E3 2010: Metal Gear Solid: Rising Cuts Its Way Into Our Hearts
The purists may not like the fact that Metal Gear Solid has gone all Ninja Gaiden with Metal Gear Solid: Rising but...good goddamn, maybe you haven't seen this yet.
Konami has officially announced Rising for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and along with that unveiling came the very first gameplay footage. This third-person action slashfest appears to be beautifully choreographed and designed; Raiden as the lead character should definitely shine. The flashy ninja has been "revamped with upgraded cyborg technology resulting in a fluid style of gameplay simply described as 'Lightning Bolt Action.'" In all honesty, we weren't holding out much hope for this one but we obviously forgot that anything related to MGS is basically awesome.
So, what do you think? Pretty sweet, huh? No, there probably won't be much in the way of stealth but quality is quality. Besides, we have every confidence that Kojima and Co. will eventually release another stealth-oriented MGS at some point in the future. And don't forget that Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for the PSP is considered to be "MGS5" by the designers and it's a legitimate portable Game of the Year contender.
