posted on by Egan Loo
Konami offered a sneak peak of the boss battles against the Desperado Enforcement PMC's Samuel Rodrigues and the "Winds of Destruction" cyborgs in its Metal Gear Rising Revengeance game on Friday. In the video, the cyborg ninja Raiden (played by Kenyuu Horiuchi) faces off against the female cyborg Mistral (Romi Park), the recombinable cyborg Monsoon (Masashi Ebara), the dual "Blood Rust" machete-wielding Sundowner (Ken Nishida), and finallly, Samuel (Hiroaki Hirata) himself.
The game's official website outlines the story:
Raiden is contracted for VIP protection, military training and other duties by PMSCs (Private Military and Security Companies) in a developing country piecing itself back together after a bloody civil war. Little does he know that the stage is set for a clash with an enigmatic force of countless cyborgs.
Reborn at the hands of Platinum Games, Metal Gear Rising Revengeance pits cyborg against cyborg in battle that blazes past every human limit!
Kojima Productions (the company overseen by Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima) is responsible for the scenario and setting supervision of the game, while Platinum Games (Bayonetta) is handling its development.
