It is still a secret what Kojima’s motion capture session was for

During the latest Kojima Productions Alert (number 6), some fan questions were answered – or, in some cases, only vaguely responded to, since large parts of the answer were bleeped out.

Some people may remember the photos of Kojima doing motion capture. A fan asked what this was for.

“Unfortunately, I can’t say why exactly why we are doing motion capture. I can say that, yes, he will be [censored]. Can’t say how. That’s going to be a surprise, be looking forward to that. But I think it will make people happy. It’s a fun thing.” (Sean Eyestone)

“Everyone is going to be surprised how this turns into [censored].” (Chris Johns)


All still very secretive, but Kojima could be a recruitable soldier in Metal Gear Solid V, as he was in Peace Walker, only this time fully motion captured (and most likely 3D scanned as well). Or make a cameo appearance at least.

Back in August, Kojima also held a voice recording session, most likely for the same purpose.



But again, nothing has been confirmed yet.

    SO many hints yet no answers! Can’t he give us just one hint so everyone can stop asking? I’d like to know a little bit myself.

      I don’t really understand why it’s censored. They already wanted to say very little, but then came the line ‘I can say that’ and it’s still censored. Why, if he could say it? 😛

        One of his mind games, I suppose, like he did with MGS V at VGA last year. Sure this is a clue as to what we can expect at VGA this year.

        • Nyxus

          Yeah, true. We will also see more at TGS, I assume.

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            Hope so.

  • Hirouakan

    It would be so funny if he turns out to be a full time character, with an important role in the plot. Funny and epic.

  • o1striker

    He’ll be the guy at your base that you can tell to send your troops on ops.
    Maybe I really don’t know.

  • Cartmangus

    He’s gonna shatter the 4th wall by making himself a central character

  • PrinceHeir

    maybe a commander? 😛
