Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has encouraged gamers to play the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes on PlayStation 4.
Writing on Twitter (via GamingBolt), the celebrated game designer saids that while the stealth-action title is due out on multiple platforms, he’s eager for players to experience Snake’s latest outing on Sony’s new hardware.
“At the end of next month PS4, the long awaited next generation console will be released in Japan. Ground Zeroes will also be released at the end of the month after that. Ground Zeroes will also be launch on current generation consoles, but I want you to play on PS4 if possible," said Kojima-san.
“I was talking in an interview overseas and they told me: ‘Next generation console? Here PS4 and ONE are already current generation.’”
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is a precursor title to the forthcoming Phantom Pain, and takes place shortly after the events of MGS: Peace Walker. Here, we find Big Boss (aka Snake) infiltrating a base in Afghanistan in the series’ first attempt at an open-world experience.
Ground Zeroes is due out in March.
