Hideo Kojima Has Been Awarded Two Guinness World Data, However Not For What You Would possibly Count on

Hideo Kojima’s newest recreation, Dying Stranding, launched final week. Opinions have been combined, however our critic cherished it, and the sport has impressed lots of dialogue. Over the weekend, director Hideo Kojima was awarded two Guinness World Data, however curiously neither of them straight relate to the brand new game–he’s but to gather an award for “first strand recreation”, or “most infants in jars in a recreation”.

As an alternative, Kojima has been awarded for his follower counts on Twitter and Instagram, claiming two separate awards: “most followers on Twitter for a online game director” and “most followers on Instagram for a online game director”.

Kojima, who has 811,600 followers on his Japanese Twitter account and an extra 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 reveals that it particularly focuses on his English account moderately than combining the 2. The award is particular to his position as a director, too–Minecraft creator Markus ‘Notch’ Persson has three.7 million followers.

Kojima’s Instagram has 888,539 followers, in keeping with his award, however that seems to have gone up significantly: his web page now reveals 918,000 followers. That is all significantly serendipitous when you think about that the “like” is a significant type of foreign money in Dying Stranding–Kojima appears to place actual inventory within the energy of social media.

Earlier than this, Hideo Kojima might fairly declare some duty for one different Guinness World File: the very particular “first interactive digital graphic novel for the PlayStation Moveable” award, held by Metallic Gear Strong: Digital Graphic Novel, which launched June 13, 2006.
