The game footage shown showed a Ninja Gaiden type game with a heavy emphasis on combat and cutting your opponent, and anything else for that matter, into bits.
The tag "lightning bolt action" was used as Raiden ripped through enemies and objects slicing and dicing everything in sight. Choosing the angles to make before attacking he could slicing an enemy apart and rip out his spine with some style.
It looks great, amazing in fact, but how will MGS fans react?
Look out for the trailer online shortly!
