A recent IGN interview featured none other than famous Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima. In the interview he says that Metal Gear Solid 4 has been made for those who followed the series the past decade.
â€œItâ€™s been ten years since Metal Gear Solid was released in the US for the first time,â€ said the Metal Gear Solid developer. â€œPeople who are experiencing Metal Gear Solid for the first time will enjoy it, but it also adds more enjoyment to the people who have followed MGS for ten years, because you can always look back and think about what you were doing ten years ago, or five years ago, and look back to your life, to yourself.
â€œI want people to play MGS4 and feel what they were doing ten years ago, or four years agoâ€¦ Iâ€™ve chucked all those elements in there, so you could look back to your life, to yourself, so that you can absorb that and go beyond that in the future as well. Thatâ€™s the part where I emphasise it is for the users. It is for the people who love the Metal Gear series.â€
He added: â€œWe finally finished creating the game, and also we got assurance that we can release the game simultaneously worldwide. Thatâ€™s why overall I said Iâ€™m relieved not. But also Iâ€™m kind of excited and nervous and how [the game will] be perceived.â€
They also speak about including things such as the iPod in the game as well as the Assassin’s Creed costume. View the interview at the jump. [VG247]
