    Key Features of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

    Here is a list of key features that will be available in Platinum Games’ Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance based on news and announcements made so far.

    Unlike previous titles in the Metal Gear series, Rising is strictly an action game, focusing on swordfighting and a sophisticated cutting system.

    Cutting System
    The game’s cutting system allows players to engage in third person melee combat, as well as precisely slash enemies and objects “at will” along a geometrical plane using a “free slicing” mode. Virtually any object in the game can be cut, including vehicles and enemies.

    Although Raiden’s main weapon will be his high-frequency blade, he will also have “sub-weapons”, Kimura revealed; gameplay footage has briefly shown Raiden wielding a dagger in his left hand.

    A key gameplay feature initially announced for game was titled zan-datsu, meaning “cut and take, and would have involved “cutting” through enemies and “taking” parts, energy, ammunition, items, and information from dismembered cyborgs and robots.

    Moral Choices
    The game will encourage players to progress through levels without killing, noting that there is a moral difference between attacking cyborgs or robots and attacking human beings.

    See the cyborg ninja in action in this trailer from the Spike Video Game Awards of 2011!

    • Ex_shadi79

       what we could expect from kojima ? ………….its afntastic game no doubt, but we hope not to wait too long as we did before

    • It’s probably not on Wii because the engine may be aimed at HD consoles. Platinum Games’ previous games were all on PS3 & Xbox 360 too.

    • the designs of the 80s were far better than today.
