Kojima Reveals Metal Gear Solid PSP

Next Generation is reporting that Hideo Kojima has revealed plans to release a PSP Metal Gear Solid game in Japan mid-way through 2006.

Codenamed Metal Gear Solid B.D., it’s being touted as a completely new iteration of the series; not a remake. Speaking to Famitsu, Kojima said, “It’s totally new.”

Somewhat enigmatically, he adds, “Even though it’s only on PSP, it’s going to be pretty amazing. It might be too new for people. I don’t even know if they’re going to sell this thing. I mean, I find it interesting myself, though who knows what people will think of it. Really, though — it’s just a normal game. Only with one little thing radically different about it.”

Konami already publishes card-based games in the Metal Gear Acid series. It’s been known for a few months that Kojima’s team has been working on a secret new PSP game. In a blog entry back in October he wrote, “It will feature a completely new system. We have to learn if it’ll be accepted. We’ll have to create a prototype and play-test. It’ll have a system that’s different from traditional games. That’ll be its selling point.”

I can only say – AWESOME!

    I have to admit, this immediately caught my interest.

    As long as it is Kojima, I am happy. I cannot really recall any game he was involved in that I did not immensly enjoy. The first Zone of the Enders could have been better, but they fixed all the problems in Zone of the Enders 2

    When Kojima says it’s going to be different, you can bet your @$$ it will be. I don’t own a PSP, but I’m still excited for this one.

    Is it going to be another card based game or not?

    well what would be the point in releasing 2 card-based games then releasing a ‘solid’ game…only for it to be another card game?!?!

    Just so you know it, it may very well be a interactive comic thing.
