Kojima Productions Has Plans To Work On Smaller Games, Anime, Manga, And Movies

Hideo Kojima wants to create smaller, episodic games.


The latest issue of Japan's Famitsu magazine includes a 30-page feature on Kojima Productions in celebration of the studio's fourth anniversary. Hideo Kojima and Yoji Shinkawa are interviewed as part of the 30-page spread, reflecting on their history together and Death Stranding's development. Most intriguingly, however, the pair also expressed their hopes for the future of the studio, discussing what types of projects they would like to work on next.

Translated by Dualshockers, Kojima said that he'd be interested in trying to develop smaller games, like episodic or digital-only titles, while still working on bigger projects more akin to Death Stranding and its time-consuming scope. Kojima has previously worked on smaller games before, of course, with both P.T. and Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes--two games set in one location during a single night.

Now Playing: The Future Of Kojima Productions - GS News Update

The studio has plans to work on multiple game projects, encompassing one "big" game along with Kojima's hopes of creating smaller titles as well. Beyond this, Kojima Productions is also interested in developing projects outside of video games. Kojima and Shinkawa both mentioned they want to create a manga together, while also floating the idea of an anime featuring Shinkawa's mecha design work. Kojima reiterated that he wishes to make movies, too, including one with Shinkawa's designs.

How many of these projects come to fruition remains to be seen, but Death Stranding is available now on PlayStation 4, with the PC version due out this summer.
