Only a month to go and KONAMI and Platinum Games have released a whole bunch of new screens to show off the beauty of the new MGS spin-off, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

For the uninitiated, the game will star Raiden of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty fame, it will be set sometime after Metal Gear Solid 4 and will feature a gameplay style that's essentially the polar opposite to what MGS fans are used to, trading stealth for extremely fast-paced samurai sword slashing action.

Whether this game will be a worthy title within the MGS mega-verse is yet to be seen, however what we can agree upon from these screenshots is that visually the game is going to be gorgeous.

Raiden will be cutting you into tiny little bits on February 22nd 2013 on PS3 / Xbox 360 and the demo will be hitting the PSN and Xbox Live networks next week!
