Kojima: "I Gotta Start Thinking About Metal Gear Solid 5"

PSX Extreme says:

At this point, Metal Gear Solid 5 will probably happen (even if it is without Snake). Franchise creator Hideo Kojima has now said it himself during an interview with Famitsu:

"I gotta start thinking about MGS5... Even though, well, Snake's story ends in MGS4. ...About MGS5, that would be something that Kojima Productions would have to make, I think."

The story is too old to be commented.

Well I want him to be in charge again. Metal Gear won't be the same without Hideo Kojima.

meepmoopmeep3665d ago (Edited 3665d ago )

the KP team will be fine. they've been working on the MGS Saga for a long time, they just won't have him as a director so the quality might go down, or it might stay on par with MGS4, who knows.

it'll be hard to top the original story, hopefully it'll be a prequel about Raiden or the Big Boss & Zero days.

I just hope Kojima pops in from time to time to see how it's coming along.

Tommy Vercetti3665d ago

I agree. Metal Gear Solid will always be a great series. Does anybody else want to know what else Kojima could create?

thor3665d ago

I think we can let ol' Kojima have a rest after this one - I don't think he really deserves any more death threats D:

Dark General3665d ago

To take a rest. He just hammered out a great game wrapping up the entire saga of solid snake. I think it's time for him to move on to a different franchise for the time being. Let he creative legs have a stretch and a nice jog.

Megaton3665d ago (Edited 3665d ago )

I wouldn't want anyone else to do it.

I have no idea what they could do if they're moving forward beyond MGS4. It pretty much closed the book on all past storylines. I suppose they could move forward with Raiden, or do a prequel about what he was doing between MGS2 and MGS4, but I still don't think he's popular enough for them to justify giving him his own game again, especially after the backlash from MGS2. Personally, I'd rather play as The Boss if they went down a prequel route.

On the other hand, given the fact that MGS4 far exceeded my expectations and really ended the series properly, I wouldn't mind if they never made another one ever again. Going out on top after MGS4 would be pretty tough.

thesummerofgeorge3665d ago

I'm glad he's gonna be involved with MGS5, if it weren't for him pushing the limits, MGS4 wouldn't have been the same, if you've seen the "making of" bluray you know what I mean. He's a visionary.

meepmoopmeep3665d ago

yeah, i'd like to see what other cool new stuff he has in that twisted head of his

Jack Meahoffer3665d ago (Edited 3665d ago )

And honestly this is starting to be like JayZ or Michael Jordan retiring here. How many "final game in the series" will there be wasn't MSG2 supposed to be the end originally?

I just finished MSG4 last night and there is no question its one of the best games ever made. Presentation is amazing. Loved the story and I'm a noob haven't played since Metal Gear on NES. I wouldn't want to see them just milk the series. If Kojima-san isn't right at the middle of development its auto fail. At some point everything turns into Police Academy 5. Just beating a dead horse 95% of the original people gone.

I'd like to see maybe a reboot. Remake the original or something. I don't know. I thought the ending was amazing and just don't want to see it diminished in some way. Even the Raiden thing people suggest I don't see how it could be done in a good way that still honors MSG4.

NO_PUDding3665d ago

Raiden had a lot of work done to him, to appear redeemable.


I think we should play him in his epiphanic journey between 2009 and 2014. I would love to learn scouting techniques from Alaskan Tribes, and find soemthign for Matka Pluku, and become ultimately an awesome Irving swining ninja.

Palodios3665d ago

Well, first of all, I think metal gear solid should end at 4..... Hold on a minute I'm not done. I think just as metal gear turned to metal gear solid, mgs should become something else. Snake, is, was, and will always be the man. But we all know that when he's in the shape he's in, well, we don't want to see him like that. I don't know what could be done for more prequels, but I'd personally like to see the series move forward, not back. It looks like Raiden and Johnny are being made into the new heroes, and quite frankly, I wouldn't mind a game being made about either of them after the ridiculous turnaround that both of them made by the end of the game.

BkaY3665d ago

KOJIMA FTW............


liquidsnake3664d ago

I think they should stop it right here and never make a MGS game again. That's only couse Im a pure hardcore MGS fan and would hate to see a game without Solid Snake or any other MG/MGS character involved in a new game.

All I whan't now is remakes of MG and MG2 with the MGS4 engine and voice acting!

to play as Raiden during his 10 year or so disappearance.

EDIT: apparently 5 years. And yes I played the games. lol the story isn't exactly easy to keep total track of.

BananaSlug3665d ago (Edited 3665d ago )

he was gone for 5 years

[edit response] But Raiden showed up in mgs2 which is after mgs1. and you know that mgs4 is 9 years after mgs1. =)

kewlkat0073665d ago (Edited 3665d ago )


Edit: Good cause I didn't even know who Raiden was till I played this game.

OgTheClever3665d ago

Yeah, shopping for Sunny at Area 51.

Voozi3665d ago

Yea I would love a metal gear game based off the time between MGS2 and MGS4 revolved around Raiden's story. Since I mean the story after MGS4 is pretty much wrapped up and I cant see them further extending it out without deteriorating the quality of such a story line.

AllroundGamer3665d ago (Edited 3665d ago )

why? can't you imagine Johnny and Meryl on their honeymoon? on a cruise ship? with a bomb on it? and the ship can't go too slow otherwise it will explode?... whoa major flashback ;)

fenderputty3665d ago

That's what I'm saying man. What's left in the realm of MGS to make a game about. Nothing after the game would really work. MGS3 served as a prequel to the previous games. The only real blank spot left would be the time spent between two and four.

Kojima is such a genius, I hate that he constantly is tied to doing Metal Gear projects. He can make great stand alone masterpieces - ANY HK fan or gaming fan in general owes it to themselves to play Snatcher or Policenauts.

I love Metal Gear and have followed it for 15 years(I've played the series in order of release since MG1). But please, it has been concluded wonderfully in MGS4. Let it end.

iamtehpwn3665d ago

Wait till PS4 to do another Metal Gear.
I want to see test Kojima with a new IP, personally

Superfragilistic3664d ago

Yeah I agree MGS4 was a beautiful conclusion to an outstanding series, but if he is such a genius I want him to prove it with a masterful new IP out of the shadow of MGS.

Sitris3664d ago

common i mean MGS4 is amazing but unless there gonna blow that game outa the water with MGS5 this gen then i want a new ip that will shake the ps3 in a new direction, still with that Kojima touch though!

PSN ID: Sitris

Commandant3665d ago

MGS3 with MGS4 style, that game would sell unholy amounts...

ThatCanadianGuy3664d ago

He even said on the blu-ray disc thingy,that he originally intended to release MGS3 on PS3,but it was taking to long to launch,so he put it on PS2

I'd love to see Snake eater on PS3
Was the best PS2 game i've ever played.
Plus..I'l like to play as Big Boss again..

DiabloRising3665d ago

Make it a new universe, please. Don't drag out the same storyline. Leave it alone.

Give me a new world to explore!
