Scrawl: "This morning on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, Metal Gear Solid: Rising was updated from its old placeholder box art to the box art you see above."
Looks pretty cool.
He seems to be holding the spine of would could be a defeated cyborg enemy. Also, the thing on his back looks like a pretty cool weapon. I can't wait to see some gameplay.
Looks like a light version of Fortunes/Crying Wolfes railgun, imho.
:crosses fingers: please be alien, please be alien, please be alien,..... Everything else has aliens, so why not MGS, :rolls eyes: Xbox 360, WTF?!
Raf1k1...Dude me too. First thing I said..."Rail gun, huh? Day one" Some folks hate the departure from the Solid series, but I look forward to the re-acquaintance. Hopefully Raiden and I will hit it off better this time. Just. No. Naked. Somersaults. lol
That thing on his back looks like sum sort of future electric guitar lol (i dont like it)
I think it's some sort of subsonic stabilizer ;)
Like with the previous games. It's been like that since Snake Eater, with NA getting some shitty CGI boxart, and EU getting Shinkawa's artwork.
i know right the NA boxart for MGS4 is terrible, good thing i got the special addition with the good artwork.
Where are the wavy lines that they have been talking about the past few days? You know, the one's they said replaces the old design to make way for Natal!
lol Am I the only one that doesn't care about the box art? At this point the game could be ANYTHING, we havn't seen a screenie as much as a video of gameplay. I just cant help wonder if this game's development is going well at all.
This game....is so not a Metal Gear Solid title.... Why is Solid even in the title? It should be called Metal Gear Rising (without the Solid).. eh.
it bothers me as well.. and i read in news that they haven't even contracted for snake voice over... MGR sounds right to me.. E3 plz bring the tiny winy, insy winsy gameplay.... peace ps: i dont give a flying ratsass about the boxart... all i care about is what i am getting out of the dvd/bluray..
That kept it as MGS:R for name brand recognition. I agree, MGR would be a MUCH better name, but what the fuck ever. This isn't even a TRUE MGS game.
Does this mean MGS Rising is going to be featured in MS's conference? That would be a bit ironic. Can't wait for E3 in a couple of days!
He has some killer thighs. It's almost like he has a phat ass. Lol
that box art is hot. I hope that is the real box art
That has to b e Frank Jaeger. The game looks sweet, wonder if it will be like God of War?
the boxart is so badass
It Looks Like Grey Fox To Me.
Fox did have white hair. so did raiden. oh shi- Raiden was an orphan, raised by solidus. Raiden's father is...... grey fox! confirmed by me.
Hell yeah son
that was funny as hell +bub :D
if that's the boxart, it'll blend really well with the PS3 gamecase better than the green theme of the 360.
lol, you just can't help yourself can you?
Sorry xaviertooth, but that just sounded desperate lol.
*facepalm comments like that make us PS3 fans look bad.
While I do agree (I've never really liked the green casing of my 360 games), this is a very silly comment to make.
Its no fucking wonder you only have one bubble left, come on man, at least troll harder!
LOL That was FUNNY!
i just realize that i have wasted my bub on a one bub dude.. silly me... btw... it wouldnt hurt you a bit to act like a gamer not a hater... whom im kiddin...never mind.. peace
Its the whole tone or what you wrote. It sounds desperate, effeminate...gay even. I'm sorry but... ROFL!
More like flop art. It's so generic. Why not some Yoji Shinkawa art just like MGS1-4.
^^THAT Someone who also thinks this boxart generic. +Bubble
I think if they used Yoji Shinkawa's art for MGS:R there would be some seriously peeved fantards. Yes it would be absurd, but then again are fanatics rational? Keep Yoji Shinkawa art for the core MGS games IMO.
It's probably designed to appeal to the action crazy western audience. You could replace Raiden with Kratos or Ryu Hyabusa. Still looks pretty great though but only because of Raiden's design IMO. edit: For all we know this may not be the final box art. It could still change. Also, isn't that the old 360 strip at the top? I thought they were using the new one now?
Thats looking cool. Looks like they may show something at E3.
Some footage would be very nice. EDIT: Ooh, I missed that Kingdom Come, thanks for the heads up. =D
MGS Rising is confirmed to be making an appearence at this years E3.
Like saying its a 360 exclusive?? For the love of god nooo.
Completely unrecognizable as anything remotely Metal Gear. Don't trade in Shinkawa's badass drawings for this cheap Americanized crap. You can just feel Microsofts venom slowly crippling this franchise already.
i agree man i mean its NOT mgS wtf?? it can be renamed MG not MGS and no more stealth? get out but i still appreciate another MG to play and learn more about crappy Riden :/ i want Snake back :'( (not Big Boss)
Quite cool, yet quite generic, hoping for more than this for the confirmed Box Art.
is that the ray gun on his back.. and a spinal cord in the other.. AWESOME
This is going to be completely different from the Metal Gear games we've come to known & love in the past. & is that Solidus' reinforced spine (thing) that Raiden has in his hand??
It looks cool, but totally un-mgs like. Looks like theyre trying to target another markey :/ im mixed about "lighting bolt action". Theres a lot of good hack and slashers(NG, DMC, GOW) I dont think koji-god has ever done a hack and slasher. Im still hoping theres going to be stealth. Did anyone play MGS:VR missions / MGS:Intergal? It had 3 missions where you played as grey fox, it was awesome. I would like to see them do that rather than a action game. No way in hell it's the final box art; it doesnt have "A Hideo Kojima Game" unless he isnt directing- which would actually make sense considering how "different" this game is.
cool but i hope this game is good !
DMC like action Boxart looks great^^
Its looks like a vanquish typ of game only in the metal gear universe and the cutscene i saw Raiden fighting against that ballerina vampire dude the character really lends itself for that type of gameplay.
can someone or one of you tell me whats generic about the design?is it because he has his back to the pcture? maybe he's camera shy
It looks like every other action game-Protagonist standing victoriously, yet obviously exhausted with his back to the camera--and there's no Metal Gear Flair. It's just blah.
^^^ This!!! :gives bubbles:
something goes wrong .... lighting bold action :S i bet its a gow clone that involves kill 1 million soldiers and a "new metal gear" this will be a global failure, if theres no espionage at all
"LIGHTNING BOLT ACTION" ? REALLY?
Lightning Bolt Action has been on the logo since the game was announced, that's no new. I don't know why the article pointed it out like it was some new development.
if its HnS then i cant say anything yet... coz MGS is know for its stealth action .... i never support the idea of calling it a spinoff... now i am leaning towards it..if they are trying to take a new turn then i/we hope that they dont disappoint.... all we can do is wait ... which is freaking hard :( if its HnS then i would not be surprised to know that they are using Castlevania : LOS engine, animations or techniques.. just want to put it out there.. :) peace
will be interesting :D
Is it a man or a women?
I think it looks great! Is there something wrong with that?
i cant wait to play this on my PS3 =]
Wish it had some nice artwork on it.
that metal gear rising boxart seems nice a bit reminds me of mgs2 with the colors.
That boxart is Sic!..cant wait to see game play.
That's what I'd like to call bad#ss, like "bad" in the #ss.
reminds me of: http://www.bungie.net/image... ...what am I doing here?
but it looks awful. it's looking more and more (with every bit of info)like this will be the first MGS game that i WON'T buy.....thanks MS - you've corrupted another great franchise.
I'm not even slightly hyped for this game. I'll wait till I see gameplay trailers to reserve full judgment though. But for now, not even looking forward to it. Can't stand any more Raiden. From the looks of it this will play like DMC or something.
aahhah you'll still buy it its ok....heres your tissue
