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.

Metal Gear Solid 5 Officially Confirmed, Details Soon

If you read our QuickNews post yesterday, you would know about the shuffling of producers that the spin-off Metal Gear Solid title, Rising, is going through, leaving some of us with a questionable view of said title now.

But don’t fret! Hideo Kojima has said to expect details for both Rising, and the newly confirmed Metal Gear Solid 5, possibly as early as the end of the month. No official word on whether or not Kojima-san will be producing MGS5, as he previously said he was done with Metal Gear Solid (though he’s said that more than once), but don’t be surprised if he will be.

It will be interesting to see where this series goes now, since MGS4 kind of left no room for a true sequel. Maybe it’s a modern take on the original Metal Gear titles? I guess we’ll find out later this month!




Metal Gear Solid: Rising Gets a New Producer. Again.

According to Joytiq, there seems to be some shuffling going on over at Kojima Productions. Hideo Kojima passed the producer role for MGS: Rising to Shigenobu Matsuyama in June 2010, but now it has been confirmed that production responsibilities will now land on Yuji Korekado, who is also working on ZOE HD.

The game is scheduled to have more of a showing at this year’s VGAs (on December 10th), but it begs the question: with the shuffling of producers, is there something inherently wrong with the game or is the game’s direction so questionable that these guys don’t want to take the reigns? I guess we’ll have to wait until December to see what we’re getting.
