It’s not out until February of next year, but Platinum are keen to develop Metal Gear Rising: Reveangence 2. In an interview with Siliconera (which we saw via OXM), Kojima Productions’ Creative Producer Yuki Korekado and Platinum Games’ Director Atsushi Inaba spoke about a potential Raiden focused sequel. Inaba, who sounds up for more Metal Gear Rising said;
“I really think I was able to see Raiden grow independently and strong as a character and as a man. To be part of that was an honor. Moving forward, if Kojima Productions feels that another Raiden game is needed I would love to be a part of making Raiden’s next growth.”
On the KojiPro side of things, Korekado was a bit more subdued on the topic of a sequel, but it does seem like both teams have hit it off big-time.
“In Rising, we got to see Raiden grow as a character and develop as a person, Beyond that, within the Metal Gear universe there are a lot of characters and stories. Within that we were able to show the value of the universe and expand on it. We were able to prove we can create branches to explain more deep stories within the universe.”
With such a rabid fan base, Metal Gear Rising: Reveangence has a a real task in front of itself. Two different fan bases coming together and, for the studios involved, hopefully enjoying Reveangence so much that sales warrant a second Raiden spin-off. Though, going on various reports, all signs point to this game being a delight to play.
Metal Gear Rising: Reveangence will be released on Februrary 22 in Europe and February 19 in North America for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3
How's things? I'm the video guy and would love if you'd watch the things I do like Debatable and For Your Amusement. I spend the majority of my days explaining why The Wire is the greatest TV show ever and clamouring for a Pop-Punk revival(c. 1994) whilst singing in my best Axl Rose-esque voice. Do not say professional wrestling is “fake” around me or, he’ll bore you with, what I like to call, “the risks they take”. Henrik Larsson is my hero.
