Default MGS Rising Unlikely To Have Many Returning Characters


By now, Metal Gear Solid fans have deduced the chronological period Rising will take place within the MGS timeline, and hypothesized on the dark, life-changing events in Raiden’s life that took place between his appearances in MGS2 and MGS4. What we could assume as a solo mission of self-preservation and survival has been confirmed by Kojima Productions’ Shigenobu Matsuyama, who reiterated the fact that Raiden’s story will be a completely separate journey from the Metal Gear timeline, and as such, we should not look forward to familiar friends or faces.

Speaking with Games magazine, Matsuyama, Metal Gear Solid: Rising’s creative producer, dismissed concerns of confusing newcomers to the series or weaving more plot strands into the intricate, and beautifully hand-made cashmere sweater that is the MGS series:
Quote:
“To answer you question about returning characters, we’re probably not going to show too many characters in Rising because, since it’s a new part of a series, we don’t really want to refer to and dwell upon the Metal Gear sago so much.”

“We want newcomers to the game to come in and play freely without needing to know and understand the background of the whole Metal Gear Solid universe.” he continued. “We don’t want to have it all tied up with the story from MGS2 or MGS4 and make it too complicated.”
Rumors have been abound regarding a likely cameo from former series star, Solid Snake, but from the sounds of it, this may very well be the only tie in to the Metal Gear Universe that we’ll see. The jury’s still out on whether or not this is a good thing.

That's all ok for me. No need to bring back everybody if they are looking to really start a new arc in the MGS storyline.

you say metal gear to me and i immediately get a image of snake crouching down to answer the beep beep of the codec lol. I have never really been too keen on the look of this, but i'll try it to see how it is. You would expect there to be a newer "cast" with the storylines of previous games and how they might be looking to change direction.

Makes perfect sense to me. The stories of nearly every character, if not all of them, were finalized in Metal Gear Solid 4. We pretty much know everything about everyone in the MGS Saga, so I don't see the need to bring back any old characters - their stories are done.

No one quite knows yet the story arc to this game and when in then MGS time-line it will take place (though it is speculated and highly likely between 2 & 4), so we can't say for sure yet. I'm going to go assume and say no, however. That being said, I highly recommend, playing all the games, as it is quite possibly the best franchise ever.

What makes you say that?

With the release of MGS: Rising, it makes Raiden be the star of two titles, Solid Snake the star of two titles, and Big Boss the star of three titles. If Raiden were to get two other titles based on him, than we can say he has taken over.

well if you break it down like that then there will proably be a new character in this game that will have his or even her(which would pretty cool) own tittles.

This game makes me think of what Final Fantasy 7 did in giving Vincent his own game, sure there might be some other characters from the series in it but over all it will be about Raiden and what went on with him and his sexy android body.


Though really, dark life changing events? he goes through alot of those doesn't he like being a child solder for one and earning the nick name the ripper.
