From Hideo Kojima's Twitter today comes word that Kojima Productions will be releasing footage from Metal Gear Rising's E3 demo ahead of E3.
You may recall that Kojima shared an image of the demo's title screen last week. Apparently, Kojima found this image of Raiden so cool that he asked that the footage be released in advance and was able to get permission to do so.
For details, Kojima suggested asking producer Yuji Korekado (@Korekado_Yuji).
Kojima actually referred to the Raiden shown in the title screen as "Black/Dark Raiden." In a later Tweet, he wrote, "I can't say much beyond this, but why he's 'Black/Dark Raiden' is a secret."
Kojima also shared this suspicious image from his checks of the Rising demo:
