Last month, the internet was in an uproar about a supposed sequel to Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, after a '2', which was printed in the same font as the game's logo, was spotted in a Japanese PlayStation montage.

As it turns out, the mysterious number was actually referring to the PS3 title's second anniversary. The celebrations don't end there, however, as developer Platinum Games has released a brilliant stop animation video for the occasion. Featuring a figurine of Raiden doing what he does best, we reckon it's a fantastic way to remember the slash-'em-up.

That said, it is a bit weird that so much effort is going into remembering one game's birthday, isn't it? Do you think that there's some sort of conspiracy at work here? Augment your cyborg self in the comments section below.
