Hideo Kojima has admitted to fantasising about his next game, despite having his plate full with Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

"I still have loads of work for PW, but my mind is in 'The Next Title Mode,'" tweeted Kojima.

"This is bad. I have to get my mind set on PW. I think about it without noticing, obsessing over it, unconsciously smiling and getting excited. Once again, thinking about 'The Next Title.'"

In an earlier tweet, he said:

"I'm pondering over the next project's voice cast. I still do not have the details embedded, but everything is running simultaneously in my head. The title, game design, story, characters, setting, mechs, casting, direction of the graphics, sound, beginning & ending, and key story sequences. It all moulds together naturally in my head."

Peace Walker will be released in June and Kojima Productions has already announced the development of Metal Gear Solid: Rising, although Kojima himself will take a back seat on that game's production.
