Kojima Productions would love to work with Platinum to make a sequel to Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, should the original be a success.
“If people like Metal Gear Rising, if the fans who play this game ask for more, that would be awesome,” said producer Yuji Korekado.
For Korekado it’s important that the series remains a collaboration.
“This is a game we definitely couldn't have created at Kojima Productions,” he said. “Also, this is a game Platinum Games couldn't have created on their own.
“We think of this as a product that came from the collaboration of both. We both have our strengths and they were put together. So if we were to create a sequel we definitely want to work in a similar partnership.”
Korekado also discussed the possibility of employing characters beyond Snake and Raiden for new games in the Metal Gear series.
“We believe in the Metal Gear world there are several other characters and settings and other elements that can lead to more projects,” he said.
“If I start saying names and specific characters or elements then people will start thinking we're actually working on those projects, but I believe on Snake's side of course there are many characters how are very interesting.
“Not only that, but also on the enemies' side we believe there are many characters how have potential to be worked on.”
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is out on February 19th, 2013 in North America, February 21st, 2013 in Japan and February 22nd, 2013 in Europe.
