The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Kojima Wanted To Make Metal Gear Spin-Off That Starred Gray Fox, Not Raiden

Posted on Friday, January 18 @ 13:13:27 PST by Alex_Osborn

Believe it or not, it wasn't Hideo Kojima's idea to have aMetal Gear Solid spin-off centered around Raiden, as the series creator actually would have preferred to go with cyborg ninja Gray Fox.

In an interview withIGN, Kojima explained the reasoning behind the decision to go with Raiden despite his initial desire to have a game starring Frank Jaegar.

It was actually not my idea, it was my staff in Kojima Productions that insisted on Raiden, and I respected their idea. I wanted to really focus on production than development, and they wanted to come up with a really cool hack-and-slash title with some Katana action and Raiden in it, and I thought ‘okay, that’s fine, I respect that’.


But in my personal opinion, I wanted to go for Frank Jaegar or Gray Fox. But if we had gone with that, I would have had to write the script and then be really committed to creating the game. I want to pass game development to the younger generation in my team, and have been trying to do so for quite some time.


I don't know about you, but I really hope that this doesn't rule out the possibility that we'll one day see a Metal Gear Solidtitle centered around the tragic tale of Gray Fox. Are you glad that we're getting to play as Raiden inMetal Gear Rising: Revengeance or would you have rather seen a game starring Gray Fox as well? Let us know in the comments below.
