Metal Gear Solid 5 - prequel starring Raiden?

As Kojima was mentioning the distinction between Japanese designer driven games and Western technology driven games, he mentioned that he felt that a combination of the two methods should be used. He stated that this was the direction that he felt Metal Gear should go, and as the animation played out, a frame stopped with large letters stating: the next MGS. The startling thing was standing behind these words – a conceptual figure of Raiden stood behind this phrase with his back turned towards the screen. It was tiny, but it was distinctly the cyber ninja.

I'm not sure how the stealth aspect is going to fit in this game, its so rooted with Snake that its going to be strange for a Metal Gear game.

out with the old in with the new! Bring on MGS5 ... or wateva they call it..!

i dont get what your trying to say
raiden was the main character in MGS2 and his stealth/sneakiness was just fine

if i've misunderstood you....sorry :P

i would love a welcome change. if they are going to put raiden on the fifth one then it probably has some stealth mechanics and a more ninja like movement and skills ala ninja gaiden. SWEET! i'm starting to like it already. bring it on kojima san! bring it on!

Honestly, I think a spinoff series starring Raiden with Kojima's team working with Team Ninja would be absolutely amazing if done right. Typical MGS stealth, story, cinematics and some cool guns (even if their use gets toned down some) along with NG close combat fighting, ninja maneuverability and a range of awesome melee weapons.

Hideo really likes Raiden... he was sad that people hated him on MGS2. He redeemed himself on MGS4... but i was still surprised that he didnt die when he got crushed by an Arsenal Gear... weird, no?

arika3221d ago

i love raiden, especially on mgs4. now i know why kojima gave a lot of emphasis on raiden's story also making him a hero in the end and not letting him die, even though he was almost crushed to death.

just imagine guys, the graphic quality of uncharted 2 and killzone 2 and the gameplay of mgs4, ninja gaiden and assassins creed(i know kojima is interested in that game too) combined! man then we've got another killer exclusive on our hands. SWEET!

Please, please, please, please let this be. This is what I wanted. I wanted to use Raiden in Metal Gear Solid 4, but I didn't get to. I wasn't angry because that Vamp fight that Raiden had was awesome and everytime he appeared in the scene I my eyes glistened and widen very large.

I remember when people used to hate Raiden with a passion
