Kojima posted some comments about the two years Metal Gear Rising development and studios collaboration with Platinum. Overall, he is more than happy about the result and he thinks MGR is an Invention! Here're his comments:
"About 2 yrs ago, our "free slash" game development enfaced stifling. Being not able to give up, I asked Platinum Games for their dev support. It was almost gambling for them but they took our request. And they kept both schedule and quality and brought about brand new fantastic game. Nothing can make me happier.!"
"Video game was born about 30 yrs from now. That was the shooting game to press the button to eliminate enemies who are coming to you front. The basic action hasn't change since while it evolved into FPS, physics inclusion, or Open World. But RISING is not shooting game but slashing anywhere freely."
"After studying physics of "free slashing" in Koji Pro, it was easily implemented in our lab. However my sons with my gene (GENE) in my team could not bring about unprecedented game with the use of such mechanism while not blood related Platinum Games inherited my MEME and accomplished successfully."
