Kojima’s apparently a “huge fan” of Twilight


Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima is admittedly a fan of Stephanie Meyer’s vampire loves series, Twilight, which seems to define life for obsessed tweens. Kojima’s even judging a fan art contest based around the second part of the four-book series in celebration of the upcoming movie, New Moon.

Kojima hasn’t directly confirmed this himself, but a press release from Pixiv (the Japanese equivalent of DeviantART) does. Apparently, the press release claims Kojima’s a “huge fan” of the series. He’ll be awarding a signed copy of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots to the winner of the art contest as well.

Kojima, a fan. Who would’ve known?
