[PA] Kojima Details Metal Gear Solid 5 Plans

post #1 of 17

How did we go from an epic story during World War 2 involving The Boss, and Cobra Unit to Metal Gear Rising: Revengance? Well Hideo Kojima explains it in a mini-documentary for Revengance dropped by Konami last night. Apparently the staff over at Kojima Productions just didn’t think that anything cool could be done with the idea...

Hehe.. at least he's lax about MGS5.. More likely to turn out better than it would if it was rushed with publisher deadlines.

I'm really looking forward to it myself (if the avatar hasn't tipped you off tongue.gif). Metal Gear deals with so much more than just stealth and espionage and I'm glad it's finally being explored with its own game. Sure, it's over the top (more so than even MGS4), but not to the point where it's somehow poisonous to the main series.

It's a spin-off and I'm treating it as such. It looks fun, it's definitely going to be fun with Platinum Games developing, it has legitimate connections to the Metal Gear universe (and Kojima Productions is still handling the game's story) and Kojima himself is very excited for the game.

RESISTANCE TO THAT IDEA! What the hell is going on over there? If your Hideo Kojima why do you even need to pitch an idea to your team, you’re the ******* boss! If anyone resists you chop off a pinky, Yakuza style *****!

Hahahaha best sentence of the whole article xD

Pretty ridiculous. Kojima should have been handing people pink-slips if they couldn't manage. If his original team was involved and not the "new" team, I doubt this would have happened. And the whole animation sequences.... complete slap in the face to Yoji Shinkawa. While he did have a couple of over-the-top scenes through out the MGS series, Platinum is bastardizing it.

The only thing that's ridiculous here is the rabid "fans" of the series blowing this whole thing way out of proportion, making it out to be the end of the world when it's really nothing of the sort. It's a spin-off that's supposedly not even canon, featuring a different style of play (as most spin-offs do).

It's not Metal Gear Solid 6, it was never meant to be MGS6. It has no impact on the Solid series whatsoever. Kojima handed it over to Platinum Games hoping to bring a new experience to the series, to make Metal Gear more than what it has been. They came back to him a few months later with a build of the game's current incarnation and he gave it the green-light.

Where some fans are crying the destruction of Metal Gear, the man that's spent 25 years (half) of his life creating this series is embracing this change (change that won't even be applied to the series proper); is excited about it enough to go through the trouble of reviving a dead project just to bring you the game that Rising is today. If he's confident that the integrity of his life's work is not in danger, don't you think you might be overreacting just a little bit?

Wow!!! This is one of the most thought out and intelligent posts I've seen here in a while! Kudos to you sir!

Also, I agree with you wholeheartedly! I think people are blowing this way out of proportion. Somehow, people are seeing Metal Gear in the name and are wanting this to be Metal Gear Solid 5(or 6) which it is not! This is a complete spin-off of the series that just happens to feature one of it's characters.

There is no reason to complain seeing as this is not part of the main series. If it was, then maybe some complaints would be legitimate. Also, looking at the trailer, how does this game not look fun?! Honestly, I felt like the original Rising wasn't going to cut it. Just from the little bit of game play they did show it didn't look very fun. I think that's what Kojima's team had issues with and thus that's why they turned it over to Platinum Games.
