Hideo Kojima Smacks Down Rumors, Spreads Disappointment Ahead of E3

Don't expect Metal Gear Solid 5 next month. Maybe he'll just skip to Metal Gear Solid 6.

I've run out of SNAAAAAAKE jokes.

Let's get right to the point. Andriasang was listening to the latest Kojima Productions podcast, wherein Metal Gear designer Hideo Kojima responded to some of the biggest questions about him and E3.

Metal Gear Solid 5 at E3? Nope.

Kojima at Microsoft's conference? No, sir.

NGP getting a port of Metal Gear Solid 4? Scratch that off the list of contenders.

How about seeing any Metal Gear Solid: Rising multiplayer? Uh-uh.

Kojima answered a few more questions, the rest on the what-are-you-talking-about side.

Kojima Productions will have some "surprises" at Konami's pre-E3 press conference next week, so while today's "news" crosses out some of what we don't know, it doesn't answer much at all.

And so it goes.

Good. I love Metal Gear but I'm tired of it. 

Posted by BulletproofMonk

I really hope he would just announce Zone of the Enders 3, but that's never going to happen.

Posted by Tesla

I want to see a new Snatcher or Policenauts.

Posted by IBurningStar

Zone of the Metal Gear Enders. It's coming. Believe that.

Edited by MattyFTM

I'm hoping it's going to be Kabushiki Baibai Trainer Kabutore 3D. Everyone is hyped for Kojima announcing a something and it ends up being a new version of his japan only stock market trading game. That would be funny.

MGS 4 on 360.
 
But that issue is so beaten to death already that I question the impact of such an announcement.

@IBurningStar: Personally, I'm hoping for Snatcher Zone of the Metal Enders
Posted by Winternet

It's the partnership with Swery. That's the surprise.

Yep. I also hope they'll make the translation a mess again, because, I'm pretty sure I'd enjoy ZOE2 about a half as much if lines such as "RAGH YOU KILLED MY PALS YOU DEVIL " weren't commonplace.

Everybody knows how much of a damn liar Kojima is, so just take whatever he's saying and turn it around.

Posted by Maajin

I would buy HD versions of Twin Snakes, MGS2 and MGS3. Also, MGS4 with trophies.

Posted by AmericanNinja

No MGS 5. Thats the key word. MGS 1,2 & 3 remake will be announced for PS3.

Posted by mnzy

He didn't say anything about Platinum Games developing MGS:Rising. I take that as a "yes" and be happy.

Posted by ThePhantomnaut

Multiplayer? I just wanna see Rising in general.

Posted by Cubroso

Why worry about Rising multiplayer? What about Rising proper?

Posted by Cynic04

He forgot to add that Santa isn't real and everyone dies.

Yep, give it break for a bit. He should leave Rising completely to the new guys and then move on to something new. Although it looks like Konami might have killed his something new if that twitter post recently was any indication.
Posted by Homeslice

No one asked about possible crossover Snatchnauts? Wasted opportunity.

Edited by Liv

Zone of the Enders E (I'm doing that thing, that MW3-thing, where I switch E's with 3's - and vice verse).

Posted by PapaMozano

I'd be happy to see Peace Walker on PS3. I'd bet there is a good chance that will happen. 

Posted by ezdude

Doesn't Kojima own his own studio? He should start working on his own project already, maybe he's doing that hopefully.

Posted by Toxin066

I'm a little bit relieved to know Rising won't have multiplayer.

Posted by bucky

I'm calling it-- Sunny gets her own Cooking Mama-esque spin off where you make eggs.

Yes. Me too. MGS4 port for the 360 would be nice too (yeah I know it's not going to happen, but...) :)
Posted by JackSukeru

I should replay MGS 4 sometime, to get an updated perspective on it. 
 
I hope we get a new Zone of the Enders game some day.

Posted by PenguinDust

Metal Gear Solid: Rising coming to Nintendo's new system.  That will be the "big" reveal.  *Yawn*

Posted by bartok

Does it make me a bad person that I would still go crazy for  a surprise Metal Gear Solid 5 announcement?  Personally I hope the surprise is a relaunch of the Snatcher franchise.

Posted by Deusoma

More on Rising's multiplayer is an odd thing to predict, given that no one has ever said that it even might have multiplayer. Considering the game revolves around a one-hit-kill mechanic, I can't imagine it would be a terribly satisfying deathmatch experience anyway.

Posted by HydraHam

Surprise will be Peace Walker HD for PS3 and MGS 1-2-3 HD bundle

Yes... Kojima, make it happen! 
Posted by aidros

How about ANYTHING on MGS: Rising?...Please?...hello?

Posted by AuthenticM

He also said that he was planning something big for MGS' 25th anniversary next year.

Edited by crusader8463

Fingers still crossed for a PS3, and or PC, Zone of Enders game! A guy can dream dam it!

 God dammit, WE MUST BELIEVE MY BROTHER! I haven not given up on seeing ZOE3...although I get the feeling Kojima gets his kicks by disappointing us, so I guess I'm expecting to be dropped kicked in the face.
Posted by Ezekeilpurger

Snatcher reboot, calling it.... :[

Posted by shiro11

Already gave up on ever seeing ZOE 3

Posted by MmaFanQc

A new ZOE game would be awesome.

Posted by Beaudacious

So then who cares if none of those are realities? No multilayer even? Hasn't that game been in development since mgs4.

Posted by Hiashi

This just makes ZOE3 all the more likely! That would be my game of the show.
Posted by Beforet

So, something not MGS related? I can be into that.

Posted by Kyle

At this point I've really had my fill of Metal Gear for the next few years, especially since we already have Rising on the way. I'm ready to see something else from Kojima. No less excited.

You mean Zone of the 3nders?

Come oooonnnnn Zone of Enders

Posted by Phoenix87

First no valve, and now this.

Posted by Jasta

I consider myself smacked down. How disappointing. 

Posted by ParaParaKing

He said countless times, that he is moving on, but always returns to MGS. Let's see what he Doreen at E3!

Posted by Krakn3Dfx

Metal Gear Kart Guardian Adventures, starring baby versions of all your favorite MGS characters, featuring over 7 individual racing tracks, wacky attacks, and mini games like 'Hide'N'GoBox" and "SnakeDiapieChangeRace"

Posted by Xpgamer7

This is what I heard when reading the article. 
What? no. But I... no. Can't you? no. But then what? no.
