Hideo Kojima was working on a game similar to The Boys

Hideo Kojima revealed that he was once working on a video game that had a very similar concept to Amazon’s. The boys. For those who somehow missed all the buzz surrounding Amazon’s flagship TV series, The boys revolves around a society where superheroes are major icons, but while they can save the day, they’re also capable of incredibly bad things. Although the general public seems to love these heroes, a small group is working to bring them down. It’s a great social commentary on giving people immense power, control, etc. The boys is currently in its third season and has been praised for its unique approach to the superhero genre while also touching on incredibly relevant themes.

Acclaimed video game developer Hideo Kojima took to Twitter to reveal that he has stopped watching The boys after seeing the first few episodes because it was similar to a game he was making and he didn’t want to copy it. Kojima went on to note that there were differences, stating that it was a “buddy” game with a “special team of detectives” battling legendary heroes behind the scenes. Kojima said he also imagines Mads Mikkelsen, who starred in Death Strandingas the game maker. It’s quite easy to see the parallels between the general premise of The boys and Kojima’s untitled game, but it doesn’t look like the latter will come to fruition any time soon, if ever. Kojima noted that it’s a project he “has been planning for a long time,” so maybe there’s a chance he still has the urge to do it.

Hideo Kojima has confirmed that he is working with Xbox on a new cloud-based game, which is rumored to be a horror game. He is also believed to be working with Norman Reedus on Death Stranding 2, but it has not yet been officially announced. Whether Kojima will make his own superhero game remains to be seen, but it sounds like a fantastic idea.
