Now, it's back. Developer Platinum Games today confirmed that yes, lucky PCnauts will get to cut cyborgs into tiny pieces with a cybersword.

Hideo Kojima explains Phantom Pain fake-out, why David Hayter isn't in Metal Gear Solid 5

The campaign for Metal Gear Solid 5 kicked off during last year, when a trailer debuted for "The Phantom Pain." It was an elaborate riddle that the Internet solved in roughly an hour, but creator Hideo Kojima says that was part of the point. He wanted fans engaged in this announcement.

Kojima wanted Grey Fox to star in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

Stabby spin-off Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance could have starred a very different cyborg ninja, Hideo Kojima has said: series veteran Gray Fox. The Metal Gear creator has said he fancied seeing the former FOXHOUND member with those fabulous new shiny metal buttocks, but as he was going more hands-off with Revengeance he let the team go with their pick of Raiden.

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.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo coming January

Some games might let you seek vengeance, and others might let you dole out revenge, but only one lets you perform a conflated nonsense word that includes both distinct but extremely similar concepts.

How cyborgs helped Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance avoid censorship

How cyborgs helped Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance avoid censorship

Thanks to its unique cutting mechanic, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance certainly leaves a lasting impression. By slicing enemies into pieces, Platinum Games' upcoming action game is one of the most violent games ever created. Certainly, that's cause for concern, especially in countries like Japan where anti-violence censorship is more commonplace.

Oddly, one way of circumventing strict restrictions on gore is to avoid violence on humans. By having players fight cyborgs exclusively, the team has figured a way to make a violent game that won't be banned in Japan.

Metal Gear Rising Revengeance preview: a Solid legacy

Metal Gear Rising Revengeance preview: a Solid legacy

When Platinum Games was attached to Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, I had little doubt it could be a potentially great action game. But, I didn't think it could be a real Metal Gear game, especially as its focus was taken away from stealth. After playing the first few hours of the game, I realized I was wrong. The action in Revengeance not only stands up to Platinum's other hits, but the game carries on the stealth legacy of its Solid predecessors.
