The creator behind the Metal Gear Solid franchise has heaped praise on the recent debut gameplay trailer for Grand Theft Auto V.
Writing on Twitter, Hideo Kojima admitted that his studio’s upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain wouldn’t be able to reach the same level of freedom as Rockstar’s crime romp.
“’GTA V’ new trailer was awesome! This free control is future of the game, way higher than anywhere, makes me depress as a matter fact,” he said.
“I don’t think our ‘V’ can reach that level. Rockstar’s team are the best. W/o question they will pull up the possibility of game.”
Kojima-san is of course referring to the fact MGSV is the first entry in the celebrated stealth-‘em-up series to be set in an open world. The game is due out on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and next-generation consoles.
GTA V is scheduled for release on September 17 on PS3 and Xbox 360.
