Hideo Kojima has praised L.A. Noire's facial technology.

The Metal Gear Solid creator said that MotionScan was "absolutely fantastic", but won't be using it in his next game.

"I'm very interested in [L.A. Noire], and I'm waiting for it to be released in Japanese," he told Edge. "I haven't played it yet but I was able to go to the studio where they were [performing the facial capture].

"The technology is absolutely fantastic. Nevertheless, for the next game I want to make, it isn't necessarily the technology I need, so I don't think it goes along with the next game I would like to create."

Kojima added that MotionScan will become "a huge element that from now on will change the direction of adventure games".

L.A. Noire developer Team Bondi has recently been surrounded in controversy, with reports of "harmful" working conditions for its staff and that Rockstar Games would not be publishing its next project.

Hideo Kojima recently suggested that one of his projects was cancelled, saying that something he spent preparing for a year "became meaningless".
