Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain creator, Hideo Kojima, makes a cameo appearance in the new critically acclaimed game.
Kojima Productions has put game designers in past Metal Gear games, but in the game Kojima himself can be recruited as a Mother Base worker.
In the Phantom Pain Mother Base serves as the central hub. Kojima’s speciality is Intel, has an s-rank rating and is given an A+ rank for Research and Development skills.
Kojima is able to join Mother Base if he was saved during a special side-quest in Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeros. This is explained by Kaz Miller who’s an in-game ally.
Kojima has previously made cameo appearances in several previous Metal Gear titles, such as the PSP game Peace Walker and the GameCube remaster, Twin Snakes.
