Atsushi Inaba has commented on 5 hour rumour

It seems someone posted their MGR results screen and that people (mainly in the West) are shocked it says the clear time is 5.5hr.

Here's the truth: First of all, cutscenes ARE NOT INCLUDED in that counter.

Next: For every chapter you play in the game, it ONLY COUNTS YOUR FASTEST TIME. It doesn't track your total play time

What that means is if you replay a chapter for 10 hours, but you finally clear it in a time of 10 mins. Only 10 mins will be counted.

So please don't get fixated on that end screen Clear Time being total game time because it is not.

As I said, it is not how long you've had the power on playing MGR, it is a record of your best efforts playing the game.

We came up with this clear time counting system as a way to fairly evaluate players. It hasn't changed since Bayonetta.

However, I will say it is really disappointing that people try to use a single screen in the game to try and create negative buzz.

Edit: Here's a source for people that will ***** at me for not providing it and are too lazy to search it themselves.

Amazing...great news. You're on the verge of practically creating a pseudo kind of world peace on this board.

So with cutscenes thats about 7 hours of total game time.

And if the guy that posted that screen only played each chapter once, ie thats his slowest time, then 5 hours is still very short.

And he confirmed thats the end game screen.

He also bashes us 'western' people.

Damage control. Short game is short.

So basically, there's no way he finished in 5 hours?
