The friendship between actor Norman Reedus and game designer Hideo Kojima is a well-noted one, and recently, the pair took to social media, with Kojima jokingly “punishing” Reedus. Kojima took to Twitter over the weekend and shared a series of photos of himself and Reedus, with Kojima holding...
Ever since it first launched back in 2008, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots has been exclusive to PlayStation 3. At the time of its release, many fans assumed that the game was exclusive to PlayStation due to a deal that was worked out between Konami and Sony. However, in light of new information, it seems that this was never the case at all and the only thing that kept the title from coming to Xbox 360 was director Hideo Kojima's own willingness to port it to the platform.
Hideo Kojima is known for preserving a mystery around his games, it's kind of his thing. While there may be examples prior to this, the most significant examples began with Metal Gear Solid 2. Players bought the game assuming they'd be playing as Solid Snake once again and the game had been marketed that way. Very early on in the game, the rug was pulled out from players and they were introduced to Raiden, a character that would then become the playable protagonist of the game. With Metal Gear Solid V, the game was announced as nothing more than The Phantom Pain and was being made by a new developer named Moby Dick Studio. It was later revealed that this was the next Metal Gear Solid game, but only after an exhaustive amount of viral marketing. And finally, there was PT, another fake game from a fake studio that was later revealed to be a new Silent Hill.
Hideo Kojima seems to have subtly addressed yesterday's Death Stranding 2 leak by Norman Reedus. In a tweet early this morning, the developer shared three photos of himself and Reedus. It's not clear exactly when or where the photos were taken, and a reverse image search on Google doesn't turn up any results, but the pair appear to be in a location associated with The Walking Dead TV series, on which Reedus is a recurring cast member.
Hideo Kojima has given his impressions of Tom Cruise's long-awaited legacy sequel, Top Gun: Maverick. The first Top Gun was released in 1986, meaning it has been nearly 40 years since Tom Cruise's classic film made its mark on Hollywood. For many years, there have been rumblings of a sequel and now it's finally almost here. The film went into production in 2018 and has been subjected to numerous delays following the COVID-19 pandemic, but according to many early impressions from the Top Gun: Maverick world premiere, this one is worth the wait. Although the film won't release to the public for another couple of weeks, renowned game developer Hideo Kojima was able to enter the danger zone early.
It looks like Death Stranding and Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima might be developing a new game for PlayStation 5. Ever since Kojima and his team at Kojima Productions released Death Stranding back in 2019, fans have been wondering what the iconic game director will do next. And while some reports have suggested that Kojima's next project will be associated with Xbox, a new image shared by the creator suggests that this may not be the case.
