Metal Gear Solid composer Norihiko Hibino’s website has revealed a new Konami title for the Xbox 360.
The site lists the game under 2009 projects, and has it as a Japan release only so far:
Bayonetta is listed as a PS3 only title on the site, when it clearly isn’t, so an Xbox exclusive is just speculation at this point. Hopefully some light will be shed on this in June.
We can’t say it enough – come on E3.

Would you comment on a recent Metal Gear Solid Integral Podcast? Because, unless the sometimes maddeningly crafty tricksters over at Kojima Productions are yanking our chains, your input might just be enough to save the cult-favorite mech series from rusting away in the scrap heap.
“How many people really want Zone of the Enders a sequel?” Asked the team during its most recent podcast.
“If there’s so many people wanting to see Zone of the Enders, why not put the priority on top, a little further up, you know, but we just want to know,” Konami’s Aki Saito added, stoking the flames.
“Make sure you write your comments and we’ll check your comments out,” he concluded.
Tell your friends. Tell all of them.
Thanks, PS3 Center.

Looks like everyone’s favorite psycho, Jigsaw, is back from the videogame graveyard thanks to a quick rescue by Konami, says Variety.
A Konami deal with Lionsgate Films will see the Saw game released this fall when Saw 6 comes out in theaters, reports the site.
The title was seemingly destined for death when Brash when out of business last November.
This just goes to show that you can’t keep a a good sicko down.

In an interview with 1UP, Big Boss’ papa Hideo Kojima expressed his great hope to finally be free from the MGS series; and then proceeded to sigh his way through a few details on – you guessed it – MGS5.
“I have three concepts for MGS5 already,” he said. “What would be ideal for me with MGS5, though, is that we don’t do those. If the team picks one of those concepts, I have to get involved again, which I don’t want to do.”
“There are already so many good ideas from the staff, so if we select one of those, that would be really good. At that point I could really rely on them and take the step back to be the producer, which is the ideal situation, I think.”
Will he? Won’t he? Would you rather see a heartbroken Kojima churn out another work of staggering genius, or something New And Different from his team?

Konami’s to release a PS2 version of Silent Hill Origins following “enormous success” as a PSP title, says this press release. The horror game is a prequel to all the other Silent Hill titles, following “trouble truck driver” Travis Grady as he blunders into torture town and can’t find his way out again. Apparently the PS2 version includes a ‘Cineractive System’ over the PSP game which allows you to “face down” monsters, with the control system changing with each beast you come across.
Sounds snazzy. Another reason to hang on to your PS2, then.

Kotaku’s got its hands on the first 32 pages of the Castlevania movie screenplay, and has kindly posted them on the internet. The film was in production but put on hold due to the US writer strike in December.

So says this. If teh internets are to be believed, an Asian version is slated for March 18 release for $29.99 and will contain all previous MGS titles, including the Substance and Substinence versions of the latter two. No confirmation – or otherwise – from Konami as yet, but we’ll let you know when there is.

It’s only the quality that’s bad. The game looks cool, as you’ll see if you squint your way through the video below. Metal Gear Online’s a bit of an unknown quanity at the moment, with only a handful of shots and videos released since the title was announced last July. This new movie shows a lengthy gameplay session of Snake-alikes in rather hectic stealth mode, apparently taken from the recent Japanese beta test, with what looks like the full 16 players using scopes, hand-to-hand combat and all the other features you’ve already seen in the MGS4 videos and playtests against real opponents.
See for yourself. Metal Gear Online is a stand alone product from MGS4 and has no release date as yet.
