Kojima wants to show next at TGS 2011

But what is it?

Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima wants to unveil his next game at next year's Tokyo Game Show.

"I think it would be nice if next year I can do not just editing, but introduce my own new game (game design, script and direction)," he said on Twitter (reported by Andriasang).

The editing Kojima referred to related to a lengthy TGS trailer for Konami's upcoming action game Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, which you can see below.

So, what do we know about Kojima's next?

In July collaborator Chiyomaru Shikura - boss of Japanese media company 5pb – said the cut scene lover was working on an adventure game, and that it's the third entry in "a conceptual science series". Sounds like Zone of Enders 3, doesn't it?

All Kojima has said is his next game will "challenge a certain type of taboo".

"The Taboo is a project for high spec machines that I'm hoping to do myself next. It may or may not be a taboo, but for me, I think it will be quite the problematic game." Plot thickens. It's Metal Gear Solid 5, isn't it?

Kojima's most recent project was of course Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker on PSP. Oli Welsh reviewed for Eurogamer.
