Kojima comments on Obama's Nobel win

Yes he can, reckons Solid Snake's Dad.

Hideo Kojima has revealed what he thinks of President Barack Obama's Nobel prize win. Sort of.

The Metal Gear Solid made the statement on his blog (as reported by Go Nintendo).

"President Obama, who declared 'A World Without Nuclear Weapons' in Prague, has won the Nobel Peace Prize," he wrote.

"Has the era at last started shifting? The start of the Peace Walker plan? I hope that comes to be. 'Peace will not walk to you.' 'You must both walk towards one another.' From the gym."

Kojima was of course referring to forthcoming PSP game Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, which is slated for a release next year.

Wonder what Admiral Obama thought when Kojima won Famitsu's Person of the Year award back in April? Can't seem to find anything on his blog.
