Metal Gear Solid: Rising has found its groundwork. And that is Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Rebooted and retooled. Kojima Productions have decided to allow Platinum Games (developers of such great titles as Kamiya's Bayonetta and Mikami's Vanquish) to make the latest spin off in the Metal Gear franchise. But don't let that steer you away from KP working on MGS5.
With that out of the way let's look into the past, present and future of Rising before we see more at E3."The previous version of Rising aimed to have feel good action with Raiden as main character as a spin-off, not MGS. The same concept is shared for the new RISING by [PlatinumGames]. For those who are hoping for a stealth style MGS, this will definitely appear at some point, so please wait for a true sequel."

Following the news comes a series of viral videos which depict elements related to the game including glimmers of Cyborg Raiden having flashbacks into his youth as a child soldier with Solidus.
