Hideo Kojima reveals the new Kojima Productions mascot

Meet Ludens, the character behind the logo of Hideo Kojima's new studio.


Hideo Kojima reveals the new Kojima Productions mascot

At the tail end of last year, following his exit from Konami, legendary creator Hideo Kojima established a new studio, also titled Kojima Productions, and showed off a new logo.

The logo featured a mechanised helmet enclosing a skull, and looked pretty stylish. This is actually the face of a new company mascot, as the designer revealed this week.

Kojima tweeted a full image of the mascot. He's called Ludens, and it's going to be the studio's "icon."


Ludens is wearing a "extra-vehicular activity (EVA) creative suit", and Kojima added that the team will deliver "The new play in the new future with the cutting-edge equipment, technology, & the frontier spirit."

We know next to nothing about Kojima's next game, but we do know it'll be produced in partnership with Sony for PlayStation 4 and PC.
