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.

Oh wow. That would be insane. Insanely one sided perhaps. Jehuty ftw. I'd buy it though!

I prefer the idea of Kojima handling projects from the start and creating his own games from scratch. I hope it's not a matter of him just fiddling with a game so the developer can put his game-selling name on the box.......kinda like those "Quintin Tarantino Presents..." flicks.

I didn't know $E and was involved with Peace Walker? Maybe I missed that article.

Me either, but they ARE sticking their fingers into every pie these days. Especially where they don't belong.

I'm curious as to where this is going. Also I wasn't aware of their involvement in Peace Walker.

Kojima,
please forget about Evolving any Missions, be it either by the front, side, or even the back door for a bit, to fully concentrate on what we really want & need, by giving us another great in the Zone of the Enders series.


BTW, what did SE have to do with Peacewalker? I sure don't remember seeing them being associated with it in any way.

They're making action figures for MGS, meaning I'm probably going to be broke for the remainder of this year and next.

Anything with Kojima involved can only be a good sign, even if it is a Square Enix game.

Good times ahead. MGS Peacewalker, God of War: Ghost of Sparta and Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep are all on my PSP most wanted list.

The PSP is not finished yet!! Who cares if iPhones and DS's are outselling PSP, it's not like PSP is failing. 60 million sold, yeah, the PSP is REALLY struggling... fanboys, pfft!!!

SE is going to get Kojima to knuckle under like Microsoft did, I hate seeing him when he has to be meek toe the line.

Am I the only who's interested in Square Enix-related stuff just because Kojima is in it too?

It's in Ben's Article, Squeeeenix will release MGS: Peace Walker figures.

Squeeeenix is big in Japan. They handle a lot of anime and music in Japan. They probably worked on some of the music for Peace Walker as well.

Whatever game they work together on it'll probably be an extremely niche game like Front Mission or something of the like. Something involving giant robots sounds 'bout right.

I'd like to see Kojima and his crew make a straight up JRPG.

Oh yeah, and does anyone think we'll get a peek at Rising this E3?

Kojima is a god of gaming. If anything can get me interested in a S-E product, it is his involvement. 'nuff said.
Peace.

Haha, relax blank line. I believe they are only involved in the action figures. Although, if SE did any CG for MGS:PW I won't mind.

There's something about that face that Kojima sama makes...it always makes me wonder. But whenever I see that face - that same exact face he makes at certain events such as him appearing out of nowhere on the brightly green lit stage on E3 09...I always get the impression of him saying

"....suki desu ka"

or...as us who knows english recall it as...

"DID YOU RIKE IT?"

"!"

Well there's one thing I know i'll not like...but LOVE

METAL GEAR SOLID PEACE WALKER WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO THE WAIT IS OVER OMG OMG OMG OMG ZOMG!!!!!! "!" "!" "!" "!" "!" "!" "!" "!"

TUESDAY 08 OF JUNE 2010 IS HERE!!!!!!!! YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!

And in other news...it's hilarious how Kojima and Shinkawa sama are wearing casual clothing whereas the Square Enix person is wearing a full on suit LMAO!!!
