Metal Gear Rising Director Officially Revealed

Kojima Productions and Platinum Games collaboration will feature Kenji Saito as the main Director for the upcoming game Metal Gear Rising. Saito was the main programmer on Bayonetta.

As reported earlier, Metal Gear series Creator Hideo Kojima originally wanted to finish Metal Gear Solid: Rising with expectations of a stealth ninja action game. However the project was scrapped due to the ineffectiveness of combining stealth and the ninja action the studio wanted to implement. The Kojima Productions staff did not feel that stealth and high speed action would work well together.

Fans have voiced their concerns that this will not be a “true” Metal Gear game without the stealth component. Metal Gear Rising will be playable at this years Electronic Entertainment Expo. The game is due out this late this year.

    Allow me to state the obvious. This is NOT a Metal Gear game, regardless of the name. As much as I’d love me some Metal Gear stealth action, but Rising is an entirely new approach to the series. Its made by Platinum Games, developers behind Bayonetta and Vanquish. If you had a chance to play either of these games, you would probably understand this new approach. This will be more likely of a love it or hate it kinda thing. Personally, I am very excited about this.

    people say the same thing about Resident Evil 5…. I generally agree with those people.

    i have one problem with that statement, ninjas are by principal stealthy, therefore there’ll be no such thing as “ninja action” as they said.

    however, i agree this will be a hit or miss game.
