Yesterday, there was an event held in Tokyo specifically for the Zone of the Enders series. During said event, it was announced that the HD collection of the series would be released on October 25th in Japan for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but the international release date still has the vague window of “fall.”
However, the real news that came out of the event is that Hideo Kojima announced that a sequel is in development. Codenamed “Enders Project,” the game is in the prototyping stage, where they are currently converting physical models into 3D models that will be used in their Fox Engine. The above image is an example of one model, which looks much more organic, as opposed to the robotic look that we are more familiar with from the series. It will be interesting to see where they are going with the Zone of the Enders franchise.
