Metal Gear maestro Hideo Kojima recently celebrated his 58th birthday, and has vowed to continue creating as long as his body allows it.
Speaking on Twitter, Kojima-san conceded that while his body is starting to decline (hopefully by this he simply means as a result of him getting old, and nothing more serious), his creative juices are still very much flowing. As such, he plans to remain productive for as long as he can.
Although my body is failing me, my creativity is not waning yet. Until my brain loses its creative power, I’ll continue to strive to create things. That’s my instinct, and that’s what I love to do. Thank you.
He added that while about 95% of his team is working remotely in wake of the coronavirus pandemic, they were still able to throw Kojima a birthday party, including a cake with strawberries and blueberries.
Kojima’s most recent project was Death Stranding for PS4 and PC, which launched in November 2019. The game is getting re-released as Death Stranding: Director’s Cut for PS5 next month.
