Hideo Kojima posts a nostalgic photo to his Twitter

In the wake of the MGSV 1984 Clothing Collection announcement, Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has posted a nostalgic photo to his Twitter, showing the rare Metal Gear Solid 2 t-shirts that were available back in 2001. The t-shirts feature an image of Japanese singer and spokesmodel for the game, GACKT, holding a baby.

When asked why someone as seemingly random as GACKT was chosen to be MGS2's spokesmodel, Kojima responded with a trademark creative reason:

The reason I asked GACKT to be on MGS2's commercials is "MGS1" was about DNA & "MGS2" MEME. DNA consists "AGTC", adding "K" of KOJIMA becomes "GACKT".

The story is too old to be commented.

this is the most Kojima-esque thing I've ever heard

Sounds like Kojima spends a lot of his time stoned to me.

@Steven,

"The reason I asked GACKT to be on MGS2's commercials is "MGS1" was about DNA & "MGS2" MEME. DNA consists "AGTC", adding "K" of KOJIMA becomes "GACKT". Do you have any Cheetos?"

It's usually hard to tell the difference between stoned and eccentric. There are tell tale signs though to see the difference. A strong desire for munchies is one of them. I fixed the above quote to show the difference.

@Steven: Or does he? What if he's like that normally?

Why don't they ask him if he really still works at Konami lol.

Timesplitter141260d ago

I think it's been confirmed that he still works at konami at the moment, but surely he's quitting after MGS5 is finished
