Square-Enix: "A New Promotion With Hideo Kojima"
The question that may be on the tongues of Square-Enix fans will probably be, "oh now what are they doing?!"
But maybe they'll be a bit more excited over this latest development (everyone seemed to be lukewarm over the Dungeon Siege III announcement): if you weren't already aware, Square-Enix is involved with Hideo Kojima's Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for the PSP; the publisher will release action figures based on the game's characters and mecha. But what else might Kojima and the RPG giant be working on...? Square-Enix producer Shinji Hashimoto updated his Twitter page with this picture and a message, translated by Andriasang:
"A new promotion with Hideo Kojima is set. Details will be shared at a later date."
Kojima followed this up with a Tweet of his own, saying simply- "A new collaboration with Mr. Hashimoto from Square-Enix." Part of the picture shows the title screen of S-E's upcoming Front Mission: Evolved, so perhaps the announcement involves that game. It seems more than likely, especially now that Evolved has been pushed to September, and Kojima sorta has a soft place for cool mechs. Stay tuned for the info.
