What Do You Want From A Metal Gear Rising Sequel?


On the official website for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Konami have linked to “Metal Gear Fan Survey” that asks a number of questions related to Metal Gear Rising and the Metal Gear Solid series, as well as questions more loosely related to the action game genre in general.


For instance, the survey asks if you’ve played other titles by PlatinumGames, such as Bayonetta and Vanquish. It also asks if you’ve played Devil May Cry, Ninja Gaiden, Grand Theft Auto and Call of Duty.


With regard to Rising itself, the survey tests your knowledge of the series, before moving on to ask about what you would want from a potential sequel. Did you know it was produced by Platinum? Do you think the game is directed by Hideo Kojima? Are you under the impression that the game is a button-masher? Do you want more romance in a future game? Online play?


Other questions pertain to marketing. Where did you learn about the game? What sources of information were most useful to you? What key visuals or illustrations from the game do you recognize immediately?
