Originally planned for last night's Spike TV VGAs, the trailer was leaked ahead of time, confirming it was developed by Bayonetta and Vanquish studio Platinum Games.
The video shows that the action title has become a fast-paced hack-and-slash game, with Raiden taking on a Metal Gear Ray single-handed, slicing off enemy limbs and fighting an unknown enemy on top of a speeding train.
It concludes by revealing potential subtitle 'Revengeance' and hints of his 'Jack the Ripper' past, which was referred to in Metal Gear Solid 2.
Series creator Hideo Kojima seemingly confirmed Metal Gear Solid 5 last month, before backtracking to say that the project was not in development but would happen at some point.
Metal Gear Solid Rising is expected to be released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2012.
