Kojima Hints At Something Big Related To Peace Walker

we know Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker should have a solidified date of June 8 but perhaps there's more to talk about...

It's one of those pieces of intrigue that will keep fans guessing for a while, especially if the master has no desire to unveil the secret before the game arrives. According to one of Hideo Kojima's recent Tweets (as spotted by JustPushStart), it seems we should expect a big announcement related to the upcoming PSP blockbuster. The only hints we have is that it relates to a new "Metal" and that you won't be able to fully appreciate it until you've beaten the game in question. Now, we could assume he's talking about the next title in the series; a follow-up or sequel to Peace Walker, but that's just taking a wild shot in the dark. And we already know about Metal Gear Solid: Rising for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. However, Kojima has often said that Peace Walker is more like a "true" MGS offering; i.e., it could've been accurately named "MGS5."

So what do you think it could be? Maybe Kojima will spill the beans before the game comes out in June, or maybe even earlier... We'll have to keep a sharp eye out.

That's what we need.

Because I don't own a PSP, and I'm going to be kinda pissed if Peace Walker involves a story arc that is continued in later games....because I wont ever be able to play it unless they make me a console version.

YES - DAMN RIGHT!!! We need exactly that! Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker is way too big to be just on the PSP.

I mean c'mon!!!

Cardboard Box, Love Pack Box, Tank Box, Ambulancia Box, and now Assassin's Box! Beautiful co-op action and even beautiful AI action. Please Kojima sama let it be so!!!

If all he's working on is a multiplat and a PSP game I'd wager there's something about the next blu ray release somewhere in the end game. Not just a "to be continued" either, but a true announcement of the next PS3 release..

You guys need to understand that Kojima sama is just producing Metal Gear Solid: Rising - he sometimes and by sometimes - rarely...drop in to give a few hints and ideas.

Umm...I guess this will turn into a SPOILER comment for a select few but...






The Boss...was never involved in all of that stuff. She was set up - remember? She was the one trying to tell Jack...or Big Boss to stay away from all that. The one who started it all was ZERO!!! The world begins with ZERO!! ZERO turns into ONE!! Damn that was an epic speech!

Shadwpal - I'll be honest. I get lost on half those big speeches in MGS games. Anytime they talk about the La Le Lu Le Lo I pretty much zone out..... Haha.

This also happens when Drebin starts explaining the past behind the Beauties.

Well Kojima did constantly say in interviews that Peace Walker is a test to see the reaction in the market. It's possible that either a PS3 peace walker game is coming or he's shifting the fanbase to PSP.

Don't you know the rules on announcements of announcements? 1st they have to start a bunch of rumors about what's going into the game, then they officially announce the (usually) more plausible ones, 2nd they fire up the "controversy locomotive", 3rd (This ones new!) They've started 'tweesing' thanks to Twitter, 4th they go ahead and announce that they have an announcement of an announcement that will take place at a later date! 5th They announce that announcement 6th (Finally!) They clue us in on wtf's going on.

Yes boredom is my friend and no offense.

Oh dude...it definitely will no question about it. Hell he went on the E3 stage back in '09 right after the PSP go was announced. He'd have to bring it to PSN. It'll come out for UMD and PSN.

Damn, now Kojima's getting my hopes up even more-so now, than pin-up model "Dita Von Teese" has ever done for me in the past.

I know it probably won't happen(at least not anytime soon) but I'd like to see Kojima announce later on that Metal Gear 6 is only on the PS3.....
with Peace Walker, & Risen also thrown in free, as a bonus to all the faithful followers.

Maybe it has something to do with Raiden in his youger days. The ones that Solidus was talking about in MGS2?? There is all sorts of story directions that genius Kojima could go in.

I don't understand why xbots are so happy about metal gear rising. It's not even a real metal gear- you're getting a hack and slash spin-off

dont really see the point in that as im sure its safe to say id sell much better if they brought it to the ps3 but meh.

AHA, I believe I've found out what that big surprise inside of Peace Walker is.

I'm not going to spoil it for anyone, but it happens to be what I believe is a very cool 2-worded surprise, with the initials being MH.

That's all I'm going to say till Kojima either says, or some dip-sh!t posters just have to spoil it for everyone else, so don't even think of asking.

And if you want to see if I was correct or not later on, just refer back to this post once Peace Walker's been out.

Well, I was right!
OK, Ben's just let the cat out of the bag, so I'll also spill the beans too.....

Peace Walker will be saluting the fans by adding into the game, some crossover game-play with Monster Hunter 2.

There's also a few bits where Kojima also pays homage to Front Mission Evolved,& Assassin's, Creed too.

****SPOILER ALERT****
To see PW/Monster Hunter crossover game-play, check the Peace Walker thread on 4/8/10.
