  • Who Would Win Wednesdays Raiden vs. Sephiroth

    Round 12

    Greetings loyal Push Square readers, and welcome to yet another Who Would Win Wednesdays. In a rather brutal twist of fate, this bumbling associate editor completely forgot about this week's contest, but luckily, we've had a brawl waiting in the wings for just such an occasion – and what a battle it is. Of course, we can't forget about...

  • News Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Is Having the Worst Day

    Feelin' like a freight train

    Ever had one of those days where everything seems to go wrong? Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance understands you. Y'see, the swashbuckling spin-off is being marketed as the perfect antidote to a particularly bad run of luck. But is it as effective as listening to Limp Bizkit on loop? You'll be able to find out for yourself...

  • News Konami Augmenting Metal Gear Rising with Exclusive DLC

    Virtual reality

    Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance may be steering Konami’s classic stealth series in a more action oriented direction, but it refuses to overlook the mainstays from the legendary franchise. As such, the publisher has confirmed that, like its predecessors, the title will boast a slew of VR missions – and many of these will be...

  • News Latest Metal Gear Rising Trailer Cuts Bosses Down to Size

    Sharper than a razor cut

    The antagonists of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance certainly seem to talk a good fight, but are they a match for Jack the Ripper in the ring? This brand new Japanese trailer focuses on four of the boss battles from the upcoming Platinum Games developed brawler, and it certainly lives up to its tagline, ‘Lightning Bolt...

  • News Metal Gear Rising Demo Serves Sweet Revengeance Next Week

    A cut above

    The long awaited demo for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will finally chop the PlayStation Network into tiny little pieces on 22nd January, developer Platinum Games has announced. It’s the same gameplay teaser that was originally included with copies of the Zone of the Enders HD Collection last year. You can read our thoughts on the...

  • News Metal Gear Rising's North American Box Art Is a Cut Above

    Chop, chop

    Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance’s international box art is great – but clearly publisher Konami was concerned that North American consumers wouldn't take to the close-up of protagonist Raiden’s robot face. As such, the company has produced a brand new image showing the aforementioned cyborg slicing an adversary in half. We suppose...

  • News Metal Gear Rising Readies Its Revengeance Next Month

    Holding out for a hero

    A super stylish demo for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will chop the PlayStation Network into pieces next month, publisher Konami has announced. The swashbuckling short is the same snippet that was included with copies of the Zone of the Enders HD Collection in November. The demo is already available in Japan, but is...

  • News Special Metal Gear Rising PS3 Adds a Splash of Blue

    Cut and take it

    We think it’s safe to say that custom console redesigns just don’t work as well with the PlayStation 3 Super Slim. Previous hardware bundles for Yakuza 3 and Ni No Kuni have prompted stunning new styles – making this Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance tie-in look bland by comparison. The console – due out on 21st February in...

  • News Check Out Metal Gear Rising's Slick Special Edition

    Style guide

    You’ll be able to purchase Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance in a variety of guises in Japan next year. Konami has announced that the title – which will launch as a PS3 exclusive in the region – will be available in vanilla, Premium Package, and Premium Package Konami Style editions overseas. The Premium Package will set you back...

  • Preview Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Goes for the Throat

    Come out swingin'

    There are three things we’ve come to realise while writing this preview for the latest Metal Gear outing from Platinum Games. First, we still can't type "Revengeance" into a text document without hating ourselves – it's not a word, it isn't cool, it sounds dumb. Second, we’ve learned that we’re okay with Konami releasing a...

  • News Metal Gear Rising's Special Edition Includes a Lamp

    Light up the dark

    Collector’s editions have become pretty predictable over the past couple of years – but the Metal Gear franchise refuses to comply. Konami has tossed aside usual conventions, announcing that the premium package for its upcoming Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will ship with a lamp based on Raiden’s sword from the main game...

  • News Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Carves Out a Slot on PSN

    Digital love

    Sony’s getting really aggressive with regards to digital releases. An increasing number of blockbuster titles are hitting the PlayStation Store at the same time as retail – including the likes of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Konami has confirmed that the swashbuckling spin-off will hit the PS3’s digital storefront in Japan on...

  • News Metal Gear Rising Demo Includes Free Copy of ZoE HD

    Couldn't resist

    We know it’s the oldest “joke” in the book, but we still remember when people purchased the original Zone of the Enders just to play the demo for Metal Gear Solid 2. As such, it’s funny that the visually re-mastered Zone of the Enders HD still can’t seem to escape from the shadow of Kojima Productions’ other more popular...

  • News Cut Your Way Through This Metal Gear Rising Trailer

    "Oh my car"

    Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance protagonist Raiden knows exactly what to do with a blade. In this brand new gameplay trailer, the cyborg ninja is shown chopping up an abandoned vehicle like a boiled vegetable. Our thoughts go out to the unfortunate owner of the carefully carved car. The Platinum Games developed slasher is due out early...

  • News Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance DLC Plans Teased

    War never changes

    Raiden might not be the only playable character in Platinum Games’ upcoming Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. In an interview with GameTrailers, producer Yuji Korekado explained that the developer is planning DLC for the slash-heavy spin-off that will “maybe let you play as a different character or experience different types of...

  • News Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Trailer Is a Cut Above

    Zan datsu

    We probably don’t need to convince you to watch this Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance trailer, but we’re going to anyway. Towards the end of the video, protagonist Raiden runs up a wall, leaps into the air, and cuts a helicopter into a dozen pieces. Yep. Revengeance still has a long way to go before it proves its worth to hardcore Metal...

  • News Metal Gear Rising Demo Included with Zone of the Enders HD

    Temptation

    Zone of the Enders is destined to live in Raiden’s pronounced shadow. Just like Metal Gear Solid 2 before it, Hideo Kojima has revealed that the upcoming Zone of the Enders HD Collection will include early access to the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo. If you don’t want to buy Zone of the Enders, the demo will be made available...

  • News Use the Konami Code for a Metal Gear Teaser

    You know how it goes

    We'd almost forgotten about Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, but we'll never forget the Konami Code. Combine the two and you have a small morsel of a pre-E3 teaser video. Head to the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance site, type out the Konami Code in the command box and press enter to unlock a video of the demo's title screen. We...

  • News New Metal Gear Rising Teaser Looks Through Raiden's Eye

    Hmm

    Konami’s back with another baffling Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance live action teaser. This time the footage plays out from the perspective of protagonist Raiden’s, erm, eye. We wished we could glean some meaningful information out of the video, but it just looks like 60 seconds of bad acting to us. Feel free to share some more meaningful...

  • News Metal Gear Rising Teaser Gets Cryptic

    Snake it right

    This live-action Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance trailer has it all: blood, intrigue and injections. The teaser appears to show a man in military uniform being questioned and subsequently killed. Pretty brutally, we hasten to add. It concludes with the date 30th April. While our attention has certainly been piqued, this is far from a...
