Metal Gear's Kojima Wants to Adapt Jiro Matsumoto's Joshi Kōhei Manga Into Game
posted on by Ko Ransom
Game developer Hideo Kojima posted an image on Tuesday of Jiro Matsumoto's Joshi Kōhei manga — along with the comment that the title is the manga that he would most like to turn into a game using his company's Fox Engine software engine. The story is set in New Tokyo in Dimensional Century 2011 and follows Joshi Kōhei — giant robots that happen to take the form of high school girls. (Matsumoto launched the series in real-life in Shinchosha's Monthly Comic Bunch magazine in 2011.)
Matsumoto's manga Velveteen & Mandala was released in English by the publisher Vertical in 2011.
