Published February 14, 2013 by |

Just in case you were not aware, the latest Metal Gear game is out soon, and Konami want you to know about it, having decided to unleash some additional advertising on select walls across the UK, featuring badass ninja Raiden.

Building sized murals of Metal Gear Rising: Revengence star Raiden are currently being created, courtesy of professional art installation firm ‘End of the Line‘.

Brian Ayers, of Konami UK stated:

“With a game of the stature of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, it is fitting to have its central hero looming over key cities via these stunning works of art.”

“Yoji Shinkawa’s art is instantly recognisable, and Raiden’s presence in London, Leeds and Liverpool will have all the impact of the new game. EndoftheLine has secured some stunning vantage points for the art, and we are extremely proud to be working with such talented guys in the run up to the launch of one of 2013’s most anticipated video games.”
