Today, Japanese video game developer Kojima Productions celebrated its seventh anniversary and made everyone at work the envy by revealing what their new game studio looks like. And boy, hey, this studio is as over the top as you’d expect given its repertoire includes a video game with a 31 minute cutscene.
Kojima productionit’s MTV cribs-itque YouTube video is narrated by Akio Otsukathe Japanese voice actor for solid snake. The nine-minute POV video follows Otsuka as he “sneaks” into the Shinagawa Season Terrace, the new video game studio for KojiPro that doesn’t look particularly good like your typical office building. If anything, it’s more of a cross between a modern art museum and the sci-fI see more of a space station than an office. The luxurious new studio offers:
- A park where employees can host barbecues
- An art gallery space for immersive viewing experiences of death strandingConcept art and artifacts by
- On Enter the dragon-like endless mirrored hallway space with a life-size statue of Ludens
- Gender-neutral bathrooms (nothing extravagant, but nice to look at)
- A hallway from death stranding Movie posters on the walls
- quiet zones with tAtami mat floor and a bird’s eye view of the rainbow bridge
- A pop-up area for watching movies with arena seating
Throughout the video, Otsuka drops information about how the Shinagawa Season Terrace office is prime real estate for film and TV show locations. Because Kojima is such a big fan of moving images that he finally is If he dares to make his own films (God help us all), it makes sense that he would choose Shinagawa as his studio location: the district has historical significance for Japanese cinema. For my fellow cinephiles out there, Shinagawa, Tokyo is where Godzilla first set foot on Japanese soil in the original 1954 film. Also, “Shinagawa-kun‘ is the nickname of the Kaiju in 2016 Shin Godzilla. I only mention this because Kojima is a big Goji fanboy.

Suffice it to say that KojiPro’s entire new office is basically what I envision Geoff Keighley’s Shrine of Kojima to be. We even saw the room where Kojima 360-modelscans his favorite stars. Feel free to bet on whether Kojima has already scanned Al Pacino after meeting him at the Game Awards in retaliation CD Projekt Red proposes him to blow on th Idris Elba in front from put him in Cyberpunk 2077. You know, at least he thought about it. Regardless, people online had trouble picking their jaws off the floor after seeing Kojima’s lavish new studio.
“I’ve seen quite a few game studios over the years, but holy shit! That’s insanely cool,” Simon Cox, Rolling Stone‘s former content director, wrote on Twitter. “It’s like a temple, a space station, and a master class in graphics and interior design, all in one lustrous package.”
“We need a VR room from Kojima productions that we gamers can visit at any time”, a Commentator named Shinkaidesu wrote in the YouTube comments of the video.
“Wow… did DS1 are you doing well?!” asked a Twitter user.
“We’re over [here] living in 2022 while making games in 2044 lol. My goodness!” wrote one Twitter user.
I have to give Kojima props for stepping on the necks of all the collective office workers here. However, the futuristic chrome aesthetic of KojiPro’s new studio is far from my favorite video when it comes to spreading good vibes. That honor goes to the spooky game developer Ikumi Nakamura‘s newly discovered studio, Unseen. Until Kojima uploads a video of his developers teaching their kids how to “git gud” in fighting gamesNakamura hit him for having that coolest video game studio feng shui. I don’t make the rules.
