Slice and dice master Raiden getting his own game was already an awesome concept that i was fully on sword with, so its hard to believe a project this cool and well shown would be secretly cancelled. I know its a shocker right? Well the original Rising team focused on the idea of a game of pretty much slice and dice.... that was it though. After that cutting vision was seen the team lost what the heart of the game would be and then Kojima decided to cancel it abruptly.
Platinum games creators of games like Vanquish and Bayonetta came to them and wanted to take over the project, with Bayonetta being a huge action success why not let them have the chance to make Metal Gear: Rising great? Well let's for starters get some things out of the way:
- Changed the name of the game from Rising to Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.
- The story is being changed a little bit, the story Konami came up with is having the narratives changed a little bit.
- A sequel to Metal Gear Solid 4 as originally planned and is a straight spin off and part of the canon series.
- Bayonetta director Hideki Kamiya will not be involved as thought.
Even with a new company behind it i know Platinum will make this game the best game this can possibly be and as powerful and amazing as it deserves.
