Metal Gear Rising director: 'I want to make a Kill La Kill or Berserk game'

It was just a few short weeks ago at E3 when we first learned that the next project from Platinum Games' Kenji Saito would be a full-fledged Transformers action game called Transformers: Devastation. But with Transformers expected out in just a few months, one might wonder: What's next for the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance director?

If Saito has any say in the matter, his next title could be Platinum's first foray into games based on anime. Asked by a fan if he'd be interested in making a game based off the Gatchaman franchise or Tatsunoko's Karas OVA, he instead replied:     

That's right: Saito's two frontrunners for anime-turned-games are Trigger Inc.'s 2013 action-comedy series Kill La Kill and the '90s manga Berserk, which is currently undergoing its second anime adaptation at the hands of Studio 4°C.

Whether Saito's desire will ever amount to anything real is anyone's guess — although it's worth noting that Platinum Games designer Hideki Kamiya's well-documented wish for the studio to develop a Star Fox game has come true, so it seems anything's possible.
