A New Detail in Kojima's New Project: "Kumori" "When it rains, it pours. Hideo Kojima, Konami's legendary designer and director of the Metal Gear Solid series, should know: Any time he announces a new teaser, the down-pour of conspiracies and rumours is overwhelming. First the man threw us off at GDC '09, announcing a new Metal Gear Solid amidst a silhouette of what looked to be Raiden in the background. Then he posted a new teaser on his site - a scenic shot of rolling clouds and open grass with the words 'Next' in the foreground.

"Those rolling clouds and open fields? They come under a simple SWF application name: Kumori."

there's an "O" in Kumori, and there's also an "O" in Xbox... MGS4 for 360 confirmed!!!

Sorry, accidental reply. Deleted as it doesnt relate to your post.

You may be surprised, but I am 99.99% sure that is MGS5 and it will be in World War II and you will play with The Boss! There are many hints showing that, especially the big field looking like a battlefield and the old dirty photo like the ww2 ones! I hope it is true, than you will be like O_O! lol

MazzingerZ3442d ago (Edited 3442d ago )

All joking aside, I think people is mixing 2 different things, on one side the X360 port of MGS4 and on the other Kojima's new game.

The MGS4 port will probably be announced by Konami rather than Kojima itself, that's not really news nor will make E3 the greatest ever. Today is clear that there are no 3rd party exclusives really so Kojima's game might as well be muliplatform...

I just hope it's timed exclusive and PS3 is the leading platform...whatever quality they deliver on a later port is irrelevant, we just want to enjoy a Kojima game as it should be.

By the way Kojima himself said that his new game was something new that no one had tried before, something to do with tornados? controlling weather?....not much time left to find out

Japanese: kumori
English: cloudiness, cloudy weather, shadow

Nike3442d ago

"Kumori is Japanese for 'Cloudy'. However, more explicitly, it’s also the name of a famous 15th century ninja: Kumori Iga."

Sorry I randomly clicked the screen and hit the "Disagree" button...

morganfell3442d ago

Maybe Frank Jaeger will get his own game.... But likely it is a Raiden themed title.

RememberThe3573442d ago

Sounds like a cool concept either way. Someone should make a game about him, why not Kojima?

windmill1453442d ago

Yes, I remember reading something like that in the Official MGS Database that is downloadable on PSN. I believe they explained it in Raiden profile.

Cool theory.
Not long now until we know what's planned.

>_> it's already 18 May in Tokyo!!

I can't wait.. but my head.. I must resist.. don't go.. to bed..

PirateThom3442d ago

It's only 6:30 in the morning though. :P

Parapraxis3442d ago (Edited 3442d ago )

Hahaha, yeah, I checked just now as well.
+12 hrs ahead in Tokyo from my timezone EST.
I'll assume this game is being made specifically for a western audience however, So the announcement will probably occur ar 12am in GMT. :P

Nike3442d ago (Edited 3442d ago )

Geez guys, I was pulled out of bed by Ravi at 2.30 AM to submit this story to N4G. And now you got me wanting to stay awake too. ^^

PirateThom3442d ago


The ad was in Famitus though.

Parapraxis3442d ago

ohhh I didn't know that Thom, thanks for the tip.
Maybe they'll unveil at Tokyo - noon?

Xbox 360


Fishy Fingers3442d ago (Edited 3442d ago )

Kojima has already confirmed HE is NOT working on an MGS4 port, so there for this cannot be MGS4.

Milky Joe3442d ago

No no no. I think I may have uncovered the real truth:

RememberThe3573442d ago

Wasn't the same said about Bioshock? Just because Kojima isn't working on it doesn't mean it's not happening.

Fishy Fingers3442d ago (Edited 3442d ago )

LOL... Thats right, but this article, like all the others relates to KOJIMAs new project and as he has stated he is not working on MGS4, so HIS >new< project (this project) cant be MGS4.

I'm not saying a port is/isnt happening or whatever, perhaps from another studio, what I'm saying is people constantly banging on about an MGS4 port in these (Kojima) articles are well off base.

"im not working on MGS4", article about his >new< game shows up... "Zomg it's MGS4 port"... see what I'm getting at?

cayal3442d ago

"Wasn't the same said about Bioshock? Just because Kojima isn't working on it doesn't mean it's not happening."

From what I have heard and read about Kojima, I don't think his ego would let someone else touch what is his.
