Have you ever played any of the Metal Gear Solid games or Death Stranding and thought, “Hideo Kojima should just make movies already”?
It seems that the universe heard your prayer and Kojima Productions has opened a new division in Los Angeles that will reportedly be dedicated to making movies, TV shows, and music.
This new division is reportedly being created so that the developer can branch out into different kinds of media and to make the properties created and owned by KojiPro “even more a part of our pop culture.”
As you may know, Kojima Productions is the company created by and named after the famous video game auteur Hideo Kojima, famous for the near-legendary Metal Gear Solid games.
Kojima departed from Konami back in 2015 and established his own company.
The first game they released was Death Stranding, which was a very unique and interesting game to say the least. Their second game released is the Director’s Cut of the first game, if you want to count that.
Since then, fan speculation about what Kojima’s next big project might be has been brewing.
Earlier this year, people thought a completely unrelated game called Abandoned (developed by Blue Box Games) might be a secret Kojima game.
And now, we can add movies, TV shows, and music to the list of things we can speculate Kojima’s projects will come out on.
Hideo Kojima is famous for making games with long hours of cutscenes with heavy dialogue that can easily veer off into topics of existential philosophy or economic policy or obscure US military history at the drop of a hat.
And now, he gets to make movies.
We at Emmen Gaming look forward to Kojima Productions’ first movie which will surely be directed by Hideo Kojima, produced by Hideo Kojima, written by Hideo Kojima, edited by Hideo Kojima, and starring Hideo Kojima.
