Yuji Korekado

Hideo Kojima Yuji Korekado recently Tweeted photos of the White Raiden Play Arts KAI by Square Enix. This figure is exclusive to the Limited and Premium editions of Metal Gear Rising Revengeance in Japan and the UK. As of now, you can get your hands on this if your pre-order via UK retailers, or by ordering directly from the Konami Style Japan store. Kojima has confirmed that this figure will be available stateside eventually but no dates have been given. Pictures after the jump.

OXM Reports, Kojima Productions creative producer Yuji Korekado has confessed that he was reluctant to relinquish control of the Metal Gear Rising project to Bayonetta developer PlatinumGames, but now feels the handover is for the best.

First conceived in 2008, Rising underwent a troubled development as junior staffers struggled to function in the absence of series creator Hideo Kojima. The project was put on indefinite hold in 2010, only to be reannounced as a collaboration with Platinum in 2011. “When Kojima Productions decided to send the game to Platinum, it was definitely a dark period,” Korekado told OXM. “People had put a lot of effort in, and they were in a dark hole.
