Sad times to be sure, hopefully it will get the ok, and i’m glad hes not worrying about money, but on creativity. Here’s the full quote from Kojima via VG247
“I’m going to be treading a lot of taboos, and a lot of mature themes that really are quite risky.
Honestly, I’m not even sure if I’ll be able to release the game. Even if I did release the game, maybe it wouldn’t sell because it’s all too much. But as a creator I want to take that risk. As a producer it’s my job to try and sell the game, but I’m approaching this project from the point of view as a creator. I’m prioritizing creativity over sales.”
As the source content indicates it may just be that the way while its in concept, as his statement reads I would have to agree. Here’s hoping that it is released as is, i dont care if that means i have to buy it on Game & Watch!
