Update 1: More movie talk in the video

Update 2: Kojima has also discussed any plans he has for the Wii (see below).

“For the most part, I would never do a [Metal Gear] film without overseeing all aspects and making sure the fans and especially I am happy with it. As for that note, the idea of releasing a game to coincide with the film is an interesting one [laughs]. I might do that.” – Hideo Kojima

That’s pretty reasonable if you ask me. I shutter just thinking about how a Zelda film would turn out if Shigeru Miyamoto wasn’t involved in a heavy way.

“I’ve got a lot of ideas on my mind [for Wii], but I can’t say too much right now.”
