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.
