Metal Gear Solid 2 ended with an explosion of questions. In creating a game that questioned its own status as a game, Kojima had opened countless essentially insoluble plot threads. The most pressing one was: what next? Hideo Kojima initially tried to avoid directing Metal Gear Solid 3, or so the talk goes. He did not.

Hideo Kojima has confirmed Metal Gear Solid 5 will be built using the Fox Engine - according to a new interview.
The legendary Japanese game developer told the July issue of French magazine IG (via Gamekyo) that Metal Gear Solid 5 is indeed in the works, and hinted that Solid Snake may be in it.
We've had our French colleagues at Eurogamer.fr (Sweden lol) look over the report and they told us the following:
Metal Gear developer Konami has announced how gamers can get their hands on the Metal Gear Solid-themed limited edition 3DS.
Superstar video game developer Hideo Kojima hopes the Metal Gear series will continue after he's dead.
Metal Gear Solid 3D launches early 2012, Hideo Kojima has announced.
When Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D arrives on the 3DS later this year, it'll be the first game for the system to launch on a 4GB cart rather than Nintendo's 2GB standard.
Pink Snake screens stealthily sneak in.
Metal Gear Solid 3D features gyroscopic controls and a touch screen-based HUD.
Hideo Kojima has ruled out a Metal Gear Solid 5 reveal at this year's E3.
Konami has reportedly pegged Metal Gear Solid 3: The Snake Eater 3D - The Naked Sample for a November release in the UK.
3DS games Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater, PES, Contra and Frogger will all be released in Europe, Konami's confirmed.
We knew of their existence following the 3DS handheld's E3 2010 reveal in June, but now we have official word the quartet will be hitting our shores.
Details are scarce. We've got nothing on the 3DS Pro Evolution Soccer, Contra or Frogger, but there's an on-rails video of Snake Eater, which you can see below.
Watch the on-rails 3DS demo.
Hideo Kojima has obliterated concern that his 3DS Metal Gear Solid game was nothing more than a "sample" by confirming that it'll be released next year.
Konami has told Eurogamer that the wonderfully named Hideo Kojima's Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D "The Naked Sample" (3DS) remains "a full product" despite comments from Kojima Productions that suggest otherwise.
