Images from Konami event in Japan reveal company at work on new iteration in action franchise under the working title "Enders Project."

A new Zone of the Enders game was announced today during a Konami special event in Japan, according to tweets from an animator in attendance (via Kotaku). The game is currently in development under the working title "Enders Project."

I got to play a the demo of ZOE that came with the launch of MGS2 and I was suprisingly blowed away when I played it. I really enjoyed it so this is great news for me. Also looking forward to the HD collection!

Too bad I sold my PS3 dust collector after that sony hacking scandal... I'll just have to keep playing Persona 4 and Z.O.E 2 on my PS2 seeing as my PS3 wasn't backwards compatible thanks to the brilliant people over at SONY.

 

I'll just have to watch it on youtube or maybe if we're lucky it's one of the release titles for the PS4.

hope the HD collection delivers the beans, but even then as long as it retains the game play it will be an amazing game.

Finally, some GOOD news from a Japanese developer. >>

 

But seriously, I am definitely going to buy the HD Collection if it's as good as the MGS COllection and not the SH Collection, because I've played the first ZOE and loved it, but never got the chance to play 2nd Runner. : (

Epic move Kojima.

 

Now all we need is the HD Collection to come out. Judging form the time it's taking to polish the game up, it seems like Konami's taking the HD Collection into serious consideration. I like it.

Announcing ZoE - a full-length action adventure game with the storyline and game designed by none other than Hideo Kojima himself!

 

Naaaah - it's just gonna be another mediocre action game with flashy visuals and gameplay that's fun for maybe a couple minutes.

Im certainly happy that ZOE HD will be coming soon and it's great to hear about a new ZOE but they are in the beginning stages so i dont expect it out for another 2-3yrs which may be PS4 or Xbox 720 by then.

Hot holy damn! ZoE was the first game that I felt really captured the grace and power of Japanese mechs, especially in fluidity of control. Sure, there have been tons of mech games, but stuff like Armored Core is more of a simulator, and I want angel wings on my robot, dammit!

I wanted to get into some ZOE last night, but I've made an oath to wait for that HD collection.

If Kojima really needs convinving that ther is demand for the series, so be it.

Z.O.E.!

This is amazing news! Now I can only hope they release it on 360 as well. I loved the first two but I would hate to have to miss out on ZOE3 simply because I went with Microsoft this gen.

 @Jimbowesker zoe 2 for me. i liked it. but now i think it looks weird... the picture for zoe 3 looks good though, going to try for sure

Dude, the first one was great, but the 2nd Runner is a masterpiece. Trust me, it's everything you ever wanted in a mech game and more.

 @darktruth007 We'd be more open if that balloon head of an ego person Hideo wasn't behind it, he was good at first then his ego has gotten the better of him. MGS4 while having good gameplay, it had so little between the 12 hours of movies scenes. like only 2 hours of it was gameplay.

 

So while Im happy to hear about this, I don't have much faith in it anymore.

Agreed, the way they whored out Xenosaga in Namco X Capcom and now this upcoming three way crossover between Namco, Capcom and Sega. I want to see that too!

PS: yay for ZOE project

 @WolfGrey  More like lack of trust. Of which I don't give out for free. If Z.O.E 3 comes out on PS3 I'll be surprised, it's far more likely to be a launch title for PS4.

 @RitsukoEX No your the joke RitsukoEX. Jeez fanboys/girls are on this site are rampant, i really need to stay off this site.
