Hideo Kojima, the busiest man in gaming, is working on a new project, titled Physint, and it seems very Metal Gear Solid-like. More here.
Fans of Hideo Kojima were truly feasting during last night’s State Of Play event. Not only were we treated to a pretty freaky Death Stranding 2 gameplay trailer, but Playstation also announced a brand new IP in collaboration with Kojima.
The project goes by the name of Physint, and while we know very little at this point, we know enough to get proper excited.
It seems that the project will be a spiritual successor for Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid franchise. Those rights are still held by Konami, but Physint is being described as “next-generation action espionage game”.
Here’s a snippet of what Kojima said during the event about Physint:
“Of course, it is an interactive game, but it is also a movie at the same time, in terms of look, story, theme, cast, acting, fashion and sound. With this title, we hope to transcend the barriers between film and video games.”
We like the sound of that. A game that’s kind of like a movie? Could it be more up Film Stories’ street? No is the correct answer to that.
According to a tweet by Kojima, Physint is only a working title for the project and it’ll be the third original IP for the studio since its founding. The other two are, of course, Death Stranding and the mysterious project currently known as OD. Jordan Peele is involved in OD as a writer as we recently learned, but not much else is known about the game at the moment.
Death Stranding is also being developed as a movie by Kojima Productions and A24, ensuring that Hideo Kojima remains busy for the foreseeable future.
More on Physint as we hear it.
