Kojima: Project: Ogre Game Will Deal With Taboo Issues

posted on by Joseph First
Hideo Kojima says upcoming work is unlikely to be on Wii U due to platform issues

As his Metal Gear Solid series was inducted into the Smithsonian's Art of Video Games exhibit, Hideo Kojima spoke about his upcoming game Project: Ogre and some of his ambitions for it. "The game I'm working on right now is dealing with quite a few issues that are pretty delicate and taboo…. I'm not sure if they'll end up being in the final product or not, but that's something that I want to continue to strive for.” Kojima added that he wants to spotlight several real world issues in the upcoming Project: Ogre. As Project: Ogre is still under wraps, he declined to say more.

Kojima did however note that Project: Ogre would not likely be making an appearence on Nintendo's Wii U. "The way the player interacts with Wii U is very different than any other device out there. So if I were to make a game for the Wii U, it would have to be a unique game...I don't want any misconceptions that the Fox Engine is specific to a certain hardware platform, because it's not. The way we envision it, it's more this platform that isn't mounted to a particular hardware.”
