Metal Gear Solid: Rising premiered

Swordplay is the main feature

Hideo Kojima appeared on stage at Microsoft's E3 press conference to show off the first ever footage from Metal Gear Solid: Rising.

In Rising it appears that Raiden's sword will feature heavily in the game's dynamics.

Rising showed off some impressive footage of Raiden in combat with various enemies - literally slicing (every which way) through anything and everything.

The demo even shows Raiden meticulously slicing a melon with his sword.
