The 2011 Spike Video Game Awards are scheduled to screen in the states today, but it appears one of the biggest reveals has slipped early. Hideo Kojima, set to attend the event, has long promised to show a new trailer for the oft-delayed Metal Gear: Rising, as well as reveal what he has been calling 'the truth'. Fans of Metal Gear need not wait, as the trailer has leaked online hours ahead of schedule.
Outside of showing brand new story and gameplay details for Raiden's solo hack-and-slash adventure, the trailer vindicates a circulating rumour we posted earlier this year. Yes, that's right; Metal Gear: Rising is no longer being developed at Kojima Productions. Instead, Kojima Productions is producing the title and offering support, meanwhile Platinum Games, famed for Vanquish and Bayonetta, will be helming development.
Strange and exciting news indeed. Look forward to hearing more about the title soon.
