Hideo Kojima Unsure If Japan Can Compete In Current Gaming Market

One of the saddest thing to emerge this generation has been the decline in diversity

The cryptic gaming visionary has casually dropped a couple of screenshots showing off the developer's new Fox Engine — one of which is apparently from a prototype of his upcoming game, Project Ogre.

Kojima Productions Doesn't Have Enough Staff To Make Zone Of The Enders 3

For as long as there have been video games, fans have demanded Zone Of The Enders 3

Alright, so maybe it's not quite that extreme, but few would deny that the next entry in Hideo Kojima's mech combat series is not heavily anticipated.

Hideo Kojima Reveals The Truth About Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

If you're willing to ignore The Last Of Us, the reannouncement of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was easily the biggest story at this year's VGAs

The challenged title was first announced back in 2009, before heading into hiding for a good couple of years. That's because staff at Kojima Productions lost sight of the project, and the game was promptly (and secretly) cancelled. But the game was..
