Although Metal Gear Solid: Rising’s a title all its own, and one that differentiates, taking a totally new path from what we’ve become used to in the franchise, there are still many characters you’ll see in the game from past Metal Gear Solid installments.
This is according to the game’s producer Shigenobu Matsuyama, he told Gamespot there’ll be “several” MGS characters in the game.
“There is one rumour about some characters in the past Metal Gear Solid series that will be coming out in MGS: Rising,” he said.
“I can’t tell you who they are at this stage, but I can confirm the number. It’s not just one person or one character, there’ll be maybe not so many, but they’ll be several characters that you know off from the MGS franchise that will make a return in MGS: Rising.”
The game’s live demo was released yesterday, and in it, Raiden’s seen cutting, cutting, cutting.
No release date was divulged, however Kojima Productions assured us it was “on schedule”.
