Hideo Kojima's development team at Konami is working on a new game project for the PSP. The father of the Metal Gear series recently disclosed through an entry in his official Japanese blog that he and five other staffers have met up to discuss a new game for the Sony handheld. While the project is still in the planning stages and Kojima didn't get into the details, he did reveal that it will be directed and produced by Shinta Nojiri, director for Metal Gear Acid 2. Kojima doesn't clearly state if he will participate as a core member of the project, but he will almost certainly give his input to the development team.
"It seems alright as a project plan," Kojima wrote. "The issue is, it will feature a completely new system, so we need to learn if it'll be accepted [by gamers]. We'll have to make a prototype and have it play-tested. It'll play with a system that's different from traditional games. That'll be its selling point. Will it be accepted, or will it be rejected? We're going to see how it goes."
