Kojima Working On New IPs, One He "Always Wanted To Make"
We're all anxiously anticipating Metal Gear Solid: Rising (PS3, 360) and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker (PSP), but you should know that Kojima Productions is working on a few new titles as well.
In a recent IGN interview with head boss Hideo Kojima, he revealed that his team is currently in the process of making several new IPs, one of which is a game Kojima has "wanted to make for a long time." This should excite the millions of Kojima fans around the world, especially those who have been waiting for this pioneer to turn his masterful attention outside of the famed MGS series. He has done it in the past, but now he has some pretty amazing hardware to utilize. Said Kojima:
"The one that I said that I’ve been wanting to make – this is a new franchise and a new title. For the other couple of titles, it could be something that you always wanted to have. It could be, or it could be something else. It’s a matter of the timing of when we can get it out."
Many have been waiting for a Zone of the Enders 3 but others are just hoping for something entirely new; thankfully, Kojima and Co. seem prepared to deliver exactly that. He says right there that it's a "new franchise and a new title," and in our eyes, that's fantastic news. Now, it's time to wait on pins and needles until they feel like lifting the veil...
