Hideo Kojima Discusses New Game, Says It Will Be Big and Edgy

Eager to make use of his vision, Sony signed Hideo Kojima and his newly formed studio Kojima Productions to a new deal, a brand new IP set far away from the Metal Gear universe. "We don't understand shit", del Toro jokes. Pointing his thumb at Kojima, he said "except with this man. I'll do whatever the fuck he wants".

Kojima and del Toro will be joined by journalist and host Geoff Keighley to "revisit some of their fondest memories from their own individual careers as well as some of the pivotal moments from each other's work that remain a constant source of inspiration", according to the official DICE Summit website.

He continued: "It's risky, because we're just starting up, so it probably would be better to go with something smaller-scale, maybe linear, but Sony is supporting us to make a big game that's edgy with a strong story that gives the player a lot of freedom, with new elements, and I don't know if that's possible".

Watching the talk between del Toro and Kojima, it was interesting to see two creative minds so authentically engaged with the other's output.

"I have proven to be the albatross of video games...I joined THQ [to make a game called Insane] and THQ went broke. The only things I want to do are where I'll have fun, and when we work together we always have fun".

Coinciding with Kojima's DICE show was the publication of a few interviews on video game websites.

Well, that certainly sounds promising, although if I were Kojima, I might think twice.

Kojima's level of control over his games really is unmatched, especially in today's modern landscape of triple-A gaming.

You are reading news and information on LongIsland.com, Long Island's Most Popular Website, Since 1996. The storytellers look ahead to see what they can discover. They quickly became friends, and del Toro invited Kojima to his "man cave", populated with the quirky filmmaker's games, toys and other geeky collectibles. I have no intention of changing anything I'll ever do to sell more. Japanese creators are famous for being loose with schedules, and I think people put me in that category, but it's not reality. "With that in mind, I feel extremely free".
