"Gritty and violent" Rising trailer at VGA is 3 minutes long
December 05, 2011 09:05 am
Now that the Official PlayStation Magazine UK issue with the Hideo Kojima cover story is out with little information on Metal Gear Solid: Rising, Geoff Keighley is left to hype the fuck out of what is a new trailer that will debut live on Spike TV's Video Game Awards on the 10th this month. In a video posted on Spike TV's website, Keighley calls the new three minute Rising trailer "pretty gritty and violent" and "real badass." Doesn't sound like much has changed since E3 2009, eh?
From the way Keighley and Spike TV have been promoting this trailer and Hideo Kojima's live appearance though, it almost seems as if Kojima Productions changed the name of the game from Metal Gear Solid: Rising to The Truth About Metal Gear Solid: Rising. While the skeptic in me disregards this as typical PR, Keighley more or less told me to shut the fuck up and sit the fuck back down.
"Some people are wondering why are we saying "The Truth About Metal Gear Solid: Rising?" Why aren't we just saying a world premiere of Metal Gear Solid: Rising? Well, that's deliberate because there's some breaking news about what's going on with this game. [...] Well at the VGAs Hideo Kojima is gonna be live on stage he's gonna tell you what's happening with the game, which I think may surprise some people."
Unless Kojima cancels the game, makes non-cyborg Raiden playable for a good portion of the game, announces a series reboot, makes it a game about Snatcher instead of Metal Gear, makes it an iOS exclusive, or quits Twitter, I am not sure if I will be surprised. I'm expecting Rising to be available on the PlayStation Vita with Transfarring enabled for the PlayStation 3 version. I'm expecting a mild introduction to Producer Kore-P who has replaced Shigenobu Matsuyama. I'm expecting watermelons and lightning. But I wouldn't mind be surprised.
