"Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance" Features Non-Traditional Gameplay, Silly Name
Hideo Kojima, creator of the Metal Gear series, announced at the recent Video Game Awards, that the much anticipated next game would feature non-traditional gameplay for the IP, and would also feature the silliest title in the popular franchise.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance won't have the stealth gameplay that made the original Metal Gear Solid a trendsetter," Mr. Kojima said. "We figure that when you have something that fans love, the best idea is to discard it in favor of something more generic. Much like the Transformers movie franchise."
Other titles suggested for the new Metal Gear included Metal Gear Rising: Subsustenance, Metal Gear Rising: Sons of the Guns of the Patriots, and the controversial Metal Gear Rising: Revengeanceocalypse.
"We went with Revengeance, after we regained our composure from laughing," Mr. Kojima explained. When all was said and done, it was certainly the least ridiculous of the titles."
Konami and Platinum, who are developing the new game, promised one thing gamers will be able to count on. "The gameplay may have changed, but the traditional fifteen minute cut scenes will remain. You're welcome."
Surprisingly in related news, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeanceocalypse of the Subsustenance is being considered as a potential film property by M. Night Shyamalamadingdong...
