Wait a minute...I heard of this game...
That's the game Kojima's working on? :x

I still think it's a Metal Gear game...but then again...

Masta_fro3437d ago

well dont know anything about it, but if its a Kojima game, then by all means count me in...

dont care if its exclusive as long as ps3 is lead platform...

ultimolu3437d ago

Yep. I remembered hearing about this game but I can't remember where.

-x.Red.x-3437d ago

WTF? i don't want to click that site

Sangria3437d ago

So when it's "LesbianGamers" everything is all right but when it's "GayGamers" it's suspicious? XD

funkycoldmedina3437d ago

@Red... LOL. Bubble for you.

-x.Red.x-3437d ago

i don't want my history to say i visited hat site

O.o :P


SevWolf3437d ago

@ red....hahaha...nice...
anyway on topic...when I saw this rumor I was actually a bit excited to see what a great mind like Kojima can do with a genre like this...but then I dug a bot around the web...and the neogaf thread and realized even though KONAMI announced this game it is already being developed by mercury steam as shown on the I doubt this is Kojima's...can't f*cking wait for the announcement

talltony3437d ago

He will announce this game first and then announce mgs5 next. You'll see.

cmrbe3437d ago

is a game like Castlevenia. The first time i saw it i thought it was castlevenia and the name Lord of shadows was just a placename.

Its a PS3/X360 game btw. I don't think its a Kojima game though. Kojima might just be promoting it. Either way if its like Castlevania then its a firstday buy for me.

gaffyh3437d ago

Yeah I immediately though Lords of Shadow when I saw the silhouette, and that game look pretty awesome from the teaser they showed. Looks like it will be a DMC + Castlevania game

dragunrising3437d ago

I definitely wouldn't mind another MGS game, then again...I am interested in any game made by Kojima.

E3 can't come soon enough.

I want my MGS4 trophies! I would be happy just with that announcement.

JoySticksFTW3437d ago

I clicked on it without reading the link and was like WTF?!?! LOL!!

Topless dudes and guys posing with puppies all up on that site... D:

But they do have a trailer for the game though.

Guys, your eyes won't bleed. Check the trailer out! Kojima can never disappoint

LastDance3437d ago

My dad will beat me if I go there.

morganfell3437d ago

^^^^You are kidding, right? I mean you are sporting a next gen Village People avatar...

No Way3437d ago

Well.. Duh! =P

But, the question is this..
When will he announce MGS5?

DaTruth3437d ago

Seriously, I'm crying from laughter! Glad I got here late!

UnblessedSoul3437d ago

He's working on two projects right? one of them is def metal gear

MattyF3437d ago

Yeah, he said they are making two games. So it can still be MGS and this.

zoneofenders3437d ago

of course there will be a new MG game
the japanese shopping site dont lie.
however we are not sure if it is on PS3.......
we are pretty sure it wont be on XBOX360 though, at least not in japan.

DelbertGrady3436d ago

Death Metal Gear? Snake wearing corpse paint as camouflage?

sinncross3437d ago

Then why go through so much trouble to keep it a secret, especially since the trailer for LOS was first shown at Liepzig 2008.

Unless of course Kojima is not working on MGS5, but rather a different team i Kojima Productions ,which would make sense since that is what Kojima originally wanted.

SolidAhmed3437d ago

be true since the poster matching lord of shadows character.
why not and i think this is a good move for hideo since he have one legendary franchise so it is the time to do the next legendary franchise.

go on Hideo do something that change the action adventure games

cayal3437d ago

"be true since the poster matching lord of shadows character. "

It would be hard to make a silhouette of someone else in that shape. Kojima isn't so obvious.

cayal3437d ago

I meant wouldn't be so hard.

Antan3437d ago

Kojima has nothing to do with LOS.

FAT MAN GO BOOM3437d ago

This so is the game that he is working on....

The shadow fits so well with the main character....

This will be good something other than MGS not saying it was bad loved every minute of it... but I would really really love to see him do a different series for a bit...

TOO PAWNED3437d ago

It is well known that Kojima loves God Of War games, and if you ask me this has a lot of GOW into it

peeps3437d ago

is it possible PSW got confused though...?

I mean for a start, i don't think they are an official magazine (as in not official sony/playstation) and it's quite possible they made a mistake... or something has lead them to this which throws ppl off the current scent (new mgs)

in my comment earlier i mentioned how with all this hideo countdown, would he really do all that just to say 'i am going to be working on a game konami announced ages ago'

MattyF3437d ago

Kojima could have helped watch over this game and will announce it at E3. Doesn't mean it was made by KojiPro. Kojima can help other devs out with games.

Antan3437d ago

I talk to the MS guys on a regular basis, i worked on Jericho over in Madrid back in 2007, still good friends of course. We chat about things in general and of course about LOS, and Kojima has never been mentioned once, not even hinted at. I shall hold my hands up if he has any involvement in this whatsoever, but im pretty sure Konami are letting the guys get on with it.

Sangria3437d ago (Edited 3437d ago )

Check my comment here:
Once again, the main problem is that Lord of Shadow is developed by MercurySteam and that the cover is a pretty bad shoop, as the silhouette took some parts of the background in the LoS trailer.
And why would we tease a game that has been announced several months ago? (article below is dated for the 21st August of 2008, almost one year ago)

KionicWarlord2223437d ago

Well they almost look exact the same

Perhaps a different costume ?

cayal3437d ago

Like I said above Kojima isn't obvious. It wouldn't be hard to make a same silhouette of a different character.

It would be like the Assassins Creed Snake.
