Metal Gear Rising boss trailer isn’t for the fainthearted

Friday, 18th January 2013 12:36 GMT By Nick Akerman

Konami has ramped up its Metal Gear Solid: Revengeance promotion across the last couple of weeks. Keeping with recent tradition, the publisher has released a trailer focusing on boss battles.

It must be said: these encounters look absolutely mental. Following on from concept art released last week, Raiden’s ultimate foes are now shown in action. Coming up against multi-armed Mistral, barely-armed Monsoon, the muscley-armed Sundowner, and the very leggy Samuel, it’s clear to see this game isn’t for those who possess slow reactions.

Check out the video below:

A console demo will be available from January 22nd. If you haven’t read it yet, head on over here to scope out Brenna’s thoughts on Platinum Games’ production.

    Platinum sure knows how to make awesome gameplay. After seeing this I hope Capcom could team up with them to make the genuine successor to DMC 4 on the next gen platforms.

    Awesome! Though the 3rd boss wasn’t quite as impressive as the first 2 were.

    Haven’t followed this thoroughly, but by the looks of it, everything is very spectacular.

    @2: Yikes.

    I gotta say, the game looks pretty much meh.

    @6: What’s there to spoil? The writing is so bad, it doesn’t seem to matter at all.

    Wow, judging by the comments so far this game is pretty polarizing.

    I’m just happy there’s a developer left on the planet that understands the importance of trailers with ACTUAL GAMEPLAY in them.

    Also why does Monsoon’s theme sound like Sum 41 wtf
