Hideo Kojima is a man of mystery, likes to be very vague when he’s talking about, well…pretty much anything. This week Kojima was interviewed by Kikizo who talked about games and the like as well as Kojima himself. One of the things that was found out is that Mr. Kojima turned 45 last Sunday (happy birthday dude) as well as talk of him being involved with future Metal Gear Solid titles. Click the jump for more.

Kikizo has noted that Kojima said he was going to stop working on Metal Gear after MGS2 and that obviously didn’t happen. He had said that MGS4 was going to be the last Metal Gear game that he worked on but in this interview he hinted that he might not be leaving MGS behind just yet

“political, business or technology reasons, there is always a time when I have to return … when we look ten years into the future, maybe yes, I may well end up spending more time on the Metal Gear series!”

Kizitzo also asked Kojima about the long cutscenes that have been a trademark of the Metal Gear Solid series and were at their best (and longest) in Guns Of The Patriots.

“In MGS4, yes, I put everything in the cut sequences, which I kind of regret to some extent, because maybe there is a new approach which I should think about.”

He said that he felt that games like BioShock and Halo were good in their own right but that they:

“lack a kind of deeper storyline or the expression of the feelings of the characters.”.

He thinks that the key to making a good game is to offer gamers a great interactive story as well as the type of story and emmotional connection that can only be experienced through cutscenes.

It’s obvious that MGS4 isn’t the last we’re going to see of the famous developer. MGS or not. The full interview can be read here.
