AKA: KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS
Since leaving Konami, the popular game designer Hideo Kojima has had time to start up his own personal projects…including “HideoTube,” a YouTube channel that is apparently going to be about more than just gaming and games.
The channel’s first video ever was a Top 10 film list for 2015. Hideo Kojima had a guest that talked with him throughout the course of the video – novelist Kenji Yano. (Yano adapted Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain into a novel format.)
It’s…a sizeable video coming in at over 45 minutes, but the fans seem to have reacted well. You can check it out right here:

Kojima also recently made trips to Level-5 and Platinum Games this month where he met with the companies’ respective presidents Akihiro Hino and Tatsuya Minami.
The game director is also scheduled to give a keynote address at the DICE Summit next week at Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. Kojima will give a presentation titled “A Conversation with Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro,” with is former Silent Hills collaborator and director. Kojima and del Toro will go over their creative processes during the presentation.
