After More Than 10 Years, Hideo Kojima Reveals MGS 2 Easter Egg

Hideo Kojima is known for his sneaky surprises. This time on Twitter he reveals a special melody that is played in the kitchen tanker from MGS 2.

The story is too old to be commented.

I've seen videos of people playing songs like "Mary Had a Little Lamb" on those things. Hell, that old G4 show Cinematech showed a video of someone doing that. Did Kojima really think people wouldn't discover that?

yeah, pretty sure me and my older brothers figured that out as well...didn't realize it was a easter egg

pedrof931714d ago

What? I knew they had different tones, I just never considered that an easter egg.

Razmossis1713d ago

I wish he would release the full cutscene for Arsenal crashing into Manhattan. It was cut because of 9/11

Enigma_20991714d ago

Yeah, because everyone that played that game specifically sought out those pans to shoot. Hell, that was the most important part of the demo![/sarcasm]

SpiralTear1713d ago

That's not the point. The point is that it's hard to consider that an "easter egg" when it's so easy to find, especially one worth "revealing" 10 years later.

I think it was cut at the writing level, where Kojima originally intended to direct such a scene, but never had the chance to do so due to the incident. I don't think there's a footage somewhere containing that said scene, as it never happened.

Ratty1713d ago

Yeah, you're right. There's no actual footage except for that video of Karen Hojo reporting about the statue of liberty having been hit or something. And that one video contained real-world footage too.

My_precious1714d ago

EDIT: Never mind me. Thought you were talking about MGS4 for some reason.

ZombieKiller1714d ago

Yeah they did have a different tone for each pan. I didn't consider this to be an easter egg though. I just thought it was cool and unintentional! This is REALLY cool to find out years later.

Seems you also like being racist. Good for you.

incredibleMULK1714d ago

Interesting observation. My wife is asian.

CrowbaitBob1714d ago

Do you also consider the word Gojirra to be racist?

I really wish idiots would stop throwing around the word racist as if it means "said something I don't like."

gigoran1713d ago

He made fun of an Asian stereotype. That is classified as racist. Defend him all you want cause all you are defending is a racist. Good for you all.

You are making fun of an Asian stereotype. That is classified as racist. Moan and defend yourself as much as you want, doesn't change the fact that what you said was 100% racist.

CrowbaitBob1713d ago

By that definition every comedian that has ever existed is 100% racist.

Read a dictionary.

rac·ism (rā′sĭz′əm)
1. The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
2. Discrimination or prejudice based on race.

You can make fun of a stereotype without being racist. In fact, he may actually like the way some people prounce their "l"s and is merely providing a gentle ribbing. Equating this kind of silliness to the autrocities of true racism is ignorant. But go ahead, keep pounding your chest in defiance against the evils of weak jokes.

well put crowbaitbob, well put. people like gigoran are the "radicals" that cast people off if the majority does as well. follow those sheep gigoran, you are a joke
