TGS ’09: Kojima wants to make hardcore games for Natal


Hideo Kojima, the creator of Metal Gear, has told Kotaku during TGS that he wants to make games for Natal that would appeal to people who play games such as Halo or Gears of War; hardcore games.

“I am very interested in Natal,” said Kojima. “It seems like magic.”

“I’m not interested in making Natal games for casual users, but I’m interested in making games that hardcore users always wanted to play,” he said. “I want to make to a core game experience on Natal — something that , like a Halo or Gears of War or, of course, like Metal Gear Solid, is a core experience. It’s not like I just want to make an FPS. And I don’t want to make something that’s very simple. I want to make something that is deep for players. I want to give them something that is a deeper experience with Natal.”

Kojima, being the mastermind he is, could probably create one badass game using Natal. I’d love to see what he can do.
