A Wiseman once said that there is victory after every defeat, and that seems to be the case with Hideo Kojima who after a very public falling out with Konami left the company after decades working upon classics such as the MGS series.

However, Kojima has bounced back in the most spectacular of ways and his latest offering Death Stranding is amongst the most anticipated games currently. Kojima has indeed come a long way, after losing his job , he set out to build his own game studio and is currently working on his latest offering Death Stranding which features a star studded cast and includes the likes of Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen amongst others.

Recently renowned Director and Kojima supporter Guillermo Del Toro took to Twitter as well to publicly bash Kojima’s former employer Konami , for their role in the events which led to  Kojima’s departure. It now however seems that Kojima is firmly focused upon the future and here is what he had to say in his own words

The year of 2016 was such a tumultuous year. Establishing the studio, planning the new game, hiring crews, finding the new base & engine, casting, building the new spaceship Enterprise. Everything had to do at once but overall I’m glad that I could announce DEATH STRANDING.


Recently Konami’s former Europe President Shinji Hirano had also joined Kojima Productions , and it is great to see Hideo Kojima back to doing what he does best.


Although it may be a while before Death Stranding releases , there are many in the gaming community who have been impressed by what they have seen in the trailer so far. The game takes on a philosophical concept of life and death and it will be interesting to see how this plays out in the game.
