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.

    i thought this was kinda bad

  • Um he was Jack before ANYTHING with him in it. In fact, he was a child soldier soooo

  • Prinnydoom

    Well that was………dark even by mgs standards >__<

  • Solomon_Kano

    Interesting enough. Can’t wait to see what they’ve got for E3.

  • KingGunblader

    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.

    I think it’s time for Jack… To let er’ rip!

  • “Pressing that cold metal against another man’s throat, feeling his pulse – it’s personal!!”
    Future President of the United States, right there.

  • 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)

  • Aleksi Eerola

    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?

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