Konami announces Metal Gear Solid: Rising


Who saw this coming? Konami—that is to see, Mr. Hideo Kojima himself—just announced Metal Gear Solid: Rising for the Xbox 360. That’s what all those little clues were about.

Do we know anything particularly useful, like a release date or plot? Nope. All Kojimi-san said was that it’s coming, it’s a whole new experience, and then the disembodied voice yelled something like “Raiden is back!”

Now we being months of speculation. How much did Microsoft throw at Konami to get the game? What does this mean for Sony and the PS3? What does this have to do with Project Natal? Etc.
