Hideo Kojima Edge 297 Interview: I want my games to carry a message

In an interview with Edge Magazine Issue #297, Kojima talked about his work, what he feels is important to include, and setting up his new studio.

According to the writer of the article, Simon Parkin, the details around Kojima’s new studio as still shrouded in secrecy because of concerns of litigation after the breakup with Konami. Even off the record the studio won’t confirm the current amount of staff members, and some members refuse to be photographed because they don’t want people to know where they work. “No questions about his previous games please,” Kojima’s personal assistant (Ayako Terashima) says at the start of the interview.

Despite all this, Kojima wants to take a positive approach, as he starts this new path in his career.

“I tend not to be a person who has regrets, or who wants to go back and change things. Everything happens for a reason. That’s all I’ve got.”

How did Kojima manage to stay focused during the chaotic and stressful year he has been through?

“When I was still working on Metal Gear Solid V there was a great deal of pressure to finish the game. So I was completely caught up in that act of creation. Then I immediately moved on to setting up a new company and thinking about what would be next. I had to come up with a new idea. So there was no break. I guess that activity is what has kept me going – a constant focus on creating. Without that, it would have been a lot tougher for me, I think. I had to keep looking forward. I couldn’t look back. That’s what has brought me to where I am to day. […] I never really considered making a smaller-scale game because, in truth, I want to make blockbuster games where I put everything in.”

Kojima even says that if he had been in a position where he’d only had the option to make smaller games, he would probably have left the industry altogether to make films instead. Making films is something he’d still like to do one day. “But making games is enjoyable. I want to keep doing it.”

Now with his new studio, Kojima is slowly hiring more and more people for specific roles at specific moments, as opposed to before, when he had to assign every member tasks as soon as they returned from their holiday.

“Usually, when I finish a large project, the team members all take long vacations. During that vacation period I’d typically take time to consider what I was going to do next. I need to work alone during this planning phase, so it’s always worked well in the past. That process was compressed with this project. Even before the studio had any computers or equipment, I started going back and forth with Yoji Shinkawa to go through the design ideas that I had.”

The one on the left is the first design Shinkawa came up with, but it looked too battle-oriented. Kojima wanted it to be a blend between an extra vehicular suit and an armor, so the designs kept evolivng in that direction. The design on the right looked too much like a robot, and Kojima wanted it to be clear there is a person inside.

Kojima’s games also always have an element of silliness and humor in them, and Kojima thinks this is important to keep the game from becoming too dark or stressful for the player. In contrast to film, where the director just needs the viewer to let the work wash over him for about two hours, Kojima believes games need a different approach.

“When you add in humour and change the heavy atmosphere, it creates waves of different feeling and emotion, so that the player can keep playing and coming back. But in the end, when the player finally steps away, I want them to realise that there were lessons in there.”

Kojima is known for embedding these messages into his games, and for him this is an vital part of his creations.

“It’s important to me that my games aren’t only ‘fun’. I want them to carry a message or kernel of something that players can take and use. That said, I don’t think all games need to be this way. That’s what I mean when I say that it’s going to come down to the individual creator.”

Kojima-E3-2016-Death-Stranding-Posters

One of the benefits of having his own studio is that he doesn’t have to spend as much time anymore doing things that have nothing to do with creating.

“I don’t have to attend meetings that have nothing to do with what I’m making. That definitely feels better. With this new company I’m not making it with the idea of growing it into a huge operation that grows and grows over the years. At this difficult time I just want to make a great game.”

Lately, there has been a lot of discussion about the representation of gender and race in the media and videogames in particular. How does Kojima view this?

“In my case, I don’t want to put things in my games just because they’re ‘trending’ issues; I want to only put them in because I judge they’re necessary for the story I want to tell. That’s not to say I’m not listening. It just means I’m not going to put them in the game to be tokenistic. The risk, otherwise, is these decisions become a marketing exercise. I don’t want to be led by marketing with regard to having to make every character a certain gender or race. I want to be led by what I want to make, by what is right for the story. I’m happy to be openminded during that process. That’s the way this should be approached, I think.”

Despite being one of the most well known people in the gaming industry, Kojima doesn’t consider himself a star or a celebrity, even though he is treated that way sometimes.

“I don’t think of myself as a celebrity, so I don’t feel pressure in that sense. I’m just a regular person. David Bowie was a star. I’m a person who makes things, sometimes with stars. It’s a different situation. I think of myself as something closer to an author. With books, the novels are the stars much more than the novelist is a star.”

How does creating an all new IP compare to working on a franchise that already has a set of rules, a core, that Kojima can evolve from?

“I don’t think I’ve ever gone looking for a core, as you describe it. Some ideas just keep popping. Some are instinctive. I test theories in my head. Then I break them down and rebuild them. This doesn’t quite answer the question, but it’s an accurate reflection of my process.”

“Death Stranding is a new title, so when I’m planning, or imagining, the game, there are aspects that make it freer be cause it’s not a sequel. But the process itself is very similar to how I’ve always worked.”

          Ironic.

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            Thank you very much for the compliment 😀
            Very much appreciated 😀

      • Hoxtonite

        Calm down, boyo.

    • Everyone: please behave a little. This is going nowhere.

      • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

        Sorry man
        I thought using kind words would control the mess but my comments were deleted (They deserved to be tbh)
        Well thanks for deleting the comments nyx
        You da mvp
        I hope you didn’t ban him because I kind of provoked him with my bad grammar nazi parody

        • No one has been banned, the comments have been deleted because otherwise it likely wasn’t going to stop. 😛

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            🙂
            Glad to hear that Boss
            The brig is too much of a hell for a guy like him
            Imagine if he was dismissed
            Give him a chance and he might become a s++ soldier soon

    • Hoxtonite

      Really don’t think you should be calling others trolls.

      @Nyxus:disqus GJ, though the instigation on Leguy’s part isn’t gonna stop since he’s been doing it since he was banned and before. Nevertheless, nice to see you reporting on Kojima stuff and not Pachislot stuff. :p

      Now if only you could interview him yourself… get on that, Boss.

      • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

        Listen I don’t want to start anything
        As Nyxus said “this is going nowhere”
        Btw the last part would be godly

        Edit:Calling Hideo “-another boss” was stupid

      • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

        Chill man
        I am still learning how to control my stupid behaviour
        Sarcasm and patience have helped

    • Gatsu

      I knew who you were when you appeared with this name, but didn’t mention it because I wanted to give you another chance and move on. The ban can be considered as a warning, which is why I didn’t make it permanent and I was having a bad week that time. Hoping we as adults can put it past us and behave well with each other and that GOES FOR EVERYONE.

      Also yeah the best is yet to come for Kojima-San :).

      • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

        I knew that you knew who I am
        Well I’m not an adult but yeah I’ll try to be more mature and move one
        I should probably start phase three since the first two didn’t work
        And it is:Ignore the trolls

  • BurntFM

    This is a great interview. I’m glad to see Kojima is focused and working freely in a good environment. Say what you will about Sony, but they trusted Kojima and Kojima trusted them for is “debut” game as an indie developer.

    • Yeah, just sad to see he can’t talk about his previous work and that the studio has to be shrouded in secrecy, but it’s good to see Kojima focusing on the future and staying positive, and he couldn’t have made a better choice than Sony.

      • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

        I wonder how such stupid NDAs are allowed

        • BurntFM

          Well Konami execs are awful and petty. I don’t know why people are willing to give the company yet another chance after they mistreated Igarashi and then Kojima.

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            Never forget team silent 🙁

          • BurntFM

            That and Hudson Soft. Got assimilated into Konami just to kill the Bomberman series

      • Lex Radu

        Just like Venom, focused on the future!

      • Lastation 4
      • John

        “just sad to see he can’t talk about his previous work”

        i feel that he asked that to be added before the interview as HE PERSONALLY doesn’t want to be the “Metal Gear” guy. I think he wants too make new i.p`s without konami/past things getting in the way than what most people see as konami/what he has done in the past limiting his creative freedom. I may be wrong but thats what I feel and hope.

  • Hoxtonite

    It’s bothersome to me, to know he’s under a strict NDA and can’t even so much as mutter previous works by name. It seems all a bit childish on Konami’s part but it’s still apparent Kojima is ready to move on, to greater things. If ever there was someone deserving of their own studio, it is Kojima, hands down. He’s quite humble, as ever.

    • The childishness of Konami’s behavior became apparent during The Game Awards, when Kojima wasn’t allowed to collect the award for MGSV. That’s just unacceptable.

      • Hoxtonite

        Yeah, that was a pretty poor showing. I mean, I understand if you don’t want someone being associated with you, but he helped CREATE something that brings you revenue and if he’s being recognized for it, he should be allowed by any means to accept an award. Very akin to ”No girls allowed” signs on treehouses. (exclusivity)

        • Also, it doesn’t give your company any benefits and just makes you look horrible (which is why they were boo-ed by the audience).

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            It makes them look like people with no sense of decency damn it
            Did you read the reports
            Konami has always been like this

          • Full Options

            Hideo : They won’t let me in..
            Geoff : oh ya ?? Hold on buddy.

            They well deserved it and we can be thankful to Geoff for playing the game till the end whereas many would have just shut their mouth up.

        • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

          That analogy is brilliant 😀

      • Full Options

        The box-art and buildings were quite weird too, but yeah, TGA was like… Looking forward the next edition. Hideo, a great fan of Star Wars being given his award by Mark Hamill, they took that from him… I believe JJ Abrams could leave us Mark once again next December.
        Along with Kiefer… Can’t wait..

        • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

          I think JJ Abrams might be busy with MoS 2
          It might start production in December

    • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

      Down to earth people like him gives me hope
      Konami have never been known as a company respecting human rights
      I respect them for accepting Kojima who studied as economist as a game creator but still….

    • alexis

      Didn’t he say MGS5 during this article though?? I mean he didn’t talk about it but at least he’s able to say it by name (unless that was added in)

  • I want to see some results so badly… Even though we won’t see anything until next year’s E3. I hope that the game will be big enough to have sequels in the future.

    • Maybe we’ll get something at The Game Awards?

      • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

        A secret world premiere more secret than James Bond?¿

        • He has worked closely with Geoff Keighley before for reveals, so it’s not impossible.

      • That’s not exactly what I’m talking about.
        Yes, we will see something at TGA or Playstation Experience (Maybe Mikkelsen Reveal which is also big), but it won’t be huge.

        I’m talking about at the level of “MGSV – Red Band Trailer” that has 9 minutes in it. When Kojima shows the game, he shows 9-10 minutes of it and internet go nuts.

        • Ah okay. Yeah, a (short) Mads Mikkelsen reveal trailer would be more in line with expectations.

          • Would be sweet if he gave us a reveal trailer/short teaser for each character

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            That would be even sweeter than the special water created thanks to pineapple

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            That’d be so sweet that I’d get Type II diabetes

    • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

      Well he’s still testing gameplay and writing the script
      Patience , Jedi

  • Gatsu

    Kojima is such a genius and his games do carry a message <3. I'm glad he can work more freely now that he is out of Konami. I consider him a celebrity, but it seems he does not lol. Very humble person. I can't wait to see what ideas he comes up with for Death Stranding ^_^.

  • No Place For Hayter

    Great read, based Kojima.

    “When you add in humour and change the heavy atmosphere, it creates
    waves of different feeling and emotion, so that the player can keep
    playing and coming back. But in the end, when the player finally steps
    away, I want them to realise that there were lessons in there.”
    Thank You Kojima, nobody seems to get this incredibly important lesson, use the range of emotions and feelings, you can’t highlight darkness by having everything be dark, you need light to see the darkness for all it is.

    • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

      Exactly – this is my personal issue with Game of Thrones and media like it. A sliver lining of optimism is the fine line between writing that is mature and intelligent and writing that is contrived and pretentious. You can’t create shadows without light, that just defies logic.

      • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

        I think Zack Snyder is one guy who should understand that
        He doesn’t want jokes but yet he writes ep cheesy crap at times
        Sometimes it’s amazing (Watchmen)
        Sometimes it sucks (BvS)
        Listen Zack
        “I understand that batman is brooding after Robin died
        and superman is sad that despite he saves people , they hate him

  • MrVux007

    I think Kojima doesn’t need to talk about his previous games at all.
    Some of his messages and his ideas(ideologies?) were clear in his games,and some were left for player interpretation(One of better examples is MGSV ending and the game as a whole).
    In most cases,story elements Kojima puts in his games are not purely black n white.
    I think(again i THINK),Kojima wants us,to think for ourselves when it comes to interpreting his games and messages they tell.
    Thats a beauty being an mgs fan,theories of all kind will flow

    • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

      I hate how some people want to be spoon fed

      • Tom Brearley-Smith

        Especially in games like ‘Metroid: Other M’ where in some of her monologues, Samus explains to the player how significant the interaction was. We, as gamers, need to be treated less like idiots and more like proper human beings who are capable of thinking for themselves.

        • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

          True
          Thanks to our evolution from our ancestors that predate apes like the sahelanthropus tchadensis according to hypothesis and theories,we have developed a brain that makes it necessary for us to think so that we can survive
          But if other persons have to explain everything to us , what is the need of a brain as advanced as ours.
          If we continue like this then it doesn’t mean we’ll experience a quick extinction but it doesn’t mean our race will have a “happy” ending either

      • Frederick Guese

        That’s what 4 was when someone was forced to do something the quality usually suffers.

    • Yeah, he doesn’t have to explain them, but it wouldn’t be a good thing if he can’t or doesn’t want to talk about them because of the Konami break-up. It’s still his series, that he spent 30 years on.

    One last thing weird is that Junji Tago is apparently not working with KDE anymore, but still stating “Technical Director” since March… He hopefully joined Koji-Pro with Kawakami-san… 😀

    Hmm…

    • LeGuy(CertifiedPIS)

      Zombies?
      What zombies are you talking about?

    • LeGuy(CertifiedPIS)

      For the last time , stop reminding Kojima of his past
      He isn’t related to cuntami anymore
      Deal with it

      • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

        The original post wasn’t even directed to Kojima/

        Even if it was sent to him on twitter or something, he deals with people bringing up his past everyday. He’s god; not a weakling that needs our protection from the big bad internet.

        Stop getting offended on his behalf. We can make as many Kojima vs Konami jokes as we can over here.

        • LeGuy(CertifiedPIS)

          Woahhhh
          Was my comment so toxic that people have been replying like I beat up someone to death or something like that?
          PLZ don’t hurt me
          Mwahhahahahaqhhaha
          *sobs*
          Plz don’t lynch me
          I’m just a poor boy
          I need no sympathy
          Don’t stop me nowwwwww

          • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

            I wouldn’t say it was toxic. I just think everyone should be allowed to make shitty jokes (I hope it was a joke).

            With that being said, reading the comment thread it seems like I actually may have misinterpreted the OP in a way that was more sensical than it actual was, in that case I understand your outrage lol.

          • LeGuy(CertifiedPIS)

            :3

          • LeGuy(CertifiedPIS)

            Keep the jokes coming
            We need them

        Need I remind you? You’re treading on mighty thin ice with the MGI community.

        • LeGuy(CertifiedPIS)

          Take me to the magic of the moment
          On a glory night
          Where the children of tomorrow dream away (dream away)
          In the wind of change

          P.S If treading on thin ice means that everyone obviously haven’t read what Gatsu wrote and still want to insult me then yes I agree with you

        • LeGuy(CertifiedPIS)

          Never gonna give you up
          Never gonna let you down
          Never gonna run around and desert you
          Never gonna make you cry
          Never gonna say goodbye
          Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

    • So how do we know this wasn’t Kojima’s idea?
      There are still KJP Devs working at Konami.

            I know, xD.

            You could say I was blinded by the starlight
            YEAHHHHHHHHH
            Just playing BURNTFM’s little game of linking music vids here
            I will finish what he started xD

    • Lex Radu

      Those are soooooo unrelated to each other. Hideo is talking about Trending ISSUES aka Society problems, like what happened in 2016 so far.

      No offense, with all the love, that is the dumbest image i have seen all day…and it is the end of this day!

      • LeGuy(CertifiedPIS)

        I agree
        I hope you don’t get threatened for posting your opinion

        • Lex Radu

          Why would i…we’re not savages as far as i’m concern…we are diamond dogs!

    • Lex Radu

      Plus, the Zombies was most likely’s Hideo idea on visiting Camp Omega in TPP, through Survive, it feels as it is side Story DLC, so why all the anger?

  • Jav

    He was a fan too.

    (I was watching a movie)

    Glad to see Kojima posing near something mgsv-related after that second episode of Hideotube

    • Full Options

      He is usually fine with retweeting MGS stuff, fans, cosplays, everything and should be fine to discuss MG universe, I guess. The only things that appear to logically upset the team, are questions about MGSV specifically during the split.

      • LeGuy(CertifiedPIS)

        Yeah
        Or the the story content like kingdom of the flies

        • Full Options

          I believe it is because this may have been related to the split too.. But that’s just my opinion.

    I know Kojima’s birthday has passed but I just found this:

    • LeGuy(CertifiedPIS)

      Haha xD

  • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

    An interesting new DS theory.

  • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

    Interesting new DS theory.

    Seems possible.

  • davisss
