Metal Gear Rising Revengeance

The half-robot boy and his mechanical dog are coming to PC. I’m sorry if you think I mean Mega Man, but I’m taking about Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance’s Raiden.

Konami just announced it is unleashing developer Platinum Games’ Metal Gear spinoff on PC. Metal Gear Rising has Raiden, everyone’s favorite cyborg-ninja murder machine, slicing apart enemies in a character-action game similar to Bayonetta.

The publisher isn’t providing any release details but promises to reveal the date “soon.” It also claims the game will run at 60 frames-per-second on “most modern” computers.

This is Platinum’s first PC game; the studio previously released games for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, and DS. It is working on a sequel to Bayonetta 2 exclusively for Wii U.
