Metal Gear Rising Director Wants to Develop a ‘Kill La Kill’ Game
Kenji Saito is currently wrapping up development on the G1-style Transformers: Devastation third-person action game, but with it set to launch in a couple of months, fans are wondering what he's going to do next. Saito, known for helming the Raiden-filled slasher Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, would like to tackle one of his favorite anime series (courtesy of Polygon).
When asked by a fan on Twitter if he'd be willing to direct a game based off of the popular Gatchaman anime franchise or the Karas OVA series, Saito had his own animated series that he'd love to convert into a third-person action game: Kill La Kill and Berserk.
We should note that Platinum Games' Hideki Kamiya has been rather vocal about his desire to developer a Star Fox game in the past. Surprisingly, Nintendo hired Platinum Games to help developer Star Fox Zero after they made that awesome sequence in Bayonetta 2.
Berserk is a popular manga and anime series that follows Guts, who hunts the demonic Apostles, which are humans who made a deal with an archdemon for otherworldly powers. Kill La Kill is by the makers of Gurren Lagann that is about Ryuko Matoi joining a militarized academy where certain school uniforms can grant you special powers. Matoi joins the school in order to find the person responsible for murdering her father.
A Platinum Games third-person slasher based on Kill La Kill or Berserk? We'd love to play either one.
