Square Enix Plays With the Heartstrings of Metal Gear Fans With Metal Gears Revengeance 2 Easter Egg

The heartstrings of the fans of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance were cruelly played with an alleged tease at Taipei Game Show, that ended up being something else entirely, and with the controversial departure of Hideo Kojima from Konami, the possibility of a sequel is difficult to gauge.

Apparently Square Enix feels like paying homage to the series, and put a little Easter Egg in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn‘s expansion Heavensward.

I would love to have a MGR2: Re-revengeancenhancedgeance. Just this morning i listened some of the stupid awesome nu-metal boss soundtracks.

Sam's track is definitely one of my favorites, but overall most of the songs are worth listening to. Unfortunately we never really had much time to build up before the fight with Sam, or the other bosses for that matter.

Considering Platinum only had about 14 months or so with the first game, i think they did an all right job.

Revengence was/is total hack n slash garbage,its mgs by name only.....bit like resident 5/6...or splinter cell blacklist/conviction....imo of course.

It's not even MGS in name, it is MGR, it is a spin off franchise and in no way effected the way MGS is.

Nothing like those other games since they are main entries to a franchise. This is akin to Super Mario and Mario RPG, they are not meant to be the same.

I loved it but I agree with you that its ties with MGS are mostly in name only. Which is what all Metal Gear games not directed by Kojima end up being.

I didn't like the story much but I thought the gameplay was great. Even though a lot of people complained about length, I still played about 40-50 hours. I think you have the right attitude seeing it as a different game because that's exactly what it is.

I know I can't change your mind about it but that's how I feel about Rising.

100% agree so tired of riden and this dam spin off.

Also its actually called mgs rising but was renamed quickly after.

Not bad xD. It's not they were hinting at anything though. FFFIV has hundreds of references to other video games including another one to Metal Gear Solid in a main story cutscene of ARR.

Konami will milk the franchise and all of its assets until it is dry to the bone once Kojima is gone. Don't support them.

Dang, I'd love a Revengeance 2. Come at me with your best, Platinum.
