Kojima’s new series to focus on human issues

Ideas such as love and bringing up a family.

Kojima Productions boss Hideo Kojima is working away on a “new series” different from Metal Gear Solid said to focus on the troubles and strife of the average human.

“There are a lot of real world issues I want to address, but the reason I kept making the Metal Gear Solid saga and its sequels is that it allowed me to explore my ideas”, Kojima told CVG at E3.

“But now I’m starting a new series, focusing on new set of issues. It’ll probably be different to what Metal Gear Solid addressed. Of course, I’m turning 50 now, so if I’m going to approach new topics, it might be something more on a human level, like the concept of love, or rearing a family, things of that nature.”

Kojima also spoke a bit about Project Ogre, which he calls “risky,” but feels there will be “a huge reward.” While you wait, enjoy games like Metal Gear Rising or The Last of Us, he said.
