Hideo Kojima Speaks About The Matrix

Is Hideo Kojima's next game going to be based on The Matrix? Nope. Find out the details inside.


The latest issue of Famitsu featured a special interview with Hideo Kojima (director of Konami's Metal Gear Solid) and the Wachowski brothers (directors of the film The Matrix). Apparently, Kojima has been exchanging letters with the Wachowskis for quite some time, but he finally met them in person during the interview. The Wachowski Brothers, who play video games, said that after directing The Matrix, the first game they played was Metal Gear Solid.

Kojima and the Wachowski brothers talked about how their work shared some similarities. Kojima made a very interesting comment: "I have seen the movie four times (laughs). I like this type of work. What I was planning to do in my next project, they pretty much made into a motion picture. We were planning on certain things like characters running on walls and such, but they've beat me to it (laughs)."

Sorry folks, it's not what you have been thinking. It would be a great project if Hideo Kojima were to work on The Matrix video game, but we'll have to wait and see what his real next project is. Stay tuned.
