* MidDevelopmentGenreShift: Originally the game was announced under the title of ''Metal Gear Solid: Rising'' as a stealth-action game with a focus on stealth hunting. The game instead shifted to a focus on hack and slash gameplay when the development was of the game was switched from Kojima Productions to Creator/PlatinumGames. However, the emphasis on stealth hunting still remains with the alert system, AR vision mode, and ability to hide and do stealth take downs (akin to the ''[[VideoGame/Batman ArkhamSeries Batman: Arkham]]'' series).

** The game was intended to be dubbed solely in English when Platinum took hold of it, with subtitles depending on the region à la ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' and most of their previous works during their time in Capcom; this was a decision Kojima had supported. Konami, several members of Kojima Productions, and allegedly Creator/KenyuHoriuchi, Raiden's Japanese voice actor, had managed to convince Platinum into providing a Japanese language track for the final version.

That said, the imperfect lip syncing in the final version makes it obvious that the changes and recording were made too late.

** [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Ezio Mode]] for Raiden's Ninja Run, because you have limited LeParkour abilities with it active.
** ''Heavy Metal Gear Solid'', due the habit of firing up the song lyrics at clutch moments.
** [[Franchise/DevilMayCry Devil Trigger]] for [[SuperMode Ripper Mode]]. Funnily enough, the controls to activate both Ripper and Devil Trigger (for [[VideoGame/DmCDevilMayCry the reboot]]) are the same: pressing down both analog sticks.
** Dog-Shaped Robot Buddy for [[RobotDog Bladewolf]], coined by a [[BlindIdiotTranslation poorly translated]] survey from Konami about what fans want out of a second ''Rising'' game, and popularized by LetsPlay/ChipCheezum.

** On consoles, ''Metal Gear Rising'' is a UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 exclusive in Japan because the Japanese UsefulNotes/XBox360 version was cancelled.
** Western fans aren't going to get the Solid Snake Sword DLC thanks to Creator/DavidHayter being replaced for ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' by Creator/KieferSutherland; it'd be too expensive to bring him in for a joke role.
