Ikuya Nakamura (Kojima Production veteran, director, artist and writer of the Boktai franchise, co-director of MGSV) is game designer and writer on an unknown project at Konami.
While Konami’s video game division has been very discreet in the aftermath of the release and fall of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain , there appears to be a new strategy in the works that could bring increased activity and releases. Hence, a recent publication has attracted attention and is that a creative who was part of the history of Metal Gear Solid is already working on something new for Konami, although it is not time to throw the bells to the flight.
KONAMI RETURNS TO VIDEO GAMES LITTLE BY LITTLE, BUT NOT LIKE BEFORE
It is difficult to imagine Metal Gear Solid without Hideo Kojima and so far the game that came out without his participation, Metal Gear Survive , passed with more pain than glory. Although the Japanese creative brought many of the talents to Kojima Productions, there are still developers who worked with him at Konami who could be leaders of a new generation. Such is the case of Ikuya Nakamura, who has ignited the hype of fans of Metal Gear Solid and Konami titles by revealing in his Twitter bio that he is working on something new, not announced, for the company and his role in the project. is the designer of the game and the scenarios.
MANY WOULD LIKE A NEW METAL GEAR , BUT IT IS UNLIKELY OR NOT AT ALL
If the expectation has been generated around this information it is because Ikuya Nakamura has been part of many of the releases of Metal Gear Solid , a franchise with which he started in 1998 as the designer of the vibration effects, as well as supervisor of the modeling of the characters and textures.
The news can blow your mind thinking that Konami could bring Metal Gear Solid , but it seems difficult for that to happen because the reactivation of the company in the video game sector seems to have no plans for any AAA, since it has seen the launch of collections of classic titles and a new strategy around its most popular franchises today, Pro Evolution Soccer and Yu-Gi-Oh , which will now try their luck in the field of free-to-play and content sales .
