Metal Gear Rising 2

On February 22, 2013, Kojima told SPOnG that he would like to make a sequel of Metal Gear Rising. He said that if it does happen, he would like Platinum Games to develop it. Kojima also stated that he would like the sequel to star Gray Fox and have him battle "nano machine-powered zombies". He went on to say that he offered to write the story himself, but Platinum Games did not seem interested. Etsu Tamari, chief story writer for both Metal Gear Rising and the original Metal Gear Solid: Rising has expressed interest in reusing the original idea into the potential sequel. Extracted from this page.

First, what do we know about this sequal? We know it will potentially be made, most likely be developed by Platinum Games, and will maybe even use the FOX Engine. Now, theories.

I have two theories for the next Rising game.

My first theory is what is stated in the extract above. It will be what Solid: Rising failed to be. They would take the game mechanics from Revengeance and use it with the plot of the original Rising. It would take place between MGS2 and MGS4, focusing on Raiden rescuing Sunny and him becoming a cyborg. Though I do believe Kojima was a bit sarcastic at that part... star Gray Fox and have him battle nano machine-powered zombies.

My second theory is that it will take place shortly after Revengeance, when Raiden sets off to fight his own war.

After the credits of Revengeance we see a cutscene of Raiden fully restored wearing a suit, just like at the beginning. He stands in an alleyway as he is confronted by four cyborgs never seen before. He then reveals his case which was hidden in his hand with Stealth Camo, most likely containing a High Frequency Blade. The camera zooms in as he grins with his face.

Revengeance Ending Mini










The game will probably focus on Raiden resolving all the wrong things he has done, but since we see him being confronted by enemy cyborgs, that means they must belong to an organization that had something to do with his past. Maybe it will focus more on the Sears program, followers of Solidus, and maybe even Solidus himself.

What we do know is that Raiden has a new body, but what will it look like? It's thin enough to be unnoticable through a dress. Maybe it's like a thinner wearable version of the black body he has in the game? I highly doubt he will be using the same body as the one in the beginning, as it was inferior in many ways.

Anyways, discuss below what you think it will be like.

I hope that they make a sequel. After the ending there is no way they can just end the story there. Somewhere down the line his fight has to be over, and he has to come to terms with himself and his Ripper persona. Plus, what about the rest of the offices around the world, and if those cyborgs aren't part of World Marshall or even remnants of Desperado, then we could be dealing with a completely new company, which could mean that not only does he have to worry about World Marshall, but a new company that wants to kill Raiden. Plus, what about Blade Wolf being playable, and if they're gonna consider Raiden being a ninja cyborg then give him the same heat knives Blade Wolf used. In their first trailer for MGRR there was a attack he used by slicing and dicing an enemy cyborg high speed then slashed it to pieces. I do think there should be a prequel but if they make it a prequel it shouldn't be only from between MGS2 to MGS4, it should be a whole origin story of Raiden and the full details of his past, present and possibly his future. If they make a prequel then nothing should be left out and the ending should lead into MGRR, meaning we see what's going on after MGS4. This is my opinion of course, but the idea of Raiden having a story only of what happened between MGS2 and MGS4 doesn't do him justice. Give him a whole origin story, with gameplay between MGS 2 and his stand point in MGS4. Include both stealth and hack and slash, not that minimal stealth crap from MGRR, but stealth from MGS 2 and 4, but with 4 changing from stealth to hack and slash and the begining with gameplay from MGRR but revamped. This is what I would want, and anyone can agree or disagree.

Yeah, they're definitely going to need to make a sequel, since the ending left room for one. While they're at it, PlatinumGames Inc. will most likely need to make Metal Gear Solid: Rising as originally intended.

Following Snake and Liquid, Raiden should have an archenemy.

Raiden - Jack the Ripper. How about a new sword-wielding cyborg whose name matches Hannibal Lecter? It must be someone from the Liberian Civil War as Raiden.

If the original script will be used, that'd nake it a prequel, technically lol

I still think would be more interesting with Fox following his "rebirth" after his death in Zanzibar Land, but most likely will never happen.


btw, is Rising 2 a true thing or everything is still at the same "I'd like to make it" level?

It's possible that there won't be a sequel, what with Kojima's departure. Then again, he wasn't too involved with the first game anyways...

What do you guys think?

I really doubt that, considering Platinum were the ones who wanted to not being restricted by the timeline doing an interquel, their creativity would take a dent.

I think MGS Rising as a project is dead and is never happening, I really doubt Konami is gonna waste their main in-house efforts to make a side game.

I wouldnt be suprised if some flashback levels are in MGR2 sequel though

I would like that I have always seen Rising as a separate universe where they can do some different and cool stuff without being bugged by the main timeline

Well, that was the main reason why Platinum decided to scrap the interquel story and went post MGS4.

I hope next game for Metal Gear Rising, Raiden faces someone he knew back in the Liberian Civil War, either an enemy or an old comrade/friend.

More swordfighting!
