New Metal Gear Solid Rising screens

Konami has unsheathed a fresh bundle of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance screenshots for you to gawk at.

Currently in development at Platinum Games, Metal Gear Rising is an action-oriented take on Konami’s celebrated stealth-action franchise, and features Raiden as the main protagonist.

The game takes place four years after the events of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and sees the nimble ninja slicing up mechs and soldiers while attempting to aid an unnamed African country that is in the process of recovering from civil war.
