Metal Gear Solid mastermind Hideo Kojima has labeled the upcoming PSP entry Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker as “an MGS5-class game,” and revealed that fans can expect a meaty gameplay experience from the Cold War-era stealth-action outing.
Speaking in a Q&A session, Kojima stated, “This game is an MGS5-class game. I am supervising, designing, producing, directing, and editing this title together with the MGS4 team.”
"The story can be replayed numerous times and the game is full of challenges to complete, so I feel that this title will really satisfy players with its long-lasting play time," he continued.
Fans of Snake’s iconic cardboard box antics will also have plenty to relish in this time around from the sound of things, with Kojima adding: "Just as an example, do you recall the cardboard box at the end of the Peace Walker trailer? In addition to that two-man box, we are preparing a variety of other different cardboard boxes this time around."
He also revealed that the game will feature an unspecified ‘growth’ system, though neglected to divulge any concrete details on the subject. "Being able to make decisions and plot a strategy will be one of the really enjoyable features of this title," said Kojima.
"We are also working on a ‘growth feature’ as well, where your character evolves. It will be a new type of system, so I hope everyone will look forward to it!"
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is due for release exclusively on PSP in 2010.
