Kojima wants to expand into anime, manga and movies
Other / 26. 1. 2020

Games industry veteran Hideo Kojima is interested in developing more projects outside of video games. Which probably isn’t a big surprise to anyone who has played his heavily film-inspired, cinematic games. Speaking in the February edition of Famitsu (as translated by DualShockers), Kojima and character artist Yiji Shinkawa described what projects they would like to do following the release of Death Stranding. Both say they would like to work on a manga together, with artist Shinkawa stating he would like to work on an analog project that he can touch directly. In the interview Kojima also says that he would like to make a movie featuring Shinkawa’s designs, adding that he hopes to make something like an anime so that Shinkawa has the chance to create some mecha designs. Kojima Productions is working on multiple game projects, according to Kojima. One of these being a “big” game – although what that is exactly has yet to be revealed. The game developer also hopes to work on smaller episodic titles and digital-only games, he says. This isn’t the first time Kojima made his filmmaking plans known. Last November he confirmed to BBC that Kojima Productions will be venturing into film. “In…

Fortnite teases a Birds of Prey themed crossover event
Other / 26. 1. 2020

An intriguing back-and-forth between Fortnite and Warner Bros. over social media appears to tease the battle royale’s next big crossover event. Following a tweet from the official Warner Bros. account – a video featuring the film’s cast – Fortnite offered this curious response: “See you soon Harley!” Warner Bros. later replied “Can’t Wait” along with a kiss emoji. Huh! Can’t Wait — Warner Bros. Pictures (@wbpictures) January 24, 2020 So could a new Birds of Prey themed crossover event be in the works? The upcoming film starring actor Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn is slated to hit theaters on February 7, so the timing seems right. And it seems in line with Fortnite’s previous crossover events, which have been themed around the likes of Batman, Borderlands 3, Stranger Things, and Star Wars. But as always, take any online interaction with a grain of salt. Yesterday Epic Games announced it has extended Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 1, with plans to move the game to Unreal Engine’s Chaos system. Season 1 of Chapter 2 will now end for Fortnite players on February 20, which is when Season 2 kicks off. The post Fortnite teases a Birds of Prey themed crossover event appeared…

Konami has two new Silent Hill games in the works
Other / 26. 1. 2020

Two new Silent Hill games are reportedly in development from Konami. The news comes from Aesthetic Gamer (via our pals at Eurogamer), a Twitter account that has accurately reported on game leaks in the past. According to the account, one of the games in development will be a soft reboot of the Silent Hill franchise. The other title will reportedly be an episodic experience in the vein of Telltale Games and Until Dawn. “In other news while I’m dropping this stuff, and I think I can talk about this, I’ll mention there is a couple new Silent Hill games in the works,” Aesthetic Gamer writes in a post. “Konami about two years ago reached out to various developers to pitch ideas for two Silent Hill games, one a soft-reboot of the franchise, the other an episodic TellTale/Until Dawn-style game to go alongside the reboot. I don’t know anything more than that though, but I sure do hope Konami’s given it the appropriate budget and found the right developer to make those games succeed. “This is just a guess, but I’d say there’s a high chance one or both of those titles may be revealed this year, but we’ll see. I…

Reggie Fils-Aime stopped Nintendo from re-doing its logo in a graffiti style to attract older players
Other / 26. 1. 2020

Former COO of Nintendo of America Reggie Fils-Aime once prevented the company from “aging up” its official logo – including a plan to re-do the logo in a graffiti style. Speaking in an interview with Present Value Podcast, Fils-Aime describes a period in Nintendo of America’s history when the company was trying to appeal to an audience beyond its fanbase of younger players. The team tested out ideas for altering its logo, before Reggie stepped in. “From a branding standpoint, we had to be clear in what Nintendo as a brand stood for, as well as what the individual franchises stood for,” said Reggie. “When I joined Nintendo, there was a sense of almost shame that Nintendo appealed to young consumers, and the marketing team at Nintendo of America started doing things with the logo – that classic Nintendo logo in an oval – they would put it into graffiti style, or they’d do different things to try and age up the logo, and I put a stop to that because that is not our brand. And what we needed to do was yes, appeal to a broad swatch of consumers, but we needed to do it based on what…
