[Video Spotlight] Jack the Ripper

“Metal Gear Solid” brings to mind a lot of things, like cardboard boxes, genetically engineered super soldier mercenaries, and the trials and tribulations of a cyborg assassin and his long-suffering girlfriend. Foregoing the franchise’s iconic stealth gameplay for a quicker paced, combat-oriented hack-and-slash style, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance has raised concerns in the Metal Gear fanbase for straying too far off-base to be a “real” Metal Gear title. For now, it seems that, at the very least, its complex and much-loved sci-fi military mythos remains intact.

Featuring awkwardly stilted dialogue, cyberpunk style, and some excellent cinematography, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance‘s new trailer, titled “Jack the Ripper,” showcases Raiden’s ninja-like finesse and expertise with a sword as he slices and dices his way through the streets of a city populated solely by cops who only speak in one-liners and car chases. Gone is the pensive and deceptively sensitive secret protagonist of Sons of Liberty – the Raiden who has taken his place is as bloodthirsty as the trailer’s namesake, if he was also part Saiyan.┬áThe trailer ends by instructing you to “Cut What You Will,” and I honestly just might when the demo comes out on January 22.
