Kojima Productions Will Start Making Movies

Kojima Productions Will Start Making Movies

And they'll do a great job of it, apparently.

Death Stranding came out recently, which has come to a great relief to players and fans who have been long tormented by the question of what the hell it actually “is.” Turns out, it’s something akin to a three-way between a walking simulator, Metal Gear Solid, and Dark Souls. People who like Kojima broadly think that it’s stunning. People who don’t like him tend to think it’s plodding. But no matter which of those two extremes you find yourself on (there is literally no in-between), you can’t argue that the dude’s doing something different.

That said, there’s no hiding the Kojima-ness of the production. The story makes no sense. Hollywood actors are all over the place, bringing familiar voices and faces to the proceedings. And cutscenes go on for so long you have to wonder why he even bothers making video games and doesn’t just make movies.

Well, according to a BBC documentary, that’s sort of the plan. According to Kojima:

"In the future, Kojima Productions will start making films. If you can do one thing well, then you can do everything well."

First of all… no.

Second of all, seriously, no. This is why I said it’s dangerous for Kojima to have his own studio, people, his insane brain and his ego need the comforting restraints and checks of people who actually know what they’re talking about.

Third of all, this actually makes a whole lot of sense. Kojima’s sensibilities have always been more cinematic than they have been for actual games, and his outright worship of directors and actors was made clear from the moment he had the fame and sway to call upon them. People have long suspected he’d rather be making movies, and now he’s got a chance too.

If he’ll be any good at it, though?

Well, he sure as hell thinks he will be.
