Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance release day locked down

Wednesday, 15th August 2012 08:45 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance has been given a release date in both Europe and the US.

Konami confirmed at gamescom that the Raiden-centric action title will arrive on February 19 in the US and Europe, and February 21 for Japan.

Hideo Kojima tweeted an image of the Japanese release date to fans, and Konami Japan confirmed the dating via press release

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is coming to both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and is the product of Platinum Games, having been handed over and re-titled part way through development when KojiPro realised it had no clue what to do with its slicing sim.

The announcement was accompanied by a new trailer, which you can check out below; it repeated quite a lot of the E3 2012 material.

    the game look ugly, outdated textures, washed out colors. I think this game suffer from a lot of overhyping.

    @1 Lol it was never about graphics or even gameplay with the MGS series. But because this game has become ‘one of those’ games, then yeah I guess you could say that. Frankly, this game should’ve never been made. It’s like the people at Platinum Games have never played an MGS game. Pathetic.

    That’s weird, I can’t see the phrase MGS anywhere else on this page. Why do you think it’s a MGS title? (it’s not)

    I recall the original Mgs having quite a washed out two – three color palette (blue/black/white), and some ugly textures, same with the two subsequent ones, albeit they were more colorful.

    @2 Obviously, you don’t recall the last numbered title in the series where Raiden breakdanced with two Gekkos tied to his feet, throwing the Gekkos into other Gekkos, or the time where he held back Arsenal Gear while missing an arm, or the time he went toe-to-toe with a previously immortal character and won, or the time when he put a sword in his mouth and shot lightning out of his ass. It’s like you’ve never played MGS4. Pathetic.
