MGS: Peacewalker up to MGS5 standard

Cuz Kojima says so, that's why

Hideo Kojima has been talking up the PSP exclusive Metal Gear Solid: Peacewalker in a Q&A released by Konami today.

"This game is an MGS5-class game. I am supervising, designing, producing, directing, and editing this title together with the MGS4 team," he said.

"The story can be replayed numerous times and the game is full of challenges to complete, so I feel that this title will really satisfy players with its long-lasting play time,

"Just as an example, do you recall the cardboard box at the end of the Peace Walker trailer? In addition to that two-man box, we are preparing a variety of other different cardboard boxes this time around."

We always welcome news of new cardboard boxes in MGS round these parts

Additionally, Snake can be given a custom loadout at the start of each mission, which will have an affect on how events pan out in the field.

"Being able to make decisions and plot a strategy will be one of the really enjoyable features of this title," Kojima-san stated. "We are also working on a 'growth feature' as well, where your character evolves. It will be a new type of system, so I hope everyone will look forward to it!"

Oh, but we are Mr. Kojima!

There are also rumours that Peacewalker will feature a multiplayer element.

Consider yourself up to speed.
