Metal Gear Solid creator, Hideo Kojima gives more vague hints about his next project.
I want ANYTHING Kojima is working on! Anything!
Even Hello Kitty? Although, I'm sure he could make it interesting in some way :)
I just read his twitterlonger and he mentions mechs. I sure hope its ZOE3.
"he mentions mechs" Did he say if they will have a Toyota or a Nissan logo on them?
Imagine a FISSION MAILED in Hello Kitty. That would be freakin epic
Zone Of The Enders 3, featuring a gay male lead. There are no inherently gay male leads in any games, really (Dragon Age and Mass Effect give you the choice, but that's not nearly as taboo as a character with a preselected sexuality), and Raiden's seemingly metrosexual design in a game led by strong masculine characters until that point (Big Boss and Snake in MG and MGS) was pretty taboo and controversial at the time. A gay male lead seems like the next step, and a boundary that Kojima alone has the balls to push and the talent to keep it relevant and tasteful. Other than that, I can't think of anything that would be taboo enough for him to stake his reputation and job on it. @ Blaster: Yes, I've played both games. Did you even read anything I wrote past "gay male lead"? Western gaming is huge now. As it is, anime-based games that aren't FF don't do as well here because they don't go with the alpha-male stereotype grain. Kojima brilliantly went against the grain with Raiden in MGS2, who's to say he wouldn't go a step further in ZOE3? I could care less, but the cool homophobe kids would disapprove. Hell, Microsoft bans gay gamers from XBL. Homosexuality is certainly still taboo in the world of gaming. So, how about you quit writing off my simple speculation just cuz you don't agree? It could be completely wrong, but that's why it's speculation, not rumor or prediction. Of course, I'm still doubtful you even read and thought about anything I wrote.
Did you even play these games? Just so you know, there is an actual story to ZOE. Im sure you noobs who like to cross dress would love to have such a luxury, but this isn't suited for noobs in the west. ZOE is suited towards gamers that have been gaming for longer then this generation. The fact that you are a child, in the begining of ZOE1 negates the fact you need to care about what sex you are. Its a touching story that I would love to even see a ZOE movie. I would cry in happiness.
Metal Gear Solid for iPhone? he didnt say what platform unless i misread, but in this installment we get to move around not like the first iPhone game
There exists the possibility that the taboo of which he speaks may be more localized in nature. Hero of the game is burakumin?
@mjolliffe: He'd make Hello Kitty awesome...
I hope it's ZOE3 and utilizing PS3 power.
Grow up, assholes.
Can't wait for a Full Reveal. ( Zone Of The Enders )
ZOE3 please Kojima!
i so want a zoe3 ...
It will be for the next generation of consoles
Kojima takes light years to develop a game
Maybe you're right.
The secret ps3 exclusive at e3 ZOE3?
I've never played Zone of the Enders :'( Besides wanting ANY game from Kojima, all I want is a MGS game that tells Revolver Ocelot's story dammit!! :'(
i never did either but saw vids and it looks fun, so here i am hoping if its not ZONE ender 3, mybe a HD remake of the 2 other ones, or myb ehe will release both in a collection like for MGS
yea, maybe about the time when ocelot worked for the ussr in soviet-afganistan that would be nice or the story of the boss in WWII when she teamed with the cobra to destroy german targets
Omg! Revolver Ocelot working for the USSR!! *faints* Omg yeah! The Boss in WWII would be sick, shît I'd love to see how she ended up with The Sorrow. [Off-topic] I went to GameRape(GameStop) today with my neighbor because we wanted to trade the POS that MW2 is and lmao, they offered him $24 for it. While they have it used for $54. Then this kid came through and brought his 360 saying that he wanted to trade it for a PSP!! I couldn't help it so I started laughing xD. Omg you guys should've seen the cashiers, they went crazy!! The cashier was like "what!!?? But why do you wanna trade this system!? PSP has no games!!" and some other bullshît, I was like WTF!? That's not their problem, their job is to sell as much as possible, like they gave a fuçk about what you buy(some do I guess). At the end they offered him the MGS:PW BB PSP bundle :)
I got a feeling the taboo might be a reference to 'sex' and if Kojima is going to help the game industry finally (FINALLY!) grow up - then 'Two thumbs up' for the man!
I badly want ZOE3. 360 and PS3 release most likely. It's such an awesome franchise.
Just imagine how sick ZOE3 could be if it was exclusive for the ps3?
I like the sounds of it already. I want something new and fresh.
The game will probably turn out to be some shoddy game.
that wasn't selling too well since mech games are niche products. Probably has to do with Metal Gear or a new IP.
A Z.O.E. 3 announcement would be a dream come true.
the biggest taboos tend to be about sex or religion. im guessing it will have something to do with either. i wasnt a very big fan of ZOE2, but did enjoy the first. i think the first one was kind of short, if iam remembering correctly.
So, here he comes again...love the fact that he shows up saying absolutely nothing and still manages to hype people - myself included...
You know whatever he works on is going to have the name "Metal Gear" on it.
Not really true seeing as how he's work on a number of non-Metal Gear titles in the past.
Personally I think Kojima should remake MGS using the same engine from MGS 4.
