Platinum and Konami have released a new trailer for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance that shows off just what you'll be capable off when in control of Raiden.

The trailer was directed by Hideo Kojima himself, and features a good few minutes of actual gameplay from MGR. There's an abundance of ZanDatsu slicing, and even in just a few minutes, there are some nice hat tips to earlier games in the Metal Gear series.

A demo for Rising will be available for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 starting on January 22nd. That is if you didn't get the Zone of the Enders HD Collection, which included the demo when it came out in October. The game proper is due out for both consoles on Feb. 19th.
