Kojima working on “adventure” title, says collaborator

Monday, 19th July 2010 17:19 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Hideo Kojima is working on an “adventure” title, according to collaborator on the project, Chiyomaru Shikura.

Shikura is the head of Japanese media company 5pb, which specialises in erotic and dating sim games.

Kojima did say he wanted to break a certain taboo. This could be it. If he stuffs it up, he says he’ll leave the industry.

On the taboo game, he said it’d be coming to “high-spec” consoles, with the assumption being 360 and PS3.

Shikura said that the title is the third in “a conceptual science series.” While the identity of that series is unknown, it could mean Zone of the Enders, despite Kojima saying earlier this month a third title in the series would be looked into after the release of Metal Gear Solid: Rising.

He’s also said he’s considering working on Metal Gear Solid 5.

“The meaning of why I am personally connected to this project is that this is the third entry in a conceptual science series,” he told 4Gamer (via Kotaku). “And that it is a project with Kojima.

“Kojima told me that he wanted to make an adventure game. We’re at the still stage where we need to go to a secluded spot in the mountains and hash this project out, and thus, we don’t have any of the minute details hammered out.”

Tokyo or bust, Hideo chap.

Thanks, Eurogamer.

    Kojima’s games are pish apart from Snatcher and Policenauts. It’s the only two decent games he’s created.

    I couldn’t give a fuck about MGS or any of it’s sequels. The games bored me to death, plus the narrative in such games were incomprehensible.

    This guy should be creating new IP rather than fannying about with the same old franchise!

    In Japan, There’s no genre as Dating Simulator. They’re all known as Adventure games. Dating Simulator is a term that people use in west.

    just like they don’t have such a thing as ‘rape sim’, it’s all action adventure to those guys.

    @1 AMEN! *fingers crossed*

    @7 what mystery taboo game? btw he’s not working on ZOE3 atleast it was what he said some weeks ago.

    and also he’s somehow working on Castlevania.

    @8 I wouldn’t mind playing a mature title of him on that genre. *wink-wink*

    @6 Another with not enough brain to understand complex entertainment. Saying you don’t like MGS is like saying you don’t like Citizen Kane. Tastes are tastes, but culture is culture.

    Nah mate, the franchise just has a mediocre story that bored me to death.

    It’s not my problem 5+ million fuck-wits like yourself bought into MGS’s mediocrity.

    You should seriously play more games if you think MGS had great narrative.

    But, you’re a MGS fanboy and who am i to change that incompetent little brain of yours!
