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.

MGS2 was already on Xbox. Not to mention Twin Snakes on Gamecube.

MGS2 was arguably the worst in the series.

EDIT: Twin Snakes wasn't nearly as good as the original.

I absolutely loved MGS2!! I've played that game over and over. According to my memory card I'm on playthrough #8 right now at Plant C. I love the entire collection yes I Did chomp at the bit to play Snake the majority of the time, but I still had loads of fun with Raiden. Overall I WILL NOT be getting this game, as I feel Konami sold out Kojima and I'm not fan of them extorting Kojima San's artwork for money. I do support all other forms of MGS, i have all the PS1, PS2, PSP, and PS3 iterations and yes even MGS Portable Ops which I also loved!!! But no crappy Game cube ones.

I can't agree JMO_INDY. The whole time i was asking myself when i was gonna get Snake back and when it never happened i couldn't believe it. The game just felt wrong. In fact it was the only MGS game i traded after only finishing it once. Just wasn't a MGS without Snake.

MGS3 is what MGS2 should have been.

@Jawknee, I played through MGS2 a couple weeks ago for the first time since it's release a decade ago. Every bit as wretched as I remember. That series REALLY rebounded with MGS3 (subsistence version), which in my opinion remains the pinnacle of the series and one of the best games ever. I'm stoked for the arrival of Peace Walker in the mail later this week for that reason.

Would that mean that the Portal franchise would get ruined as well because it's going multiplatform?

Just being fair here with the statement you presented - but no...I kind of know what you mean.

I still hope though there is some amount of stealth action in this game - but seeing how you cut of body parts and go wild with your sword...I honestly don't know how you can act badass swinging that sword of yours around and stealthily at the same time. If Kojima Productions can do it - hey they've won me over.

I'll be getting it...when it's like $25-30 or so.

But overall the trailer was good...but kind of repetitive at the end - I mean it just showed...............well CUTTING.

What about more elements? Right now just cutting? And what did Raiden take from the human enemies? From the Mech-bot he certainly took some power source...but...I mean





OH C'MON guys at Kojima Pro. ANSWER ME! What is this game about?!

JAWKNEE WAS WRONG!!!
MGS2 was probably my personal favorite. The story was timed so right and left me baffled. The gameplay had elements that MGS3 DIDN'T have. It's also worth adding that MGS2 made psx's top 10 of the decade list.

This video rocked imo. Yeah we'll always wonder what the game could have been had it stayed on the PS3 and nothing else. But the fact of the matter is everything Kojima touches turns to gold. Rising will still rock. I was a little worried that the gameplay might not be anything special. I thought we were going to see another DMC clone. And yet some how Kojima Productions has managed to surprise me again.
THIS GAME WILL BE A D1P for so many different reasons.

Twin Snakes was a remake and almost a reimagined one with how differently some action scenes play, not a port at all. Snake literally jumps around like Neo. The scene of Snake in the prison cell, when he jumps up like spiderman to the ceiling, is what gets me about it. It is atrocious.

@Jawknee: Interesting. I don't know if I could consider it the worst. They were all so good in such different ways. I'm not quite sure how you could "argue" MGS2 inferiority, since it's really just a matter of personal preference. The fact that you didn't play as Snake isn't really an objective basis either. At first I was bother by it, but I absolutely loved the way he continued to play a part in the storyline. In fact, in some ways it was even better than me playing him, since I was able to witness his awesomeness in full glory without it being weighed down by my own mistakes.

Yeah, although I already knew since the very first announcement of Rising, that it was one of his younger teams that was actually going it, it was STILL under his guidance & direction.

And perfectionist as Kojima is, even if he didn't do it himself, he'd would never allow any crap to leave his production studio.

I love this franchise and I always did since I plyed it way back on the PS2(one of the first games I played on it). I love snake. I hope going multiplatform it won't ruin the franchise The E3 trailer even was played at microsofts conference:(
But This game does look prety good i just might have to barrow it, rent or play the demo before i spend $60. There are still other games I havent been able to play yet So I think this one will have to wait.

Well, I personally think they should drop the MGS from the title and just name it Raiden: something or other. Otherwise people just expect stealth or basically classic MGS gameplay, and that's not the case.

From what I gathered, the gameplay will allow both stealth and action just like MGS4. I am psyched about this game for sure. It really puts the ninja in Ninja Gaiden (though it's a part of MG franchise), because it will have exactly what Tecmo's hack'n-slash doesn't: stealth.

This generation ain't over, yet.

But seriously, why put the Metal Gear name to it, why not just make it a whole new franchise of game. On it's own merits I'm sure it'll be good but it's not really an MGS game if you take away the main core element of stealth. Just my opinion anyway.

This is very common with Japanese products. They use the name from a known product line for the initial offering and eventually drop the title once they've acquired their fanbase. Look to Honda and Toyota for examples at a worldly scale. I wouldn't be surprised if this happens with the next volume.

Like Metal Gear Raiden. I think it should be something like that. It's still in the Metal Gear universe but there is no Solid Snake.

I was originally opposed the the game but after seeing the footage, I'm genuinly excited. I'm a huge fan of the franchise, so I'm happy with any Metal Gear game, but it is refreshing in a way to have a new take. However I hold out hope of anything Solid Snake related in the future, new game or old redone.

The game looks fun enough to warrant the purchase.

I hope Kojima is allowed to make another MGS for the PS3 exclusively like Peace Walker or MGS4. Peace Walker is freakin great. Should have been a PS3 game but instead we get....MGS Twitch Rising with Manshe Raiden.

Well, according to an ign interview Rising will still include stealth elements if stealth suits the player's style.

Looks like this will be the first MGS game to be completely banned in Japan - no way CERO will pass 'Metal Gear Solid: Rising slashfest action' even with an 'Z' rating.

Kojima said a while back that he's about to break a certain industry taboo and may retire altogether if he screws up.
After that trailer I guess he referred to Japan only. Us bloodthirsty westerners like the red stuff, well except German game censors, but that's a different story (it's funny if you're German ^^).

I never was expecting much from an MGS spin-off title, especially after reading that MGS4 was the first PS3 game to utilize the whole DL BR disc.
Guess Rising won't feature that many pre-rendered cut-scenes then :P
But the E3 trailer changed my opinion, looks rad.

Consider my interest piqued.

Well Jawk, you have to understand that Japanese Game Censors (CERO) are amongst the strictest ratings boards worldwide. Probably even worse than USK (and USK is really tough on games with any blood/violence).

They're kinda twisted. We know that Japanese entertainment industry produces the world's weirdest/sickest shit. But it's different with games. Guess they are so strict on games as they are interactive media.

Let's take NMH as an example. The game was heavily censored in Japan (and Europe), as well as the PS3 HD remake. Only uncensored versions were the US-NTSC ones (Wii and 360).
Mad World wasn't even released in Japan - where the Wii install base is rather large - as CERO would certainly refuse classification.

Extremely violent games are either not released at all in Japan or only in heavily censored/edited forms, it's very similar to Germany.

Fist of the North Star (and RGG aka. Yakuza) are bloody games but they're no way as graphic as Rising.
I don't think blood is an issue to CERO, it's rather graphic violence and gore. Hence no Mad World and NMH only heavily censored.

Fist of the North Star got added violence for its western release if I remember properly.

I can assure you that CERO won't pass even their highest 'Z' rating, which is legally enforceable, on MGSR. Heck, they even Censored GOW3 (which got an 'Z' rating) - dunno whether there were any violence-related cuts, but the Aphrodite scene was too hot for CERO, so they replaced the vestments for non-revealing ones.

I've got no concerns for Kojima, worst case scenario: No MGSR release in Japan. Not a problem to him - he intended it for an international/western audience anyways :P

It'll sell for sure.

Don't worry (or do worry, however you take it ^^) - there won't be many cut-scenes in MGSR. They're restrained to a single DVD and twitch gamers don't like 'boring movies w/o twitch action' anyways.

Yea, MS probably ruined that one. I'll wait for more gameplay info and reviews anyways.
Maybe it'll turn out decent after all.

Why are people still calling MGS a "Sony franchise"? The PS2/PS3 may have the best games in the series and most of the titles may have appeared on Playstation, but Sony doesn't own the IP. Strange that no one's making a big deal over the MGS title that's coming to the 3DS

Wow, so much dislike here for MGS Lite here.

Although I'd rather all of MGS games staying on the PS3, I'm still happy to be able to play any new MGS game, even if it's only a spin-off one.

Matter of fact, I wouldn't mind see Kojima Productions make a spin-off game based on each & every one of the characters in MGS, but just give them all to me on the PS3.

They could show the storyline of how each character got to the stage where they're at now, with everything that led up to this point in history, and utilize their own perspectives to make each story different.

Come on now, I mean who else wouldn't also want to see the history of Meryl done, as seen from her very own beautiful eyes????

porting/remaking later on is different from multiple formats from the get go... that has what has happened in the past. yes it has appeared on multiple platforms in the past. but it is a playstation franchise. that's where mgs is most at home.

I have no problem with rising going multi anyway, even if it suffers, for me I see no evidence of a emotionally engaging story befitting the franchise there to begin with, exclusive or not. Peace Walker which I'm about to fire up is where it's at.

I absolutely loved MGS2 for me it was better than three, the fight with Vamp for me was priceless and the ending was superb of course excluding the first cause it's the original, 4 is the best.

As for rising it aint a metal gear but if Kojima is welling to put his name on it who am I to say it will not be good, now after getting TM all I want is the new ZOE and FFViii sequel yeah @eLLeJuss i said it 8 is better than 7 .lol

I have no problem at all with a game starring Raiden, and this one looks really cool to me. But Konami should drop the "Metal Gear Solid" part of the title. This is way too far removed to justify carrying that name.

I partly agree with u, I think it should carry Metal Gear in the title, but not Solid.

LOL after Peace Walker got finished I read that Kojima now its working on the Metal Gear of the 3ds , he really its avoiding to work directly in this game , still it looks really good .

I would luv to beat it and replay MGS4.

Speaking of Peace Walker Ben, is there going to be a review from you or Arnold anytime soon =D?

I know how busy you guys have been at E3 (what journalist hasn't?) but I wanted to ask.

I'm sorry but MGS4 is 2 years old, granted it has some of the best graphics in video games, but this games graphics didn't look as good. The video footage looks good, but the gameplay graphics take an obvious hit.

Granted it was shown on 360, so might be ok on ps3, but from what I saw on g4tv in Hd, it wasn't as good.

As for the gameplay, honestly being able to cut a watermelon doesn't make me ooooh and aaah. I'm not a fan of twitch gaming hack n slash and so unless there is a lot more to this game than what is shown, I'll probably have to pass.

Sad, because MGS4 was so amazing.

My take on that watermelon chopping was just a quick little Kojima Productions parody on themselves.

Kojima's known for a shitz & giggles, or two inside his games, just like his little snicker...."time to change the disc,...oh wait it's a PS3"(or words close to that effect).

And that just tells me even though they toil hard honing their craft, they're also showing everyone they have fun doing it too.

Psyched for this even if it is a multiplat.

Slightly off-topic: Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D on the 3DS??!?!? Why not the PSP? Or even a remake to play on the PS3? Why oh why oh WHY??!?!

I'm inclined to think it was just a tech demo, a la FF 7. what would the reason be to remake 3 inparticular. and why wouldnt the psp get it. etc etc.

You know, MGS2 was the first of that franchise I played, and I quite loved it. I was expecting Raiden to be a lot worse than he was, but it was all good. Kinda reminded me of me. Anyway, I liked it enough to buy MGS4, and add some GOW style to MGS and it'll be awesome. I honestly hope though that there is some strategy to the attacks. And I hope that this can redefine the action genre. If any dev can it's Kojima Productions.

Either way, I will get this. More info will determine whether it's a D1P, but I have a good feeling. Also, where's my cutscenes damnit. If this doesn't have at least four hours, I'm going to be disappointed. Follow S-E's example and put it on three discs if you must.
Peace.

This looks good in some respects but what i want to know is how indepth the story will be. i mean this isn't even the true successor to MGS4 so...

The gameplay wouldn't win me over. I've got GOW3 for awesome sword fighting. But this does look pretty good. I'll keep my eye on it.

The gameplay looks good, but that cutscene they showed us was awful, look how ugly that soldier looks hin his childlike armor, i was glad he was ripped apart!

While i am interested in this project i can see it going in a bad direction, an over the top manga style direction...

this was by far the most impressive video i have seen from E3 so far.
for one simple reason, it delivers on what it promises.
they said cut, take. and they certainly did allot of that!
id love to see this added with move support, it was so cool the way you could trip enemies up than slow down time and slice them horizontally in half!
i think i have my substitute for ninja gaiden.
actually, this is looking like the best sword fighting game ever released!
Kojima strikes again!
he has the Midas touch, everything he touches turns to gold!

A franchise that goes from a previous almost full blue ray game to a dvd game for the sake of those who only want to play Gears of War and Halo?! You broke my heart Konami! I will definitely pass this one.

I'm detecting a lot of pessimism. I for one am thrilled for this game. MGS is one of the greatest game titles of all time. This may not be your favorite, but cmon guys it's still going to be one hell of a game. This trailer didn't even mention the story and we all know that's going to be another mind bending experience.


Dose any have any idea how this game works? Is the game engine just calculating new polygons on the spot after you bifurcate an enemy or is this voxelmaping of some sort??


Also, Arnold or Ben still waiting on that Peach Walker review?

I'll be getting this day one.
I love all the Metal Gear Games. I agree with Jawknee I was like maybe I'll get to play as Snake later on. Nothing, then Snake helps you and you bump into him thats when he says use my name Pliskin (a reference to Escape From New York's Snake Pliskin played by Kurt Russell).

I can imagine playing this with the move (especially the part where you get to choose how to slice the guy), and I think it would be a lot of fun.
