Platinum Games Director Atsushi Inaba and Kojima Productions Creative Producer Yuki Korekado recently sat down with Siliconera to talk about Metal Gear Rising‘s gameplay mechanics, and the subject of more Metal Gear spin-offs.
In the interview, Korekado touched on how Metal Gear Rising shows that there are still plenty of stories to tell within Metal Gear‘s expansive universe.
“In Rising, we got to see Raiden grow as a character and develop as a person,” Korekado said. “Beyond that, within the Metal Gear universe there are a lot of characters and stories. Within that we were able to show the value of the universe and expand on it. We were able to prove we can create branches to explain more deep stories within the universe.”
Should Kojima Productions be interested in a Metal Gear Rising 2, Inaba says that Platinum Games would “love” to be a part of it.
“I really think I was able to see Raiden grow independently and strong as a character and as a man. To be part of that was an honor. Moving forward, if Kojima Productions feels that another Raiden game is needed I would love to be a part of making Raiden’s next growth.”
If you can’t wait until Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance‘s February release date, a demo is available by way of Zone of the Enders HD Collection. Alternatively, you’ll be able to download a demo straight from PlayStation Network and Xbox Live starting in January.
