Kojima launches audioblog

Yours to download right now.

Legendary Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has decided to temporarily abandon his written blog in order to "connect to fans through their ears," in the words of Kojima Productions' Ryan Payton.

Head on over to Kojima's website and you can download the first Kojima Productions Report, where Payton provides an English-language summary of Kojima's Internet radio show, Hidechan.

Listen in to find out how much attention Kojima pays to fan mail, and how he deals with stress: "I guess you can say I'm like the covert unit from Snake Eater, specifically The Fury and maybe The Sorrow. In meetings and interviews, I speak out frankly and honestly, and that helps me relieve a little bit of stress."

Future editions are set to feature English-speaking guests, such as Ken-Ichiro Imazumi, the producer of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.
