    Hideo Kojima Working on New Title

    Sponsored Links
    Metal Gear Solid 4 will bring an end to the Solid Snake line of Metal Gear games. But, just in case you've heard rumors to the otherwise, it won't bring an end to series creator Hideo Kojima.

    Speaking with Japan's Nikkei BP website, Konami president Fumiaki Tanaka revealed that Kojima is working on the concept for a new game outside of the Metal Gear universe. Pressed further on this mystery title, or possibly titles, Tanaka said that he couldn't reveal anything at this point and that a formal announcement won't be coming this year. Instead, we can probably look forward to hearing something after Kojima has written the new title's scenario, which won't happen until after MGS4 has been released and Metal Gear Online has been given a major push.

    In other Metal Gear Solid 4 news, Tanaka revealed to the site that Konami expects sales to be similar to past titles. While the sales focus is on the European and North American markets, the company is aiming for sales of one million in Japan alone. Nikkei pointed out to Tanaka that the PS3 hardware has yet to hit the two million mark in Japan, to which Tanaka noted that many users are waiting for MGS4 to buy a PS3. He also feels that because a number of major PS3 titles from other companies will be released before MGS4, the system's userbase total will rise.

    Outside of Metal Gear, Tanaka shared a few insights into Konami's development plans as a whole. The company will be releasing remakes of more classic titles and tapping into more classic franchises in the future. Although Tanaka wouldn't get into specifics, he did suggest that download services like Wii Ware could play a role in this effort.

    Tanaka made mention of all the major platforms in his discussion with Nikkei, but one in particular got praise: the PS3. In previous interviews, Tanaka has shared his opinion that Sony's online platform for the PS3 fits well with Konami. That stance hasn't changed, he said, noting that the open nature of Sony's online platform, in contrast to the regulations placed on the Wii and Xbox 360 online systems, gives Konami a lot of freedom.

    What Konami will do with that freedom is up in the air right now, though. With Metal Gear Online, set to be bundled with Metal Gear Solid 4, Tanaka admitted that the company is still in the trial stages regarding a business model.

    Well, hopefully this new project will be as good as Metal Gear Solid 4. But im guessing that they will find some way to extend the series. (use raiden instead of snake, for instance) But nothing's ever sure.

    If they tie all the loose ends in the whole Metal Gear Solid storyline, and give it an epic ending, I'm fine with that. IMO, there's no need to make 15 Metal Gear Solid games. Not saying that I wouldn't love them, but there's always a possibility that they can't come up with half as good story as present MGS games anymore.

    I'd imagine Hideo Kojima would hit us up with another franchise once the Metal Gear Solid series is completed. He has way too much money to make.

    MGS series might be over! Hideo Kojima would not make a franchise out of MGS. He spent 20 years of his life making all 4 games so he would not give it away to some money hungry developer that would make it into ''just another shooter''.

    He's made more than just 4 games. He's help make dozens in the Metal Gear series alone (you have to take into consideration all the mobile games, the original Metal Gear, the numerous expansions and ports like with Twin Snakes, etc).

    Hopefully with this time on his hands, he'll make Zone of the Enders 3 on the PS3.

    I bet if ZOE3 came out it would be a hit. Maybe there will be a new rider instead of Dingo this time. That would be something.
