Not long ago, Hideo Kojima "promised" us all that a new Zone of the Enders would eventually arrive, but now there's even more news in that respect.
Not surprisingly, there were a great many happy people when this promise hit the Internet in full force, and Kojima has been overwhelmed at the response. Speaking again on the Kojima Productions official blog (translated by Andriasang ), the mastermind seems shocked at how fast the news has spread, and how excited people are. Said Kojima:
"The reaction [to the post] was greater than I'd expected. The comments topped the 100 mark, and the access count reached levels of the Tokyo Game Show time. It was picked up in a variety of places, including the net and press, and spread throughout the world."
Heck, even the guys at Kojima Productions are all amped up! Those who worked on Zone of the Enders 2 (known as Anubis in Japan) have actually come up to Kojima and said things like, "I read your blog…is it true?" and "When are we going to make it…please let me take part in it!" So it seems this came as a surprise to members of his own team, but obviously, Kojima has been thinking about it for some time. And now that he's basically done with Peace Walker and he has more of a backseat role in Rising , why not get started? Let's get a move on, Hideo!
