Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Gets A Release Date

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, the upcoming title from Konami and Platinum Games, has been given a release date. The game will hit stores on February 19th, 2013, admist a very crowded release season.

The game has come under some fire for looking to be almost anti-Metal Gear, as it has departed from its stealth roots, instead adopting a much more action-oriented approach to gameplay. It was outsourced to Platinum Games, developers of Bayonetta and Vanquish.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance stars series standout Raiden in all his cyborg ninja glory, slicing through enemies with his blade and leaving a path of destruction in his wake. But is it too different? Is this direction too much of a change for the franchise? Let us know what you think!
