On April 12th of last year I did a news update regarding (what was at that point being called) the “taboo” game. This site doesn’t have links to individual news pieces, but it’s on this archive page.
Since then he hasn’t talked about taboos, but has mentioned a “devil project” several times, leading many to conclude that they are the same game. As you can see from the picture in the archives, the image I originally decided to associate with the “taboo” project is—in fact—a devil!
What does this mean?
It means that Kojima has been reading my site, and after seeing that I made him look like a devil based on his statements, he decided to start calling his taboo project the “devil project”, of course! (Or, if you’re following the new translations of his Twitter feed, the “Ogre” project. But we know that Japanese people translate devil into ogre, so that’s just a tyny mistake!)
Does this also mean that my theory about the taboo/devil project is correct? That the game will be a remake of the original Metal Gear, but feature a ton of retroactive continuity? Which if he handles incorrectly, could force him to “leave the industry”? Probably. For now though, what are the odds of him calling it the devil project soon after I used that devil image? Spooky.
Also, yes, a bunch of new articles and stuff are on the way!
