Metal Gear Solid: Rising… CUTTING EDGE!

Anticipation… RISING…

I just saw the E3 debut trailer for the upcoming Metal Gear title, Metal Gear Solid: Rising. After all these years, this title looks to give gamers what they’ve all been asking for… the ability to play as a bad-ass, super-powerful cyborg ninja. Konami missed the chance with MGS4, but this time it’s all about Raiden AND his sickeningly sharp blade. In fact, Raiden’s sword seems to be central to the gameplay, allowing you to CUT and CUT with exceptional precision. It leads me to thinking that maybe Rising will support the Sony Move or Microsoft’s Kinect motion control devices so you can direct your slashes like you’re waving an actual blade.

A fully-destructible environment and enemies open to cutting up as you please would be pretty sweet… and stress relieving to the max. Heheh.

Rising is probably set before the events of MGS4, perhaps revealing the events that turned Jack into a cyborg, plus his battles against The Patriots and rescue of Sunny Gurlukovich. Hopefully it will also show us events post-MGS4, to see where this white-blooded hero’s fate is headed. Can’t wait to start cutting up dudes when this comes out, whenever.

E32009: New MGS Games for Xbox360, PSP

It’s barely the first day of E3 and some bombs have already been dropped. Namely stealth bombs, from the Metal Gear Solid franchise. For starters, the Xbox360 will finally be getting some MGS love, with Metal Gear Solid Rising. This new title will apparently star Raiden, the somewhat controversial Snake Alternate-turned-Cyborg Ninja. Whether it’s a prequel set before MGS4 revealing the circumstances behind Jack’s transformation into a white-blooded half-machine sword-slasher or a new mission set after Guns of the Patriots remains to be seen.

The other title revealed is Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, which apparently will be released on PSP. This may be another adventure starring the ubiquitous Big Boss.

Both titles are still shrouded in mystery, so we’ll just have to keep watching and waiting for anything else to be revealed in E3. Metal Gear, Metal Gear everywhere. Awesome!
