decide that going into the upgrade menu should kick you back to the latest checkpoint… game balance, I guess? I like that even the game lampshades how terrible the poncho is, but on the other hand is Raiden really still the type to make such mistakes?

    Did Raiden speak Spanish when in the sombrero? Good lord, a cardboard box with metallic foil lining to shield from cyborg eyes. That is truly advanced, next-generation warfare… with sombreros.

  • Nitraion

    I see you still hold my favorite Cardbox….

  • kensei

    i am mariachi raiden
    viva el burrito!

  • margherita mastropaolo
