Reflecting on Metal Gear's 25th Anniversary in a new blog post, series creator Hideo Kojima says we'll get a look at his new Fox Engine next month at an event in Japan, the same engine that will likely power the next Metal Gear title.

"The Fox Engine is nearly finished, but the only way to be sure it works is to create a game at the same time and improve the engine with our tools as we go along," Kojima says on the PlayStation Blog. "Originally we were going to do this for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, but a lot happened along the way and instead it is being made with the engine they have at Platinum Games."

Kojima added, "Production studios in Japan are nearly extinct, a fact that we have recognized for nearly 10 years, and although the Fox Engine is not finished we are ready to show what it can do… on August 30th in Japan to be more specific."

Over the past year we've seen a few glimpses of the new game engine from Kojima Productions. Kojima tweeted a number of photos of Project Ogre, a new game that that uses Fox Engine and is believed to be Metal Gear Solid 5.
