Kojima's Moving On

Metal Gear Solid has become a staple of the gaming community, and the man behind it, Hideo Kojima, has been working on the series for more then two decades. And now, it's finally coming to an end with Metal Gear Solid 4. That isn't the end of Kojima though, IGN reports that Kojima is working on a totally new game.

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.

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.
It'll be interesting to see what Kojima can come up with after Metal Gear Solid.

At least it's not like all the other times Kojima has said he wouldn't work on any more Metal Gear titles. This time he's saying he has plans for other stuff.

I imagine it will be full of crazy, just like the metal gear series. Don't get me wrong, the games are fun, but the stories are like the night after drinking 4 bottles of cough syrup.

Zone of Enders 3? He has been hinting that he's wanted to go back to the series, but that Metal Gear Solid has taken up all his time.

I'm predicting a Zone of Enders game in which you have to expose your console to direct sunlight to gain certain powers.

Metal Gear plots would be inexcusable as film.

I'd love to see a game like Shadow of the Colossus from Kojima becasue one of the greatest strengths in all of the MGS games has been awesome boss fights.

I think Metal Gear Solid is like Final Fantasy. The plots are so "epic" and convinced of their own greatness that it's infectious. The games are great, but the stories tend to be ridiculous.

This is what I want. Metal gear has been fun but I loved Zone of the Enders so much more.

I hope he comes up with a new series with roller blading boss fights, tentacle-wearing bad guys, sword fights when they would get you shot to death, and....oh...

Seriously, I just don't think Kojima's that good. Sorry. The Metal Gear games have really shined only in the field of graphics for me- Solid and Solid 2 seemed to really push the envelope and Solid 4 looks to continue that. But the gameplay has always been...weird...the stories are idiotic, and the characters stupid.

That's just my opinion, but I'm about as interested in Kojima's future as I am in getting kicked in the balls.

Hmm, how odd, but I just realized that some of the greatest figures of gaming are getting, well...old. Kojima's somewhere around 44-45 years old, and I think Miyamoto is 55 years old. I wonder who's going to take up the mantle after them, and I'm amazed that they've been going on for so long.

Just an odd thought that popped up.

And MGS2. I wouldn't be surprised if that wasn't the first time, either.
