Hideo Kojima, the creative mastermind behind the stealth action Metal Gear series, will return to GDC this year to speak about his company's new graphics engine, according to a press release from the event's organizers.
In a talk called "Photorealism through the eyes of a 'FOX': The Core of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes," he will discuss Kojima Productions' creation of the multiplatform Fox Engine, which will power upcoming games. Kojima's talk will also include a demonstration of the Fox Engine.
He last spoke at GDC in 2009, the same year he received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Game Developers Choice Awards.
Kojima discussed Fox Engine last year at PAX Prime, where he said the company could use it to make everything from first-person shooters to a third-person action game like the Uncharted series. You can check out its graphical prowess in the Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes trailer from PAX Prime.
GDC 2013 will take place from March 25-29, and Polygon will be there to bring you all the news. Other speakers already announced include the developers of Halo 4 and Hitman: Absolution, as well as Journey and Dishonored.
