PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale adds Raiden

Metal Gear Rising star slices and dices.

Sony and SuperBot Entertainment have confirmed Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance‘s Raiden for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

A close-ranged fighter capable of building “tremendous amounts of AP” with “various combos and juggles,” Raiden uses a special chain-attack system, which allows him to branch off into different combos depending on the string of attacks input by the player. His reverse stabs and parries allow him to defend from attackers attempting to break his combo. Raiden’s super attacks require that players make use of the right joystick to perform “lethal slices” and “swiftly dispatch adversaries.”

Watch a trailer for Raiden below. View a set of screenshots at the gallery.
