Teaser video for game show lists special appearance by Hideo Kojima, just a placeholder?

We are in the exciting weeks leading up to E3 2015, gaming’s biggest trade show. Time for some rumors.

At NAB 2015 Rewind (a motion graphics conference), Brett Morris (technical director van Capacity, a design studio primarily focusing on motion design) gave a lecture called ‘How to Defeat a 3-Week Deadline with C4D and Octane’. He talked about a project they’ve been working on: “This project hasn’t been seen, it still hasn’t been released, but the client has given us the thumbs up to talk about it today.”

Now why is this relevant? Well, the video seems to be an intro for an (pre-)E3 show – at least, that would make the most sense given the deadline and the location. Also, when someone asked Morris on Twitter wether the video is for E3, he answered: “maybe… Maybe not…”

One of the first things you will notice is the text: ‘Special appearances: Hideo Kojima, Gabe Newell’.


Needless to say, this should be taken with a considerably large grain of salt. While the video is real, the names in the video could just be placeholders, and they could have just thrown in some big names from the gaming industry as examples. It would be somewhat unexpected for Kojima to be on any kind of stage at this year’s E3 given the situation with Konami, but it’s not impossible, since Konami said his media appearances would be ‘limited’, and a big show like E3 can generate a lot of hype. We’ll have to wait and see. To see the teaser video for yourself follow the first link in the source section below.
