MGS two-timing PSP

An all-new game and a mysterious bit of "digital content" based on the action series are currently in development at Kojima Productions.

Hideo Kojima may be busy at work on Metal Gear Solid 4 for the PlayStation 3, but he's also prepping other installments in the best-selling series. The latest issue of Famitsu revealed that Konami's famed game designer is working on not just one, but two new Metal Gear Solid projects for the PSP.

The first project is named "Metal Gear Solid BD," which Famitsu reports will be some form of "digital content" slated for a spring 2006 release in Japan. Kojima did not give any details about the project, but the article implied that it may be a form of entertainment other than a game.

The second MGS PSP project will be a "totally new Metal Gear Solid game." Kojima avoided disclosing the game's name, saying that it will give away what the game is about. However, he hinted that it plays relatively normal, excluding a new form of gameplay that "is only possible with the PSP."

While he personally thinks that the game will be interesting, Kojima added that the new concept is so "different," he needs to test alpha version to see if the game has a chance at retail. When asked about the game's release period, Kojima would say only that it shouldn't take extremely long to develop.

The second game appears to be the title Kojima previously mentioned on his official blog. In November, he said he was working on a new PSP project with a "completely new system" that is being produced by Metal Gear Acid 2 director Shinta Nojiri.

I'm happy about this. I just beat Acid. Took 4 days for so and it was enjoyable. Hard but enjoyable I'm always looking for new things in gaming. This is even better I can't wait! (Still gotta play MGS3, I'm so pathetic)

This is great news to hear, seen as though the only Metal Gear game on the PSP at the minute is Ac!d which, let's face it, is a bag of crap. As for the 'only possible on PSP' thing, I am really excited to see what it is. Kojima has entertained and shocked us in the past and I am sure he is going to come up with something totally new and entertaining this time. Hope I don't have to wait too long for it though :P P.S - Maybe some kind of interactivity with the Xbox 360 VIA the USB cable would be nice on... well, any PSP game :)

Well, in French, "BD" means "bande dessine", which roughly translates as "cartoon" or "comic book". Maybe it's some sort of UMD anime, similar to Advent Children.

MGS BD is almost certainly a PSP comic. Frank Miller, the guy that wrote Sin City, is tipped to helm, and 'BD' is an abbreviation for the French term for comic books. If it isn't a comic, I'll eat my hat. But dude, Frank Miller's Metal Gear Solid. How cool is that!

This gives people more reason to play the PSP. The MGS series was great I just wish that Xbox users could play as well.
