Some time ago, in a conference room at Kojima Productions...

Konami Rep: Hello, Kojima-san!

Hideo Kojima: Hello, person from Konami!

Konami Rep: So, how is the new Metal Gear game going?

Hideo Kojima: Oh, it's going great! I told the other team to have Raiden cut a watermelon!

Konami Rep: Oh, sounds interesting! But actually I was referring to the game you were working on personally, the one on the PSP...

Hideo Kojima: You mean Peace Walker? Oh, that's going well, too! We're ready to tell you about the setting now!

Konami Rep: That's wonderful! Tell us, then!

Hideo Kojima: Well, it's set in 1974, and stars Big Boss as he gets into founding Outer Heaven!



Konami Rep: Outer Heaven and Big Boss! Great! And how does he go about doing that?

Hideo Kojima: Person from Konami, if I told you that, it would spoil the game, especially when some nerd tries to imagine how this conversation goes on his C-blog!

Konami Rep: Point taken, Kojima-san! But what else can you tell us?

Hideo Kojima: Well, I can tell you that it's set in Costa Rica, and Big Boss sides with communist rebels against the CIA!

Konami Rep: Communist rebels against the USA? In the jungle? That sounds a little like the Vietnam war, doesn't it?

Hideo Kojima: Exactly! I'm glad you saw what I was going for. That, and the "Contras". I've also developed the ability to embed Wikipedia links into my speech!

Konami Rep: *Gasps*

Hideo Kojima: Useful, isn't it? Oh, and I can tell you about a hovering, sci-fi gunship that attacks the communist rebels, too!

Konami Rep: That sounds deadly! Almost like Apocalypse Now!



Hideo Kojima: Amazing! You've embedded video into your speech! You'll have to teach me that sometime!

Konami Rep: I will! But first, what did you think about my mentioning Apocalypse Now?

Hideo Kojima: I love it! It feels right! Just...

Konami Rep: Just what?

Hideo Kojima: It's just...the Huey helicopters you mentioned in your video...they played music when they went to attack the communists.

Konami Rep: Hmm. You have a point. Without the music it lacks impact. But what can we do? It would look trite and contrived if we used "Ride of the Valkyries" again.



Hideo Kojima: Indeed. Aha!

Konami Rep: Oh, did you come up with an idea?!

Hideo Kojima: I did! Let me make a quick phone call.

A short while later...

Hideo Kojima: Person from Konami, I'd like you to meet a person from Yamaha and Crypton Future Media.

Yamaha and Crypton Future Media Rep: Hello, person from Konami!

Konami Rep: Hello! Did you come up with some music to have the same kind of impact as "Ride of the Valkyries"?

Yamaha/Crypton Future Media/Yamaha Rep: Indeed we did. And Kojima-san taught me how to embed the video version in my speech, too! Check this out:



Yamaha/Crypton Future Media Rep: ...something like that.

Konami Rep: ...

Hideo Kojima: ...

Yamaha/Crypton Future Media Rep: ...

Konami Rep: ...can we put it in Rising, too?

And on April 28, 2010...
