The Exclusive Hideo Kojima Documentary Coming to Disney+

Hideo Kojima stated that his documentary, Hideo Kojima: Connecting Worlds, will be exclusively distributed by Disney+. The renowned game designer announced on Thursday that the film, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, will be available globally in the spring of 2024. Hideo Kojima: Connecting Worlds follows the innovative creator during the development of Death Stranding and offers a rare look into his creative process as he launched his studio, Kojima Productions. The film also includes “shots from the early days of our independent studio, memories from my childhood and my creative journey,” as the designer said. The documentary aims to capture the artistic side of gaming, which Kojima personifies. The announcement of the documentary comes after the official unveiling of Kojima’s next game, OD, which features a cinematic art style with horror elements. Director and comedian Jordan Peele is also involved in the game. Xbox Game Studios is publishing the title, and Kojima has expressed that it will heavily utilize Microsoft’s cloud technology. “Video gaming is an art,” director Guillermo del Toro summarizes in the documentary trailer about the Metal Gear creator. “But the only person in charge of the orchestra is the auteur.”
