Hideo Kojima Wants To Do More Than Games

Hideo Kojima is a veteran in the gaming industry, so it’s understandable if he wants to look into other things.

Famitsu, a Japanese publication, interviewed Kojima Productions, and we can read it on DualShockers. There are a few points that we need to mention. Famitsu interviewed Kojima and Yoji Shinkawa – the latter is a character designer at the studio. They both talked about what they wanted to do after Death Stranding (which will launch in about four months on PC).

Both Kojima and Shinkawa said that they want to work on a manga, and the latter added that it should be something analogue (in other words, physical). Kojima would use Shinkawa’s designs for a film, and he hopes to create an anime. (As Yoji Shinkawa has worked on most of the Metal Gear games, he would have experience…) We have previously heard about Kojima going into movies in November when he talked about this subject with the BBC.

Kojima Productions is working on several games at the same time. One of them is a „big” title, according to Kojima. (If it’s not the sequel of Death Stranding, it could be a possible horror game then.) Now for the surprise: Hideo Kojima also wants to make smaller, episodic, and digital-only games as well. (Wow: did he get the virus from the former Telltale? The timing is interesting: we have recently heard about Konami willing to make a smaller, episodic Silent Hill title…)

So the Japanese genius wants to expand to more mediums. He wants to showcase his abilities outside films, and we don’t have anything to oppose it. Before leaving Konami, Hideo Kojima spent nearly three decades with the Metal Gear franchise, and Death Stranding was his first independent game post-Konami. A Death Stranding anime would be interesting, but who would reprise their role from the game?
