Metal Gear Rising Revengeance Adopts Dog and Release Date

Metal Gear Rising

Early this morning, Konami premiered a trailer for the latest title in the Metal Gear saga. Metal Gear Rising Revengeance finaily has a concrete release date after years of lingering in devolpment limbo, with the previously mentioned 2013 release date now seeing Raiden slicing into stores February 19.

In a mostly repurposed trailer from E3, Konami showed the more emotional side of the upcoming action extravaganza by showing the bond between a cyborg and his mechanical mutt.

Game star Raiden can add robot dog whisperer to his already impressive list of qualifications as the new trailer sees him subduing the aggressive chainsaw tailed attacker before, as is Sci-Fi tradition, reprogramming and renaming it to the slightly more friendly K-9000. The dog looks to be a companion to Raiden’s campaign of slicing and dicing.

Skip to about 3:20 to see the brand new footage, or catch up with the whole thing if you missed at E3
