Metal Gear Solid: Rising Is Not Going To Focus On Old Characters
“We don’t really want to refer to and dwell upon the Metal Gear saga so much.” Matsuyama told gamesTM magazine.
Creative producer Shigenobu Matsuyama of Metal Gear Solid: Rising, said that Rising won’t dwell on the history of Metal Gear Solid, so its more accessible for newcomers to the game.
“To answer you question about returning characters, we’re probably not going to show too many characters in Rising because, since it’s a new part of a series, we don’t really want to refer to and dwell upon the Metal Gear saga so much.” Matsuyama told gamesTM magazine.
“We want newcomers to the game to come in and play freely without needing to know and understand the background of the whole Metal Gear Solid universe,” he added. “We don’t want to have it all tied up with the story from MGS2 or MGS4 and make it too complicated.”
Maybe we could see another repeater of MGS2, but who knows.
Metal Gear Solid: Rising is scheduled for a 2011 release on Xbox 360 & PS3.
