We got the privilege yesterday to attend Konami's in-house-hosted press conference and needless to say it was....different. With men in cowboy hats to people who at least reminded me of Ando from the recently cancelled NBC series Heroes, we were certainly entertained in at least some sense of the word.
There were tons of interesting presentations throughout the press conference but the one that caught my eye and interest was Metal Gear Solid: Rising. Although we already saw the trailer for the game earlier in the week along with gameplay, Konami decided to take us even deeper into the game mechanics and characters of MGS:Rising, peaking my interest.
One of the first things they talked about was the stealth system and how it's not exactly what we have encountered in the past. Rather than relying on hiding in the shadows and using boxes as hiding places, Raiden uses his acrobatic abilities, speed and agility to go unseen (so no need to worry about back problems). With the cyborg suit he has on, it would not surprise me if it has some sort of cloaking ability that might be on a timer of some sort.
