Hideo Kojima Teases New Video Series “HideoTube;” Looking for Volunteers to Subtitle it in English

Do you feel sad without your regular serving of Kojima Station on YouTube? Worry not, as Hideo Kojima himself teased today a new video series, titled “HideoTube.”

“Checking the video on the go.”

We don’t know when it’ll be published or what exactly it will entail, but the Japanese name is actually quite catchy: it spells “ヒデチュー” which reads “HideChuu.” The “Chuu” part is written with the first three Katakana characters for “tube” (which is written “チューブ”), but it’s also the Japanese onomatopoeia for a kiss. Basically, it can be read as “Hideo’s Kiss.

Interestingly, Kojima Productions is also looking for volunteers to subtitle the series in English, as mentioned by Kojima-san’s assistant Ayako Terashima.

Of course, we’ll keep you posted as soon as we know more, but if you have good command of both Japanese and English, and a lot of time on your hands (subtitling is a very time consuming activity, more than many think), this might be your chance to contribute to Kojima-san’s return.
