When Metal Gear Solid creator and mastermind Hideo Kojima took the stage last night to introduce the newly renamed Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, he seemed nervous. The message was clear, though: Revengeance is going to be a lot different from other Metal Gear titles. That much is clear simply from watching the above trailer.

We haven't been Raiden's biggest fans since his surprise takeover of Metal Gear Solid 2, but his appearances in MGS4 were more appealing. Regardless, the slow motion torso-dicing that's going on all over this trailer is more than enough to get us excited for this wild card of a game. It could really go either way—what's your prediction? Fun change of pace for the series or a waste of time and resources?
