Metal Gear Solid 3D and Zone of the Enders HD in early 2012

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.

Zone of the Enders 3 “Sort of Pushed to the Back” says Kojima

Not too long ago, we heard that Kojima was “really considering” developing Zone of the Enders 3, and got a surprising amount of response.  It seemed like it was going to be only a matter of time till we got some sort of announcement. Unfortunately, that no longer seems to be the case.

During a Q&A session, Kojima “sort of pushed to the back” due to “various things.” One of Konami’s producers, Kenichiro Imaizumi, said that in order to make progress on the title they would have to stop working on a current project.

So Zone of the Enders fans might have to wait quite a bit longer till we see another title.

Hideo Kojima says reaction to Zone of the Enders 3 "…was greater than I'd expected"

A little while back ago Hideo Kojima said that he and his development team had a great interest in making a new Zone of the Enders title for next generation systems. Apparently the series has quite a few fans as the reaction seems to have turned out pretty big.

The reaction [to the post] was greater than I’d expected. The comments topped the 100 mark, and the access count reached levels of the Tokyo Game Show time. It was picked up in a variety of places, including the net and press, and spread throughout the world.” he also says that he has heard rumors saying that after the post prices for used copies for Zone of the Enders 2 went up in Japan.

Apparentley the intrest isn’t only from the consumer though. Those from inside of Kojima’s production are also showing interest. He says that often former members of  the Zone of the Ender’s development team have been asking him if its true and telling him they want to be a part of the project. One employee went so far to make a little display at his desk (as seen in the image) that has a sign that says “ANUBIS” which is the Japanese name for the second title.

Kojima’s reaction to all of this? “Please wait a little more.
