Metal Gear Solid’s Hideo Kojima announced on his blog (only Japanese) that Zone of the Enders 3, will happen, though as to when exactly remains a mystery.

“I cannot make a promise about time. However, I can promise a sequel.”

Some of you may better remember the first Zone of the Enders for its inclusion of the Metal Gear 2 demo, but its epic anime-style mecha battles became more and more fast-paced and story-driven in Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner. The sequel had several improvements over the original, giving you a good blend of stunning visuals, frantic gameplay and compelling characters into an addictive anime-inspired experience, though good reviews and a huge following didnt help its not-so-good sales numbers.

“Everything was due to an error by me,” admitted Kojima. “At that time, if I hadn’t made a mistake with the release date, [Zone of the Enders] might have ended up a major Kojima Productions title to follow MGS, still seeing development as a series.”

For all the love I have for this game, I would really like to see a triumphant return to consoles. Lets hope Mr. Kojima doesn't keep us fans waiting for too long.
