Metal Gear's Raiden cutting into PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale roster [Update: Video]

Raiden joins the cast of PlayStation AllStars

Raiden from the Metal Gear Solid series is officially in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. Lead game designer Seth Killian shows off Raiden in a video on Gamespot.

Raiden's strength lies in one-on-one attacks and air combos, and his level 3 super involves trapping all of the other players under boxes for easy pickings. Characters in All-Stars generally have about two dozen moves, but with his combo chains, Raiden has three or four dozen, Killian says.

We first heard rumblings about Raiden in All-Stars back in July, alongside a major character leak.

Update: We've added the official trailer showing off Raiden's slick moves, just up there.
