January 4, 2016 - Written By Alexander Maxham

The NVIDIA SHIELD TV isn’t your ordinary TV set-top box. It’s a bit of a hybrid between a gaming console and a set-top box, and it runs Android TV. Which is perhaps its best asset. NVIDIA already has a slew of games that have been optimized for the SHIELD TV as well as the SHIELD Portable and SHIELD Tablets. And now we can add another game to that list on January 7th. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is headed to the SHIELD TV on Thursday. However, we were able to get some time with the game on the SHIELD TV ahead of the availability later this week.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is developed by Kojima Productions and PlatinumGames. The game brings pure action as well as great story-telling to the big screen, thanks to the SHIELD TV. The story surrounds Raiden, who is a child soldier that transformed into part cyborg and part human ninja who then uses high frequency katana blade to cut through anything and everything that gets in his way.

This is one of those games that you will definitely want to have the SHIELD Controller handy for, to take get the full experience of gaming on the SHIELD TV.
