Metal Gear Rising PC version "looking good" says Kojima

Hideo Kojima enthusiastic about PC version of action game; no release date announced.

by

The PC version of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is "looking good," series creator Hideo Kojima said in a tweet today (via Siliconera).

Developed by Kojima Productions and Platinum Games, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance for PC is described as the "full game." It will run at 60 frames-per-second on PC, though no other PC-specific features have been announced.

The PC version is due out "soon," Konami said in June.

Konami may have more than a PC version of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance in store, as the publisher launched an online survey in August asking fans if they would like to see a sequel.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance launched for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in February.

Great news! While I wasn't a big fan of the DS releases, I still remember being addicted to the original Gameboy titles (Kirby's Dream Land 2 being my favorite). I'll surely try this one too!

Kind of disappointing, after seeing how creative Epic Yarn and Canvas Curse were. This just looks stale by comparison.

I remember playing Kirby Super Star Ultra on the DS with some friends good times

I know that this isn't it, but I'd sure like another iteration of Kirby's Dream Course.

Been waiting for a 3DS Kirby!

The 3DS is swimming in software, Got Zelda, Pokemon and a Super Smash Bros. coming, gaming nirvana to me.

This really isn't news. This was pretty much expected to happen.

Damn, 3DS has shitton of games, so why not make another?

And Wii U is dying, and they pushed DK:TF, by which I'm not surprised at all, because of all the releases coming, but why not make classic Kirby game with awesome HD graphics?

Good, Kirby doesn't need more of those borig gimmick titles like Epic Yarn.  Stand up and be proud of regular Kirby being Kirby.

Yay! I loved Kirby Mass Attack on the DS so I'm going to be picking this up.

I can't play this in public! I'm a grown man!

... I'll probably just play it at home 3:

Finally! An original Kirby game for the 3DS!

Now Nintendo we just need a new Starfox game for 3DS and a Metroid game. Preferable a 2D or 2.5D Metroid game similar to the NES, SNES, and GBA games.

Revealing this game put a big smile on my face, oh how I love Kirby games ^_^

Kirby the original Pokemon! actually my friends and I used to debate that all the time. I'd like this game on the Wii U or a 3DS player for the Wii U so I can play 3DS games on the Wii U.

My 4 year old loves Kirby. When he's old enough to have a handheld, he'll love this. I'll more than likely get it on release. I've got a soft spot for Kirby games.

I wish there was one for the Wii U also

This is the best news I've heard in days. Kirby games are pure digital joy.

To be fair, it does take a lot more effort and time to develop Wii U games than 3DS games.

@PStrife While Epic Yarn I thought was a little too easy, I thought it was one of the best titles I had played that year. Why the hate?

@PStrife 

Epic Yarn was easily one of the best examples of art design being incorporated into gameplay. The fact that it won a few "Best Graphics" award shows that.

1. Kirby is not made by Game Freak, he was created by the R&D at HAL Labs.

2. Kirby is not a Pokemon.

3. Kirby exist way before any Pokemon.

4. Kirby is the fifth main mascot of Nintendo behind Mario, Link, Samus, and Donkey Kong.

5. The Kirby series is the fourth main IP of Nintendo behind Super Mario, The Legend of Zelda, and Pokemon.

6. Believe me people care.

@Evilgenius4u69 Oh that's right.....if it were on any other system this would be a day 1 buy for you.  Too bad, so sad, for you!

As a grown man who sometimes wears a Kirby shirt as well as sporting a Club Nintendo bag with Kirby patches at a middle school, I can honestly say that people don't care what your interests are (as long as they're not inappropriate).

@KFHEWUI Preferably a sequel to Metroid Fusion. I'll tell you right now, Metroid Prime is my all-time favorite game...but I'm kind of tired of exploring stories in the middle of the timeline. I want to see how Samus deals with the Metroid strain and how they can take that to a whole new level. Let's hope.

@freedom01 An original Kirby game might be enough to get me to actually buy a WiiU. 

That or a sequel to Elite Beat Agents.

@abHS4L88 @jaifrecap Also, playing games like Kirby are not just tons of fun, but if you play them on the subway cute chicks will be all about it.  Kirby gives you a way to play a great game and score with hott chicks.
