Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Rises From the Ashes
Written By
View author's profile

Turns out that the VGA pre-show leak was right on the money. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is the new name for Metal Gear Solid: Rising, and it's now been placed into the safe hands of Vanquish and Bayonetta developer Platinum Games, who will surely do justice to the inherent hack and slash possibilities presented by Raiden's tasty katana blade.

It all looks quite marvellous, and goodness knows it's good to finally see the game back on track after a protracted absence. Save for the rather silly name, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance could be something potentially very special. Have a look at the trailer and find out why.

This doesn't look like it makes much sense to me because the sword can't cut through human flesh in a single swipe but i can cut through an entire robot arm thats twice the length of the blade?

So, the 'solid' title officially died with Snake then eh? Unless they make more Naked Snake/Big Boss games I guess.

Well, at least my fears of it becoming an Kinect/Move game didn't come true. Dunno why but the past trailers for the game always made me think the swordplay could have been integrated into them. Though honestly, I'm not that impressed anyway, to me it looks more like a bad Anime than Metal Gear.

I've never played any of the Metal Gear Solid games (asked for the HD pack for Christmas from the girlfriend)

The trailer was RIDICULOUS. I'm not sure if I would be any good at it though, since I've never played anything in that genre (hack-slash?) before.

@5 The 'Solid' in Metal Gear Solid was not referring to the character, it was related to the game being in three dimensions as opposed to being top-down. In that sense, it seems odd to drop it for this game. They should have kept it, perhaps made the title Metal Gear Solid: Rising or something. Revengeance is just silly.

I think I remember that from the Metal Gear pomo disc I got a while back, but they've used the 'Solid' moniker on things like the GBC game before, which was totally more Metal Gear than 'Solid'. It was just my assumption that the whole reason they're dropping it is because its a new storyline beginning.

Although I much prefer how the game looked before this little reboot, I will get excited for anything Platinum Games does.

Also dislike the name change, it was unnecessary but who am I to say anyway, it's their game.

Someone needs to tell Platinum Games that just because they now have the license to sweet gaming franchise like MGS, they can't just go and make up words for their games. They should have just stuck with MGS: Rising.

Is Revengance even a word? XD

It could be good, seeing as it's Platinum Games. It may not be stealth, but it should be a good action game at the least. If that's not what you want, then don't buy it I guess.

Okay... So did anyone else see the part where they brought back a Metal Gear Ray? And it had a giant sword? And Raiden actually had the strength to lift the entire Ray by the sword, and throw it in the air?

What kind of crazy anime-style crap is this?

Really glad they're making this an "MGR" game instead of "MGS". As wacky as MGS can get, this is just insane. Not that games like that, other games, can't be good. But it totally doesn't fit the setting, at all.

for those that didnt see my last message about this or dont seem to know what "revengeance" is it is considered to be an act of the most violent retaliation and surely has something to do with the story i'm kind of glad they took the "solid" out of the name and replaced it with "rising" it certainly makes the game feel like a new series in the metal gear series and the gameplay looks badass i certainly hope they do it, and the metal gear series justice with this

Man, I was really hoping for something unique with this game. Something kind of like an assassins creed but more stealthy/fast paced. The only cool things Raiden did were in cut scenes, the game play looked very bland, and even the things in the cut scenes weren't that cool.

It looks so awesome, handing the development over to Platinum games was the best thing for this game, there is small chance we'll see any tacky multiplayer mode added in when it's being made by them, the story and both gameplay will be better, this gameplay is a lot faster than when Konami shown their lil tech demo.. you can tell, Konami's team had problems getting that awesome hack n slash feel, so they came to the right people.

Its times like these, I wish Platinum Games took the DMC series with them.

Honestly... it seems like they want to grab onto anyone who hated the MGS games and have them love this. Then just hope anyone who loved the other MGS games would buy this regardless. While I enjoyed the MGS games, I am going to pass on this. This is a huge disappointment. I'll just go with getting the Metal Gear Solid HD collection.

I'm a die-hard MGS fan... And I love Platinum Games work... But I can't say I support this. We were promised an action-oriented MGS with the ability to strike out for stealth gameplay... But this... Looks ridiculous. And ridiculous is good, olive MadWorld, and Bayonetta and all the other great games they've worked on... But MG is about telling a good story with a sophisticated narrative. You can't take a fictional tale about how PMCs are overrunning modern war seriously when you have a cyborg running up walls cutting giant robots in half.

I'm actually glad i wasn't a fan of Metal Gear games going into this cuz all of its fans are passing judgement on a game that isn't even complete yet from one video that highlights its over-the-top features.

Go back to the ps3 and crabwalk around ugly, gray corridors while looking at a bunch of guards buttcracks for 30 hrs and leave this game to the ppl who want something different and fresh (oh and a whole lot more exciting)!

is it just me or does this look like it is going the complete opposite direction of the other metal gear games? going from stealth and guns. to running around slashing with swords. looks cool but i was looking forward to the stealth aspect. maybe they will still incorporate some stealth AND this wicked sword hack and slash play.

still looks good!

Trust the Japanese to butcher the English language for a game again. Do they seriously just use words because they sound cool (to them) rather than because they actually mean something? Or are even words...

Still looks pretty good compared to the 2010 footage. Honestly would anyone play as Raiden again if he wasn't a cyborg? I may love the MGS series but this is not MGS this is Metal Gear Rising. Hideo Kojima doesn't want Solid Snake to be handled by anyone else and since Kojima Productions has no plans to develop another Metal Gear chances are we will never see Solid Snake again.(in a Metal Gear game of course)

@91 I'd play as Raiden again if he wasn't a cyborg, but I never had a problem with him in the first place. I never felt he was a bad character. Now, Rose on the other hand...

@92 Kojima pretty much confirmed that most, if not all of his games will be multiplatform once the new engine he's working on is complete. Not a certainty, but good news regardless. I have a feeling the 360 will be getting a lot more love from him in the future.

After letting the news settle a bit, I'm feeling more positive about this game. I was expecting a much more "traditional" Metal Gear title, but that doesn't mean this game will be bad. I'll probably end up getting it.

This looks great. After the giant mess that was MGS4, the series really needed a new direction, and this is a hell of an interesting direction. They're taking it in a much more exciting, modern, and relevant direction. It's not like they can't fit plenty of other "old era" MGS games into the timeline eventually, since this takes place many years after 4, anyway. Quit bitching and embrace that this is going to be a fresh entry into the Metal Gear universe.

All I need to know is that Platinum games is behind this. Anyone questioning the gameplay of this game either hasn't played other PG games or doesn't really get what they're all about.

I for one am finally excited for this title.

If your going to say the timeline changed could you at least show the proof at the moment the only proof is that this game is before 4 also they changed the name because they dont have to the rights (I SUSPECT) to SOLID. Konami prolly didnt give it to them so they had to change the name other wise it wouldnt mAKE since for them to change it also this game is not like other mgs games because it is not other mgs games this is about raiden raiden is a ninja cyborg do you know any ninja cyborgs who sneak yeah i didnt think so ninja cyborgs are very violent and kill things very fast so just take my comment to heart this isnt snake this is ***** *** raiden with a sword LOVE YOU GUYS BYE

If you've played VanQuish or Bayonetta then you know what Platinum are capable of. With them developing the game we're pretty much guaranteed an all out action packed experience with solid controls and core gameplay. This is very good news for people that enjoy playing games. Those of you that play MGS games for the story should have given up at the joke they call MGS4.

For the love of god what the heck is Revengeance. I love DMC so I'm looking forward to this because its a hack and slash. It should of been called Metal Gear Raiden's Rising, or Metal Gear: Rising. How do you come up with Revengeance.
