Metal Gear Rising producer Atsushi Inaba doesn’t like Ninja Gaiden 3. So he would appreciate it if fans quit comparing it to Metal Gear Rising – because some of them are doing that, apparently.
“It seems the game play portions of the [Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance] trailer are quite popular,” said Inaba in a tweet. “The ability to slice everything is a refreshing feature, and the playable cutscenes are well recieved too. People have been comparing it to Ninja Gaiden, but at least Ninja Gaiden 3 was a shitty game that cannot be helped. I don’t want it to be compared to that.”
Following some fan reaction, Inaba added: “You’re all quick to respond! Since I’m free to say my real opinions, I can be as frank as I want.”
Well! You heard the man. No comparisons.
