Konami has released a gameplay movie for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, the new action title produced by Kojima Productions, which gives us a detailed look at the new “Blade Mode” protagonist Raiden uses to slow time and hack.

In Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance players assume control of cyborg ninja Raiden, the katana-wielding ally of series mainstay Solid Snake. Unlike previous titles in the Metal Gear series, Revengeance is strictly an action game, focusing on swordfighting and a sophisticated cutting system.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is planned for a 2013 release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms.
