Konami's Hideo Kojima took to the stage yesterday as part of Microsoft's conference at E3 2009 and revealed a new Metal Gear Solid title was on the way called Metal Gear Solid: Rising. The game will apparently be based around the character of Raiden.

In a surprise twist though the game will now be multiplatform and is confirmed for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC according to journalist resource Games Press.

Currently listed with a TBA release date, Games Press added platform details for the new Metal Gear Solid title shortly after Kojima made the announcement. Konami itself hasn't confirmed any formats for the title other than the fact that it will definitely be coming to the Xbox 360, but since the announcement didn't include any mention of it being an exclusive...

A second new Metal Gear Solid game has also been revealed by Games Press, this time for the PSP. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is down for a release in 2010, which has led to speculation that it may be a downloadable exclusive for Sony's new handheld platform, the PSP Go. Sony has confirmed that the PSP Go will be getting a new Metal Gear Solid title, but not whether it'll be an exclusive.

More details about both games are expected to be revealed as E3 2009 continues, so we'll keep you posted on the latest details as and when they emerge.
