The Boss, the female antagonist in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, is one of my favourite characters in all of gaming. So when Hideo Kojima mentioned he would like to make a game using her as the protagonist? Well, I like the sound of that!
"We've talked previously about a game featuring The Boss as a main character," said Kojima, talking at PAX. "This is something I'd really love to make."
It's also something I'd really like to play. The Boss is arguably one of the strongest female characters in all of gaming, and a games starring that character would be a great opportunity to really expand in a fresh new area, particularly if it draws on the Metal Gear Solid lore of The Boss playing a major part in ending World War II.
According to Eurogamer, Kojima added that if was to go down this direction, the game wouldn't be a spin off ala Metal Gear Rising, and would be more like an actual numbered Metal Gear title.
And while we're talking Metal Gear — Kojima also revealed his dream directors for the upcoming movie would be either Christopher Nolan or Quentin Tarantino (Tarantino please!). His choices for Snake would be Ben Affleck, Tom Hardy, or Hugh Jackman.
