When Metal Gear Solid: Rising was first announced back at E3 2009, the mystery surrounding this game was astronomical. Few details had been released since then, but not enough to give a clear idea of what the game was about. At the Spike VGA 2011, a new trailer was shown along with a new title. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance became the new title and Platinum Games (Bayonetta, Vanquish) became the new developers of the game.
The setting of the game changed from a prequel to Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots to taking place after the events of that game. When gamers got a look atthe trailer, there were mixed reactions to the direction the game was taking. Since then, Metal Gear creator, Hideo Kojima has been making the rounds, clearing the air about what kind of game it is.
