Rising Won't Slice It Up Until 2012

Although it's a spin-off, many are anxiously awaiting news of Metal Gear Solid: Rising, the action-oriented title featuring franchise mainstay, Raiden.

When it was first unveiled, we expected that it would be released in 2011, which means we'd have to be patient. Well, it now seems we'll have to be even more patient because according to Kotaku, Rising won't hit until 2012. Switching "Tactical Espionage Action" for "Lightning Bolt Action" and set between the events of MGS2 and MGS4, Rising looks to be ultra-promising. Series guru Hideo Kojima is involved but he's only acting as the game's producer; he won't be writing or directing and he once said he was turning things over to a younger group. Some of the more ardent MGS fans don't like the new direction but there's always a chance Kojima will make a true MGS5 (with the inclusion of the patented stealth element). Still, the mastermind has stated in the past that he wants to work on something different and as far as we know, he might be doing just that right now...

Well, anyway, if Rising isn't due out until 2012, we'll just have to put it on the back burner for a while. Plenty of other amazing games due out in 2011, yes?

Delays don't bother as long as they aren't on the magnitude of Duke Nuke'em's (i.e. halting or dropping development altogether).

I'll be surprised if UC3 makes it for 2011, that seems soon to me and I picked up and played that title at when it was brand new. Twisted metal is soemthing I'm pretty interested in though:)

Yeah. Will give Twisted Metal a go. Uncharted 3 will blow everyone's minds if it does release next year. SOCOM I don't think its for me; I played Confrontation and was not impressed. Versus... F13 ruined FF games' reputation for me.... :(

That's ok tbh I havnt thought bout this game for awhile. I don't mind, I'll prolly pick it up when it releases but don't care to much otherwise. If it was a true mgs installment I may be upset.

I guarantee by the time Metal Gear Rising is released, it will be touting Move and Kinect support for the slicing action.
At least that'll make it marginally more interesting than an otherwise lame MGS spin-off.

I think you should clean that up a bit.
do you mean with move it will pass as a decent MGS spin off or do you mean that it will be better than past spin offs?

I cant see this on Kinect , unless the gameplay ends being very simple , or MS release a control for Kinect.

I mean to say that, regardless of Move or Kinect, that Rising is still an undesirable spin-off. (from what I've seen, compared to the main MGS series)
But, by having integration with Move/Kinect, it will make it slightly funner to play.

Note: I didn't think the PSP Metal Gear Acid and Portable Ops spin-offs were good, either. I've yet to try Peace Walker.

I don't think it's undesirable, many fans are wondering what happened to Raiden between MGS2 and MGS4.

This is Konami's answer to their question.

Just look at No More Heroes Ps3/360 version, is only compatible with the move , there's no way you can play that without pad and buttons.

And Rising seems like a much more complex game.

This game to me is like an amped up version of the Afro Samurai game if you've ever played it. They used the same kind of fighting style with the whole slow-motion slice & dice deal it's just allot more advanced in this game. This game is what Afro Samurai should have been.

Hmmm as much as I dislike Raiden if this is implemented with Move I might get it. Could be interesting that way.

two reasons I'm not interested in this game, first it doesn't have Solid Snake and second Kojima is not really working on it, just producing. I LO-VE MGS but this game is not MGS.
Why is MGS even in the name?
I don't know, maybe I will end up loving it, raiden is very cool, but it's just not a true MGS.
2011 is full of amazing games, and some I most likely won't get through. plus GT5 will take a lot of my gaming time next year. LBP2, TM, Ghost recon, Kill zone 3, LA noire and MS Apocalypse will fill in the rest of the time.

Yes it is true that snake wont be in it and kojima wont be writing or directing but even so i really DOUBT kojima will let the younger crew ruin the series. Im quite certain its gonna be a hella of game. ;)

Aww, I was looking forward to this being one of the hit titles of next year. Guess now it has to go toe-to-toe with Bioshock: Infinite. You know, I hope when this is done, someone has the bright idea to make more spin-offs focussing on different characters and play styles. Imagine a tactical shooter with Meryl and Johnny, in the MGS universe. Or a more Western styled game with Ocelot as the gunslinger. The series has so many characters that they could make it last forever based on spin-offs.
Peace.
