Current events

It's been a long time since the last activity on this news feed. Of course, we all know about The Phantom Pain and are eagerly awaiting for it. It will certainly mark the end of an era. Junker HQ has been a Kojima fan site for more than 15 years, and we don't know yet what the future will bring. What we do know is that MGSV will be an incredible game, and we'll enjoy it soon. From then on, we hope the best for the Kojima productions team. We'll be following their paths. Happy birthday Kojima san.

Sdatcher localized?

On the latest KP podcast they asked for feedback regarding whether people want to see Sdatcher localized somehow. While we're continuing to work on our subtitled version, it would nevertheless be great to see an official English version.

Cast your vote on the "Super widescreen" issue on MGS HD collection

Omega579 from the forums aletred us to the latest KP Report where they discuss the "Super Widescreen" issue. You can listen to that segment at minute 11 with 50 seconds.

Cast your vote regarding this issue and let's try and make this HD release what should be, documenting the proper cinematography, not showing unintended content and most importantly, using HD correctly and to its full extent by asking for the cinemas in their original 18;9 presentation. Here's the link, post your comment.

Full Article: Cast your vote on the "Super widescreen" issue on MGS HD collection

"Super Widescreen" on HD remakes of MGS2 and MGS3

As you probably know, the aspect ratio of teh original titles during cinemas, which was 16:9, is not being respected in the HD remakes.. even though the native aspect ratio is now real 16:9 and not achieved through letterboxing.

And even though the Snake soup documented this in several occasions, now it is being reported as a feature.

It has not been reported how this will affect both Z.O.E. titles. It must be noted that Anubis has some animation, which will hopefully be respected, but who knows about the real time cinemas.

It is a shame since the aesthetic value is completely disregarded, and some elements which were not meant to be shown are now. It could have been (or maybe still could be) a perfect re-release, but it seems they are focusing on having this maybe due to some technical problem.

SDATCHER teaser music and trailer

Marc posted:

"An excerpt of the Sdatcher theme music and a trailer was included in the latest Hideradio."

"Like the rest of the music, the song is composed by Akira Yamaoka and starts at 16:30, and the trailer starts at 38:40. Being a trailer, I'm not sure I want to translate it because I don't have the entire script to go on (contextual factors come into play)."

"A release date of September 2nd is announced at the end of the trailer."

More info at: the forums.

Thanks to Marc for the detailed information.

Kojima Intervies during his stay in Mexico

Here is one of the two interviews that took place during Kojima's visit to Mexico, at the Playstation Blog

"This idea of an open world in 3D is very good, and I would love to do something like Snatcher, but I do not have the time or the means to do so. But if anyone else would like to develop it, I would love it."

The other will be in Atomix Mag.

A bit more exciting for long time Kojima fans, here's a new site: Mask Site.

It seems to be a new IP, which would be refreshing for us all.

From the Action Script withing the flash it seems that it shows something from 6 to 18 hours and something different during the rest of the day (the two masks most probably).

onClipEvent (enterFrame)
date_obj = new Date();
time_h = date_obj.getHours();
if (time_h >= 6 && time_h < 18)
} // end if

This might imply something related to game mechanics and time.

La Mulana, and Tokimeki/Snatcher game references

A friend of mine pointed me to a great game called La Mulana, a game created in the MSX style and recently translated to English. I must say that the game design is really good, and that it is indeed challenging. I recommend you play it.
But, there is more to it as the title of this entry says. The game has hidden mini MSX game parodies within, by collecting some items. Here is a link to a video of the one that interests us. I must warn you though, the voice of the guy narrating is a bit annoying. You've been warned.

Kojima productions poll results (by Osiris)

Osiris caught the results of the questions from photos taken at TGS:

1) Which KP game would you like to see remade (or ported to another console)?

  1. The Document of MGS2 (PS2) (32.7%)
  2. Metal Gear (MSX2) (18.2%)
  3. Metal Gear Solid: Integral (PS) (17.4%)
  4. Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake (MSX2) (5.5%)
  5. Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes (GC) (5.2%)

Oooookaaaayyy.... That was kinda unexpected (except for the MSX versions). KP was surprised Document got top, too.

2) Which KP game would you like to see get a sequel?

  1. MGS (55.2%)
  2. ZOE (17.6%)
  3. MG (10.0%)
  4. The Document of MGS2 (5.2%)
  5. Policenatus (No, I didn't misspell that. Nice going, Ryan! :/) (3.3%)

3) Which system(s) would you like to see us release games for?

  1. PS3 (79.2%)

I tried my best with the percentages, but I really had to squint to even get a good look at them.

Anyway, the shows will be broadcast over the next coming weeks. It appears Tecmo and KP are going to be doing some sort of big collaberation. Lunar Knights will also have animation scenes done by Studio 4 C. Doshin the Giant's Kazutoshi Iida made a surprise appearance on the radio as well.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence Limited Edition scans

The scans of the Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence Limited Edition scans are up now, the regular edition is exactly the same minus the Red box and the Existence DVD. Unfortunately the manual does not have all the detail it should (the japanese one was 130+ pages), most probably due to not wanting to rise the price of the product. This detail might make it difficult for some to deal with the MSX games, so I am linking the Metal Gear Redux page, which contains a translation of Metal Gear's manual and Takamichi's translation of the Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake Manual for reference.

Suda51 and Kojima

During Hidechan Radio #31 Suda51 and Kojima talk about Gyakuten Saiban (Phoenix Wright), Snatcher and Policenauts (minute 6:00); the background music is "Theme of Ending" from the MSX version of Snatcher. Unfortunately they are talking about the low sales of the genre. By the way, if you haven't played Phoenix Wright and have a DS, give it a try... I loved the game. Thanks to Osiris for pointing this out.

Snatcher trademark

Another month goes by. But there are some Snatcher news, which I don't claim to be the first to bring of course. There was a renewal of the Snatcher trademark by Konami, on 2005-10-27. Of course this has created rumors of a re-release of some sort, but if you examine the page it reveals that such a renewal process has been done in the past, and that it needs to be done every 6 years (Wikipedia states that in the US it is a period of 5 years at most). What it does point out, is that Konami is not forgetting it's trademarks neither letting them go.

Also, during the 25th Hidechan radio transmission (available at Konami's site) the guest was Kikuko Inoue (seiyuu/voice actress for Jaime Seed in Snatcher CD-ROMantic, Karen Hojo in Policenauts, Rose in Metal Gear Solid 2 and The Boss in Metal Gear Solid 3. I don't understand much of it, but from what I gathered and what Osiris told me (who told me about this whole deal) they are speaking about when they made the games (Snatcher and Policenauts) and they put Snatcher and Policenauts music in the background during the interview. The great thing that they always do, noted as well by Osiris, is end the program with End of the Dark, a hint to how much Kojima-san loves the game. Thanks a lot to Marc for this info.
