If you want the latest news concerning Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker , why not go straight to the source for updates?
Hideo Kojima has been Twittering a lot over the past few weeks, and his favorite topic is the upcoming blockbuster for the PSP. Remember, we're talking about a game that could very easily have been dubbed MGS5, and Kojima has said time and time again that it's a "true MGS title." He also says that Rising – the big game set for the PS3 and 360 – will "create new users" but perhaps the most encouraging comments are in regards to "PW." Here's an example:
"The idea of PW sprung from news I saw about 5 years ago. At the time, the President of Costa Rica was supporting the U.S. in the war with Iraq, and a college student took legal action and won stating that the support of war "breaches the constitution" of the country. This was a key hint for me to write a script about a "country without an army" and 'soldiers without borders.'"
"PW is going to be released as a portable game, but it is a TRUE MGS game in the saga, not a spin off. Of course, we have put a lot of power into the story. It should be pretty exciting. The potential of a portable game, an innovative system that changes the nature of future MGs is what makes this a game a title to look forward too."
Although many fans would have liked to have seen Peace Walker release on the PS3, Kojima says they've worked hard to really focus on the pluses of handheld gaming. They also wanted a new challenge, and the PSP definitely provided them with one. If you plan to snag this massively anticipated portable adventure, you should know it'll release in April in Japan and the month after in North America and Europe.
