Westerners Almost Made Metal Gear Rising

As revealed over the weekend, Konami roped in Bayonetta developers Platinum Games to make Metal Gear Rising, because it couldn't.

Originally, Kojima considered bringing in a Western developer after first planning on cancelling the game in late 2010. But, since this is a ninja game, he ultimately decided a Japanese developer would be the best fit.

The above documentary explains how the whole thing went down. It's twenty-five minutes long. Hey, this is Hideo Kojima! That guy is wordy.
