Kojima Talks About His Next Project

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is almost out on store shelves. And while the project still needs some final work done, Kojima is already pondering on his next title.

Thankfully, Kojima decided to share his thoughts over his official twitter account about his next title.  “I’m thinking about the casting for my next title. The project plan still hasn’t reached a detailed level, but everything is advancing simultaneously in my head. Title, game design, story, characters, setting research, the mecha that appear, casting, graphic direction, sound, beginning and ending, the major story sequences. It comes together naturally in my head

He later tweeted again saying that his next project might be a bit risky.

The next project will challenge a certain type of taboo. If I mess up, I’ll probably have to leave the industry. However, I don’t want to pass by avoiding that. I turn 47 this year. It’s been 24 years since I started making games. Today, I got an ally who would happily support me in that risk. Although it’s just one person. For a start, it’s good.

Of course at this point, no one really knows exactly what the project will be except for Kojima himself. But apparently, some of his fans have been jokingly suggesting a Metal Gear Solid dating sim.

Some one was nice enough to make a mock up design which you can see after the jump.

  1. Calling it now, Zone of the Enders 3 for the PS3. He has stated in the past that he will eventually make a ZOE3, and he used the word “mecha” in this interview, so that could have been a possible hint.
