Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was a new take on the series by Platinum Games, featuring their signature combat and attention to flashy, spectacular moves and visuals.
When a fan asked Kenji Saito (the director of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance) if he could make a Gatchaman or a KARAS game, the creator responded with something that probably threw his PR staff into a fit:
“I want to make the KillLaKill or Berserk.”
So while this isn’t indicative of anything Platinum Games have in development (as they have their hands full with co-developing multiple games), it’s certainly interesting to see that Saito would name two very adult and or brutal series to base a game off of.
I for one would love to see a proper Berserk game adaptation, filled with bloody and rewarding combat (and hopefully a good adaptation of the story).
We’ll keep you guys posted – and if you haven’t watched or read either series, I highly recommend both.
