Metal Gear Survive easter egg shouts out Kojima Productions

Metal Gear Survive easter egg shouts out Kojima Productions

Metal Gear Survive doesn't live up to the series' legacy. The KJP letters presumably are meant to refer to Hideo Kojima's new studio, Kojima Productions.

The Metal Gear Survive grind seems to have captured the attention of many gamers in the last week, despite mediocre review scores, and players are pouring hours into the title. While there has been no official confirmation regarding the matter, it's a little hard to brand this development as mere coincidence, not when it's this ideal.

It's no secret that Konami is likely one of the least popular video game companies right now, largely because of its treatment of Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima.

It's probably worth noting that the first name on the list, Vengeful Mosquito, looks like a reference to Mosquito, a key figure in the events of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain and Ground Zeroes.

Fans reflect on unforgettable Olympics experience in Pyeongchang
Athletes are now competing into their 40s and occasionally come out of retirement to compete at the Olympics. Especially regarding the South-North relations, it offered a chance to ease tension on the Korean Peninsula.

In the opening moments of Metal Gear Survive, after you type in your character name, a cut-scene plays that shows a list of names including your own and those of your comrades.

As posted by freelance gaming journalist "Jed Whitaker", a rather interesting tidbit was hidden in the game, which directly praises Kojima Productions and calls the Metal Gear Survive producer Yuji Korekado "cunning", and the game's director, Yota Tsutsumizaki, a "bastard".

Needless to say, Kojima himself has nothing to do with Metal Gear Survive, and when asked about it following the game's announcement, stated he feels zombies don't belong in the franchise.

When creating a character, players briefly see a glimpse of a clipboard.
