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.

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.
