Noted hero and food picture taker Hideo Kojima took to Twitter to mention that that game will be released on February 19th in North America, the 21st in Europe, and the 22nd int he UK. The game has been in the works for quite awhile by Platinum Games (Bayonetta) and features hack-and-slash gameplay instead of the traditional playstyle Metal Gear is so well known for. You can catch a trailer here.
Well, Hideo Kojima’s secret was let out of the bag before the Spike TV VGA: Metal Gear Solid Rising is to be developed by Platinum Games (the Japanese developer responsible for Bayonetta) and not Kojima Productions nor Konami. The project, which has already seen two different lead producers (and not Kojima himself), may also get a new subtitle: Revengence (which may or may not have something to do with revenge).
Whether or not it will be Metal Gear Solid Rising: Revengence or It will be called Metal Gear Rising: Revengence, and we can all assume with some certainty that revengence will be had.
Kojima previously assured fans that it would be a slightly faster paced game than the MGS series known for its “Tactical Espionage Action”, but by the looks of the new trailer (not yet online), things are set to speed up quite a bit.
Maybe you forgot about this trailer from 2010, but noted eccentric game producer Hideo Kojima is set to announce some stuff about Metal Gear Solid: Rising tomorrow at the Spike TV Video Game Awards. While the VGA is so absurd and so embarassing that it makes me wish Spike TV didn’t exist and that I didn’t play video games, it should be worth checking out. I mean, it’s Kojima. What could go wrong?
Raiden gets a bum wrap pretty often, but I liked him in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots well enough. And while he is no Solid Snake, playing him in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty was actually pretty fun, if you ask me. You instead got to see the “living legend” Solid Snake himself in action. And Raiden wasn’t as awful a character as he was made out to be. Granted, he was a bit of a sissy and I often worried about being outside for too long in case he got skin cancer really easily on account of being an albino, but he had a cool backstory and, judging from his state of being in MGS4, had a cool break between games 2 and 4.
