Kojima stealthily hides in Square Enix booth during Comic Con

When Kojima visited Comic Con this year, it was as if he was trapped in one his own games, because he had to hide from the hordes of fans who wanted a picture or an autograph.

On the Kojima Productions Alert 6, host Chris Johns talked about his experience visiting a crowded place full of fans that recognized Hideo Kojima.

There were so many people asking for Hideo’s autograph, he had to flee to the Square Enix booth, where he could seek refuge in the space used for storing their toy figures. This space got more roomy every day, as more and more figures were sold.


But when he tweeted something about the Square Enix booth, people figured out where he was, and fans dressed as Metal Gear soldiers began appearing and looking for him, pretending to be looking at the figures. So Kojima had to sneak out through another exit.


This isn’t the first time people have been able to sneak on Kojima. During the Metal Gear Rising tour, one fan actually waited for them at the airport, having calculated what time they would land based on the tour schedule and the previous city Kojima visited.

They also explained that Kojima does like meeting people and interacting with the fans, but he is often busy and doesn’t have the time for it.

    Huh? What was that noise?!

  • PrinceHeir

    lol crazy people

    his probably tired of answering the same old questions

    “Is David Hayter gonna voice Snake be on this game?”

    “Is Solid Snake gonna appear?”

    “When’s Metal Gear MSX Remakes?

    i actually met him a few times(3 times) and it seems he’s getting a little tired each time i’m seeing him.

    he’s not energetic as hie once was.

    Yoji Shinkawa however is still cool as ever!

    still greets you despite the long day.

      I can imagine him being tired, he has a very busy lifestyle, not to mention jet lags when traveling. I couldn’t do what he is doing. By the way, I met him once, during the MGS4 World Tour in 2008.

      • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

        Really? lucky! Maybe he will do a World Tour for MGS V so that I can meet him this time, LOL. (how did u do the subscript for MGS4, I don’t know how to do that by just using the keyboard?)

        • Nyxus

          He will probably do a world tour for MGSV, but he always visits only a few countries, so you have to be lucky. And what do you mean by subscript?

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            the way you typed MGS4 makes it look like the 4 is a subscript. never mind, I got it; just the computer I guess formatting it grammatically. anyway, hopefully he visits US in 2014 for the world tour, if it happens.

          • Nyxus

            Yeah, that happened automatically, probably just the font.

            It’s not unlikely he will visit the US, the question is, what cities. But we’ll just have to wait and see. I wonder, by the way, if GZ and TPP are separate releases if there will be two launch campaigns and maybe even two world tours.

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            Yeah given they will be separate releases it’s likely one release next year and then TPP the year after. ..or u play GZ first to get access to TPP, though I don’t think they’d go with the latter. Would be great if there were two world tours. But maybe Kojima will say more about the titles’ connection at VGA and surprise us.

          • Nyxus

            Yeah, I would like that cleared up. They have been very vague about it.

  • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

    Kojima’s got plenty of fans to keep him creatively motivated as it seems…I’m sure that motivation is being applied to MGS V.
