The odd weapons of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

In addition to a new trailer showcasing a host of unmanned enemies, Platinum Games also released this video that reveals a few of the unique weapons you’ll be able to use to cut them down in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

If you haven’t been keeping up with the ongoing Metal Gear saga, you should know that Revengeance isn’t your typical Metal Gear Solid game. Rather than keeping with the stealthy style of Solid Snake, this game lets you take control of the cyborg ninja Raiden, so it’s got more of a hack-and-slash style. Finally, after watching Raiden whoop ass in all those MGS4 cutscenes, you finally get to wield that high-frequency katana – but that’s not all you have at your disposal. We won’t go into too much detail here, but the most notable additions to your arsenal include a giant pair of scissors, and a severed arm you use like a bo staff. 

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance hits stores on February 19th, so be sure to check back for more trailers in the weeks to come.
