Metal Gear Solid, an action game with a story that’s as thin as Taylor Swift’s ass, is going to get a huge improvement. The development team that brought you DmC: Devil May Cry has told us that Tameem Antoniades will be taking the place of the late Hideo Kojima.
“We needed a young experienced developer who understands what’s acceptable, and what’s not in todays society.” said CEO of Konami; Takuya Kozuki. “We needed someone who was willing to create a faithful adaptation to the Metal Gear Solid franchise. It was clear from their masterful performance on DmC: Devil May Cry, That Ninja Theory is the best developer for this type of project.” Ninja Theory has also told us that Metal Gear Solid 6: From Two Phantoms will take place after MGS4 with Snake being much more refined in both design and how he acts.
Ninja Theory is determined to to put a more modern spin on Metal Gear Solid 6: From Two Phantoms, with proud ass kicking female companions and gameplay made more accessible.
The gameplay is a more realistic take on the Metal Gear Solid formula. Taking away such things as cardboard boxes and Cyborg Ninja’s and replacing them with a more intuitive and immersive mechanics for today’s common gamer. “No one wants this dumb shit anymore, they want characters that female gamers can relate too.” said Rahni Tucker. “We’re making Metal Gear Solid 6: From Two Phantoms for the players, not the gamers.” A bold move, but one worth taking.
“For all the praise we get, we do admit that DmC: Devil May Cry is by no means the perfect game.” said Tameem Antoniades; “Our female representation was laughable, so we’ve taken this serious feedback and used it to improve ourselves as game developers.” In the end it all boils down to NInja Theory’s creative eye – and looking at the results, I think it’s safe to say they’re doing a good job.
