Kojima working on Rev game?

Nothing to do with MGS.

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima is currently hard at work on a new game for Nintendo's next-gen console.

That's according to US magazine Game Informer - the latest issue of which features an article on how the Revolution was received at the Tokyo Game Show last month.

The article argues that there's a worrying lack of third party support for the hardware so far, but continues: "Despite these concerns, developers we talked to at TGS were very positive about the new controller.

"Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima is already working on a project for Revolution, being done by the Metal Gear Acid team."

And that's not all - Game Informer reckons the game will be an all-new title, and nothing to do with the Metal Gear series.

Kojima, you may recall, was seen praising the new "freestyle" controller in a video shown at TGSas part of Satoru Iwata's keynote presentation.

"This was totally unexpected," Kojima said, adding: "Even though it was a surprise to me at first, I quickly understood how it should be used."

So clearly he's a fan of Nintendo's new innovation, but a big enough fan to get personally involved with a new game for the Rev? Well, he should have a bit of spare time on his hands once Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is complete - providing he really is planning to retire from the series, of course.
