‘Project Ogre’ meaning clarified by Kojima

Hideo Kojima has moved to clarify the meaning behind his mysterious Project Ogre — or Oni Project — Andriasang reports.

A much mentioned topic by Kojima on Twitter over the last year, the name ‘Oni’, referring to demons or ogres in Japanese, had led fans to theorize about what exactly the Oni that Kojima has been referring to is.

While he refuses to reveal what the Oni Project is, Kojima has stated that fans should consider ‘Oni’ as a literal feature of his title, suggesting that Oni will physically feature in the game.

Having revealed no more, it is left to the fan to speculate on whether Oni will feature as a protagonist or in an antagonistic role.
