Has Kojima finally LOST HIS DAMN MIND!?
Earlier this morning, Hideo Kojima, famed creator /director /producer /whateverhewantstobecalled-er, tweeted a picture of the Metal Gear Rising demo he’s trying out, saying, “METAL GEAR RISING’s demo. Title screen with Black Raiden. The arm of White Raiden.”
Wait. What? ‘The arm of White Raiden.’ What the hell is that? Hold on, I’ve got it! It’s a new arm peripheral created for use with Kinect; simply pick up the arm and wave it around to control the game’s menu, adjust settings, and just generally feel like a badass holding a disembodied arm. Next, lay down said arm, pick up a controller and play the game! Oh, and maybe slash stuff with it, à la Fruit Ninja.
Of course, I’m kidding. It’s most likely just some prop that Kojima decided to stick in the picture before tweeting it… but still, you have to wonder…
Also… Black Raiden and White Raiden? Yet another enigma wrapped in a riddle wrapped in Kojima’s boxer shorts. Guess we’ll have to wait and see what that means.
