Hideo Kojima has dropped a major hint suggesting that his next title may turn out to be none other than Zone of the Enders 3.
Writing on his Twitter in regards to Kojima Productions next game, the celebrated developer had the following to say on the matter: "I’m thinking about the casting for my next title."
“The project plan still hasn’t reached a detailed level, but everything is advancing simultaneously in my head."
“Title, game design, story, characters, setting research, the mecha that appear, casting, graphic direction, sound, beginning and ending, the major story sequences. It comes together naturally in my head.”
The key word in Kojima’s ramblings is, of course, Mecha. Just in case you are out of the loop, Zone of the Enders and its sequel centre around humans piloting hulking robots known as Orbital Frames, with both titles fitting snugly in to the Mecha genre. Zone of the Enders 3 confirmed? Not quite. Is it looking promising? Yes.
Stay tuned for more info as we get it.

I loved ZOE: 2nd runner

I really hope it is ZOE 3. The series has been one of my favorites!

ZoE is great (the SRPG for GBA is awesome as well btw)
Sadly "Mecha" can basically appear in any given scenario in Japan so who knows whether we'll get to play ZoE3 anytime soon.

He doesn't mention any mecha, he just says mechs and I bet that he means game mechanics by that. Check that: http://www.twitlonger.com/show/r76os

Might be, and might not be. Either ZoE 3, or a brand new franchise?

He's giving the fans what they want... making up for Rising.................. =D

meh. i never played zone of enders. i doubt it's another MGS game though

@8 Well if you've never played ZOE, then you should DEFINITELY check it out. ZOE 1 and 2 are among some of the best looking games on the PS2. This series is SERIOUSLY underated.

or it could be another metal gear because what are the gears, but mechs?

Maybe Mecha is Japanese for Metal Gear? Nah, another Zone of the Enders will probably be more than good enough. Anyway, has anyone noticed that no matter what PS game you search for on Metacritic Edge is among the lowest 5. I sure hope EA manages to put them out of business, because they gave Zone of the Enders 3 40/100! Down with independent opinions!

maybe he's making the next COD or Sonic? Although since he asked would anyone be interested if he made ZOE3 and he's considering cast and he mentioned mecha - which MGS already has, presumably he's talking about ZOE3 unless he's considering making something new which he has no idea if anyone will be interested in it, and since everyone would like ZOE3 it's hard to imagine it would be anything else, so yeah he's got ideas for his next title, but since he's not making it yet he can't announce it as ZOE

I had more fun with ZOE 1 then 2 though. Hopefully, the third one is better then the first.

who cares about that??! just give us another MGS u gay bastard

Hideo is an arrogant jerk. This post basically says, hey, I have an idea.
Hideo is like a 40 year old NBA star, that doesnt realize he cant play anymore

YAY! best news of the YEAR!
- 8:48pm EDT - April 12th, 2010
Please stay exclusive so we can hear it roar!
- 9:01pm EDT - April 14th, 2010
If it turns out to be at least as good as zoe 2, I'm sold!
