“It seems the gameplay portions of the trailer are quite popular. The ability to slice everything is a refreshing feature, and the playable cutscenes are well received too. People have been comparing it to Ninja Gaiden, but at least Ninja Gaiden 3 was a shitty game that cannot be helped. I don’t want it to be compared to that.”
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance’s producer, Atsushi Inaba, drawing the line on comparisons being made between his game and Team Ninja’s ode to unfun.
To be fair, while Platinum Games looks to have a phenomenal hack n’ slash on their hands that will likely transcend genre standards, it still seems like a pretty shitty Metal Gear game. Fans will get to put Revengeance’s asymmetrical war to the test when the Zone of the Enders HD Collection (eventually) releases, as a demo for Mr. Inaba’s efforts will be included. Otherwise, look for Metal Gear Rising early 2013.
