E3'09: Metal Gear director collaborating with Spanish studio Mercury Steam

Kojima helming new Castlevania title

Hideo Kojima has never been coy about his desire to work with Western studios – and now he’s doing exactly that.

Kojima Productions will be collaborating with Spanish studio Mercury Steam, the developer of Clive Barker’s Jericho, on a new entry in the Castlevania series.

Kojima has previously worked with Canadian developer Silicon Knights on the GameCube title Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, a remake of his seminal PS1 classic.

It was also revealed by Famitsu that Kojima is working on three Metal Gear Solid titles: he’s designing, directing and producer the PSP title Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker; producing next-gen spin-off Metal Gear Solid Rising; and is involved in Metal Gear Arcade, an arcade version of Metal Gear Online.
