Dislike Metal Gear Rising? Then wait for 'stealth MGS' sequel, says Kojima

on 13 December 2011

Hideo Kojima has suggested that gamers who aren’t too fussed about upcoming action romp Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance should simply wait until the next stealth-based entry in the franchise comes along.

Rising was re-revealed at the Spike Video Game Awards on Saturday, with Bayonetta developer Platinum Games now at the helm after taking over from Kojima Productions.

However, the new trailer showcased a decidedly action-oriented flavour to the proceedings, which hasn’t sat too well with the hardcore Metal Gear aficionado. 

Kojima has a solution, however – "patiently wait" until a true MGS sequel emerges.

“Had same kind of questions @today’s conf. Our ex-RISING also were aiming at feel good action w/ protagonist, Raiden as a Spin-off, not MGS & such concept was shared w/ New RISING by P*,” he wrote on Twitter.

“For those of you desire for authentic stealth MGS, I want you to patiently wait for the sequel coming in future.”

Metal Gear Rising is due out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2012.
