Almost every shooter today has a online Multiplayer component, but Shinji Mikami doesn’t it would be a fun experience in Vanquish.
Mikami spoke with Eurogamer about the lack of multiplayer. “Vanquish is very intense, full of action. There are just so many things going on. When you take that into a multiplayer environment, then you have to realistically consider shaving a lot of things off and putting them into your multiplayer environment.”
I’m honestly all for not forcing Multiplayer into a game if it doesn’t belong, but I think for a lot of people that is a major contributor in deciding whether to buy or a rent a title.
On the bright side though for PlayStation 3 users, the game is being developed with the PlayStation 3 in mind first, unlike Bayonetta. Platnium Games is handling development on both versions this time around, so the gap between the two versions are likely to be smaller.
