Hideo Kojima

Considering the nature of making games, it’s rare that a single personality can rise to prominence and actually stay there. One of those rare individuals is Hideo Kojima. Largely known for the Metal Gear Solid franchise, which he helmed for nearly 30 years, he’s now heading his own studio and put out 2019’s Death Stranding. That same year he also put out a book, though many people probably didn’t know that outside Japan. Now, however, it seems that will change.

Viz Media announced that they would localize the book under the title The Creative Gene in English later this year. The book is a series of essays penned by Kojima that details his influences and inspirations for his works. It also involves his critical analysis of some of his favorite works.

Kojima Productions has confirmed they are working on a new title, though as now no details have been revealed on what it is. The last game from the team with Kojima as Director was Death Stranding for PS4 and PC. The Creative Gene will release in English October 12th.
