Last December what is now being revealed as the mere first part of the new Kojima Productions logo was revealed--see armor/skull picture. Well in a recent interview with Famitsu, Kojima said "this logo has a secret. It has a full body, a really cool full body. We're planning on putting out a figure version of it."

Kojima then went on to joke, “Couldn’t someone make like an anime or something with this character?”

For now though, fan art like artist Jarold Sng's will have to suffice.



Who's down for a lil photoshop contest though? Let's see what those sick 'n twistedly creative minds can dream up...

Kojima pretty much blew minds worldwide when he offered up the first full-body look at Ludens on Twitter today. Kojima describes Luden as the 'icon of Kojima Productions' and that Ludens sports an 'extra-vehicular activity (EVA) creative suit'.

"We'll deliver THE NEW PLAY in THE NEW FUTURE with the cutting-edge equipment, technology, & the frontier spirit," Kojima said when talking about his studio's goals on Twitter earlier.

Here's a bigger yet look at Ludens:

'F*ck Konami' Guillermo Del Toro Tweets Following Kojima's 'Death Stranding' Reveal

Last night at the Video Game Awards Hideo Kojima unveiled the first full length trailer for his in the works game 'Death Stranding'.
Kojima and the game itself have been in the spotlight due to the controversy surrounding split between Konami and the adored game director after his mistreatment during the development of 'Metal Gear Solid 5'.
Well, now Kojima collaborator and famed director Guillermo Del Toro is weighing in, taking his hard and simple stance to twitter this morning.

Mere hours after the widely well-received trailer reveal from Hideo Kojima for his new game Death Stranding, Norman Reedus took to Instagram to lay down an extra dash of hurt directly intended for Konami. 

Konami and Kojima ended their professional working relationship with one another just after Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain came out last year. Their relationship got so bad that Kojima ended up being prevented entrance from The Game Awards last year, which still has some people pretty dang riled up. Reedus no doubt managed to get a strong final word in on the matter...

Not really sure what we just watched, but at a certain point, does it really matter? Granted, if you asked me whether I expected the trailer to open on a shot of Norman Reedus waking up naked, encircled by dead fish, I'd have said 'oh f**k no.' But hey, here we are. Kojima definitely delivered on the shock value.

Now it's a matter of figuring out exactly where the direction of this game is headed...at least the reactions that are rolling in in waves right now are all highly entertaining.

The prop, named "Lu#2," was used in the announcement trailer for Kojima Production's debut PlayStation 4 and PC game, "Death Stranding."

It's breasts, you guys.  The two good reasons are her left and right jiggly puffs.  Hideo Kojima showed off this new Quiet collectable from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on Twitter, and revealed that certain parts are made with a soft material that allows them to be "pushed and lifted."  Your thumbs can be her support bra!

Japan's Nikkei Newspaper is reporting that Hideo Kojima's days at Konami are finally done, so we can all be free from the emotional roller coaster that has been rumors of his departure from the game company.

After countless reports of mistreatment, weird branding moves that minimized Kojima's involvement in his own series, and that one time Konami tried to pretend he was just on vacation, it looks like Kojima's really left Konami, and he's starting his own company!

From Nikkei, translated by NeoGAF user Zefah:

Kojima Hideo, a famous video game creator known for the Metal Gear series has left Konami Digital Entertainment as of December 15th. He will form a new company where he will continue developing video games, with plans to release on platforms such as Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE)'s PlayStation. He is forming the new company with people who worked under him at Konami. The rights to the Metal Gear series, for which he is most known, remain at Konami, so he will begin working on an all new title. Final negotiations with SCE are underway for this new game to debut on PlayStation.


I for one can't wait to see what he does with a new series. What about you?

As spotted by constablegrimes, if you go ahead and play both trailers side-by side (which is possible through YouTube Doubler) you'll quickly note that the baby originally held by Crying Norman Reedus transports itself into the hands of Guillermo del Toro in the other trailer, at the exact same moment.



What the heck is happening?
