    Looks fantastic thus far!  Loving the colors in the swords!  One of my most anticipated games for early next year, cant wait to get my hands on it, Platinum is one of the best when it comes to action games so GET HYPE:)

    Japanese trailer for MG Rising was also uploaded by Konami. It’s the same trailer with E3 and Gamescom, except it’s in Japanese and at the end of the trailer, you can hear Raiden talking to a young girl. That girl could be Sunny.


    Japanese voice for Raiden by Kenyuu Horiuchi sound way different compared to Quinton Flynn’s.

    • DanteJones

      I can’t imagine Raiden being voiced by anyone else than Quinton Flynn, it just fits so freaking well. I’m not knocking on the Japanese voice actor, but Quinton’s version is just so… good.

      (Also, dat profile picture <3)

        Haha, same here. I get used with Quinton Flynn’s voice as Raiden. The Japanese one sound deep and more manly but it’s cool too.

        As for my avatar, I just happen to be a fan of the artist (Iizuki Tasuku ; same artist who drew the Iroha picture I used as an avatar before) and he made a drawing for a mascot character for the site dannychoo.

          Ahh, I thought it looked familiar! Both the character and the art style. :)

        Kenyu Horiuchi is famous for voicing Pain in Naruto Shippuden and the Claw from Gun X Sword. I like Horiuchi’s voice acting but I prefer Quinton especially as a cyborg since he expresses more emotions in my opinion.

        • DanteJones

          Yeah! Hes also got that sort of gravely effect to his voice which really helps him sound more like someone who went through all the crap Raiden did in his life.

  • DanteJones

    Hmm, two of those screenshots are interesting. It looks like Raiden is closer to as he was in MGS4 facing off with what could be a rival/nemesis character, yet he looks different in the other ones. Maybe he loses that fight which leads to him looking more mechanical in the other screens?

    • Raiyu

      That’s actually what happens…he works as a PMC for extra cash for his family, he fights and loses against Sam (in the screenshots), he then gets a new body and is turned into the new Raiden.

      • DanteJones

        Oh nice! Was this covered in one of the other topics/videos? I feel like I missed something..

        • OatMatadoQuatro

          Check this. It contains a brief explanation regarding the plot. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MhHBrMmZuQQ

            Thanks for this! I must have missed it somehow. :(

    • z_merquise

      Well, you’re right. It was mentioned before that you’ll get to control Raiden in his MGS 4 cyborg-body (maybe at the beginning of the game ) in a short time before he was defeated by his rival.

  • Tales_of_Master

  • Pedro Magalhaes
