mgr 500x306 Unmanned Gears, Boss weapons, Augment mode featured in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance trailers

It is two weeks to the release of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and Konami & its partners have released more trailers introducing the various modes, enemies and weaponry. 

To further prove the point that there are elements of stealth within Revengeance, Konami released a trailer featuring Augment Mode, one of the abilities Raiden will be able to use. See your enemies through walls and objects, allowing you to use various strategies and tactics. In previous Metal Gear games, placing Playboy magazines will distract humanoid cyborgs; this time, holographic variants come to play. Talk about moving with the times indeed.

Swords and katanas aren’t the only weapons Raiden can use. Like the weapons the bosses used? Raiden can use it too, but it is unknown as to how to obtain these weapons. I wonder if Jetstream Sam’s blade is usable, enabling Raiden to dual-wield the HF blades.

Konami also released trailers introducing the different grunt variants; the normal foot soldiers and the Unmanned Gears. There’s a Heavy Soldier wielding a hammer bigger than Raiden’s body, but at the hands of a skilled player, the hammer can be deflected easily.  

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will release for the PS3 and Xbox360 on 19 and 21 February 2013 for the North America and Japan region (PS3 only) respectively.
