GameStop has listed a release date for the highly anticipated Metal Gear title, Metal Gear Solid RISING. According to the retail behemoth, Kojima's next mindscrew will launch in North America on June 3, 2011.
Of course, this is far from an official confirmation, but retail listings regularly turn out to have more fact than fiction in them, so it can at least be taken as a potential ballpark date.
Metal Gear Solid RISING is an action title starring the cybernetically enhanced Raiden from Metal Gear Solid 4. A heavy focus will be on swinging a katana around and slicing vans in half, which is pretty much all we really want from our videogames.
