The most recent issue of Famitsu featured a 30-page special in honor of the 4th anniversary of Kojima Productions. Among the contents was an interview with Hideo Kojima and Yoji Shinkawa, which has been summarized by website Dualshockers.
In addition to working on a ‘big’ game (like Death Stranding), Kojima expressed interest in working on smaller titles as well, such as episodic or digital-only games. However, he added that he isn’t sure if he’d be able to manage all of that at the same time.
Kojima and Shinkawa also mentioned they’d like to make a manga together, with Shinkawa adding that he likes the tactile aspect of working on a project like that.
They explained that while Death Stranding has plenty of different weapons, there are few mecha. Kojima would like to do something that gives Shinkawa more mecha design work, suggesting that it could be an anime project. However, that’s something that would still be a lot of work to create, albeit slightly easier than a game project. Kojima also reiterated his interest in making movies.
Kojima said that Death Stranding is considered a weird game, but he and Shinkawa personally feel it’s not that weird and similar to what they have has done in the past, adding that they feel the need to make even weirder games.
According to Kojima, he has received a lot of praise for Death Stranding, but it also had a lot of mixed reviews, so there is still room for improvement.
