With a bit of help from TransGaming, Konami will be bringing their popular action game Metal Gear Rising: Revengence to the Mac Platform. This will be the first release of Metal Gear Solid series on the Mac and marks the first release from TransGaming since announcing that they would begin porting PC content and games to other platforms, including iOS and SteamOS.
In Metal Gear Rising, players take on the role of Raiden, a cybernetic ninja who first appeared in Metal Gear Solid 2, as he hacks and slashes his way through an army of robots and soldiers that stand between him and his mission objective.
“METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE is the perfect marquee title to initiate our company publishing strategy, while also showcasing our unparalleled technology,” said Vikas Gupta, CEO & President at TransGaming. “The Metal Gear series is a legendary game franchise and we are privileged to be bringing the game to Mac. TransGaming’s proprietary enablement technology ensures Mac gameplay quality is on par with current console versions.”
“METAL GEAR has been a massive global success on myriad platforms and bringing the series to Mac was long overdue,“ said Yuji Korekado, a Producer from Konami. “METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE was a turning point in the series and is the ideal introduction for new Mac players.”
