Metal Gear Solid: Rising | Game Front

Metal Gear Solid: Rising is an upcoming game in the Metal Gear  series. Announced at E3 2009, the game will be released on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. The game will star Raiden. Hideo Kojima and Kenichiro Imaizumi will be producing the game along with Shigenobu Matsuyama, and Mineshi Kimura will serve as director.  The series’ former tagline, “Tactical Espionage Action”, has been replaced with “Lightning Bolt Action”, a play on Raiden’s name. The title Rising is also a play on Raiden’s name; the Japanese pronunciation “raijin” is a word play on a mythic Japanese storm god, while the word “raiden” (é›·é›», “raiden”?) means “thunder and lightning” in Japanese. Kojima has also confirmed that it will be a stealth game, just like its predecessors.
