Hideo Kojima just won’t give up on Raiden. After a somewhat dubious debut as an effeminate, angsty product of child soldier training in Metal Gear Solid 2, the fans cried out in dismay as Raiden took centre stage over Snake. Things took a turn for the surprising when Raiden returned in Metal Gear Solid 4 as a bad ass cybernetic ninja who easily tore through the kind of mechanized foes that gave Solid Snake a run for his money. Now he’s back in his own game, but with Kojima taking on more of a supervisory role. The game was handed off to Platinum Games, best known for Bayonetta and more recently, Anarchy Reigns. As to be expected, heads roll. And arms, legs, cybernetic spinal cords and the occasional torso.
