Zone of the Enders is a series that could have been huge, but never reached the level of success as the other franchise of the designer Hideo Kojima, Metal Gear Solid. Rather than stealth, Zone of the Enders concentrated much more about the action, because the person’s character takes control of giant mechs to fight armies of robots in space.
The series takes place in the distant future, when humanity flew to the stars, with colonies as far as the Moon of Jupiter. Unfortunately, the inhabitants of the Earth begin to despise their extra-planetary counterparts, resulting in increasing tensions, a rebellion and, finally, a total war.
A third game of the series was in development for a long time but, as with Silent Hills, was canceled when Hideo Kojima has broken his links with Konami. Since the exit of the second game, we have not had a new game in the series, although we have seen remasters, including a Remaster VR of the second game, we did not have a new game in the franchise since 2012. Now it seems that the franchise is about to be restarted, because Konami has recorded new brands of business area of the Enders in Europe and Japan.
Can we see a new history of Zone of the Enders? This is something we can not be sure for the moment. With Tokyo Game Show at the corner, it is likely that we will see an ad during the Konami panel, but for now, nothing has been announced. It is possible that they have renewed the mark because they have future projects for the franchise, but nothing in the immediate future. The only thing we are sure at this stage is that the brand has been renewed, which is not much to do.
