Imagine waking up one morning and reading a Kotaku story that reads something like: “Following Hideo Kojima’s suit, EA decides to put two of their games together and announces DragonField 4.”
Hey, sure, why not. You’re a bunch of marines in a first-person shooter game fighting… dragons. And maybe there are a few archers and mages on your side. Actually that sounds kind of cool. I would play this game.
Today, at GDC, Hideo Kojima and Konami announced Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain, which we previously knew only by its stage name, Phantom Pain. But what about Ground Zeroes, the Metal Gear game that was shown off months before Phantom Pain? Well Ground Zeroes is still a thing, but it’s not the prologue to Metal Gear Solid V we thought it would be. It actually is Metal Gear Solid V. As is Phantom Pain. They’re one game.
And if Konami can do it, why not EA? Or what about some other publishers? If you’ve got some fun ideas for game combos, drop them in the comments below.
