Kojima Productions Teases Next Metal Gear

By Spencer . December 5, 2008 . 1:16am

image A barebones splash page linked on Kojima Productions hints at a new Metal Gear project. The only clue we have about it is the image on the right. The URL has “MGST” which could be another clue or it could just stand for “Metal Gear Solid Teaser“. A quick search on the US and Japanese trademark database revealed no trademarks related to anything Metal Gear Solid T-something or stray T words related either.


Hmm… Konami has one unused trademark Metal Gear trademark… Metal Gear Solid Existence.

    Seems like Metal Gear Xbox 360 with the green colour.

  • Green = Xbox360

    I love how the entire internet has read this and is screeching MGS4 ON 360 PLZZZZZ

    My guess: MGST = MGS Tactics. ! = Ac!d.

    (…People actually played the Ac!d games?)


    Maybe they used “A” not “the” in “A next” from Apple and the i from iphone the ! ac!d maybe,
    still I will never buy an iphone.

  • Lucky

    Yes, because lime-green coloring suddenly means the game is going to be 360 FOR SURE, NO DOUBT.

    Hmm… The i / ! (Or are they both exclamation marks?) could be related to Ac!d. And it all equals to a power button with an !. Could be online or something?

    Who knows, but it is a spin-off game… I’m going towards a console Ac!d game, but all of this is just speculation. We will see when we get more info.

  • jarrod

    I think it’s fair to say something for 360 seems most likely at this point. Most speculation seems centered on ports (MGS4 is coincidentally hitting that magic 6 month exclusivity mark about now, the “!”
    has people thinking about AC!D 1+2 Live), but I hope it’s something new.

  • matty

    At least it’s not red, like in the games. That could send a wrong message!

  • Taking a step back here and going with the iPhone someone mentioned above: Metal Gear Solid Touch, perhaps? A remake of Ac!d for the iPhone and iPod Touch?

    Hey, finally, an iPhone game I would buy. :)

  • SomeDude

    I read that as, “I + ! = MGS is On.”

    Although, it’s not just the lime green that makes people think 360, although it’s a fairly generic “on/off switch” icon, it’s also the one that’s on the 360’s power button.

  • stoffhimel

    it could be an on switch, or it could be something even more sinister. it could mean full circle. maybe the last of the ac!d series?

  • Dangalf

    Hmmmm… I see the first “i” being the i from the Wii marketing campaigns, the second “!” meaning Ac!d, and the final symbol meaning Ac!d with range of motion / motion controls. That could be cool…!!!

  • lostinblue

    i could be wii.

    hopefully not ac!d though, we deserve a proper game.

  • Shaun

    It is Metal Gear Solid Touch for the iPod Touch
