It's no secret that we at Dealspwn want a Zone of the Enders sequel. Badly. And Hideo Kojima being Hideo Kojima, just loves to lead us on. Tweeting this figurine earlier, the celebrity developer seems to have 'inadvertently' hinted at the possibility of a 3DS Z.O.E, the banner of which sits behind his intended subject.
Absent from E3 this year, Kojima did reveal in Konami's early presser that an HD Zone of the Enders would be making its way to this generation's crop of consoles. The franchise, which was always going to have a difficult time competing with Kojima's flagship series Metal Gear Solid, nonetheless has an ardent following, and Konami must feel that the world is ready for the return of the Orbital Frame.
Kojima is a notorious tease, and confirming the existence of a 3DS Z.O.E is at this stage impossible. But maybe, just maybe, Konami have heard our cries. [Twitter]
