Before Metal Gear Solid’s Raiden, There Was “Jack”

By Ishaan . May 17, 2012 . 4:31pm

What appears to be the last in Konami’s series of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance live-action trailers is up. Konami say the next round of news on the game will surface at their pre-E3 conference, two weeks from now. As for the trailer itself, we’d recommend sitting this one out if you’re squeamish—it’s a little disturbing. Watch it below:

 

 

Regarding what’s going on in the trailer… “Jack” was Raiden’s actual name before he was cyberized. The trailer looks like it’s being presented through his eyes as he watches someone being tortured.

    Hmmm haven’t really enjoyed a Metal Gear game since Snake Eater. I’ll be keeping an eye on this for sure though!

      It took me forever before I actually sat down and played MGS4 all the way through.  When I finally did though, I wondered what took me so long.

    They can do whatever they want with the story. I don’t give a shiit. 
    Handing this game over to Platinum games was a decision that could only be explained as “divine intervention”. 

    It’s gonna be friggin’ nuts and I’m gonna love it.

    Hee hee, this snippit kind of gives me a Clockwork Orange vibe. “You must stare, Jack, at this dying man and listen to lullabies on the radio.” I don’t know if they’re conditioning him to hate relaxing music, or to relax when killing people.

    Good trailer – but what’s with the actor playing Jack?

    Raiden has *way* more hair!

      This is Jack in his Child soldier days, unless you already knew that and if not Shame on You! Read up on Raiden!

      (don’t take this too serious xD)

    Since many people obviously have no idea who is handling the story in MGR: Revengeance:

    The lead writer for Revengeance is Etsu Tamari from Kojima Productions. His resume includes:
    -MGS Database
    -In-Game Voices/Briefing Files/Radio Scripts in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

    He is also responsible for the script of the original Metal Gear Solid: Rising, but he chose to write an entirely new story for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

    Helloooo~~~ George Sears!

  • XiaomuArisu

    So can anybody translate the code in the end of the trailer?Would be interesting to know what the 1 and 0 means.

    • Aleksi Eerola

      01000101 decodes into “E” and 00110011 into “3″.

      So, E3. Logical, no?

        ohhh binary!

    Why did I choose to watch this at 2 AM!? I’M SCARED AND DISTURBED AS HECK!

  • http://kanpekijan.blogspot.com/ KanpekiJan

    It’s still being supervised by Kojima Productions… Really, we don’t know enough about the story to say anything about how it will turn out. Just wait for it to come out before you judge it…

  • z_merquise

    Platinum Games handle the game design and mechanics. Story, characters and art direction is still handled by Kojima Productions.

  • Zal_Yagun

    What been shown with the teasers actually holds up to Raiden’s back story. You know being a child soldier trained by the 43rd President George Sears AKA Solidus Snake….

  • boundries_san

    Not really lol. Kojima said he had no hands on this game anymore if i am not mistaken.

  • Laharl

    He’s said that about every game since 2…

  • http://kanpekijan.blogspot.com/ KanpekiJan

    I didn’t say Kojima himself. I checked out the 25-minute interview once more, and, to correct myself, the story is being written by a writer from Kojima Productions in collaboration with the game’s director.
