In Japan, the Anan Awards ceremony took place, where the famous game designer Hideo Kojima received an award in the category Culture for Death Stranding. At the same time, the famous developer stated that he intends to pursue new creative directions.
According to Kojima, he plans to switch to film and music, as these are all related. Though he hasn’t made any specific plans yet. Meanwhile, Kojima Productions has opened a TV and film studio in Los Angeles, scheduled to open later this year.
In addition, in 2020, Kojima was a member of the jury of the Venice Film Festival, and once wrote that “70% is made up of films”.
But Kojima’s plans to pursue music were not previously announced. Although sound design has always been important to his games. The soundtrack to Death Stranding included tracks by Chvrches, Bring Me The Horizon, and Low Roar.
