Interview reveals some secrets behind MGS: Portable Ops



1UP has chatted with the people behind the upcoming Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops and there are a few bullet points that are pretty juicy. [Andrew's note: I'm typing this while Sony continues to not say anything interesting in their press conference.]

  • The classic Kurosawa film Seven Samurai is the inspiration behind your newfound ability to recruit friends in the game.
  • The unique character generated through multiplayer is determined by the IP address of the hotspot you connect to.
  • The characters obviously feature unique attributes. Unsurprisingly, Snake will not be the best character to play as in the game. He's very recognizable, as he's gained quite a bit of infamy by this point in this story.
  • The game is being developed by the same team as Metal Gear Acid, for better or worse.
