Rising Has Nothing To Do With Metal Gear Solid


Konami has blunted stated that Metal Gear Rising is not part of the Metal Gear Solid franchise.

His words came after the game’s VGA 2011 trailer was leaked on the internet, and fans raged up a storm about the title’s direction, and how it’s nothing like what a Metal Gear Solid game should be.

Kojimasan said, per Andriasang: “We’ve only said that the period setting is several years after MGS4. Metal Gear Rising is not part of the Metal Gear Solid series. At present, we can’t say more than this.”

Kojima has been on Twitter and on his Podcast trying hard to defend Metal Gear Solid from being mingled with Metal Gear Rising, but fans are asking why did they go in this direction in the first place? What were the reasons behind the “slicing” theory being part of a Metal Gear Solid game, a title that’s based mostly on stealth and tactical espionage action?
