Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is an upcoming console action game developed by Platinum Games and published by Konami. It features Raiden as the playable protagonist and is set four years after Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. This title has less stealth elements than previous Metal Gear games, but introduces a new gameplay mechanic called “Blade Mode” instead. This freeform cutting mode slows down time and allows Raiden to make aimed sword strikes, cleaving enemies into pieces.
