According to GamesIndustry.biz, walking simulator (KIDDING!) developer Kojima Productions will be dipping its toes into the music, television, and film industries. The new studio will be based in Los Angeles, California.
This will not be some fly-by-night operation as there is some serious leadership put at the helm. The new division will be led by Riley Russell, who has been a Sony mainstay for 28 years in various roles at Playstation including chief legal officer, and VP of business affairs.
It always seemed like Hideo Kojima was destined to be in the film industry as his games have always been grandiose. Even though I’m a believer that games have become a superior medium for storytelling, I’m glad to see that Kojima is realizing a dream of his.
My better half has gotten me addicted to HGTV. I can’t get enough of it. All I want to do now is watch The Fixer Upper, Property Brothers, Love It or List It, and what ever else is showing on the network. I don’t even care what show. The channel is always on, running in the background. I NEED AN INTERVENTION!
Anyhow, watching all these shows on HGTV has given me a keen eye into architectural style. Know what has architectural style? Kojima Productions new studio, which is simply gorgeous.
Open layout? You bet! Open layouts are the best. So airy.
Such class and sophistication. If this studio was on Love It or List, it would be a resounding “Love It!”
A lot of exciting stuff at The Game Awards 2016 last night. One of the biggest was a new trailer from Kojima Studios for Death Stranding.
First off, last night at The Game Awards seemed to be a cathartic closing of the door on Konami for Kojima and company. Kojima finally got his video game award, after being blocked from receiving one last year from is former employer.
After receiving his award, Hideo Kojima had a gift for us.
Everything about this trailer is insane. Guillermo del Toro is holding a winking baby in a glass jar. Mads Mikkelsen looks creepy with black stuff coming out of his eyes. Everything is bizarre and totally bonkers and I love every bit of it.
Death Stranding is described as an open-world action game and is the first title from Kojima Productions.
