In a series of tweets from his newly minted Twitter account, the MGS boss said… lots of things in Japanese that we don’t understand. Here’s the translation according to CVG: “It’s difficult to show the interest and freshness of PW through video. Cameron’s Avatar was a huge hit because of the 3D video. That can’t be communicated through text and a trailer. It’s something you won’t understand unless you experience it for yourself in the theater.”
He continued, “It’s not that PSP is the main platform for the future MGS series. PW is a test to see what type of expansions are there if MGS is brought to a portable. We’re not just rising vertically with development on next generation systems, but also horizontally, trying to expand gameplay.”
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is set for a May 25 release in the US and May 28 in Europe.
A child of the Spectrum generation, I've been playing games since they came on cassettes and made that screechy loading noise. Now they just make me stare at funny spinny circles. That's progress.
