The illustrious Hideo Kojima has told Famitsu (translated by Kotaku) that he may unveil his latest game at next year’s Tokyo Game Show.
"Until the end of this year, I have my hands full with Metal Gear Online," Kojima said. "But at next year's show, I think it's okay that I should be able to announce something." The old tease.
The Metal Gear Solid creator also commented at length on the state of Japanese development versus the west. He suggested that the western approach of bringing together and funding a number of high-profile, highly talented creators is something Japan could learn from.
"If you honestly compare Japanese games with Western ones, Japan has lost," Kojima concluded. Music to Microsoft's ears, no doubt.

"If you honestly compare Japanese games with Western ones, Japan has lost,"
As much as it hurts me to say it,he's right,if japanese devs like SE and Capcom keep developing games like they are now,Japan has indeed lost.See,the thing is now we are starting to see japanese developers trying to appeal to the western market,which hurts the thing that made japanese games so great,their originality,but all is not lost however,i mean,look at Sega and Yakuza 3,SCEJ and Patapon,Tecmo and Quantum Theory(the teaser was AWESOME).As long as they stay true to their heritage japanese games will ALWAYS be better.

It could be the next MGS5 announced for next year TGS, hope it does.

@2 So right. When you have to appeal to the masses for money, you stop being innovative because you don't have to be. That's not just for video games. That applies to music, movies, etc. Beverly Hills Chihuahua is the number one movie in the U.S. right now two weeks running. People still tune in to watch American Idol every year. Westerners are really easy to please because they are dumb.

MGS5 or ZOTE3 already
- 2:33am EDT - October 14th, 2008
I bet its going to be Metal Gear Solid 5 or Zone of the Enders 3
- 2:41am EDT - October 14th, 2008
Well that will make TGS '09 a lot better right there. '08 was horrible.
- 4:02am EDT - October 14th, 2008
psn id: gingo.... will be good to see what he has got going on behind the scenes, i'm thinking ZOE3 prob
- 4:25am EDT - October 14th, 2008
I think he would announce another Zone of Ender
- 5:06am EDT - October 14th, 2008
Mgs 5 will be multiplataform.
- 5:13am EDT - October 14th, 2008
I highly doubt MGS5 would be a multiplataform
- 5:25am EDT - October 14th, 2008
I'm thinking it will be his completely new game that no one but him knows about. ZOE3 would be tight, but I'm feeling that he's going to go to something brand spanking new to show the world what a true japanese developer can do so that way "Japan has lost" will turn into "Japan (also read "Kojima") has won.

its probably a new innovative FPS, who knows!
But if i hear any noob say: "MGS5 FTW!!!11!" or "oooo!! i hope i can haz mgs5!! i hope it is!!!11 ooo!!1"
I'll say NO, its not mgs5 you r-tard. And quit asking its still not. Fanboy death threats doesnt get to Kojima anymore :P.

it's probably MGS 5 or it's going to be the remake of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: solid snake. kojima never really explained that in the game. i would like a remake of that into one game some how. this will be awesome to see another Metal gear game next year. even the movie will be nice if it does come out too. i will definetly pre-order it in full pay. i hope he does work on MGO and fix that thing. i want to play online at a gamestore i go to. it's not cool when you can't sign in but, when you can sign into cod 4 in like a second.

ill tell you this hes done with Metal Gear and hes probably going to work on ZOE or a completely new IP doesnt matter which one it is cuz ill buy it anyway
- 5:10pm EDT - October 14th, 2008
Some of u are correct, it will be that all new IP he was talking about a month or so ago, he said something along the lines of he didnt know whether or not people would like his idea, but I'm guessing the man underestimated his brilliance and got some good feedback. If MGS5 goes multi, it will be far enough off to fit on the Crapbox 720, but people will still never forget that he stuck with Sony through this current debacle exclusive-wise. Whatever the case, 3rd party exclusives aren't dead, thats just a rumor bouncing around because M$ buys them all. We actually have plenty of them coming this gen. We shall then see where loyalties lie.
