Konami “Doesn’t Know Anyone Called Hideo Kojima”, Not Sure Why You Would Bring It Up
“Hideo Kojima? Doesn’t ring a bell,” explained Konami’s PR representative, as they stood in front of a poster of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain with the words ‘A Hideo Kojima Game’ still quite legible under a hastily-added strip of duct tape.
“I’m sure I’d remember somebody like that working here. I have a very good memory and I’m telling you, I don’t know anybody by that name.”
Konami’s PR representative halted the interview briefly to direct the loading of several boxes marked ‘HIDEO KOJIMA OFFICE CONTENTS’ into a nearby truck.
“Nobody named Hideo Kojima has ever worked here, or been banned from returning to here on pain of death.”
“Frankly I’m a little offended that you would even ask.”
