Release dates announced for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

With Gamescom just getting started this week, the news of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance release date made a splash. Later that day, there was a Tweet by Hideo Kojima. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be released on February 19, 2013, for North and South America, February 21st for Europe, and February 22nd for United Kingdom.

This game is being developed by Platinum Games, the same studio that developed Bayonetta. Metal Gear Rising is a hack-and-slash version of the Metal Gear series. Instead of controlling Snake to do the hacking and slashing; you will be in control of the cybrog ninja, Raiden.

I cannot wait for this game to come out. After getting a sneak peak during E3, I was blown away. But I have to admit at first I did not like the idea of a Metal Gear game without Kojima’s full control. Though that has now changed, I can see myself having some fun with this.

Check out the trailer below.
