Kombo Reports: "Please look to your right. See that image? Well, apparently that silhouette is a character from Kojima's next game. "
or Max Savage from Snake's dream in MGS3?
I'm hyped. E3 is going to be great. Maybe even better than the E3 where Mario 64 was announced.
Kojima's next game hinted on an official PlayStation magazine? Bu...bu...but....
A Sony magazine with first pics, Japanese magazines listing it for PS3/PSP... Much of what I believe about Kojima will change if he goes multi-plat, and so far the signs are not disappointing me. 12 P.S. Looks like poster "duh duh duh" has solved the riddle, and it's kind of a let-down.
This is soooo easy!! You play as teenage Snake in High School. Metal Gear negative 1. The title is so far back in Snakes history that it is pre zero! :)
I'm going with castlevania.
Are you all blind? It's the Master Chief. DUH!
Two things. 1. Koji Igarashi makes the Castlevania games for Konami. 2. Kojima Productions are not developing Lord of Shadows. It is quite interesting however, knowing that two PlayStation magazines already know what it is he's working on (Famitsu and PSW), and they've got cover stories for the game, which automatically confirms that his next game will be available for the PS3.
it's the new Castlevania game. just look at the clothes. Only reason not to think this is that Cv for the PS3 was announced a long time ago and this is supposed to be something unannounced.
It looks like Lord of Shadow if anything.Almost identical silouhettes
Raiden (MGS2 skin)
The wait, it kills...:o
It looks like it''s Lord of Shadows - it's a multiplatform game for PS3 and Xbox 360. Here is this pic from Lord of Shadow: http://gamelosofy.com/wp-co... Now look at the silhouette in this picture: http://i641.photobucket.com... They seem to match up. Here is the link where the game was announced during GC 2008 http://gamelosofy.com/gc-20... Here is more info on the game: http://www.hiphopgamershow....
we are not worthy, bubbles
Your post is too intelligent for the open zone, bud. 12
Lord of Shadows isn't being made by Kojima Productions though, is it? Do you think PSW put that image there just to build hype?
why would Kojima announce a game that has already been announced? if Koj was working on Lord Of Shadows, we would have known about it when it was announced... sorry bro.. the models do match-up, but your theory still fails EDIT: rudeness? lol... sorry sire, how rude of me to say "fail" on the internet.. excuse my ignorance
Maybe this is one of Kojima's games. While I think the current announcement in the PSw magazine is geared towards Lord of Shadows, I think that he is maybe involved in a more overseer type role. I think the current countdown clock is related to MGS5 still. So, irregardless of your rudeness, I think we may be on to something.
I think your right @duhduhduh when you visit Konami's website for Lord of Shadows http://www.lordsofshadow.co... it says "lordsofshadow.com coming soon " not sure if that old or new but anyway, only time will tell can't wait to know :((
I think you are right. Good catch.
Good going lord of shadows. +bubbles. You know your stuff :)
Lol, you might've figured it out.
Joo solved et! o.o
take a look at the first open zone comment. hes got it right
Argh...I think you're right. 12
you provided does appear to be strikingly close to the silhouette above. If you turn out to be correct, I would be very excited to see what Kojima could do with a God of War style of game. I'm sort of pulling for this to be a new IP, but we will find out soon for sure.
That actually looks spot on. My only problem with this is if it has been announced, why are they treating it like no one has ever heard of it before?
I'll point out again for people who don't venture into the Open Zone. Kojima Productions aren't making Lord of Shadows, Mercury Steam (who made Clive Barker's Jericho) are.
Agreed. Maybe this is one of Kojima's games. While I think the current announcement in the PSW magazine is geared towards Lord of Shadows, I think that he is maybe involved in a more overseer type role. I think the current countdown clock is related to MGS5 still.
You know he's right. it actually really looks the same.
that you are correct sir. Take a look at the right elbow (it is on our left), that part that sticks out. in the pictures below I have circled what I am talking about.
Thanks for confirmation. Only one agree on my original post?! LOL. How many people want to bet that websites will not fail to source me as the originator of this information? Anybody want to fight for my crusade in being linked as a true source? I am at work and cannot monitor all of the websites who may now use this info and claim it as their own.
The problem is that Lord of Shadow is developed by MercurySteam ( http://company.mercurysteam... ), which made Clive Barker's Jericho, but the silhouette is indeed Lord of Shadow (and i will prove it later).
Kojima has said he is working on two different games before. This could possibly be one of them with Metal Gear Solid/Raiden 5 being the other. That is my current theory. Thank you all for the bubbles.
Side by side comparison showing a few similarities. http://i43.tinypic.com/n2es... I agree with the folks saying that this could be the other game they're working on. I don't think that countdown is for this game. Edit: Lord of Shadow has it's own countdown site when you type the name into Google. :P
Well it was the first thing I noticed... but suere, more of ya did. Just transformed the silhouette in photoshop for the sake of correcting the perspective from where the photo of the magazine was taken. It just makes it more similar: http://i624.photobucket.com... and sure, spotted out the similarities. The guy who redrew the silhouette in curves surely mistook that spike on the gate for a piece of the armor. Anyways, it seems pretty obvious.
stop teasing us mere mortals Hideo.
Look very closely. It's a revolver, not a knife. Ocelot anyone?
Kojima game info? in a PS mag? bu..bu....bu MOOKS AND PP SAID IT WOULD BE 360 EXCLUSIVE!!!!!!! WAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!
please just wait until E3. there's too many articles about Kojima game now JUST WAIT EDIT: i don't mean this one, this is great :) im hyped for E3
Upon closer examination. The Lords of Shadow one matches up perfectly. Even the curl on his arm to the left is on the pic of the character from LoS. Exact match, but I still doubt that this is their next game.
Hmm a little disappointed its not mgs5
why isn't this in next months OXM ;p Say who ever heard of a supposedly epic new PS3 title codenamed: Silhouette ? I think it was the codename for the 'BBC game' and what have we here ? A Silhouette Lets try to think out of the box here people.
I've heard it suggested as a possibility beofre but now I have little doubt... it's castlevania.
And I was right wahoo!
i need a high definition version of that picture!!! omgomogmogmogm teh hyppeee
ITS CHUCK NORRIS!...in the 80's when he had longish hair.....
the master chief
Could be Vamp. He has a knife and one-sided armor.
im gonna cream myself.
Have not played a great CV since Symphony of The Night and same DS games.
PS3 or PSP only!!! sorry!!!! XBOX360 owner.
the best part is waiting why? cause all you fanboy's cry on what system its going on. oh wait its a ps3 exclusive... no its multiplatorm... no wait its going to be 360 exclusive... i just laugh at all these comment.GET BOTH CONSOLE"S ps3 exclusive- well its kojima, he mastered the ps3 with mgs4..he knows the system now, he can make the new game way better for sure . xbox 360- well there only one reason he would go on 360......MONEY.. but playing kojima game's it all comes down to one system...sony ..so you ps3 fanboy's be excited you all know its a ps3 exclusive
Kojima doing a proper fully backed,no short-cuts Castlevania with a sprinkle of GOW,a dash of MGS, and a good dose of ICO/SOTC style/ambiance/gameplay/eye candy, would be as epic as it gets.....
Ok so here it is: http://www.weplug.com/image... The silhouette is indeed from Lord of Shadow, but the problem is that, like i said previously, the game is developed by MercurySteam, the ones that made Clive Barker's Jericho. http://company.mercurysteam... (under 'proyectos') So several possibilities: - The PSM cover is a fake; - There is no link between Kojima Prod's game and the silhouette used for the cover; - Kojima Prod is giving a hand to MercurySteam in Lord of Shadow's development; My bet goes to the first answer. Why magazines would use a badly cropped pic taken from a trailer where they have press kits or can ask publisher to give artworks? And what's the link between Lord of Shadow, a game that seems close to be a christian God of War, and a grass plain under thunder with Metal Gear-esque font?
I see what you are saying,makes sense. I can only "quess" that he is overseeing this new game.And "possibly" handed over the MGS series to his team.He will probably be more of an overseer to major productions.Still involved,still give major input,but spread himself out a bit more. Possibly the timer is for two games? One to be revealed on June 1st,and the other at the Konami press event on June 4th? In a perfect World we get a new Kojima Castlevania and a new MGS5....
oh what system????? oh what system????? oh what system????? oh what system????? oh what system????? oh what system????? LOL
This Kojima guy is full of mysteries lol. I think I will forget about it till he reveals the next game in the E3. I wish I could attend it though :(
It's Wesker from Resident Evil 5
Look at the silhouette and then look at the left shoulder on the actual picture,the silhouette has just captured the spike in the background. Edit - plus the piece of fabric hanging off the inside of the left elbow.
Guys what the hell is this?
I know he does not make Castlevania games but thats a whip on his side! looks like Kojima's the new producer!
Its Lord Of Shadows.Go look at the n4g 2 days ago and you will see the same pic silouhette.I dont think its msg5 i think its something new which could be a big step next in the gamming world world from Kojima
look at the first open zone comment like the users above said.. ITs a total MATCH (even look at his right elbow and then the real image.) DEFINITELY lord of shadow... good find dude
