Game producer Kojima Hideo and Shikura Chiyomaru (the President of MAGES. and the original planner of Steins;Gate game) officially announced in HideRadio that they are working together to produce a new adventure game on consumer game consoles. Its anime adaptation has already been planned. The game is scheduled to be released in 2012 following Robotics;Notes.

The protagonist is a 17 year old boy and Kojima wants to describe the development of the character by a train of events and accidents which are directly connected to the real life instead of jumping into a fantasy world. Shikura thinks it'll be easier to introduce the game to North America and Europe with anime and manga than promoting the game itself.

Hideo Kojima working on an Anime? That's like Hayao Miyazaki working on a game. That'd never hap- Oh, you say that it is indeed happening and that's what this thread is about. You also say that The Level - 5/Studio Ghibli collaboration Ni No Kuni, is in fact a game being worked on by Miyazaki?
Excuse me while I go have my heart explode. My body can't take this much awesome!

Over dramatic-ness aside, it'll be a huge disappointment if this doesn't turn out to be the type of work such a name should create.

Well considering his games lately have been nothing but movies with sparse interactive cut scenes, he should just make anime.

also prepare for a script that consists of nothing but sudo philosophical techno babel verbal diarrhea

Sounds interesting. Showing such promise, with our luck, it'll be a fail worthy of a Kyon-facepalm. ^_^V
