SUR­VIVAL OF THE FITTEST?

Kon­ami v Kojima

EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE | TOKYO GAME SHOW -

Few would con­tend that, in the PR war between Kon­ami and Hideo Kojima, the com­pany sus­tained sig­nif­i­cantly more dam­age than its for­mer star de­vel­oper. Metal Gear Sur­vive is the first sig­nif­i­cant test for those de­vel­op­ers charged with the un­en­vi­able task of wran­gling Kojima’s le­gacy. At TGS, at­ten­dees had the op­por­tu­nity to play a four­player co-op sur­vival mis­sion, defending a base from in­com­ing en­e­mies with crafted weapons. Zom­bies may not fea­ture in Kojima’s vi­sion for the se­ries, but as both Call Of Duty and Red Dead Re­demp­tion have shown, the un­dead can whee­dle out a place in even the most nar­row of fic­tions.
