SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST?
Konami v Kojima
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.
