'Metallic Gear' mastermind Hideo Kojima will probably be a Corridor-of-Famer
The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences will induct Hideo Kojima, father of the Metallic Gear franchise, into its Corridor of Fame on the nineteenth DICE Awards on Thursday, February 18th in Las Vegas. To place this honor in perspective, the AIAS is just like the Academy of Movement Image Arts and Sciences (the group behind the Oscars), however for video video games. Kojima is the Academy’s twenty first Corridor of Fame inductee, becoming a member of Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto, Valve Software program founder Gabe Newell and Epic Video games founder Tim Sweeney, amongst different notable figures.
Kojima joined Konami in 1986 and there constructed the Metallic Gear franchise, which largely launched and outlined the stealth style. He spent 29 years at Konami, ultimately establishing his personal in-home improvement firm, however he left the studio in October. His departure adopted a yr of modifications, rumors and shocking strikes at Konami. Kojima is now working with Sony, beneath his personal Kojima Productions model, to create a brand new collection that is console-unique to the PlayStation four.
Konami apparently prevented Kojima from attending the 2015 Recreation Awards in December, regardless that Metallic Gear Strong V: The Phantom Ache gained in two classes. We’re hopeful that he’ll have the ability to acquire his award this time round.
