Kojima – “There’s a lot more I can do” than just Metal Gear Solid
Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes is set to be one of the best Metal Gear Solid games ever released running on the brand new Fox engine. However, creator Hideo Kojima says the game will introduce new elements that will eventually become a new IP. Hit the link for the direct quotes.
In an interview with EGM, Kojima said he doesn’t want to always be recognized as “the Metal Gear guy”
“I’m often misinterpreted,” Kojima said. “I’ve always said that I want to work on original properties, but Metal Gear offers plenty of benefits. The Fox Engine, for example, took a lot of time and money [to create]; we were only able to develop it because it was intended for the next Metal Gear. In the next game, I’m introducing concepts intended for entirely new intellectual properties using the Metal Gear brand.
“I’ll admit that I hope my future endeavours are thought of as ‘works by Hideo Kojima’ rather than ‘from the creator of Metal Gear. I haven’t really shown the world what else I might be capable of yet. This may sound pretentious, but I don’t like being thought of as ‘the Metal Gear guy.’ There’s a lot more I can do.”
Metal Gear Solid is one of my favorite franchises with Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots being my favorites. Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes looks to be just as good and I can’t wait to see what Kojima has up his sleeve for the next 10 years or so.
