There's a through-line you can make in all of Hideo Kojima's games: the man loves a cutscene. The Metal Gear Solid series is notorious for its inclusion of hours and hours of cinematics, filling out the games themselves with story-heavy scenes. While the majority of games feature cutscenes, very few take things as far as Kojima. Death Stranding, too, will feature a lot of cutscenes in between the action.
The creator also famously watches a film every day, and is widely known to be a massive movie buff. It's no real surprise, then, to learn that he's thinking about the possibility of producing his own. Speaking with BBC Newsbeat in a new documentary, it sounds as though he'll be exploring the idea of making movies later down the line. "In the future, Kojima Productions will start making films," he says. "If you can do one thing well, then you can do everything well."
He continues to talk about the advent of streaming, and gaming's place within it. Kojima posits that games, movies, and TV will eventually be competing in the same space, as the masses will have on-demand access to everything. It'll certainly be interesting to see him and his team go on to make movies, and you have to imagine he already has some ideas.
