A scan from a Japanese magazine of unclear origins has popped up online confirming Sunny will be returning in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. The child prodigy and daughter of Metal Gear Solid 2's Olga Gurlukovich was always a breath of fresh air, a smile in a room of soldiers consigned to their own doom. Sunny was always quite sunny. It won't surprise you then that when I hear an older Sunny will be in Revengeance, I get worried.
Let's be honest, Metal Gear has had some solid depictions of women as characters, but at the same time they've almost all been sexualized in some manner, often to the point of just being ridiculous. From awkwardly ogling Meryl in her underwear from a vent in Metal Gear Solid, to the Boss's cleavage scars, to... whatever Metal Gear Solid 4's Beauty and the Beast Unit is. Take that and add Platinum Games to the mix. Yeah, I was worried Sunny would be slutty.
This scan, however, is promising. Sunny's definitely older, but she looks pretty cool. Hopefully she still has that air about her, that unique personality she portrayed in Metal Gear Solid 4. Don't mess with Sunny, Platinum Games! Check out the full scan below.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is scheduled for a February 19 release date for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
