MGS Rising

Peace Walker? Phft, that’s for the hardcore Metal Gear massive: Hideo Kojima reckons Rising will bring in new fans for the series.

The theory given by the legendary dev is that with the game being developed by a new team – Kojima is only producing the game – it’ll bring in a new audience.

“The next MGS… “RISING.” this game will create new users, be developed by the new generation, a new MGS,” he said in a tweet.

He further added: “But on the other hand, [Peace Walker] is made by Hideo Kojima, a new but classical MGS. PW is a new type of game design and experimental for future endeavors.

“So it is hard to say it will finish with one game…”

Kojima did a Wada moment at Microsoft’s E3 press conference last summer, when he appeared and announced the game originally for 360. It was later announced the same week it would also be coming to PS3 and PC.

Since then, it has gone underground, with producers for the game revealing in Famitsu last year it won’t reappear until E3 this year. We’re counting down the days. Are you?
