Hideo Kojima launches his own podcast in Japan

Hideo Kojima is one of the most popular creatives in video game history. Boktai, Snatcher and especially Metal Gear are some of his most recognized works, his last work was Death Stranding and currently he is already immersed in the creation of future projects at the head of Kojima Productions. And as if that were not enough, now he will also have his own podcast, called Hideo Kojima’s Radioverse and available (only in Japanese) on Amazon Audible.

The program, which will focus on talks about video games and movies, ensures that it will offer topics “that will not be heard anywhere else.” The premiere, which will take place soon, will feature members of the 2BRO YouTube channel, which has no less than 3 million subscribers. Without a doubt, this was one of his ideas when he confessed that in 2022 he intended to “go a step further” and explore other spaces beyond the creation of video games.Hideo Kojima New Games Death Stranding Director's Cur Metal Gear Solid Amazon Audible PS5 PC Podcast Kojima Productions

Hideo Kojima and his future plans

The mind behind Metal Gear Solid and Death Stranding already looks to the future; During the last days of last year, Kojima confirmed the existence of two new video games in development, specifying that one of them is “big”, while the other will be “a new and challenging title”. The fact of qualifying the second as “new” suggests that the first of them could be part of an already established license, although for the moment no further details have emerged.

The last work of the creative was the version Director’s Cut of Death Stranding, which added a new story divided into missions that take place in an unpublished place, as well as new mechanics and activities. In addition, this version takes advantage of DualSense features such as haptic vibration and adaptive triggers.
