“LUDENS, the icon of Kojima Productions. We’ll deliver THE NEW PLAY in THE NEW FUTURE with the cutting-edge equipment, technology, & the frontier spirit. The gear he’s wearing is the extra-vehicular activity(EVA) creative suit.”

An ‘extra-vehicular activity suit’ is a suit that allows astronauts to survive in outer space, outside of the planet’s atmosphere.

Update: Kojima made some additional comments on the character’s design:

“This was designed with the nostalgic elements that exists in the nature/the history. On the surface of the space suit, there’s a Turing shaped pattern, (the texture you often see in the Arthropod) and the yellow cam-like device idea was brought from the Turing machine.”
