With Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance looming at the horizon, Konami is cranking out a number of gameplay trailers to get people psyched up about the game. The three that have been released just now show us a number of impressive features from the game. The first is labeled ‘Locations’ and is just that, the trailer shows off the various locations and areas in the game, the second one is more interesting, it shows us a new kind of kill method in which you activate blade mode and need to slice the enemy in just the right way in order to expose their energy cells. Raiden can grab this mid-slice to restore some of his own energy.
The final trailer tells us a bit about the special abilities Raiden’s fancy ninja suit gives him, including the Ninja Run ability, in which he can dodge around obstacles and slice enemies faster, the AR visor which gives the player greater awareness of his surroundings by letting Raiden see through walls and marking enemies.
