I’m not going to bother recapping the entire Konami-Kojima debacle so far- I think it’s pretty well known now. That said, the Konami led purge of Kojima ands his name, as well the name of his studio, from all media and materials continues. After we reported yesterday that his name had been expunged from the Silent Hills website, today, it turns out that it has also been removed from the website for Zone of the Enders HD.

This essentially means that everything that Kojima had his fingers in at Konami- Zone of the Enders, Metal Gear Solid, and the upcoming Silent Hills- he is no longer being credited for as much as is legally possible. This, of course, ties in with the rumors that he is all set to leave Konami once work on Metal gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain concludes.

We will keep you posted on further developments.

UPDATE: As of right now, Konami seems to have re-inserted the Kojima name and branding in all media and descriptions on the Zone of the Enders website. The branding remains absent from other websites where it was removed from. We will keep you posted on further updates.

Thanks, VideoGamer.
