Hideo Kojima: The mastermind behind the Metal Gear Solid series.
My contacts in Japan are revealing that live from the Tokyo Game Show, Hideo Kojima just stated that he might work with Konami and make Metal Gear Solid 5. This isn’t a confirmation by him or Konami, but the fact that it was mentioned means that probably more likely than not, we’ll see an official, numbered game in the franchise somewhere down the road, and that it’s a good chance that Mr. Kojima will be on board the project. If…or rather “when” this eventually becomes official, I’ll have the story. In the meantime we have Metal Gear Solid 3DS to look forward to in early 2011 and Peace Walker (which was once considered to be “5”, but no…it seems like we will eventually get a real “Part 5”).
