Lego Hideo Kojima Proves Being A Batman Fan Pays Off
As if he couldn't get more awesome.
Hideo Kojima is looking a little different in a recent Twitter post; the iconic video game producer has been made into a Lego character after he tweeted about The Lego Batman Movie, out in theaters now.
Kojima was one of several people immortalized in Lego form by Warner Bros. in Japan. He had tweeted several times about The Lego Batman Movie and included it in his monthly film recommendations.

It depicts deeply on his aloofness & his birth trauma. Only LEGO movie could have done for showing BATMAN's real nature. Masterpiece! pic.twitter.com/6oZes2pV3e
Now a confirmed Batman fan, Kojima is also famous for his work on several video game franchises, especially the Metal Gear series, which he created. In 2015 he left Konami, where he'd worked for 30 years, to found his own studio Kojima Productions.
Kojima has partnered with Sony on an upcoming PlayStation 4 game, Death Stranding, but its plot is still shrouded in mystery. Kojima says it will be an open-world action game that gives players a lot of freedom, with an online play "different...than anything we've seen before."
There is no official release date, although there are rumors it will come out in 2018 and could also be released on PC. For all the trailers and the latest news on Death Stranding check out our full coverage here.
If you're with Kojima and just can't get enough of The Lego Batman Movie, a Batman expansion for Lego Dimensions was released in February.
