Sad news for PS Vita owners who wanted some of that watermelon slashing action in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, looks like the game won’t be possible on the portable console.
Speaking with Eurogamer at Gamescom the game’s creative producer Yuji Korekado from Kojima Productions explained:
As of now we aren’t considering a Vita version. The reason is one of the main appeals of Metal Gear Rising is this option of the free cut.
That requires a lot of hardware power, which is only possible with the power of a PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. So as of now, we haven’t contemplated bringing it to handheld consoles,
If you haven’t been following up on the game, Rising features free cut blade mode allowing Raiden to slash through anything except building. Rendering so many ‘diceable’ items on screen at once could prove to be very hard for the Vita.
