Konami unveils a brand-new trailer for its premier PS2 game at ECTS - and we've got it.

Much like its booth at E3, Konami's booth at ECTS centers around a giant television screen on which it constantly runs video previews of its upcoming games. It was on this screen that Konami first unveiled its new Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty trailer. And while the new footage certainly wasn't as stunning as the initial footage first seen at E3, the new trailer certainly does contain some incredible footage.

In the trailer, Snake bungee-jumps from a bridge and onto the tanker from the original trailer while using the stealth suit. He then sneaks past guards, crawls through ventilator shafts, and does pretty much everything you would expect from the world's sneakiest Fox Hound.

In one impressive scene, Snake runs into some guards in a reading room filled with magazine racks. He immediately starts firing at them, and happens to take out a few racks while doing so. The racks disintegrate and splinter, and the paper magazines burst and scatter about. The effect is similar to that in Capcom's Crisis Zone, where bullets cause dynamic damage to the background - except it looks considerably better in Metal Gear Solid 2.

The trailer was only a few minutes long, but was an excellent follow-up to the original trailer released by Konami earlier this year. The stunning new gameplay footage, cinematic camera angles, and awesome sound all further suggest that Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty is going to be an amazing game. We were able to film the whole trailer, and while the screen quality doesn't show off the exact detail present on the large screen, it'll certainly give you a good impression of what to expect from Snake's new adventure.
