Hideo Kojima, the mastermind behind the Metal Gear Solid franchise, has been hard at work bringing his franchise to that next level on the PlayStation Portable. Despite the announcement that Metal Gear Solid: Rising was coming to multiple platforms, Kojima made it known that it wasn’t really “his” title and that his main focus would be on Peace Walker.
These claims are made even more evident in a recent Tweet by the legend himself.
“The next MGS… “RISING.” this game will create new users, be developed by the new generation, a new MGS, but on the other hand, “PW” is made by Hideo Kojima, a new but classical MGS. PW is a new type of game design and experimental for future endeavours. So it is hard to say it will finish with one game… “
While Rising may end up being a great installment into the MGS franchise, true fans of the series are always going to appreciate and consider the games fully focused on by Kojima himself as the true iterations. I’m very excited to get my hands on Peace Walker and see what he’s done for Snake and Co.
