Hideo Kojima News: IT ALL STARTED WITH A STATUE
In one of the many Zoom-like online presentations Phil Spencer has had, fans noticed that he had a figurine of Hideo Kojima‘s studio mascot.
This sparked all sorts of immediate theories worthy of an investigative show on the History Channel. Is it true that Hideo Kojima is working on a new Xbox franchise? He’s no longer a friend of Sony Computer Entertainment?
The rumor led to a series of memes, some funnier than others, that are circulating through social networks and that imagine Hideo Kojima already being part of the Xbox family at very rare levels.
This one that we show below gives us the presentation of Kojirtana, or rather Kojima in Cortana’s body. Yes, it is something quite humorous and shareable. Let’s not lose sight of him because he really looks funny.
There are also images that we do not know if they are “photoshopped or not”, one of them is that of Kojima stopping an Xbox Game Pass card. The truth is that it looks kind of fake, but, let’s imagine that he did do a little ‘product placement’.
HOW IS THE TELENOVELA BETWEEN HIDEO KOJIMA AND XBOX?
Hideo Kojima and Microsoft signed a letter in which both parties intend to work out the details about the release for a new Xbox game. This means that the lawyers representing the company and the creative are working on everything legal.
Now, this is not a story that started yesterday, according to the information available, this is a discussion that has been going on for months and it seems that they are already bearing fruit.
Likewise, we do not know what the Hideo Kojima project and the new partnership proposed with Microsoft is about, only that the technology of the North American company should be used.
Does this mean that there will no longer be agreements with Sony? Well, apparently not because here comes Death Stranding Director’s Cut and maybe there are other ongoing projects that Kojima and PlayStation are working on.
