An ad appeared in a Japanese magazine indicating that Kojima's new project will be revealed on the 18th of May. The ad shows dark clouds in the shape of Snake.
The quote "I am Lightning, The Rain Transformed" immediately comes to mind.
I think that the message of the ad is: darkness is coming I can't really see the snake in the clouds nor does it look like we are going to get a sequel for zone of the enders. Perhaps a new IP?
Thanks god there is no green color anywhere in the pic,if there was the interweb woulh have exploded! P.S man it's hard to speak English!
Actually American is way easier than English. Try that language out first,easy to pick up since it only has 25 letters in the alphabet.
Raiden the God of thunder...
Added a bigger and better scan to altsource http://img.photobucket.com/...
I could say the Raiden on the left in this first link could be the shape your're seeing on the right page. Compare Left Raiden in link. http://www.fantom-xp.com/wp... & The figure in the foreground looking like its laying on its back with the head on the top half of the right page. http://img.photobucket.com/... EDIT Then again the more you look at the middle of the top part of the right page the head actually looks like it has Raidens Chin.
Wow Seriously? American is not a language..
You guys got sucked by a hype machine. Yeah, I can't wait too but I prefer waiting till monday instead of dreaming imaginary figures from the picture. But honestly, I would so love to see Zoe3, Snatcher AND MGS5 so in any case I'll be disappointed and happy at the same time. Lol at 1.8 and 1.9. You guys made my day. Have a bubble.
That quote makes a lot of sense here.
lmao fishd and morgan
Lol @ the interpretations by fishd and morgan. xD
The picture on the right, right above the 2009, has Solid Snakes laying on his back with his head facing up to the sky. The picture on the left has the rest of his torso. If you can't see Snake, you lack imagination! The way I see it, it's way too early to have another MGS game out, so could this be like a directors cut or something? They already announced the iPhone MGS so that limits the playing field. I don't want to piss anyone off but they are showing a storm in the making. Storms have a habit of disrupting what makes people feel comfortable. Ahh hell with it... In the left picture, it looks as if a funnel cloud will be coming down. What is one of the main colors that lets you know a tornado is coming?
Why? Because if it was a 360 exclusive or a multiplatform game, I would guess that MS would make sure that the big unveiling was at E3... The fact that it is being announced in May seems to me to be very telling about what console it will appear on.
Didn't Raiden mean storm or something in Japannesse?
Do you guys see the 2 people in the grass on the left page and the house in the right page??? Could that mean anything?
You're all wrong. The news will tell of a new online-only game developed by Kojima. It's not MGS to say, rather it's a 3rd person team tactical game...There I used my imagination and made up sh1T haha. I think the picture isn't supposed to mean anything but it sure looks nice....I can bet this game will be only for the PS3!
its a horror game. something truly terrifying. hell yeah.
Is that Raiden crawling through the grass on the right pic????!!
It's obviously MGS related, as we know from GDC. I know that in GDC they had that screen with "Mission: The Next MGS" but let's not forget it was a developers conference, I believe Kojima was just sharing his experience and ideas about how to make a sequel to a franchise that is supposed to end after the death of it's main character, but which is also a beloved series that fans demand to play more. Aside from that, they told about an E3 announcment MGS related. They don't usually tease about minor MGO expansions and I don't think it will be a new MGS or whatever you like to call it, not this soon after MGS4. Maybe a complete version, like Subsistance or Substance. It could come as DLC for those who have MGS4 (probably under the crap Konami infrastructure) and as a disc release, with MGS4 in a disc and additional content in another disc. But this is just a guess.
Those are some pretty dark clouds.. Clouds..hmmm..Cloud from FFVII! Now Cloud had a really big sword.. Sword..hmmm..Raiden uses a sword! Now Raiden is the lightning.. Lightning..hmmm..lightning is long and windy just like a snake! Now a Snake is a reptile that is cold blooded.. Cold blooded..hmmm..that's the opposite of warm blooded which is what humans are..Solid Snake! Solid Snake is a snake that is warm blooded! It's all coming together now! So by these calculations we see Solid snake in the clouds, laying down, holding flowers to his chest, and being kissed on the head by meryl... All in the clouds! It seems that Clound from FFVII and Raiden team up to take down and kill the legendary hero solid snake!! So obvious!
You forgot to mention that the grass is blowing to the north. Since Sephiroth resided in the Northern Cave, it may indicate that Sephiroth may battle alongside Solid Snake as a good guy this time. However, there is one blade of grass (blade of grass number: 20993) pointing to the south, so this may indicate a turn of events at the very end !!! Oh no!!!!
the image looks like a side view of a snake with a smaller snake coming out of its mouth, maybe a story of someones love child with snake or big boss or boss or liquid or solidius or ummmmm i dont know what it could be im blabing nonsense
It's a new dog humping a rhino game! Kojima never lets me down! /sarcasm
All I see is this
http://img213.imageshack.us... What the game could be... Hmmm...
The fox hound logo is at the bottom right hand corner of the photo. So its gotta be another metal gear. So stop speculating.
Thats the logo for Kojima Productions
You know, it's quite funny that people still think this is Metal Gear related even after Hideo Kojima confirmed that he and his team are working on a new IP. I blame Twitter and every moron who fell for the "Metal Gear Rising" & "Metal Gear Solid 4 + Oxide" on 360 rumors.
There is a house behind the grass maybe it means something?
That would blow my mind.
Not trying to go against but I would think they would have a castle or something in a darker theme. Also does Kojima do Castlevenia? If he does I did not know that.
No but Castlevania is a great legacy which has gone somewhat downhill like Silent Hill. I think his next IP is not going to be about stealth or tactical missions. Kojima has never done a castlevania title, but he works for Konami whom own the silent hill and Castlevania IP's. I am hoping for a gothic castelvania with great graphics and a great story.
Did you just compare $h!tty Silent Hill, to the Belmonts, Oh how I wish I had the Vampire Killer now! Koji Igarashi does Castlevania now. Michiru Yamane does the score. and Ayame Kojima, helps conceptualizes. Edit: Death would like to have a chat w/you.
on my birthday???? Thanks Kojima. best present yet
my birthday too.
Wow, a lot of May 18ths here.
Cant wait to see the new title from Kojima...
And weather or not if it'll be PS3/360 exclusive or multiplatform...
It won't be 360 exclusive
Why do you say that? Just curious. I doubt it will happen either.. just wanna know your thoughts.
The message is in the grass which is unfortunately in Kitagana. Anyone read Japanese?
imagine 32 player online mech battles......kojima style........can you imagine?
Obviously, you didn't play the big mech fight in ZOE2. 32 mech, you are so thinking small... Or at least try imagining being a mech pilot in control of a group of mechs taking in a full fleet w/escorting mechs. Taking on a ship as big as Macross.
The storm/raiden is coming indeed. The tears will be rising. Clever leaving this in the PS3 channel a sort of pre damage control.
You think Its still going to be a 360 exclusive right?
A next Metal Gear is. lolz.
Some say it is and some say its multi platform. You have to admit I was getting attacked for even suggesting it was Metal Gear Rising Raiden. The guy that said his sister works for Konami said it was a Raiden game based on how he became a cyborg and it was exclusive for the 360. Now this comes out that could possibly prove he was telling the truth about the existence of the game. http://twitter.com/GameFork
Twitter? Gamefork? Really?
"Clever leaving this in the PS3 channel a sort of pre damage control." Considering that this KOJIMA were talking about, it's pretty obvious that his next game will be coming to the PS3, so putting it in the PS3 channel only seems obvious. It wouldn't make much sense to put this in the 360 channel right now when Kojima's last game was a PS3 exclusive, and when he's NEVER made a game for the 360. I could care less if it's multiplatform or not, but I can't wait to find out what it is.
Thats Ok guys I actually received death threats when I predicted Final Fantasy 13 would come to the 360 so this isn't that bad. Just don't get personal. LMAO
All that thing about twitter/gamefork is a fake ---> http://forums.gametrailers.... ;)
I'll check that out he could be informing people on that site based on what N4g did which doesn't mean sh*t PS3 fanboys falsely report all Stories if they can when its good news for the 360. Example. PS3 yellow light of death articles will be falsely reported with people reporting *spam* and *fake*. Just because that happens doesn't mean other sites should say I guess N4g is crap it wasn't true.
your comments are always pathetic attempts to get attention and responses. Do you not have the ability to create more logical and useful comments. Get the fvck out of here. No one wants to read your flaming crap go hang out in your stupid xbox section, you're useless and a waste of bandwidth, stop commenting such useless crap, useless crap commenting guy..
True. But, I wouldn't put it out of the question if he will make a game for the x360. He's made a game for the xBox, so it's possible he will make one for the x360. It could be exclusive. It could be multi. Do I Care? Nope. I just wanna see what he will be making. :)
Either way I'll be playing it, but the thought does seem a bit weird.
Why on earth would a Raiden game be exclusive to the 360? It would make no sense in terms of story to anyone.
i know ,it must be hard for your little robot brain to comprehend that huh. ps3 exclusives ALL THE FVCKIN WAY foo.
thats already pretty much proven fake, have you read the gamefork, gamespoon and i think gameknife twitter pieces too? anyway, DESPITE what other people are 'saying' (rumour means nothing) wheres the evidence for either a 360 exclusive Metal Gear or a multiplatform metal gear? arent konami working on a 360 exclusive but its only going to be published in japan, therefore its probably a jrpg of some sort, no way a metal gear game. anyway, please, tell me how you know this, or is it just speculation and/or jealousy of Sony exclusives e.g MGS4? btw guys, remember this - "Otacon get a grip, we are using BD" this is kojima's 360 support :)
Konami's Japanese only 360-exclusives are sidescrolling shooters in the Gradius mold. Check out Otomedius G.
You can pretty much assume it's going to be Metal Gear:Raiden from the pic. Fairly obvious.
Kojima is never obvious.
where? I cant see anything cept grass and clouds... :[
Konami will announce another game for the 360 idiot, its not going to be MGS or Z.O.E, those titles are solid 'Sony PS3 ONLY!', but there will be another game that might be multi platform or exclusive to the 360 which will probably be revealed at E309
I want konami to make a really good looking MGS5 this time, with graphics that can top uncharted2, KZ2, HeavyRain & I think its about time they get rid of the old walking, crouch & lying down animations with brand new more fluidic animations that can out class Uncharted's animations
Weather or not Kojima has actually found advantages with the console. Otherwise were looking at multiplatform.
Well, yes, but I think they'll want to see how a MG title does as a milti plat so nobody should feel too certain about what platforms this is coming to. Multi plat would be my guess just because of the extra revenue they could make but, you would imagine, that any new MG has to at least be available where most fans of the series game and that is without any doubt PS3-jeez I know four people in my town alone that got a PS3 JUST for MGS4!
Is still going to have to compete with Kojima's perfectionism. The fact that he's a technophile.
