The game will put the player in the boots of Raiden, the protagonist from Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. And guess what else? It’s coming to the PC! This will be the first game since MGS 2 to do so.
In related news: Snake? Snake! SNAAAKKEE! That’s a famous line from Metal Gear Solid if you didn’t know. Why I put it there is that Metal Gear Solid: Rising may very well not feature the famous hero from previous games.
"I don't know if I'm doing Metal Gear Rising. Nobody's contacted me about it, so I have no idea. They usually call me once the Japanese game is done and they're starting to get into the English translation. So we're not completely done, but it's on its way by the time they get in touch with me."
The game is said to be shown at E3, with more details to come.
