Could Zone of the Enders finally be returning? The cult hit series is getting remastered in HD next year, but a true new entry hasn’t been seen in some time. Now Hideo Kojima, the series mastermind and long time teaser has dropped a rather large hint that Z.O.E. could be making a comeback via his Twitter account.
Talking about Kojima Production’s artist, Takahiro Omori, Kojima said: “Found this on Omori-kun’s desk. What’s this?” then included a link to a picture showing one of the Oribtal Flames models from the game, with the Z.O.E. logo behind it. Next to the logo is the same three letters reversed, which looks a whole lot like 3DS to us. The periods have been removed too and – honestly – why would Kojima tweet “What’s this?” about some he very much knows about.
A later tweet read: “At Kore-P’s desk. What’s this? No, I know this,” then showing a picture with the terms Z.O.E. and Anubis written out. The Metal Gear mastermind may have lost his touch of subtlety, but we’re no less excited to see what he has in store for us.
It seems like its a question of when rather than what, then. Are we looking to TGS for a full reveal?
