Kojima has released a high quality render of Ludence / Ludens, the mascot of the new studio. He also provided some information on what this character represents.
Looks like a gundam what was that called ahhh Tallgeese, I think.
not so impressed, looks like a Big Boss suit with a helmet ...Shinkawa although supertalented needs support form additional artists, this obviously comes from one man. MGS had a lot more people working on art except Shinkawa in order to deliver the excellent designs- especially in mGS4 ...however this is generally a good concept art
Agreed. Kojima should've just went with a horror game. ;)
Hard to tell ...
@LOL ..no i would prefer again a TPS-action title from Kojima ...but not so heavy on stealth and not again human enemies ...
I really want metal gear 6... similar what was MGS2, 3 and 4.... 5 was good, but different! I really wish Kojima makes military theme from past.. he really knows how to create a realistic and great looking game with goofy/weird/funny stuff... MGS3 best example.. realistic jungle and story, yet boss battles are from other worlds... and those history lessons, music... ahhh.. its just have to be 60's, 70's, 80's... it is his time after all! Edit: Maybe something like terminator.. best from both worlds.. future and past! Horror also good idea..
looks ordinary to me. Looking forward to his next game. Probably a teaser at VGA
Talgeese is a mobile suit, but not a Gundam ;) I can't take the name Ludens seriously. Isn't that a cough drop? That aside, it totally looks like the FOX Engine. I am not at all complaining, I think it's awesome. Makes your wonder how that came to pass. I also must smile warmly at Ludens' suit being called the EVA suit. Kojima and his references. :) I'd love to see the studio's game very soon.
this proves my theory, I said this a few days ago: "- it will be about Ironman sized mecha not giants. - almost all Kojima games are unofficially part of a timeline, the Kojiverse, so I guess the game will be set sometime between MGS and ZoE, probably just after the Policenauts/Snatcher era" "frontier spirit" means this is the first point in the timeline when humans start to expand outside earth and the moon, they didn't yet at the era of S/P but they colonized Mars in the ZoE era
Nothing to do with Gundam... more like Pacific Rim.
Undead space knight.... I like it.
Kojima making Dead Space.lol I would love for Kojima to make a survival horror game in space.
Looks like a White Knight. I guess you can say that's fitting.
If this was call of duty , people would be on a rampage and ready to kill. But its Kojima thats cool :)
It's a solid concept art though. Unlike cod being a solid game
Well that's because we already know in advance that a COD game will do absolutely everything in its power to avoid exploiting any interesting ideas. At least with a Kojima game, we know there's potential (also, it's not 100% clear if this character is actually part of a game, or if he's only the studio mascot.)
Please , this is not your place if you think filthy like that..
So the character is a walking skeleton?
probably a face mask it looks like it can be removed.
Maybe, as Omnilash stated, it could be some kind of xray mask, which would be cool and terrifying for his enemies.
A Metaphor? An X-ray? Art - absolutely.
Hey who turned out the lights.Hey who turned out the lights.Hey who turned out the lights.Hey who turned out the lights.Hey who turned out the lights.Hey who turned out the lights.Hey who turned out the lights.
That looks awsome!
Why is this news?
What is news to you?
Because it's something we didn't know about previously. Do you see?
Why is your comment relevant?
To be or not to be?
Maybe 'Kojima' is working on what Sony want to be a playstation Halo type game.
It looks super epic, Kojima knows how to make me happy.
Sweet, I wonder if its a character or enemy from the title he's working on.
More Kojima hype, I guess I will get excited in 5 years because thats when he will finish his next game
It looks stupid. But because it's Kojima everyone will blindly think it's the greatest thing ever.
i think your blind if you dont think that its an awesome mascot.
Ah so of we don't think its stupid like you do we're blind?
Why is it stupid? I'm curious to hear your answer :).
What if we think it's decent but not the greatest thing ever? Are we only partially blind?
Excited for a Kojima sci-fi game! Concept is brilliant and very promising
Knights in spaaaace! This is sure to be better than Pigs in spaaaace! 😀
That looks badass!
Can't wait to see what Kojima and the new studio has been working on
Other logo looks better imo
I think its a character from a game he's working on. Mascots usually aren't just there for show in the gaming industry. Like Master Chief is to Xbox, Crash to PS, and Mario for Nintendo.
Oh shit, folks. Looks like we're going back into space.
It looks like the head was grabbed from a far more interesting design and pasted onto a very generic space combat suit concept render. I was hoping for so much more.
VanQuish and Dark Souls had a child together
Looks pretty sweet
I rike it.
I want a game with this character, lol.
Is this just a mascot in some way for his company or is this a legit character in his new game...hopefully we can get some more concrete details soon
"We landed on the moon!" lol im not going to judge until i see whats going on though
Like the look of this
God E3 needs to come asap I pray we see this and RDR 2.
They should make this a DLC for no mans sky.
Thre3 worlds collide are awesome.
I do not like it.
So much detail! I cant wait to see what Kojima's next project!!!
Looks like the armour I have to put on after my mother hears me cussing her out, copyright mate.
From the picture alone I am inclined to say it doesn't do much for me but at the same time I am going to need to know more info.
Not sure what to think. Is it a dead astronaut? The name is strange as well. I hope his next game isn't a stealth game.
