Kojima: I Want to Make Metal Gear Rising 2 with Platinum

The full story at SPOnG: "Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has heaped a huge amount of praise on Metal Gear Rising developer Platinum Games, revealing that he would like to make a sequel to the action spinoff and would only consider partnering with the Bayonetta studio for the job.

"In a roundtable attended by SPOnG, the producer also opined that Platinum is just a technological upgrade away from being "a world class studio."" (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PS3, Xbox 360)

I hope he just leaves this here. Don't get me wrong the gameplay was pretty good. Not the best but pretty good. The story was just ... *no words*.

This game was exactly the way it was supposed to be. Not a GIANT MGS powerhouse of a storyline, very good gameplay, and great difficulty options.

Im glad Kojima is giving this game the praise it deserves, Im a HUGE MGS fan, and this spin-off is exactly what a spin-off should be...a fun game that still keeps the universe intact and even ADDS to it in some ways.

Im enjoying the hell out of this game.

As a SUPER fan of Metal Gear, I'm kind of glad the story wasnt as big or complex as any of the other titles.The bosses had enough good lines and arguments for me to enjoy.P* stayed true to what they excel at and the bosses were all very good.The gameplay is really fun especially on harder difficulties.The last boss fight was one of the best I think I have played this gen. If they made a 2nd part I'd buy it day one also. I really am enjoying the game now that I finished it and can explore and work out all the boss weapons and try and "S" level everything. I think Kojima knows what's best for his franchise so what ever he's cool with I am too.
Also I needed a good Hack N Slash too. so as a fan of the Metal Gear series and Hack N Slash games this is perfect for me.

Hanso  +   545d ago

I will soon do a codec only run :D .

I haven't played it yet, but imagine a sequel on PS4!
nemrawy  +   545d ago
On next gen console plz ... YES!!!
PhantomTommy  +   545d ago
Metal Gear Rising is really great, with just a few tweaks here and there it could be something truly special so I'm hoping they get to make a sequel.
Summons75  +   545d ago
Yes please, the first is nothing less than beautiful. Pg are great underrated devs.
Crystallis  +   545d ago
The game is awesome. Cant wait for a sequel.
SAE  +   545d ago
Told you guys. Even kojima said it. The only thing that they could have improved it in mg rising 1 is the graphics. I hope it's kojima engine not next generation platinume engine. They would make it much faster and better because they already made it..

It´s problably gonna be on fox engine, because revengeance was suppose to be on it. But since kojipro had already wasted so much time in development when P* came in, they decided it would be a lot faster to make it in an engine that P* was accostumed to.

I haven't even played MGR properly, but what I have played so far, I could definitely keep playing MGR games.

Very nice spin off, very fluid combos just like Bayonetta and at times you feel quite powerful with all the clashing of blades and such.

This game is the very reason why I love Platinum studio. They make games that are fun and exciting. Can't wait to see what else they have in store for this series.
Shuyin  +   545d ago
Pls no...

@Hanso
There is a great codec easter egg. You should definitly do that codec only run.
Root  +   545d ago
So is this actually cannon now to the series

I love Metal Gear but I don't really want to buy this....I feel like I'll have to though to understand more about MGs universe.
RyuX19  +   545d ago
If you love Metal Gear then you might like this game. Just remember the game can get really silly at times.
Root  +   545d ago
Thats what puts me off

If it was a non cannon spin off I'd be fine with it but if it was canon...well then it's ridiculous in my opinion

Metal Gear Solid is a little silly a times but Rising just takes it one step over the line
RyuX19  +   545d ago
It doesn't really effect anything though. It doesn't effect Snakes story or anything past related to other MGS games. It's a spin-off that has it's own little story with Raiden and because of that I think it's fine to do whatever crazy crap they want to do.

MGS has gone over the line enough times for me to not really be phased by the over-the-top things. Does MGR go even more of the top? Yeah, but it's part of the fun. You gotta be a little more open minded with the game. Don't go into it expecting an MGS game, you go into it expecting a high-octane action game with Raiden and trust me you will get it.

It just wants the player have a lot of fun playing a video-game which something I feel a lot of games are missing.

So far one of my favorite games of the year and its challenging!
oriononer  +   545d ago
Please please PLEASE Platinum, just add on the fly weapon switching to this combat system next time around. I can't wrap my head around why it isn't included here. I keep wanting to switch from the Sai to the Polearm to the Katana move set and hate having to pause to do so. That's my only gripe. Otherwise this is pure video game heaven. There are so many great moments and huge replay value. It's super fun and the character design is incredible. Weapon switching would put this over the top. Maybe stupid question: does anyone know if something like that can be patched in? Is there any way to get Platinum to include it after the fact? It would add so much to the gameplay.
