Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance has a robot dog? Why didn’t anybody tell me? Day. One. Purchase.

As well as some cinematic and plot stuff, there’s a fair bit of gameplay footage and some awful puns in this gamescom 2012 trailer. Doesn’t it remind you of the anime previews on every Madman VHS in the 1990’s? Only with any luck your mum can’t veto this one because you’re a good 12-22 years older than you were. Aces.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance’s release date was locked down during gamescom for February 19 in the US and Europe, and February 21 for Japan, on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Dave took a look at it, and even had a chat with Platinum Games.
