Hideo Kojima Unveils His Next Game's Foxy Engine

Kojima Productions is working on its very own game engine that'll be used first by an unannounced Hideo Kojima project.

Hideo Kojima has sadly confirmed that E3 2011 will come and go without any word on his upcoming mystery project (with Metal Gear Rising also taking a pass). On the bright side, Kojima has given us a taste of what's to come, revealing Kojima Productions' new Fox Engine that will be used for Kojima's next game.

Konami's pre-E3 2011 press show featured a Kojima interview with a lush forest on a screen in the background. Eventually, Kojima revealed that this was a demo of the Fox Engine, an in-house, original engine in the works at Kojima Productions. With the Fox Engine, Kojima says that he's looking to switch from developing for specific platforms to more of a global focus. The Fox Engine will be multi-platform, and Kojima wants it to be "the best in the world." Work started on the Fox Engine right after the completion of Metal Gear Solid 4 in mid-2008.

Kojima shows off the Fox Engine by demonstrating a "game" that he says isn't necessarily part of his next project, but rather a demo so that designers can place items and practice with the engine's toolset. It shows a jungle native wandering around an extremely detailed tropical forest environment, along with a horse and dog.

Kojima confirmed that his next game will use the Fox Engine, but he didn't say when we'll learn more about what kind of title he's working on. However, he did reveal that the game will be multi-platform, and that it'll be "transfarring" enabled, meaning it'll support PS3 to NGP game save transfer.

The Fox Engine's demo is very Metal Gear Solid 3, and Kojima is the master of Metal Gear no matter how many times he says he's quitting the series, so this could be a clue that Snake will return to the jungle in Metal Gear Solid 5. Whatever the case, Kojima Productions is definitely upping its game with the Fox Engine.

Hideo Kojima is vixen to get a leg up on the competition.

God... PLEAAASE let it be a new Zone of the Enders... the collection you've talked about marks the perfect chance to make a 3rd!

I hate the dubbing. To the point that I'm unable to watch this.

Ooh, I always enjoy the creation of a new game engine. I can't wait to see what it can do, those screenshots make it look pretty damn cool.

Awww you your hired again....Man this as a great 1 sided joke to me lol

OT: Maybe he will remake MG for ps3. I hope for Z.O.E 3 though.

Way pumped to see what Hideo Kojima does outside Metal Gear.

Also Peace Walker = MGS5, from what I heard...and from what YOU, The Escapist, reported*! At least that's how I wanna keep it. I heard MGSPW is the last chapter in the Naked Snake saga, and MGS Rising covers Raiden's time between MGS2 and 4...Just what else IS left? An HD remake and re-branding of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake?

Wow, that engine has some beautiful effects. Can't wait to see it on the next game.

Also, inb4 complaints about next game being multi-platform like Rising.

That's no dubbing, Kojima is so awesome that when he speaks his perfect english his lips don't sync with his speech.

Looks pretty.

As long as it isn't a Metal Gear spinoff game I am happy. Mind you I liked the MGS series, but for me it ended with MGS4 :)

Would be fun with something new.

I have to admit, I came for the 'foxy' and nothing else.

I leave this thread disappointed but still awed by the nice graphics.

This doesn't look like it'll run on the PS3.

Exciting!

The game engines these days that have been dominating are Source 2009, Unreal 3, CryEngine and Gamebryo. A new contender will be interesting.

heyyy thats what hideo kojima actually sounds like.... :P

"The best in the world?"

Well, high hopes but it will fail.

On graphics alone the newest unreal already looks better...

gotta say, i like the way it looks detailed without being completely photorealistic

meh, they dont show anything but the enviorement, compared to other engines this one is still way behind. The CryEngine 2/3 and the Unreal Engine 3 can do the same and already shown better with the dinamic lights and the layered textures and all the other shit.

This video only showed a guy running ._.

I also hate the use of "The BEST in the world", its sounds incredibly childish and he shouldnt refer the project as his own, maybe it was the dub but still, he isnt doing the game all on its own.

Where's the duck picture, every news involving Kojima needs that duck picture

OT: make it for the PC then we talk

*Breate in* SSSQQQQQQQQQUUUUUUUUUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. . . . . . *deep breaths*

OT: God I hope it something awesomely original, but I would straight out flip my shit if it was a new ZOE game.

The collection that I've heard about sounds fantastic as well, I really want to play MGS3 with epic MGS4 graphics, but the remastered ZOE and ZOE2 sound like a godsend.

I am sorry, it doesn't impress me, there are way more advanced engines out there.

BURRRRRNNNN!

OT: I've gotta say, those stills look incredible. Hope that can be reproduced in game.

I can see that running on a PC but none of the consoles have DX11... or enough vram I would imagine.

Not being elitist, just pointing out facts...

Everything looks like plasticine.

I agree, klind of reminds me of Crysis having a baby with the worst of the UE3. Or Uncharded 1 moulded out of plastic.

Well this is an early demo but the screens look suspiciously anti-aliased and have an odd ammount of distance detail and AF for their close-up qulaity. Im guessing this is about as good as we are going to get as these seem to be 'promotinal shots'.

You guys just described every engine of this generation. Congrats.

This engine doesnt look like anything special honestly.

Seriously? Would you rather hear the Japanese instead?

OT: Based on current trends, I'm guessing it's a gritty reboot of My Little Pony.

I'm sorry but this seemed really porn like...The video and how it sounded.

On topic: Well that jungle sure looks nice. I'm wondering if there's any particular reason for why they chose a boy, a dog and a horse. Maybe they'll acutally follow the idea further than just a demo?

Oh god, this dubbing reminds me of Iron Chef. If for some reason they used a teenage boy as the voice. It was so silly sounding.

I also like how he goes "oh crap! you saw that thing behind me you weren't supposed to see!" and then immediately pulls out a pre-prepared advertisement for it.

Microsoft gave him 5 bucks to touch the Xbox controller instead of the PS3 controller or PC mouse!

EXCLUSIVITY AND MARKETING MAN!

Oh wow you saw this thing playing on the big screens behind me! How observant of you! OK, you're twisting my arm here but I'll tell you what this is.
Good that I'm caring my new logo presentation everywhere with me.
And look someone has neatly arranged all those controlers by accident :D

I blame the dubbing but it did sound Ludicrous :P
