This week’s Famitsu’s confirmed that Metal Gear Rising’s director is Kenji Saito. Saito, who was the main programmer on Bayonetta, was confirmed to be in the role as a part of a roundtable interview for the game featuring Hideo Kojima, Platinum CEO Tatsuya Minami and producer Atsushi Inaba. It was previously speculated that Bayonetta director Hideki Kamiya was directing the project, but it was something he continuously denied on Twitter.

Thanks, Andriasang.
