In a surprise appearance, Hideo Kojima, the mastermind behind the Metal Gear series announced today during Microsoft's E3 keynote that he is in development on a completely new Metal Gear title to the Xbox 360.
The game will be called, "Metal Gear Rising" and will be starring series veteran Raiden, from Metal Gear Solid 2 & 4. The title also claims to have "Lighting Bolt Action." Umm..... Sweet!
Although the secret behind the Raiden image has been revealed, what about the other images of Big Boss (if it is him) and that creepy mask? With the countdown on Kojima's website still ticking, it seems likely that Kojima has at least a couple more surprises for us at this years E3.
