Metal Gear Solid Creator Says Collectors' Edition of Next Game Will Add Ten Additional Minutes to Its One Hour of Actual Gameplay
He calls this "an extra value gift for his fans." The game's duration is expected to be about twenty hours - nineteen hours worth of cutscenes, with about one hour of actual gameplay.
"Since the creation of my Metal Gear Solid series, I have never put style before substance. So it naturally figures that I would never put gameplay before story."
The special Edition of MGS: Rising will include the chapter "Raiden Gets To Actually Fight For Ten Minutes", a nonstop gameplay sequence with no cutscenes or Quick Time Events.
"It's a radical departure for my series, which might change the way people look at the series," Mr. Kojima comments. "But I figure the fans are worth it."
In related news - IGN, Gamespot, and Playstation Universe have confirmed they will be giving a 10 out of 10 rating to MGS: Rising in their upcoming reviews.
