Hideo Kojima Shows Off the Full Character Behind New Studio's Logo
Ludens aims to help deliver "The New Play in The New Future"
After falling out with Konami, Hideo Kojima officially announced his own independent Kojima Productions studio back in December, revealing a new logo (pictured right) in the process. An air of mystery surrounded the helmeted skull in the logo from the very beginning, and now Kojima has revealed the full figure known as Ludens.
In the English version of his tweets Kojima says, "LUDENS, the icon of Kojima Productions. We'll deliver THE NEW PLAY in THE NEW FUTURE with the cutting-edge equipment, technology, & the frontier spirit. The gear he's wearing is the extra vehicular activity (EVA) creative suit."
これがコジマプロダクションのアイコンである"ルーデンス(遊ぶ人)"。最先端の装備と技術、フロンティアスピリットを駆使して"新しい未来"に、"新しい遊び"を届けたいと思います。彼が着ているのは船外活動(EVA)クリエイティブ服です。 pic.twitter.com/6j9Rbsy604— 小島秀夫 (@Kojima_Hideo) May 17, 2016
