New Kojima productions game?
What do you think it could be?

So far theyve shown sequences of letters and an image of what appears to be Big Boss and also Raiden.

Recently a strange link has been made to a project/site called "Mask" with music and an animated female mask thats quite gritty and different appearing to Kojima's usual work.

My guess is that the beret and eyepatched "snake" is infact Big Boss during the Outer Haven (MG1) era as the skull on the beret seems to be an updated version of the old skull insignia from MG1 which is of course Outer Haven. Also I dont think that "raiden" is actually Raiden, as he has blue eyes and the man displayed is brown eyed. My guess is that he is perhaps Frank Jaegar as he also has white hair like Raiden. So Im hoping and guessing it could possibly be a remake of the original Metal Gear games ie MG1 & MG2 combined.

SO GUYS! Give me your ideas on what on earth this is all about.

I agree! The white haired man certainly could be Grey Fox. I'm just incredibly happy that a new Kojima project is on the go... But whatever happened to Z.O.E. 3? I heard it was in development, but... Thins have gone very quiet recently!

Z.O.E... A great Kojima work! So tragically under-rated!!

Again old Koji likes to keep us guessing, im just really happy a new game is on the boil. Good thoughts there sire and im inclined to side with you after looking at the pics. The old mg 1 and 2 deserve a reprint they were very superior....not like snakes revenge *the least said about that the better lol*

pknives I really hope its GRAY FOX!!!

I agree with samwhitewolf here, I definately think it's another metal gear game, but I'm not sure about the characters, I'm not going to guese or spectulate because then I might be wrong! lol But off record I think you might be right about the characters as well...

30 May 2009 - 11:5015184
If it's a new Metal Gear game and it has Frank Jaeger/Grey Fox in it I will quite possibly die of happiness.

After playing it, of course.

30 May 2009 - 12:4315188
A remake would what I want, but as we all agree... it will be a cool game either way

30 May 2009 - 13:4815190
im not to sure what to make of grey fox/Raiden thing as its alittle "too" close looking to Raiden and having grey fox remodeled like this would be abit too much of a cop out for Metal Gear, plus the fact that Raiden had tip-ex for blood in MGS4 meaning that a small eye colour change isnt in the realms of oddness.

id love to see a remake of MG1/2 as there where great games and i dont see to much that could be due with the current story line as MGS4 really did round every thing up me story wise past and presant.

also id like to see whos heading up the game its self as Kojima has said many times thats he not making any more Metalgear games (he'll most likely poke his nose in every now and then like on the Acid and Portble ops games)

I reckon it looks too much like raiden to be raiden, kojima likes to mess with people so hopefully it is mr greyfox.

I have no idea what the mask is all about lol.

There are rumours that the story line could be from the big shell to guns of the patriots where sunny gets saved by raiden... only time will tell.

My money right now is the characters being Raiden and Solidus Snake. But we will see. No idea what platform the game is for though. I'm guessing not a big console.

Actually I thought of this yesterday and felt rather stupid for not thinking it before, it seems very possible. It will probably be released for psp or something similar.

It's a nice idea but didnt soildus lose his left eye where the pictures have the person missing the right eye.

Couldn't really be Solidus, as he was President of the united states, working as a puppet for the patriots... not a soldier

Plus, Solidus lost his eye thanks to Raiden in MGS2 after the Harrier fight.

1:29:40 left to go till we get more info *weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee*

YAY! thanks for the link, great news (i sorta feel bad for getting the PS3 just for MGS4 now)

Well, Kojima briefly spoke at E3 on it.

It's going to be on XBOX 360, the full title is Metal Gear Solid; Rising, and it featured Raiden's face on the main splash screen.

In addition, it's tagline is no longer "Tactical Espionage Action". Instead it is now, "Lightning Bolt Action".

Lightning being Raiden.

I'd say it's a game focused on Raiden (possibly with Solidus as Perrin suggests) and will likely be his "rising" to the role of Cyborg Ninja.

Kojima had said before that Raiden is his favourite character, I think Konami convinced him to do another game by suggesting Raiden be the focus.

looking though time lines the only place to have Raiden like pictured is the two years before MGS4


Raiden is captured by the Patriots who keep him in Area 51. They fit him with a cybernetic outfit as part of their Exoskeletal Enhancement project.

Raiden is rescued by Big Mama and Paradise Lost. "

so it wouldnt have Solidus in it as he'd be dead lol.

other then that it would have to fit in after MGS4 in which i hope Big Boss over comes FOXDIE and fights off aging to become his hard assed self and nuts the world back in to shape.

It's not 360 exclusive, as far as I know, or at least according to the very knowledgable LJ community I stalk.


So. Yeah.

02 Jun 2009 - 10:2215305
whatever the story im very excited for this im hoping it has many plot twists and awesome character development, couple that with amazing gamplay as we have come to expect from Mr Kojima

02 Jun 2009 - 15:0215320
Guess I'll have to just remake MG1/MG2 as fan films then! haha

Wonder how long the game will be etc, as there is no way it would be as long or as filled with stuff as MGS 4... as thats 50 gig on Blu Ray and as this may be multi format, they'll have to do it to 9 gig (Xbox)

Unless they work a way around space issues lol

02 Jun 2009 - 16:2815327
but if you take out the cut sceens from MGS4 i thought the game play its self wasnt that long, MGS3 was alot longer in my view,

02 Jun 2009 - 21:0315331
No arguing with that, considering the ending scene for MGS4 runs for... oh, at least an hour.

Anyhow, another link for you:

A PSP exclusive game, centring round Big Boss, called Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, I believe.

03 Jun 2009 - 06:2615338
woot yay and holer lol

looks great and its being directed by Kojima this time ("the first for the psp" as stated on the site)

its the story leading up to the setting up of outer heaven *fan boy screams!*

03 Jun 2009 - 11:2015349
Apparently metal gear solid: rising was a port for the 360 alone but now its confirmed for PS3 and poss PC wich is great news as im sick of getting a will we wont we for releasing mgs4 for 360.

Either way im stoked for it Lightning bolt action away *since Raiden claimed all man points back from mgs 2 since he became a Cyborg*

03 Jun 2009 - 22:5715378
I don't think anyone ever explicitly said it was just for Xbox 360, which was very sneaky of them.

Don't suppose anyone else misses dorky MGS2!Raiden? We've got enough emo, roaring, gruff-voiced badasses as it is.
