In the latest Kojima Productions Report podcast, number 158, the team’s staff members answered some questions sent in by listeners.
One of them was about the PlayStation Vita version for Metal Gear Solid 3, and how it will compare to the 3DS version. The latter one has some new features, such as crouch walking as it is known from MGS4. The Kojima Productions staff members answered that the Vita version won’t have these changes that were made to the 3DS version.
The reason behind this is that MGS3D Snake Eater is meant to do something new, and reach a new audience that may not be familiar with the series, so they chose to include a more modern control scheme, whereas the PS Vita version is more aimed at the fans and is about bringing the classics to the system.
Another question sent in by a listener was about Metal Gear Rising Revengeance, and when we can expect some new information regarding the game. The staff answered that they couldn’t reveal anything right now, but that there would be a lot of new information soon, leading up to E3. They mentioned that the info doesn’t necessarily have to come from them, and that they have some ‘very big things planned’.
It is likely that it has something to do with the new details promised by Play magazine, and that there is an embargo that will be lifted somewhere this month.
