Introduced and premiered final yr, Connecting Worlds—the documentary about famed recreation director Hideo Kojima—is now accessible on Disney+ for everybody to observe. And whereas it would solely enchantment to Kojima tremendous followers, it’s no less than not very lengthy, clocking in at a cool 60 minutes, or about 11 minutes lower than the well-known online game auteur’s longest cutscene.

Produced by PlayStation Studios and Kojima Productions, Hideo Kojima: Connecting Worlds is primarily a documentary concerning the early lifetime of the Metallic Gear Strong creator, and likewise a glance into how he’s making video games now at his impartial studio. As former Kotaku author Ashley Bardhan wrote in 2023:

“It avoids the subject of Konami (which Kojima left behind after three many years, establishing each his profession and cementing a considerably angsty fame) altogether, and spends the vast majority of its runtime on cherry-picked moments from Dying Stranding’s manufacturing.”

Paradoxically, for a person who is known for creating video games that have a tendency to incorporate very lengthy cutscenes, the film documentary (which to be clear, he didn’t direct or edit) clocks in at simply 60 minutes according to Disney+. If a film about Kojima is simply one other one among his notorious cutscenes, the place does it land in comparison with a few of his greatest and longest ones? Nicely, close to the highest however not at the highest.

Kojima’s longest cutscene might be present in Metallic Gear Strong 4: Weapons of the Patriots. At one level close to the top of the sport, a sequence of cutscenes with no gameplay between them begins and goes on for 71 minutes. I keep in mind placing my controller down and, about midway by, forgetting I used to be even taking part in a recreation.

Another lengthy cutscenes, which are technically shorter than his new documentary embrace the practically 30-minute-long ending to Metallic Gear Strong 3: Snake Eater and one other half-hour ending cutscene in Dying Stranding. The dude wasn’t kidding when he put in his Twitter bio that “70% of my physique is made of films.”
