PlayStation 2 classic Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner is getting a PS4 re-release, Sony has just announced.
Footage of the new version was shown during PlayStation's Tokyo Games Show 2017 press conference, which Eurogamer attended.
This new version will be title Anubis: Zone of the Enders - Mars, include improved graphics and PlayStation VR support.
Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has abandoned his Zone of the Enders sequel project and dismantled its entire development team, leaving the future of the series in doubt.
Kojima announced the project's cancellation last night during his radio show (thanks, Siliconera), and explained that he had been left disappointed by the recent Zone of the Enders HD Collection.
The compilation shifted the fast-paced action series from 30 frames per second to 60 and simply wasn't smooth enough, Kojima continued, apologising to fans for the change.
This is an import review of the North American edition of the Zone of the Enders HD Collection. The European version is due out on 30th November.
The original Zone of the Enders on PS2 might have been a little bit of a fluke. Its success was certainly influenced by the timing of its release - and less down to luck than some shrewd business acumen. So Hideo Kojima wanted to try his hand at something outside Metal Gear (if only as a producer); that it happened to involve sleek, speedy robots crafted by MGS' masterful mechanical designer Yoji Shinkawa was arguably a cool enough idea to make Evangelion's EVA look like mobile suit jalopies by comparison.
Of course, for a lot of fans, the major incentive to play ZOE wasn't necessarily to see Kojima and Shinkawa's take on fast-paced anime robot battles - it was that it was packaged with a playable demo of Metal Gear Solid 2. I still remember salivating over that 10-minute-plus trailer of Mullet Snake infiltrating the tanker, hiding in lockers and trading pistol shots with Kamysh-clad mercenaries in the ship galley. I was aching to get a taste, and if Konami happened to release a £30 demo that came with a free mech game, who was I to complain?
