Giant Metal Gear Rising murals decorate three UK cities

7 Feb

Tired of all these Metal Gear Rising trailers? Yep, the new title from Platinum Games looks awesome and all, but Konami felt that its new masterpiece (we hope it will be, because Platinum guys are cool and talented) deserve some more hype…

That’s why EndOfTheLine, a company based in East London focused on producing huge murals and cutting edge installations, has been contacted by the Japanese software house to perform some graffiti about Raiden in three UK cities.

You can find these pieces of art in Ropewalks Square in Liverpool (where the above pics were taken), Sclater Street in London’s Shoreditch and Aire Street in Leeds. The artworks aren’t quite finished yet, but by tomorrow the should be.

EndOfTheLine guys are quite famous for this kind of campaigns, indeed they used to work within the video games industry quite a lot. Check their portfolio to see some of their best work to date.

This is the kind of advertisement we like!

**UPDATE (12 Feb 2013)**

Here’s the one in Leeds!

**UPDATE (19 Feb 2013)**
