Kojima is coming at you in audio form
Hideo Kojima is one of the most prolific game developers of all time, and now he’s launching his very own podcast to share his expertise with the world. During the Gamescom stream, Geoff brought in his “very good friend” Kojima, who said that while he’s known for the games he makes, he was “here today to share some other news,” that his “podcast program will be available exclusively on Spotify.” Kojima will have various guests on the podcast from across various disciplines in the industry, so it looks like we’re going to get a pretty in-depth look at the work of a wide variety of developers.
The podcast will be available with both Japanese and English audio, with simultaneous translation. Geoff Keighley will also be involved with a segment to give players up-to-date industry news. The first episode of the podcast will be available in only a few weeks, dropping officially on September 8. The podcast is officially titled Brain Structure, which seems pretty fitting for Kojima and his brand. Kojima is still working on games, by the way — it seems that this is just a side project.
So many gamers admire Kojima and all of the work he’s done, so I’m betting this is going to be a huge success for Spotify. I know I’ll be interested in hearing more and seeing what the feel of the podcast is — game development podcasts and be a ton of fun, if you’re interested in that kind of thing.
