The Konami and Hideo Kojima split is one of the most publicized, acrimonious split ups in the history of the industry, if not the most acrimonious one, and every time we think we are running out of things to discuss pertaining to it, we get something new to talk about.

Take, for instance, the new, coming from The Koalition, who noticed that former Konami president Shinji Hirano is now listed as the President of the newly formed Kojima Productions. While having someone like Hirano on board is great for Kojima, I do have to wonder about non compete and non poaching agreements that are usually standard when a high ranking employee leaves a company- would this not be in contravention of those?

It will be interesting to see how Konami reacts to this, if they react at all. Kojima Productions is currently working on Death Stranding, the excellently cerebral looking game currently due for a release on PS4 and PC.

    Wait…This guy was the president of Konami. ANYTHING bad happening to kojima was directly authorized by him.

    So why is he working with kojima again.. They should hate each other.

    Something fishy about this

      Former president not current my guess is he wanted to hand the reigns to Kojima but the board chose someone else kind of like how the former president of Sony was trying to have Ken Kutaragi replace him but Kaz Hirai was chosen instead.

      I dunno… Any theory is valid really because we can only speculate
