quote IGN.comSourceUS, September 23, 2009 - Hideo Kojima has provided some strong hints that Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker might as well be called Metal Gear Solid 5. But in case you doubted him, you need only see this week's Famitsu, which shared the cast of characters.
Peace Walker looks like it has a huge cast, with familiar and not-so-familiar names. Here's the list of characters that appear in this week's issue:
Konami has been a bit shy in sharing story details, and that hasn't changed even with this week's Famitsu. The magazine did manage to show a few event screenshots, though, and also pointed out that the game's cut scenes will mix in computer visuals with illustrations from both Yoji Shinkawa and Ashley Wood. It seems that the illustrations aren't just static, though. Hopefully the upcoming Tokyo Game Show trailer will provide a glimpse!
The magazine also shared details on some of the game's cooperative play mechanics. When playing co-op, you'll encounter two particular phrases: Co-op In and Snake-In.
Co-op In is a state that two players enter when their characters reach a certain proximity to one-another. While in this state, your life gauges are shared. You can also trade weapons and equipment.
Snake In is a state you reach when your characters get even closer. You're given the ability to change into Snake Formation, which ties your characters together. One character controls movement for the entire group, allowing the other players to concentrate on other things, like shooting for instance.
It looks like the staff at Kojima Productions are coming up with some unique systems to make Peace Walker's cooperative play special. We'll hopefully get a closer look at these systems in the game's Tokyo Game Show demo tomorrow, so be sure and check back!
