Hideo Kojima’s studio has opened a film, television and music department – Nach Welt

“Why doesn’t Kojima just make films?” Hideo Kojima fans have asked themselves this rhetorical question after every game since then Solid metal gear. For better or for worse, no other creator in the game industry has brought the medium closer to film than Kojima. And after hinting at his studio, it does just that.

Pro , Kojima Productions has established a music, television and film division that will operate out of Los Angeles. Riley Russell, a former Sony Interactive executive, will lead the unit to expand Kojima Productions’ cultural presence.

“The new division will be tasked with working with creative and talented professionals in the fields of television, music, film and the more popular games industry,” Russell told the sales outlet. “The team is committed to expanding the reach and awareness of the properties currently being developed at Kojima Productions and making them even more a part of our popular culture.”

Unsurprisingly, Kojima Productions goes beyond games. Kojima is known for his film-like approach to game development, and if you do follow him on twitter, you know he tweets a lot about his favorite albums and movies. The question now is how the studio will deal with the expansion. Since reforming in 2015, Kojima Productions has released a game. You can increase that number to two if you count the current Director’s Cut release of Death stranding as a separate title. What would a film adaptation of Death stranding look like? What would an adaptation of a Kojima game look like? We may find out soon enough.
