Hideo Kojima’s newest sport, Demise Stranding, launched remaining week. Opinions had been combined, however our critic liked it, and the sport has impressed numerous dialogue. Over the weekend, director Hideo Kojima used to be awarded two Guinness Global Information, however apparently neither of them at once relate to the brand new game–he’s but to assemble an award for “first strand sport”, or “maximum small children in jars in a sport”.
As a substitute, Kojima has been awarded for his follower counts on Twitter and Instagram, claiming two separate awards: “maximum fans on Twitter for a online game director” and “maximum fans on Instagram for a online game director”.
Kojima, who has 811,600 fans on his Japanese Twitter account and an additional 2,813,385 million on his English language account, tweeted out an image of each awards after receiving them. A detailed up of the award presentations that it particularly makes a speciality of his English account quite than combining the 2. The award is particular to his function as a director, too–Minecraft author Markus ‘Notch’ Persson has three.7 million fans.
Kojima’s Instagram has 888,539 fans, in step with his award, however that looks to have long past up significantly: his web page now presentations 918,000 fans. That is all in particular serendipitous whilst you believe that the “like” is a big type of foreign money in Demise Stranding–Kojima turns out to place actual inventory within the energy of social media.
Ahead of this, Hideo Kojima may moderately declare some duty for one different Guinness Global Report: the very explicit “first interactive virtual graphic novel for the PlayStation Transportable” award, held by way of Steel Equipment Cast: Virtual Graphic Novel, which introduced June 13, 2006.
