Hi MGR:R and MGS fans! This is Kenji Saito, the director of METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE.

METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE is 10 years old this year. Wait for it… a DECADE has passed! Can you believe it?!
To celebrate this incredible milestone (albeit in a humble manner), we have decided to release some anniversary art to commemorate this special occasion! We are truly grateful to the artists who came up with these amazing creations!

In addition, we wish to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all our fans who have supported us and the game over the course of this decade! Thank You!

Ten years after the game’s release, my most recent memory of anything to do with the game is seeing Armstrong and Sam appear in so many memes globally! It feels unreal that MGR:R is still a topic of conversation a whole decade later. This recognition of the game has also led to an increase in player count over the years and we’re also seeing heaps of players continue to stream the game online to this day. This is truly moving stuff…

I still believe that METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE offers an experience like no other, even a decade after its launch!

Cutting and slicing never felt so good!
I look forward to creating many more memories with METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE in the years to come!

We were also fortunate enough to receive this awesome celebratory message from the MGR:R music composer, Jamie Christopherson! Thanks Jamie!

Hello, this is Jamie Christopherson, the composer for MGR:R,
10 years, Jack. I can’t believe it’s been 10 long years. Thank you so much to all of the old and new fans of the game and soundtrack for “METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE”. I am pleasantly surprised that the game and soundtrack have kept their relevance and continued to be admired and played by fans across the world. Personally, I have found great delight in seeing all of the fun memes, reaction videos and cover versions of the songs that we did for the game. To know that the music and game have brought so many people joy means a lot to me. Thank you for playing and listening, and I can’t wait to see/hear what you all come up with next!
