Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance trailers highlight Raiden's new suit, cyborg abilities and battle locations

A trio of trailers released today for Platinum Games' Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance highlight various game elements, including a closer look at Raiden's new cyborg body and how to hack enemies to ribbons in Blade Mode.

The trailer above features several locations players will visit in Revengeance, including gloomy cities, shorelines, isolated industrial compounds and Japanese shrines showered in cherry blossom petals. The second trailer below demonstrates Raiden's Zandatsu technique, or "the stab and grab," as well as Blade Mode, which lets players determine opponent's weak spots in order to make the choicest cuts.

The third trailer focuses on the bells and whistles of Raiden's new digs, and explains how to replenish energy by taking down enemies and how to cover more ground more quickly using the Ninja Run ability.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America on Feb. 19 and Europe on Feb. 22.
