Default Kojima Productions: Do you really want Zone of the Enders 3?

http://www.ps3center.net/news/2777/k...-the-enders-3/

Quote:
Though luminary game designer Hideo Kojima's most prominent franchise is the Metal Gear Solid franchise, his anime-inspired mech series, Zone of the Enders, has a special place in the hearts of many gamers. The series has been on a 6 year hiatus, and the chances of another entry into the franchise is questionable, despite the success of both the spinoff GameBoy games and the the anime series.

However, it looks like their may still be a chance for a third Zone of the Enders title. In the latest episode of the Metal Gear Solid Integral podcast, the crew at Kojima Productions talk extensively about the franchise. They know that Zone of the Enders is a popular series amongst the diehard Kojima fans, but they question "How many people really want Zone of the Enders a sequel?", putting emphasis on the casual gamers, rather than the hardcore ones. The discussion ends with Aki Saito saying "if there's so many people wanting to see Zone of the Enders, why not put the priority on top, a little further up, you know, but we just want to know.", encouraging listeners to "make sure you write your comments and we'll check your comments out".

So if you or someone you know wants to see a Zone of the Enders 3, make sure you let KJP know here!
Kojima Productions becoming as bad as SE for teasing their fanbase?

So what was wrong with it? Oh btw, I love Wizards, not sure if you've ever heard of it, but I got a DVD copy of it that I tend to watch fairly regularly.

It was just a clunky and visually boring game. It had a very bland level design. The sequel is miles ahead of the first...and I can tell that from looking at the videos. It found its "style".

Yea, I've seen and studied Wizards. One of my personal favorites of his. Bakashi is an interesting artist/filmmaker. His films aren't particularly well put together...usually a mess in the narrative department. However, he has such an honesty about everything, and style that whatever faults are there are made unimportant.

Wizards
Coonskin (AKA Street Fight)
Heavy Traffic
Fire and Ice

Those are probably his best. Though, I enjoy all of his work. He's just not for everyone.

Very cool. The only one I've seen from that list other than Wizards is Fire and Ice, and I just loved that movie. I haven't seen it since it's theatrical release though.
