E32009_MGSR_art_Render Now out in the wide open Konami sent out art of Raiden, the star of Metal Gear: Rising. In the Xbox 360 (and most likely PlayStation 3 game) Raiden appears to have a different (incomplete?) cyborg shell.


Here’s Raiden from Metal Gear Solid 4 for reference.


Kojima Productions also changed the tag line for Metal Gear: Rising. Instead of “tactical espionage action” Metal Gear: Rising will deliver “lightning bolt action”.

    I don’t think it’s Raiden. His eyes are blue.

    I feel the same way. I noticed that immediately back when the image showed up the first time.

    That is Raiden. It’s been confirmed in the Microsoft conference by Kojima himself.
    However, i was hoping for a main game not a spinoff. If they decided to bring MGS to X360 it would’ve been better if they brought MGS4 not a random spinoff with different gameplay.

      Sure it’s “Raiden”…just not Jack. Someone else has picked up the codename, it seems.

    Could it possibly be Frank Jaeger? I know he was crushed as Gray Fox in MGS1, but he has that tendency to keep coming back.
