Hideo Kojima has confirmed the role he'll be playing in the development of the freshly revealed Zone of the Enders game.
The Metal Gear creator said on Twitter that as he's currently tied up with Project Ogre, an open-world experience he's promised will be very different from his previous works, he'll only be serving as a producer on the ZOE title.
Kojima also said the new game will stay true to the feel of the series while adopting a global "real world live action" style similar to "X-Men, Batman and Spiderman", as opposed to the "Japanimation SF Robot" style used in previous franchise entries.
He said a "global, high-end Z.O.E. style" is optimal for his studio's internally-developed Fox Engine and means that the content, game feel and budget isn't "domestic-oriented".
