GDC 09: Hideo Kojima To Announce New Game At E3

Who wants to know what Hideo Kojima's next project is? Let's see a show of hands...hey, your hand isn't raised! Get it up. NOW.

IGN sat down to chat with the legendary Metal Gear Solid creator at the Game Developers Conference and of course, the question everyone wanted an answer to was, "What type of project do you want to work on next?" Now, Kojima wouldn't provide us with a name or any concrete details, but he did say it would be officially announced at E3 in June! We can also wait for the full IGN interview where we expect a few more hints to arise, but we're plenty satisfied with this news for now. Kojima and his team have already said they intend to "start from zero" in 2009, and they also want to appeal more to the Western gaming audience. So there's no knowing what Kojima and Co. may come up with next, but we get the sneaking suspicion that it's going to be a departure from the critically acclaimed and massively popular MGS series. We don't expect it to be a FPS or RPG, but perhaps it'll be something in between...maybe it'll be a special blend of genres. I think we can all agree that whatever it is, if Kojima is at the helm, it's going to absolutely rock. Therefore, we can't wait for E3 to get the goods!

In the meantime, we're certain that every last source on the planet will be searching high and low for any new information concerning this game. We're willing to report on some rumors - if they're interesting - and we'll certainly stay on top of everything else.

Sorry folks but ZoE3 wouldn't exactly be starting from zero would it?

Whatever it is I'm looking forward to the announcement, I just hope his western appeal doesn't add up to a Gears clone.

Metal Gear 5: Metal Gear Sunny.
How bout this, Snake make use of the final 6 months of his life to train Sunny, Sunny also uses the VR training and succeed him.
Sunny now holds the title Solid Sunny. XD

But well, who knows, maybe it might be a new thing, but if it's Hideo, it's not gonna be good but instead it's gonna be legendary.

Solid Sunny?....lol...that's a pretty creative backstory. I like it. Although I always thought Raiden would expect the crown.

Didn't he say in a interview a while back that he had really got into FPS? I'm not a massive fan of them myself but it would interesting to see his take on that game style.
Or maybe he'll do a Halowars, Metal Gear RTS (god i hope not!!!)

Will it be PS3 exclusive? Its ridiculous how Kojima makes so much cutscenes in the game. would be crazy to switch a disc in xbox just to watch cutscenes.

You know, I just noticed. Why does Kojima feel like he wants to go more western? He isn't the one having trouble moving units in the West. Its the other Japanese studios that are.

If you ask me, the MGS series is one of the most successful series in gaming history...GLOBALLY successful. Its not East or West. His games deal with global issues that ANYBODY with a pulse can understand.

I'm gonna be honest here. MGS is an example of how to make a globally successful game. So what if the epicenter of your work's success is in the East? That doesn't mean that u should move it to the West.

IDK, I'm not normally skeptically when it comes to Kojima, but I think this new project could turn into mediocrity...FAST...Like Halo.

It doesn't matter anyway, Kojima could come out with a corny gimmick game like Wii Music and I would still buy it!

If his idea of appealing to westerners is the same as SE's I'll be scared. Did everyone forget that japanese games are what made the golden age in gaming golden?

Could be anything really, I have a feeling it won't be ZOE.

Probably something action/adventure ish. Have a feeling it'll be something badass.

Ya i totally agree with you..I just have this feeling that it's going to be something along the lines of GOW...maybe not as much blood nor the speed but an action game with a lot of variety and choices...

noww..what would the mix of GOW n MGS look like..:s
