Keeping with our ongoing tradition of highlighting kick-ass box-art, check out new-kid Raiden gracing the cover of Metal Gear Solid: Rising. You know, the Metal Gear Solid without the actual Solid part.
What’s not to love? It’s got guns, a katana, and is that some sort of biomechanical spine he’s holding? I really do need to actually get around to playing Metal Gear Solid 4. No one told me it had skeletons made out of some sort of voodoo metal.
There is something that we’re not too sure about. What’s going on with Raiden’s hair? I know those Japanese kids are big into expressing themselves by preening their locks into incredible gravity-defying shapes, but that hairstyle’s bordering on Blanka of Street Fighter II fame, mate. Seriously. You wouldn’t even be able to walk around Harajuku with that do.
