Kojima is continuing to do what he was destined to do: Make massive games.

Kojima also said this: “Now that I’m independent, I can do what I want with much more speed. I don’t need to invest time in unnecessary presentations.” And that will be even more of a relief to hear. None of this approval needed from the many rungs of Konami’s ladder, none of this muzzling in interviews because he represented Konami as well as himself.

Parkin’s piece didn’t give further information about Kojima’s new game – a collaboration with Sony and therefore a console exclusive on PS4 (but also planned for PC) – but did say the new Kojima Productions only employs four people and has no office, which means there’s a long way to go before anything resembling a game starts materialising.

The article also touched upon Kojima’s childhood and how he moved around Japan a lot when he was young, making him, as Parkin remarked, “no stranger to fresh starts”. And we also now know Kojima used to watch US television shows Little House on the Prairie, and Bewitched. I’m not sure what to do with that information but it feels important.
