Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes: Smartphone Base Building

-Samer Farag

Hideo Kojima announced at the Eurogamer Expo today that Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes will have base-building and customization, inspired by the PSP Metal Gear Solid game, Peace Walker. 

The base can be accessed in real-time, and weapons will be available for development. To access the base, Snake can call in a helicopter at any time during a game mission. 

Kojima mentioned that base management would be perfect for smartphones. “These days there are various ways to access the game world, not just playing in your living room on your games console. You may also access your cell phone…I think in that respect that motherbase system lends itself very well to that system, and that is something we are planning on for Ground Zeroes.”

Building my base on my bus commute would be pretty cool! What do you think of this smartphone implementation?
