If Hideo Kojima’s recent interview on the European PlayStation blog is any indication, it looks like Metal Gear and Castlevania aren’t the only big titles that the folks at Kojima Productions hope to bring us in the near future. Kojima says it’s only a matter of time before his beloved giant mecha series, Zone of the Enders makes its triumphant return to consoles. “Of course, Kojima Productions has a long list of things we want to bring out, and of course Zone of the Enders is one on the top of the list,” he says. “However, we have to manage staffing and work around projects so it’s not going to be out too soon, but we are really considering it.”
It’s great to see Kojima giving priority to this fan favorite amidst all of the recent Metal Gear hubbub. After all, Zone of the Enders 2 is still regarded as a treasured gem amongst PS2 owners, and rightfully so. With any luck, it seems like we might be hearing about a new addition to this criminally underplayed franchise fairly soon.
