Metal Gear Rising now takes place after MGS4

Metal Gear Rising: Revengance‘s story has joined the rest of the game in radically changing as shown at the VGAs today.

The game’s official website reveals that the Platinum Games-developed title now takes place after the events of Metal Gear Solid 4, not before as originally intended. Back in his cyborg ninja get-up, Raiden is hired to protect a country that is starting to lick its wounds from a recent civil war.

This changes, well, everything. Why can we see Metal Gears in the trailer if it’s post-Guns of the Patriots? Why has Raiden returned to his ninja outfit?

We need answers. That seems like all we’ve ever wanted out of this title so far.
