Information concerning Metal Gear Rising has been released from Gamescom and Hideo Kojima himself. We've got the scoop; do you?
Metal Gear Rising Revengeance
It's been a long time since the release of Kojima's exceptionally well-received Metal Gear Solid 4. Shortly after the game hit store shelves, Hideo Kojima announced his next upcoming title: Metal Gear Rising. After several years of waiting, it would appear we finally have a release date.

According to Gamescom press releases, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will launch on February 19 in North America, February 21 in Europe, and February 22 in the UK (apparently the UK isn't in Europe, but we'll let this slide).

Metal Gear Rising will be a spin-off from the Metal Gear Solid series featuring ninja cyborg Raiden as the main protagonist. Apparently it will take place a few years after the events of Metal Gear Solid 4, in which cyborgs are beginning to take an increasingly large role in daily human life.

Rising will feature a faster, more action-packed style of game play as opposed to the traditionally stealth-oriented Metal Gear Solid series. This is one reason Kojima decided to drop the "Solid" from Rising's title.

Also released at Gamescom was an official trailer, and it has us excited.

What do you think? Will Rising live up to the massive standards set by Metal Gear Solid 4?

I think there will be a lot of classic Solid fans that won't be happy about this...regardless, it looks like a fun game for me, and I'll look into it.
