According to a report by Videogamer on Feb. 22, 2013, Hideo Kojima, creator of the “Metal Gear” series, would like for a sequel to the new game “Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance” to star the cyborg ninja from the first “Metal Gear Solid”. Frank Jaeger, also known as Grey Fox, became the cyborg ninja sometime after the events of “Metal Gear 2”, and “Metal Gear Solid”.
In “Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance”, you play as series regular, Raiden, who has become a cyborg ninja himself, very similar to Grey Fox before him. Kojima believes that it would be a natural progression to go from Raiden in “Revengeance” to the fan favorite Grey Fox in the sequel.
Unfortunately, it seems like Platinum Games, who took over the reins on “Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance” aren’t too keen on the idea, and don’t seem to be taking Kojima’s pitch very seriously.
"We started off with the concept of having Cyborg Raiden as the main character, but gradually as development proceeded he kind of grew closer and closer to Cyborg Ninja.
"Honestly I think that personally if we are going to make a sequel to Rising it should feature Frank Yaeger as a main character versus zombies... nano machine-powered zombies. That's what I'm proposing to Platinum and the producer of the project, but they seem to be ignoring me.
"I said I'll even write the story for it, but our story writer said, 'no that's ok, that's ok. Don't worry about it'."
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance came out in stores on Feb. 22, 2013.
