How to find Hideo Kojima in Cyberpunk 2077
The creator of the legendary Metal Gear Solid franchise has a surprising but cool cameo in CD Projekt Red’s new open-world behemoth. Here’s how you can meet up with the genius himself.
Cyberpunk 2077 is a gigantic playground for you to play in. From its gripping narrative to its pulsing gameplay that takes you around Night City, Cyberpunk has a bit of everything.
It also has cameos from undisputed gaming icons too. It’s completely true that the brain behind MGS is fully captured in Night City’s dangerous world, and here’s where to find him in CD Projekt Red’s newest game.
Where is Hideo Kojima?
In order to grab some time with Hideo, you will have to put in a bit of work yourself. It’s not just a case of walking down a dark alley and he’s there playing a casual game of chess whilst injecting himself with the latest drug.
No, to find him, you will first have to progress through a sufficient amount of the story by completing the game’s main missions. Continue to do this until you get to The Heist mission.
Ordinarily, you might miss this easter egg as it’s very tucked away in the mission. Basically, once you and Jackie enter the Konpeki Plaza building, do not enter the elevator and do not do anything else.
What you will actually want to do, is look around and explore. Your priority should be exploring the bar, so enter it, and in the back corner of the room, you will see Hideo Kojima dressed stylishly, sporting his famous glasses, and talking to some people.
His character is actually called Oshina, but it’s fairly obvious who they are supposed to be. Get close enough to him and you’ll be able to hear his dialogue. He discusses his work, his ideas, and if you fanboy/fangirl enough, he will talk with you too.
