Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance slices and dices its way into stores

After a flurry of videos and screenshots, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance has hit store shelves. The Kojima Productions and Platinum Games co-production features the former’s flair for storytelling and the latter’s love of crazy action in a new tale featuring everyone’s favorite white-haired ninja, Raiden. Well, maybe “favorite” is a strong word. More like the “Where did Solid Snake go? Who is this guy?!” game-usurping white-haired ninja. But this is the new-and-improved Raiden, the one from Metal Gear Solid 4, kitted out with cyborg limbs and a massive sword. It’s that same sword that will be used to dismember innumerable cyborgs and take down the notorious PMC Desperado Enforcement.
