Raiden’s memes may carry on, as Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance could possibly have a sequel in the works.
Fans did not have much hope for a sequel until a few days ago, when Raiden’s voice actor teased an upcoming project on Twitter.
Raiden English voice actor Quinton Flynn was asked if a sequel was coming – to which he teased: “stayed tuned for things to be announced in the coming weeks.”
Konami has yet to announce anything, but it is nice to see that Flynn seems excited about the project, as details like these usually come from slips rather than intentional teasing.
The internet managed to single-handedly reviving Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance due to the game’s popular memes like Senator Armstrong and Monsoon.
Despite being a beloved entry on a popular franchise, Konami doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to Metal Gear, so the game sits as a standalone entry on the series.
Fans of the franchise may remember Konami teased a sequel for the game back in 2015, only to later walk back the tease and then go on radio silence.
Humorously, art made for the game’s second anniversary (above) also got fans theorizing a sequel, only for PlatinumGames to confirm it isn’t the case.
The original game is only available for last-gen platforms currently, so at the very least fans could get excited for a remaster or newer generation port of the game.
We have a review for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance just in case anyone wants to get fully immersed on the memes.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is available on PlayStation 3, Android, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows (through Steam).
