A Treat for Gamers

Metal Gear and Death Stranding designer Hideo Kojima showed up at Gamescom Opening Night Live to send a special message via a pre-recorded video. He did not talk about Death Stranding 2 or his new Xbox game. Instead, he announced his podcast’s launch on Spotify.

The show will start in September. It will be available in both English and Japanese as the famous game designer wants it to appeal globally.

Previously, his podcast Hideo Kijima’s Radioverse was presented only in Japanese and exclusively via Audible. Now, it will reach a global audience through Spotify.

Popular video game journalist, and Kojima’s close friend, Geoff Keighly, will also make an appearance.

The prologue to the show is already available on the streaming platform. Its description promises to “take a deep dive” into Kojima’s mind and “shed light on his creative process”.

Spotify recently separated music from podcasts, making it easier for its 420 million monthly active users to engage in the type of content they want. 

The streaming giant is also amping up its fiction podcast effort, with more shows like Batman Unburied coming.

As for Kojima, he is currently working on an unnamed Xbox game. Some leaks suggest the game belongs to the horror genre. He is also working on the long-awaited Death Stranding 2. The game has not been announced just yet, but its star, Norman Reedus, has mentioned that it is in development.
