For longtime Kojima-fanciers, there’ll almost be a sense of surprise that it took him this lengthy. Kojima has a records of obsessing approximately cinema and cinematics in his video games, and his bio is “recreation writer: 70% of my body is manufactured from films.” With such things as metal equipment strong four, Kojima’s team produced reams of television pictures from the fictitious setting, and narratively talking he is written the whole lot from visible novels to interactive comedian books.
