Hideo Kojima’s newest sport, Demise Stranding, launched final week. Evaluations were blended, however our critic beloved it, and the sport has impressed a large number of dialogue. Over the weekend, director Hideo Kojima used to be awarded two Guinness International Information, however interestingly neither of them without delay relate to the brand new game–he’s but to gather an award for “first strand sport”, or “maximum young children in jars in a sport”.
As an alternative, 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. An in depth up of the award presentations that it in particular makes a speciality of his English account moderately than combining the 2. The award is restricted 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 keeping with his award, however that looks to have long past up significantly: his web page now presentations 918,000 fans. That is all specifically 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.
Prior to this, Hideo Kojima may just relatively declare some accountability for one different Guinness International Document: the very particular “first interactive virtual graphic novel for the PlayStation Moveable” award, held through Steel Tools Cast: Virtual Graphic Novel, which introduced June 13, 2006.
