Konami Ponders ZOE3. 'If You Want It, Tell Us'
If there is a soul out there who can deny that Zone of the Enders 2 wasn't bad ass, you may need clinical help. ZOE2 is the very reason why fans of the franchise have been clamoring for a third title so desperately, obviously it isn't because of the first ZOE game, which wasn't exactly a masterpiece. Kojima and co. have hinted at the possibility of a third game for some time, usually stating that when Kojima has some free time (as in: when MGS4 is finished), Konami may green-light the project.
Well, it's been a while since the thought of another sequel has been brought up, but in a recent episode of their Metal Gear Integral podcast, Kojima Productions employees were asked about the game and they showed interest in it. They were quoted as saying: "How many people really want [a] Zone of the Enders sequel?"
Aki Saito, a representative for Konami continued, "If there's so many people wanting to see Zone of the Enders, why not put the priority on top, a little further up, you know, but we just want to know." Saito then told fans and listeners to "make sure you write your comments and we'll check your comments out". And in case you're wondering where those comments go, post them up on Konami's blog at the link below:
