Hideo Kojima is considered an epic video game auteur. His leaving of Konami was considered a big loss for Konami’s quality, prestige and legacy.
But screw it. It’s Pachinko Time!
Konami is a big entertainment in non video game company as well and they want to make a Pachinko machine based on Kojima’s 2004 game, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, a prequel with origins that combat that of Batman Begins’ strength. It isn’t the first time there was a themed electronic device tie in as their are many movie tie ins to pinball and slot machines.
Fan backlash to this should be fairly entertaining.
