Hideo Kojima is currently developing Death Stranding over at the new Kojima Productions, after his fallout with Konami. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have time for something else on the side.
Gamasutra reports the Metal Gear creator has joined the advisory board of Prologue Immersive, a virtual and augmented reality company. The company has worked on big-budget films such as Iron Man, Prometheus, and Godzilla, but also specializes in learning software using virtual and augmented reality. Other notable board members include Kyle and Kimberly Cooper, who has designed a number of film and game title sequences, including those for Metal Gear Solid 2, 3 and V.

It makes sense that Kojima, a man whose works never been reticent about exploring the limits of technology both thematically and literally, would take on an advisory position at a VR Company. It’s unclear how much of an impact he will have on the company’s work, however.
