Kojima promoted to Konami VP
Metal Gear creator's latest promotion sees him join executive ranks of Japanese publisher's Digital Entertainment division.
Konami has a number of wholly owned properties, but the only one to get its own category in the publisher's quarterly earnings reports is Metal Gear. Today, Konami announced that the creator of that series has been given a promotion.
As part of a round of corporate appointments and promotions, Konami Digital Entertainment said it would be raising Hideo Kojima to the position of vice president, corporate officer, effective April 1. As it stands, Kojima's current title is "executive corporate officer director, Kojima Production," having been raised to that position in March 2009.
Having begun his career at Konami in 1986, Kojima's first success came in 1987 with the release of the original Metal Gear. The famed designer has created a number of other properties for Konami over the years, including Snatcher, Policenauts, and Zone of the Enders.
Most recently, Kojima has indicated that he is at work on a new adventure game. Konami is also staffing up for a new installment in the Metal Gear Solid franchise, possibly Metal Gear Solid 5.
