The game will also be set nine years after Metal Gear Solid 4 and according to Kojima Studios writer Etsu Tamari, “he is still suffering from the wounds of the civil war he fought. He’s become a hero with a dark past, one constantly haunted by this guilt.”

The game will focus on directional slashing and according to its director, Kenji Sato, players will have access to a variety of different weapons along with the ability to slash certain background objects and use them as makeshift weapons as well. Air combos and Ninja Dash will be used as a means to traverse the game’s world and based on the trailer, well it’s safe to say that Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be pretty gory!
