Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes game revealed; film adaptation of the series also announced

Early this morning in Japan, Konami revealed at its 25th anniversary Metal Gear event that the company is currently working on a new title, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes.

It appears to be a brand new stealth-action game with a younger looking Snake, and in a reportedly revealed demonstration, he was seen infiltrating a rain-drenched compound, avoiding search lights, taking out a guard, driving a jeep and then summoning a helicopter in a seamless, open-world environment, according to an article on Joystiq.

In the picture on the right, he bears heavy resemblance to Sam Fisher of the Splinter Cell franchise, which means the game will probably be returning to a familiar stealth-action roots, but somehow combining an open-world experience into the mix.

The game will be running on the FOX engine. Only these details as well as a teaser image have been revealed, and as soon as Konami comes out with more information, we’ll pass it along.

As well, according to an article in the Guardian, a Metal Gear Solid film has finally been confirmed in the works, with Colombia Pictures taking on the franchise, and Marvel’s Avi Arad producing it.

Hideo Kojima, the creative mind behind the Metal Gear series, has expressed interest in Christopher Nolan as a director, but so far no directors for the film have been confirmed, and the idea came as a mere admiration for Nolan’s work in the past.
