Hideo Kojima Meets His “Soul Master” Midge Ure; “Very Exciting Things” Coming

on January 24, 2016 5:07 PM

we have been following Hideo Kojima’s technology research trip for a few days now, but today is Sunday, and the creator of Metal Gear Solid took his time to move between continents, landing in London.

He also met up with popular Scottish musician James “Midge” Ure, whom he called “my soul master.” Looks like we just found out one of Kojima-san’s sources of inspiration. 

In Japanese Kojima-san used the expression “kokoro no shisho,” which means “heart teacher” literally. It’s not something said lightly in Japan.

On the other hand, Ure teased that “exciting things” are going to come from Kojima-san.



Incidentally, if you’re wondering what’s a movie Kojima-san is looking forward to, that’s Warcraft, by Moon
Director Duncan Jones.

I’m sure I’m not the only one wondering which studios Kojima-san will visit in the UK. London Studios, which is one of Sony’s main development hubs for PlayStation VR, and Evolution Studios, with its advanced engine are both possible candidates. We’ll probably know tomorrow.
