Kojima Productions: Do you really want Zone of the Enders 3?
Posted on April 20, 2009 by Nick
 

Though luminary game designer Hideo Kojima's most prominent franchise is the Metal Gear Solid franchise, his anime-inspired mech series, Zone of the Enders, has a special place in the hearts of many gamers.  The series has been on a 6 year hiatus, and the chances of another entry into the franchise is questionable, despite the success of both the spinoff GameBoy games and the the anime series.

However, it looks like their may still be a chance for a third Zone of the Enders title.  In the latest episode of the Metal Gear Solid Integral podcast, the crew at Kojima Productions talk extensively about the franchise.  They know that Zone of the Enders is a popular series amongst the diehard Kojima fans, but they question "How many people really want Zone of the Enders a sequel?", putting emphasis on the casual gamers, rather than the hardcore ones.  The discussion ends with Aki Saito saying "if there's so many people wanting to see Zone of the Enders, why not put the priority on top, a little further up, you know, but we just want to know.", encouraging listeners to "make sure you write your comments and we'll check your comments out".

So if you or someone you know wants to see a Zone of the Enders 3, make sure you let KJP know here!

I would love a Zone of the Enders 3. Kojima, if you're reading this, make it happen! But focus around Leo; I think if he was aged again (maybe like mid-twenties?) he would be a likable character. Dingo just looked to generic; white hair is hard to relate with. Be sure to give Leo a little scruff, too; not a full-fledged beard or anything, but enough that he *looks* mid-twenties.

HELL YES! Like every fan of the game I'm going to have some quips or suggestions that will probably never be heard, but I'll voice my opinions anyway! 1. No more animated cut scenes 2. Minor part customization. 3. Online Versus (and co-op?) game play mode(s) Also it would be cool if there was a Special edition version with a Jehuty figure that had both games packaged on a separate disc that would be AWESOME (even though I already have both of them on PS2). Also, the biggest negatives for the game in some peoples eyes is the cut scenes and the targeting system so targeting should be a higher priority area of concentration for the developers. I REALLY love the game and there is so much potential for greatness for a game like ZOE on the PS3. All it needs is some fine tuning, some account of past mistakes, feedback from people who played the game and a hell of a lot more advertising than past installments. GO ZOE!!!

Sorry about the double-post! Well, might as well add; give us Anubis for playing in the single-player mode! I'd love to play all the other Orbital Frames as well, but Anubis was just pimp.

I registered to this site just to say: YES ZONE OF THE ENDERS 3. I just got around to playing 2 not but 2 weeks ago and wow... the game looked and played phenomenally. I can only hope for something with better anime cutscenes, more explosive graphics, more gameplay (longer, if you can!), and just sheer insanity that was pulled off like in MGS4. Please, please, please.

I DO! I DO! IDO IDO IDO IDOIDOIDO!! D´: I really do want ZOE3! And I actually love MGS more than ZOE but I really believe Kojimas pressures would ease if Solid Snake would have his earned rest (for a while). If kojima would make MGS5 later it would be better than MGS5 he would make now. (MGS5now Suberb Game Not So Happy Kojima -> not so Suberb Game So I'm begging of you PLEASE! Let Kojima express himself freely!

Zone of the Enders is a beautiful series. Although a little short, the last one was amazing...you could really feel the power of the orbital frame in that game. I do think you should make a ZOE III. I'd buy it immediately. Frankly the storyline was amazing...although it better stick around high performance orbital frames, otherwise, the 'high-speed' feel of it would be gone...

Definatley woult love a new one. I think ZOE2 was Kojima's best game and visually was awesome - much more stylish than the MGS series on the same platform (though those game still looked awesome). The ZOE universe is awesome - if Konami can create another masterpiece, it might just be the best game of this generation...

ZOE III, Damn it will be a dream come true. ZOE was one of the greatest games i ever played, and for a long time there was not game out there that had it complete package, story, game control, music, all compounded to make a great game. The crazy thought about it was that i purchased the 1st ZOE just to play the MGS 2 and after i finished playing the demo i said what the heck let me try it i spend $50 bucks; And oh man i was hooked, the crazy fast battle system it was like watching Armored Core with Dragon Ball Z attributes, and when ZOE 2 came out and intergrated the cell shaded look to the game, and the upgrades to Jehuty espacially naked jehuty. Damn i hope it comes out i will buy back my PS3 or sale my 360 to play it.

Please make a Zone of the Enders 2nd runner sequel....or ZOE 3. Kojima already stated that ZOE 3 was high on his list of "things to do" and I hope he acknowledges this soon.
