Baltimore hosted the 20th Otakon convention last weekend, full of pop culture celebration and cosplayers. One particular group of four people—Pro Voltage—did a hell of a job showing off their Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance cosplay, dressing up as Raiden, Monsoon, Mistral and—in this case, transforming to—Bladewolf.
If you've been paying attention to Raiden's bodysuits (I, apparently, have not), you might notice that Raiden has a different outfit in Metal Gear Rising.
Here's a photo of Raiden from the Metal Gear Rising demo that will appear at this year's Tokyo Game Show. The image was snapped off a TV, but damn, it looks good. And check out those skies.
Japanese manga artist Hiro Mashima (Rave, Fairy Tail) was blown away by Raiden at the recent Metal Gear Solid event. So, he decided to do his take on the character—see above!
After initially being announced back in 2009 as Metal Gear Solid: Rising, and rebranded in 2011 after facing cancellation, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance looks like it's "gearing" up for its finishing lap before release with some new info (pardon the pun).
Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima posted this drawing of Metal Gear Solid character Raiden. It's not clear if this is just a drawing or whether it's in relation to the upcoming title Metal Gear Solid: Rising, which stars Raiden.
In the latest episode of director Kevin Tancharoen's live-action Mortal Kombat: Legacy web series, the Thunder God Raiden choose a particularly inconvenient place to make his first appearance in the realm of mortals.
There's gonna be big trouble in Little China when Raiden tosses his wok-shaped hat into the Mortal Kombat tournament.

The guild of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood has expanded with a surprising new member, one that you might not want spoiled before the game arrives later this month. Ah, who are we kidding? You're going to want to know this.
Hideo Kojima, best known for making Metal Gear Solid games, is in France for the Japan Expo. He is posing with cosplayers, and pointing a plastic gun at one guy's face.
Mega 64 stealths their way through the streets of San Francisco, Metal Gear Solid style, until the characters they are portraying finally meet their maker.

In Japan, Santa Claus does not have a beard — just a mustache, and an eyepatch. Oh yes; your dreams are almost true. This Christmas, MGS4 and LittleBigPlanet become one.
Got a call on Friday night. From my mate Dave. "Yo. I'm house-sitting a friend's place. You should come over. Play some Raiden. On the Jaguar". Raiden? Jaguar? Sure, why not. I drive over, open the door, and see this laid out before me. Like some kind of dusty, composite-cabled last supper. Needless to say, my Friday…
Normally, we'd slave over a snappy headline to lure you in. Something with "boobs" or "first this or that" or "Haruhi" in the title. But this is Metal Gear Solid 4 cosplay.
