Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance trailer brings bosses

Zany bosses are a hallmark of the Metal Gear series, so while Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance may spin-off in a wildly different, stabby direction, rest assured that you'll still get to duff up some right proper weirdos. A new Japanese trailer from publisher Konami shows off a selection of the bosses Raiden will be cutting up, including a very handy lady, a pre-sliced chap, and some big fella wot hit things wiv swords.

In addition, developer Platinum Games, of Bayonetta and Vanquish fame, shared armfuls of concept art for Mistral in a recent blog post, showing the evolution of her design.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance comes to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on February 19. The demo will be opened up to all and sundry next week, after months as exclusive bonus in the Zone of the Enders HD Collection.
