Hideo Kojima and company bared a TGS 2012 trailer for the spin-off game Metal Gear Rising Revengeance as posted here in the MediaFreaks 3D Animation Studio Blog. This game will not feature Solid Snake but rather it will focus on the cyborg ninja Raiden, four years after the events of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriot. As the game draws closer on its February 19 (North America) and February 21 (Japan) release, Kojima Productions have revealed a new trailer detailing the Jack the Ripper gameplay.
This game was originally pegged as Metal Gear Solid: Rising and was supposed to be an interquel between MGS 2 and MGS 4. However a game based on swordplay seemd lacking for Kojima and his crew and the project was scrapped. It wasn’t until Platinum Games joined the team that a fresh dose of creativity was injected in the project.
