Hideo Kojima unloaded a nice bit of information at his Tokyo Game Show presentation. Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D is planned to release in early 2012. A holiday release would have been fantastic, but this works as well. No official release date as of now.
Another series created by Hideo Kojima is Zone of the Enders. For those who have no idea what Zone of the Enders is, it’s a futuristic Action game focused around mecha combat. In short, fighting robots in space. Sounds pretty awesome right? The first two games Zone of the Enders and Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner are Playstation 2 releases, and it even has it’s own anime that’s 26 episodes long. The games are pretty rare and hard to find as of now. The HD releases are expected to hit shelves early to mid 2012, with the anime box set coming sometime in the summer.
Who knows! But if you have been following Kojima on twitter today, he has had a rather curious day.
“I’m having an early lunch for some reason,” was followed by, “I’m having a cappuccino with Jiro [Oishi, Kojima Production’s PR manager] for some reason.” Sounds like your everyday tweet’n, right? Then he follows these statements later with “I’ve readied a complete Snatcher set for some reason,” posting a picture of the PC engine version of Snatcher, complete with the console in the background and, for some reason, a copy of Castlevania Rondo of Blood under the copy of Snatcher.
Very curious indeed. This could mean absolutely nothing, or it could mean absolutely something. Who knows! Kojima always has a lot on his plate, literally oho-ho-ho! You can find his lunch, coffee, and Snatcher images after the jump.

Last week I mentioned that Hideo Kojima and Suda 51 were working with 5pb on a new adventure game as part of 5pb’s Science Triogy following Chaos Head and Stein’s Gate (both of which have animé adaptations). Today, despite the game apparantly only being 1% complete, a trailer for the game has been released making people believe that the game is going along faster than people expected. The scenario writer for the previous two games will also return in this undertaking and while a platform has not been confirmed yet, more details are expected to be announced at Comiket. The trailer in question comes after the jump.

An Adventure Title between Kojima and Suda51 isn’t exactly something that has come out of the blue. After the release of No More Heroes and Metal Gear Solid 4, Rumours of “Project S” started to circle after Suda, Kojima and Mikami were interviewed and Kojima brought up Project S which was supposed to be a sequel to Snatcher that he would collaborate on with Suda51. In the end, this turned out to be a radio drama although there were even more rumours of something else being in the works. Now it turns out that they ARE working on an adventure game after all along with the CEO of 5pb: Chiyomaru Shikura (They ported a lot of CAVE games such as Ketsui and Ibara as well as creating the visual novels Chaos Head and Stein’s Gate). See more after the jump.
