Kojima Confirms Work on a New Game in a New Franchise

The ever prolific Hideo Kojima has confirmed that he's not only working on the new Metal Gear titles, but something he's "been wanting to make," a new game in a new franchise.

There's no rest for Hideo Kojima. Even after he says he's not going to work on any more Metal Gear games, someone gets something wrong and the master duck rider needs to step in and take the reins. PSP title Peace Walker isn't the only thing currently on Kojima's plate, however. In addition to that game, Kojima and his team are working on a few other projects, including one that's a brand new IP.

Apparently Kojima Productions is currently in the process of building some new technology for "the next Metal Gear or the next new series" they're working on. So what exactly are these games? "First of all I can name Metal Gear Solid Rising - that's going to be on the preparation list," Kojima said. "Also there's a new title that we haven't announced that I've wanted to make for a long time - that's on the list as well. And also a couple of other new titles we're preparing now."

Other new titles, eh? "The one that I said that I've been wanting to make - this is a new franchise and a new title," Kojima explained. "For the other couple of titles, it could be something that you always wanted to have. It could be, or it could be something else."

Well, that's really not vague at all. Something I "always wanted to have?" I always wanted to have a duck-riding simulator, well, that and Zone of the Enders 3.

You people really really really really like that image of Kojima sitting on the traumatized looking duck huh?

Anyway, "a title he's been wanting to make for a long time". what could that be?

A brand new IP from Hideo Kojima?

Something tells me it's going to be about cute little ducks and nuclear warfare.
Actually, I'd want to play a game like that.

Think about it. If you had your picture taken while sitting on a duck, and it actually ended up looking good, wouldn't you want people to use it all the time? Hell, I'd put it on my passport :D

If it's not ZoE 3 or Policenauts, then he's dead to me.

He's already meant to be working on Project S(natcher?) with Suda 51, let's see something on that front as well.

Here's hoping for a new ZoE.

I bet its a new "game" where you have to press only one button once during the entire 20+ hours of "gameplay".

In other words its gona be a one big freaking cutscene.

I never tire of that picture.

That picture never gets old.

Yes, cross your fingers.

Metal Gear Solid 5- Revenge of teh Cutscenes, I'm ready for ye.

The best of all would be if he left Castlevania alone, and went to rape some other series instead. :(

But ah well, he said a new franchise, how the hell can it be a sequel? Fools.

Personally he needs to do a movie, than he'll finally achive his perfect game play to cut scene ratio.

I'm still looking forward to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.

Press X to go to the Next Chapter, voted game of the year by Gamespot for 2010.

I see what you sneaky cats did thar ^_^

Anyways, I'm glad Kojima is slowly slipping away from Metal Gear. But I wish he would just end Metal Gear entirely instead of risking it fading into mediocrity.

Wait, why is Kojima sitting on a duck?

If he made a duck riding simulator, I'd buy it instantly. Even better idea: You shot pirates riding ninjas.

I bet it's something with nanobots.

Super Mario Gear: Plumbers Of the Patriots. Hey, it could happen. Just look at Metroid Gaiden (the other M). And it's technically a new IP for him to work on.

Hopefully ZoE 3.
