Hideo Kojima may no longer be involved, but Cygames and Konami have teamed up to resurrect another game he worked on: Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner. The sequel was originally released on PlayStation 2 in 2003—with an HD collection of both games following on PS3 in 2012—and it’s set to make a comeback in remastered form on PS4 and PSVR as Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner M∀RS.
Konami currently has a worldwide launch planned for spring 2018. In addition to the PlayStation VR support, The 2nd Runner M∀RS features visuals based on the HD collection and overhauled for 4K technology, “cutting edge post effects,” and remastered audio.
Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner M∀RS will be playable at Konami’s Tokyo Game Show 2017 booth from September 21-24.
