One of the standout developers throughout the life of the Nintendo Switch has been PlatinumGames. Not only has it delivered some amazing games like Bayonetta 3 and Astral Chain, but it has also released a number of previous hits on the popular hybrid system, such as The Wonderful 101 and most recently Nier: Automata.
If you’re wondering what he’s been up to in the new year, it looks like he’s getting ready to celebrate the 2013 hack and slash anniversary. Metal Gear Rising on February 21. It’s been a decade since this game debuted on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
“METAL GEAR RISING REVENGEANCE 10th Anniversary Event Notice – On February 21, 2023, “Metal Gear Rising Revengeance” will celebrate its 10th anniversary since its release. On the day of the event, we will reveal the anniversary art #MGR on the official PlatinumGames Twitter for the 10th anniversary celebration so don’t miss out”
As noted in the Google translation above, Platinum is asking fans not to miss the event, where he’ll be sharing some commemorative artwork. Despite the slightly underwhelming teaser, it seems like it was enough to get Metal Gear fans on social media excited – with some even hoping for a possible game announcement.
Adding to that, Quinton Flynn – the voice actor of main character Raiden – has been teasing announcements for the “next few weeks”, one of which has been confirmed as appearance in autograph current. Other than that, he still retweets about the game’s anniversary every day in the lead-up (thanks, PC Gamer).
The last 3D Metal Gear game to grace a Nintendo system returned during the 3DS generation with the release of Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D. In somewhat related news, there have been rumors of possible remasters lately.
