Hideo Kojima Hints At A New Metal Gear Game

29 07 2008

A brief interview with Hideo Kojima at Variety isn’t so much full of megatons – he hasn’t read much Haruki Murakami but he does enjoy Phillip Dick and Kurt Vonnegut – as it is with some insights into the supposed “end” of his Metal Gear Solid series.

Kojima shares some of his thought process on the creation of “Old Snake” – “I made him this way because of the unique characteristics of the game medium … he represents the players themselves because of the interactive nature of games” – as well as teasing what we may be able to expect from “a new Snake.” Kojima says, “If there ever were to be a new Snake (might have a different name), he will be a Snake for a new era.” No, we’re not sure what that means either, but it gives us great satisfaction in knowing that Kojima probably does.

Personally, I’d love to see this great franchise expand.  It’s one of a few games that Sony has exclusively (currently) and one of their main system selling games.
