Some slashing artwork and renders.
Platnium games have released a bunch of new character renders for it’s upcoming hack-n-slash Metal Gear Rising Revengeance. Obviously they are not in real time and just a representation of what characters will look like in the final retail game. Along with the renders, Konami and Platinum Games have also released character profiles which you can check below the post.
Please note that the following is an excerpt from the press release:
Raiden: After being turned into a cyborg by the Patriots, Raiden devoted himself to fighting them. He had a child with Rosemary, a woman he met during the S3 Plan, so to provide for his family after the defeat of the Patriots, he joined a private military security company (PMSC) called “Maverick Security Consulting.” He considers his PMSC activities to be for the greater good.
Samuel Rodrigues: A mysterious cyborg employed by the PMC known as “Desperado Enforcement.” He is a master swordsman who wields a high-frequency blade similar to Raiden’s, fighting with a Brazilian technique influenced by the Japanese “New Shadow School” of swordsmanship. When he faces Raiden in battle, he sees through his technique, commenting that Raiden was “denying his weapon of its purpose.”
LQ-84i: A robot with a learning optical neuro-AI and a prototype verbal interface. He appears in front of Raiden, having been ordered by Desperado to kill him. He talks with Raiden, insisting that he is sentient and does not want to fight him, but will have his consciousness erased if he goes against his orders. He is an important character who holds the key to the game’s story.
Mistral: A female cyborg working for Desperado Enforcement. Like Sundowner, she is also a member of the “Winds of Destruction.” Her name comes from the dry north wind that blows over the Alps to the Mediterranean. Her weapon “Etranger” is flexible like a whip, but can be hardened and used like a halberd.
Monsoon: “Works for Desperado Enforcement. Along with Sundowner and Mistral, he is one of the three cyborgs collectively known as the “”Winds of Destruction.”” His codename refers to seasonal winds that bring rain — particularly in Southeast Asia. He is a master at wielding his magnetic sai, known as “”Dystopia,”” and is able to break his own body apart.”
The game is due for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Februrary 2013. We think it is going to be one of the wild cards of 2013. We recently previewed the game and our impressions were generally positive.
