Kojima Productions Wants to Develop Anime, Manga, and Smaller Games

Kojima Productions could expand beyond big budget video game projects, according to a new interview with Famitsu. The interview with Hideo Kojima and artist Yoji Shinkawa was translated by Dualshockers (via GameSpot), and Kojima said he's interested in developing smaller video game titles. This could allegedly include episodic games or digital-only projects. However, he added that these small projects would not replace the studio's desire to work on big games like Death Stranding. [widget path="global/article/imagegallery" parameters="albumSlug=every-ign-kojima-game-review&captions=true"] Apart from video games, the studio could branch out to manga and anime. Kojima and Shinkawa both said they'd like to work on a project using Shinkawa's mecha designs. Shinkawa said working on a manga would be nice because he likes to be able to touch his work directly. Finally, Kojima added that he'd still like to make movies, which matches an interview from last year when Kojima said, "In the future Kojima Productions will start making films. If you can do one thing well, then you can do everything well." [ignvideo url=""] Death Stranding was IGN's winner for the Best PS4 Exclusive of 2019. The Kojima Productions title also won Best Game Direction at The Game Awards 2019. Kojima says he's considering developing a sequel to Death Stranding, but that the game would "start from zero."
