You remember Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, right? Of course you do. It was the kind of balls-out extravganza of pure madness that you don't forget in a hurry.

If you do need a refresher, it was a 2013 hack and slash evisceration-a-thon brought to us by Platinum Games. These guys were also the creators of Vanquish and Bayonetta, so they certainly know their shit in this area. This little slice of Metal Gear starred Raiden of Sons of Liberty fame, a cyborg ninja taking on the private military company Desperado Enforcement like the lone robo-badass he is.

It was a hell of a series curveball, with its focus on pure actiontastic combat and thumping soundtrack-ery. But it did pretty damn well, so this kinda sorta possible sequel announcement shouldn't be much of a surprise.

That spangly digit up there is all we have to go on. It flashed briefly on screen during a clip shown at the Tapai Game Show, Kotaku reports. Irrefutable evidence, this is not, but that's a match for the Revengeance font if ever I've seen one. And as the report also states, series bossman Hideo Kojima did pay a visit to Platinum Games late last year. It's looking likely, whatever naysayer Geoff Keighley may Tweet.
