Hidden message about Hideo Kojima found in Metal Gear Survive


I am loving Metal Gear Survive. I spent the last weekend playing it non-stop and my review will be up in the next day or two. If you want to know what it is all about then take a look at our 5 reasons to give the game a chance

The game sure does have quite a lot of controversy surrounding its release due to the lack of Hideo Kojima being part of it. As you might know, Konami sacked the acclaimed creator of the series right before the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. While the reasons were never clear to the public, many developers at Konami still feel a little hurt by the decision. So much so that they encoded a special message about Kojima and Konami right before our very eyes.

At the start of the game, after you enter your name, a list of names are shown on a clipboard to you. Your name is there and a bunch of others. Well, it seems that these other names on the list are actually codes for an anagram that spells "KJP FOREVER", in long terms, Kojima Productions Forever.

KJP is rumoured to be an internal abbreviation used to pay tribute to the former Kojima Productions since its closure in 2015. To make it worse the name sheet hides even more secrets that point to quite a negative connotation on the director of MGS. Bastard Yota and Cunning Yuji share the same first names as Yota Tsutsumizaki and producer Yuji Korekado. The worst thing about this is that the names on the list are listed as AWOL. An indirect attack if I ever saw one. 

It is clear that the team are still a bit touchy about the closure of Kojima Productions and to put this message in the game is going to cause quite a lot of internal conflict. 

What do you make of all this? Let us know in the comments below.
