Hideo Kojima’s Old Dream Is Coming True! [VIDEO]

MOVIE NEWS – Hideo Kojima is trying to do something that he hasn’t done so far.

So, Kojima Productions was reformed in late 2015, independently from Konami (after their relationship with him became strained, it was felt on Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, whose ending was rushed, plus Silent Hills was cancelled – regarding this game, Norman Reedus, the actor behind the protagonist of Death Stranding, talked about that yesterday). The studio’s name doesn’t necessarily stick them to develop games. Instead, it sounds more like a film studio when you hear the name Kojima Productions.

Perhaps for a good reason: in a new, BBC documentary that you can watch here as well, Hideo Kojima revealed his plans: he wants to expand Kojima Productions’ portfolio into making games, too: „In the future, Kojima Productions will also start making films. If a person can do one thing well, then they should be able to do anything well. I think within the next few years, gaming will move on to streaming. Movies, dramas, and games will all be streamed, and you’ll enjoy them on your iPad or iPhone or a screen anytime, anywhere. When that happens, games, films, and dramas will have to compete in the same space. I’m very interested in the new format of game that will appear on there, and that’s what I want to take on,” Kojima said.

It’s not surprising: his Twitter bio says that „70 per cent of his body is made of movies.” Metal Gear Solid 4 had a 27-minute cutscene, and it might be topped by Death Stranding (out this Friday on PlayStation 4, and in the early summer days next year on PC), which is rumoured to have a two-hour cutscene, so Kojima has some experience, even though making films is entirely different. (Until then, we think Death Stranding could get a Google Stadia port…)
