Hideo Kojima is currently working on a secret project, known to gamers only as "Ogre Project" or vice versey.

Now, the hardcore Kojima followers have discussed the possible meaning of that title for months and months. Finally, the man himself has decided to comment on the meaning of the "Ogre" part; or as it's read in Japanese, "Oni."

According to Andriasang citing Kojima's Twitter page, "Oni" should be understood literally. The actual translation doesn't have to be ogre, though; it could also be demon or devil. However, Kojima didn't elaborate further so this is the only information we've got at this point. So we don't know if demons will be part of the subject matter, of we actually are in control of an "Oni."

That being said, we're pretty sure it has absolutely nothing to do with the game, Oni , which released early on in the PS2's life cycle. How many of you remember it? It wasn't bad.

"It wasn't bad."

It wasn't necessarily good either ūüėČ

Whatever it is, if Kojima's involved, you can count me in.

Wasn't Oni a Bungie title?

But I thought we saw screenshots of a war-like scenario. The two ideas don't seem to gel, unless the screenshots were for the MGS that was sort of unofficially announced the other day and this remains something completely separate from that. Or maybe your main character is like Dog Soldiers and can transform and just go bonkers with all sorts of bizarro skills.

I have no idea what to think anymore. Just give me the ZOE collection and info and stop with the teasing. I MUST KNOW!

P.S. WAIT!!!! It's something to do with Castlevania, isn't it?

Lawless,
Geobaldi is correct, it's a Bungie/Rockstart title.

A little info on Oni…..

Oni was about a dark future, an uncertain past & nobody left to trust.

The story's about Konoko who's an elite "Crimes Task Force" agent fighting the evil syndicate but things aren't always what they seem.
She's haunted by unknown demons of her past & the truth threatens to send her over the edge.

But Konoko aims to master a hybrid of hand-to-hand combat & cutting edge weaponry to free herself of all the evils that's surrounding her.

Thanks Saint. Sounds interesting. I think I'll have to keep an eye out if I ever happen to stumble across a copy in my travels.

Maybe it's "Oni"musha? I know its a capcom title but it would be interesting if someone brought it back, especially if its Kojima.

If Hideo is directing, I'm there on day one. Don't care what it is. Hope we see something at E3.

Oh man, now I wanna play Oni again. Thanks a lot Ben.

There's no point in guessing as it's a new IP, I'd just like to see him try a new genre/setting, bring some magic to that.

I brainfarted on the game, my PS2 was brand spanking new and I didn't know that pressing the thumbstick down was another button. Had a lot of trouble getting around

Yeah! I remember doing that in another PS2 game, it was a car combat game, I don't remember the name of it though. It kept saying to hit L3 or R3 and I was like " There is no R3 and L3! This controller is broken!" Then I went to the store and I said how come this controller doesn't have any L3 and R3 buttons? And he told me you had to push in the joysticks, and at that time I felt really stupid I didn't even think to push in the joysticks at all. Lol

Yeah i remember it and i had fun with it .

Anyway , i don t know about you but when i hear oni , i immediately think about onimusha .

So rare to have a game series where all the games are pretty much as fun as all the others .Really wish they would make another one already .
