Since leaving Konami, Hideo Kojima hasn’t said much about the company until the Tokyo Game Show. Kojima specifically spoke out against Metal Gear Survive. Kojima was asked about the game and Kojima immediately distancedd himself from the project saying “That’s nothing to do with me!” He also stated “The Metal Gear games are about political fiction and espionage, where do zombies fit in with that?”
Former character and mechanical designer on the Metal Gear series, who is now working on Death Stranding with Kojima, Yoji Shinkawa also denied any involvement in the series jokingly saying “If I had worked on that game, it would have mechs in it.”
Also during the Tokyo Game Show, Konami released a 15 minute demo of Metal Gear Survive which you can check out below. It’s also interesting to note, at this time there are just over 2,000 likes and 14,000 dislikes for the video and it seems it’s getting a lot of negative reaction from hardcore Metal Gear fans already.
