Just a quick warning: you won't see any cyborg ninja guys slicing robots in twain in this Metal Gear Rising video. This is the other part of Metal Gear – the part in which shadowy "authority" types deliver long speeches you won't understand.

It looks like Konami is setting up some kind of political intrigue backstory for Revengeance, with political machinations going on behind all the fighting and an entity called "Desperado" causing trouble. We're glad to see that not everything has changed in the transition to a new sub-series and a new developer.
