When the mask appeared at both the teaser site for Hideo Kojima's mystery game and the Kojima Productions Konami site, the gaming community scratched their collective heads and pondered…what did it mean?
Well, when we first saw it, Arnold said he believed it was probably the little-known Lords of Shadow game that Konami is publishing. The only strange part about this scenario is that it isn't a Kojima Productions title, although Kojima himself has talked about it in the past and is clearly involved in some capacity. This is why the mask logo appears at both the aforementioned sites. Now, Examiner.com has it "on good authority" that our theory was indeed correct; it's not a project called Mask , it really is Lords of Shadow . You're probably unfamiliar with the game at this point but have no fear: it's very likely that Kojima and Konami will reveal more of the game at E3 next week. In fact, it seems inevitable. And if you're wondering, Shadow currently holds a tentative 2010 release date and will be available on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Any and all questions pertaining to the game's style, setting and gameplay should wait; most all of them will receive answers next week, anyway.
It's difficult to clarify a rumor with an unofficial statement but we say it's about 95% likely that what we say here is true. Official, no, but still extremely plausible.
