Hideo Kojima Teases “Super Confidential Project”, Talks About MGS V: Ground Zeroes’ Camera

With Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes just two months away, Hideo Kojima has been posting more and more on his Twitter feed about video games. Perhaps the most interesting tweet over the last few days is one with the above image and a caption reading “Kojima Production SUPER CONFIDENTIAL PROJECT’s experiment presentation & meeting.” Since this is Kojima, the tweet could be a troll, so don’t read too much into it quite yet.

Getting to Metal Gear Solid V, Kojima spent some time talking about the camera:

Freedom is important as MGSV is real sneaking simulator, thus most of the cutscenes are taken by one shot in order to connect to gameplay. You can change the camera manually, but except that it is almost taken one shot from OP to ED. As you can see, [Ground Zeroes’] OP is intentional indeed.

Only one camera both in gameplay and cutscenes in order to feel reality. Also intentionally set easy to spot where Chico is imprisoned in [Ground Zeroes]. Originally the cutscenes I started [with Metal Gear Solid 1 were] not rendered movie, but real time demo sequence [that] challenges the future of digital entertainment.

Kojima also posted some new images of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, including his walkman, which he carries during the sneaking mission. As he listens to an analog tape, he smokes a cigar:
