MGS: Rising gives Raiden a back story

Where did he get his cool toys?

At Konami's press conference, Kojima Productions revealed a bit more about the game's storyline.

The story is set between MGS 2 and MGS 4 and will explain how Raiden became the stealthy ninja cyborg he is when we see him in MGS 4.

The game will focus on making Raiden cooler in the eyes of MGS fans.

MGS: Rising will also work on making the sword a fearsome weapon again.
