Kojima Productions is teasing new Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance information for release next week.
During Kojima Productions Report #159, the studio’s staff touched a bit on the Raiden-centered release, which hasn’t seen spotlight since its Video Game Awards re-reveal in December.
“We will be revealing more very soon,” teased the staff when quizzed by a listener. “Maybe… next week, possibly?”
On what the new details would include, it added: ”We will delve more into the gameplay and what you can expect. Keep your eyes open over the next few weeks, you’ll be seeing a lot interesting things, and hopefully it’ll get you excited leading up to E3. Needless to say, we’re not doing this [the production of the game] half-assed.”
Metal Gear Rising, now in development at PlatinumGames, received mix responses after its re-reveal. However, Kojima Productions is confident that as more is shown, more will take a liking to it.
“As we release more information, I think more people will come around. What we showed at VGAs was just the first reveal. Really we didn’t show much.”
In regards to the old version of the game – meaning, what was created before Platinum came in and pulled off a complete overhaul – the staff said it could still be used in the future.
“It had a lot of cool ideas (…). From our perspective, that story still exists. We didn’t abandon that story. It’s on a shelf right now, we may revisit it at some point in the future, there’s always that possibility. (…) We’re not throwing it away.”
