Kojima Productions is using Hansoft's project management and QA software, the company said today. The software system, which is designed to support agile and lean software development, is now in use across the entire studio. "We initially started using Hansoft among a select group of managers on our team," explains Yuji Korekado, production manager at the Metal Gear house. He says that Hansoft's interface and find/report tools in particular worked well enough in the select group that the studio soon deployed Hansoft throughout its internal operations. Calling it a "magnificent tool", Korekado said Hansoft is ideal for "large-scale projects with teams of over 100 people." Kojima Productions is currently known to be at work on Metal Gear Solid: Rising. Patric Palm, CEO of Uppsala, Sweden-based Hansoft, says that the studio's adoption of the toolset is a prominent example of the country's push into Japan and China. The company localized Hansoft for Japanese and mainland Chinese with its most recent release, version 6.5, and since then says it is "increasingly winning ground in Asia." "I am really excited to now offer the same tool to Japanese and Chinese developers that has long been available to English speaking studios, and I hope to be able to help Asian studios with their project management and productivity in the same way as we have helped many American and European companies increase their productivity," says Palm.
