Kojima hands MGS: Rising to Shigenobu Matsuyama

MGS legend concentrates on clandestine project

It was announced earlier this week when Hideo Kojima revealed Metal Gear Solid: Rising at Microsoft's press conference that he is no longer the game's producer.

Kojima has stepped back into a supervisory role and allowed Shigenobu Matsuyama to take over as the game's producer.

The MGS creator has distanced himself from MGS: RIsing to concentrate on his top secret HD console project which he teased earlier this year.

Minesh Kimura has been promoted to the directing role and he and Matsuyama presented Metal Gear Solid: Rising to the media at Konami's press conference yesterday.
