Hideo Kojima has said those who enjoy action games such as The Division and Uncharted will be able to play his new title "smoothly."


Kojima's new action game should appeal to The Division and Uncharted players

Speaking in an interview with Famitsu, via Hachima, Kojima said his new triple-A title is an "amazing game" and contains "some parts which are very new."

“I won’t say that it’s an open-world title, but those that enjoy playing today’s AAA titles such as The Division and Uncharted will be able to play it smoothly," he said. "Some parts are very new, so I’ll need to experiment with it.

"When it gets announced some may think that it’s not as way-out as they had expected, but I’m sure they’ll understand once they play it."

Kojima said he's brainstorming the character, game system and plot "equally" and is pleased Sony trusted him with such a big concept.

He went on to say the publisher is providing him the freedom to create what he wants, and was trusting enough not to require a "Hollywood type" presentation beforehand.

At present, his company Kojima Productions has a temporary office and a website set up, along with part of the company logo. There are plans to create a full bodied image.

“I can’t say [more about it] yet, but the secret is found in the logo," said Kojima. "The whole body [of the logo] actually looks super cool, and we’re planning on making it into a figure.”

In late 2015, it was announced Kojima had sighed a deal with Sony to develop a PlayStation 4 title after his employment contract with Konami expired.

Thanks, Siliconera.
