In a new commentary video under Kojima Productions, renowned video game director Hideo Kojima says that a severe illness brought him to his lowest—and eventually gave him motivation to create Physint, the new action-espionage game announced this week.
In the first episode of “HideoTube” in seven years, Kojima sat to talk about the upcoming games announced during this week’s State of Play and November’s Game Awards. Also featured are Risa Unai, a newscaster known in Japan for being a gamer, as well as Sam Bridges’ Japanese voice actor, Kenjiro Tsuda, who also voices Kento Nanami in Jujutsu Kaisen and Overhaul in My Hero Academia, plus English actors from the games that already have trailers.
The full episode of HideoTube lets Kojima get into commentary on the Death Stranding 2 trailer shown during the Sony State of Play stream. The trailer clocked in at nearly ten minutes long and, despite its “Hollywood AAA game” approach, features a quirky cast of characters that could rival a classic beloved JRPG. This YouTube video also previews the Hideo Kojima: Connecting Worlds documentary hitting Disney+ soon, and OD, the horror game with Jordan Peele as part of the creative team.
