Boycott/Change/Cancel Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

59 SignaturesGoal: 100



After producing a collection of innovative, stealth/action games known as the Metal Gear series, Konami has recently announced that the development of their spin off, "Metal Gear Solid Rising" has been transferred over to Platinum Games and renamed "Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance". The debut trailer features cinematics and gameplay from Platinum's re-launch which has left many long-term fans of the series feeling disappointed with Hideo Kojima's decision.

What could have been a fantastic spin-off that complimented the main series and explained the events that occurred between "Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty" and "Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots" (which was originally implied in previous trailers from 2010) has been reduced to a gimmicky, hack-n-slash game with a plot that will completely change the ending of the latter.


Screenshots from the original debut trailer shown at E3 2010 showcase a game that retained a similar, aesthetic style to that of previous Metal Gear Solid titles, but promised a revolutionary combat system that would bring something new to the franchise. Fans feel that thanks to Platinum Game's involvement, Rising has now strayed too far from it's roots to even be considered a spin off title.


The goal of this petition is to raise awareness that the vast majority of Metal Gear Solid fans are not happy with the fact that Platinum Games have influenced the development of the game to such an extent. Please sign this petition if you agree with any of the following statements:







Thank you for your support.
