Z.O.E. HD Night ends with big announcement.

Kojima Productions ended its Zone of the Enders HD Night in Shinjuku with a big announcement – a new Zone of the Enders is currently underway.

According to, while the game is still in the experimental and prototyping stages, Kojima Productions boss Hideo Kojima is serious about creating a sequel. Ryosuke Toriyama will act as producer on the project.

Twitter user Magu, who attended the event, says the project is a sequel to Anubis (Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner) set not in a futuristic setting, but in an ancient civilization. The render shown above was created in the Fox Engine.

He shared a couple of additional shots showing off the project’s new Orbital Frame:

    I’m pretty certain this will end up being a next gen title. Project Ogre – MGS5 – ZOE. Each title taking at least 2 yrs development time.

    Way too freakin early to announce. Ridiculous. It might be 3 years before we get to play this game, if not longer.
