Peace Walker Will Have PSP Purchase Inducing Surprise

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has something up his sleeve. We believe it's his arm. But he does tell Japanese game magazine that he has a surprise in store for Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

Just as Kojima explained to Kotaku at this year's Tokyo Game Show, he going to great lengths for Peace Walker, giving it the attention and effort the title deserves.

The game's script is as thick as Metal Gear Solid 4's. But there's something else Kojima has in store. What? He wouldn't say.

"I'm putting everything I want to do on a portable console into this game," Kojima told Famitsu. "I haven't announced this yet, but there's another feature in here that will surprise people, to the point where they'll want to go out and buy a PSP right now!"

Kojima also discussed other Peace Walker features like interactive 2D cutscenes. "For example," art director Yoji Shinkawa says, "if you zoom in on the scene where you first meet Paz, you can see the uniform she has on under her coat, and then what's under that." Besides this, voice interactivity appears to be planned with the inclusion of Vocaloid software.

Wonder what this surprise is... Oh, and Kojima-san doesn't have to make Metal Gear anymore. Well, starting after Peace Walker, that is.
