Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance -New Details Surface


Today, Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., takes the wraps off one of the most anticipated games of the year: METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE.

Announced over two years ago, KONAMI premiered a new trailer for METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE at the prestigious Video Game Awards on December 10th, and is now ready to outline the direction the action title is taking. METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE is a stunning action title produced by Kojima Productions and developed by Platinum Games. Kojima Productions has created the story for the game, managed the cutscenes and voice-over sessions, and Metal Gear Solid artist Yoji Shinkawa has created the character designs. Platinum Games will focus on the game design and programming elements under the supervision of Kojima Productions. A special documentary piece will debut on this Tuesday, 5:00PM (PST) that will reveal more on the development collaboration details between Kojima Productions and Platinum Games.

Hideo Kojima, Head of Kojima Productions and creator of the Metal Gear series, personally chose Platinum Games to create the new title, and Metal Gear Solid veteran Yuji Korekado has been appointed to oversee the project for Kojima productions and will work closely with Platinum’s Atsushi Inaba. Hideo Kojima will act as Executive Producer. These appointments follow the decision to reposition METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE as a more action-orientated title than initially planned, with Platinum Games creating a game where the player has total control of the main character – the cybernetically-enhanced Raiden from METAL GEAR SOLID 4: Guns of the Patriots – and a total freedom of how users control him. As such, the game title has been subtly rebranded to reflect the more action-based content than in previous Metal Gear Solid titles.

As seen in the trailer, the result is a breath-taking action title wherein the player guides Raiden through a series of beautifully-realized stages. Raiden is armed with a High Frequency katana blade which he uses to cut through anything that stands in his way. The three-minute trailer shows Raiden’s incredible level of power and control as he cuts through enemies and various obstacles using high-speed combination attacks, and using free-running skills to bypass groups of adversaries to give him a strategic advantage and catch them off-guard. As the game progresses, Raiden’s physical prowess is increasingly called upon and tested, with huge enemies appearing that require specific tactics to disable.

    This game seems like it will be cool.But it also seems like they have completly changed the way metal gear games should be.Sneaking is so awsome for metal gear games in the past.So if there isnt any sneaking in this one I cant see it being as awsome as ones where you need to sneak at some point.Althou Im sure it still will be sick because of the main creator. Just not as incredibly amazingly awsome compared to previous metal gear consol games.1 2 3 and 4 easily the best games ever made for systems in the past those titles are my favorite games.Hideo Kojima is an awsome developer clearly from the past games I hope he will make this one as cool as the other metal gear games.

      well i think metal gear rising will be really good although raiden is one of my favorite characters. i think it is a good idea to make a seires apart from metal gear solid for raiden cuz raiden was still young in the metal gear solid series soo they should put out his life like they did with snake.

       Wrong. Metal Gear Solid is about sneaking. Metal Gear Rising is obviously not.

        I geuss, but Id rather metal gear be with “sneaking” instead of “rising”.

  • Tyler77t

     Ya Ive never thout of it like that its a huge reason why the maker of these metal gear games made it like reality as far as a video game thats awsome goes.I hope so bad in the future we see a stealth game again thou.The previous games are just sooooo awsome Ive played throu metal gear 3 realistically 40 times.The vedios in that game are allways sick amazingly sick.Ive seen videos for whats going to be the new metal gear with raiden and wow holy frakin wow but I hope they make a sneaking game in the futer again at least once.
