Kojima

Founder / Game Creator

Grounded in “Omotenashi,” his culture’s take on hospitality, Kojima is a Japanese game developer committed to blending technology, art and science in service to players worldwide. PS4 exclusive “Death Stranding” is his latest game, the first since splitting from Japanese publisher Konami, where he created and developed the “Metal Gear” franchise for over two decades. He was VP at Konami Digital Entertainment and kept his production label when he departed, striking a deal to make “Death Stranding” for Sony Interactive Entertainment. The 2019 release proves his status, featuring prominent actors Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen and Léa Seydoux alongside cameos from Nicolas Winding Refn, Conan O’Brien and Guillermo del Toro, the latter of whom collaborated with Kojima on his acclaimed 2014 one-off “P.T.”
