Metal Gear series creator Hideo Kojima is currently testing if remote play on the PlayStation Vita is a possibility for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain.
“We’re still trying to put together how much we can fit into the next game,” Kojima told the PlayStation Blog. “We’re running tests, and Remote Play is impressive and I like it. So we’re running tests and still working on the game.”
Sony has been pushing the remote play feature on all of its PlayStation 4 titles. The feature allows you to take the game from the big screen on to your Vita and then continue playing on the go. While Kojima hasn’t actually confirmed to include support for remote play in the game, there’s a high chance that we’ll still end up getting it.
The developer also revealed recently that he isn’t really ‘that’ interested in taking advantage of the DualShock 4’s new features. In fact he wants the game experience to be not too different compared to the PlayStation 3 version.
“We are trying to take advantage of as many things as we can, but we also want to focus on keeping the experience as close as possible on both platforms, between PS3 and PS4,” Kojima said. “More than that, I would recommend that people who are looking forward to the next generation having a tablet next to them, taking advantage of those capabilities. I think there are things that people will enjoy there.”
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes launches for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One in spring 2014. No release date has been set for The Phantom Pain.
