According to an article by Gematsu, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu has revealed some details regarding the first game of Kojima Productions. The tidbits of the interview can be found on Gematsu’s article. The interview was with Hideo Kojima (Kojima Productions boss) and Yoji Shinkawa (artist)
Kojima answers a question about his companies logo, simply saying:
“I can’t say anything yet, but there is a secret to the logo. It has a very cool body, and we even have plans to turn it into a figure.”
About the game itself, Hideo Kojima stated that they are thinking about every aspect of the game at once and experimenting with certain parts. Kojima added that:
“While not to say that it’s open-world, users who enjoy today’s AAA games (The Division and Uncharted, etc.) will be able to easily enjoy it. When it is announced, you might think ‘that’s not that outstanding,’ but you’ll understand when you see it and play it. The genre is action.”
The interview also covered the topic of virtual reality.
Kojima: “I want to make something with VR, but right now we don’t have anyone. I think VR holds the key to game development.”
Shinkawa: “VR gave me a feeling that was close to playing Famicom around the time I was a kid. I absolutely believe that a new world is being born.”
Kojima Productions is the studio that was founded by critically acclaimed video game director, producer and designer Hideo Kojima after his shock departure from Konami. The studio was founded following a series of confusing and still unexplained situations and is now working with Sony to produce Kojima Productions’ first game.
I personally am a massive Hideo Kojima fan, and am really excited to see what Kojima Productions can do! What do you think this game could be? Let us know in the comments below!
