Hideo Kojima Talks Making Characters More Erotic to “Make you Want to do Cosplay or its Figurine to Sell Well”

Pulling a bit of a Shuhei Yoshida, Hideo Kojima went a little Twitter happy recently, discussing how he’s trying to make characters more erotic, while also saying how you’ll be able to learn more about Quiet from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain:

I’ve been ordering to Yoji to make the character more erotic, and he did it well. Recently I’ve been making characters this way. I create the setting thoroughly, how he/she spent early life, name, style, favorite phrase, fashion, action to stand the character out. The initial target is to make you want to do cosplay or its figurine to sell well.

Dear all Cosplayers: Will be disclosing 1 of the characters in MGSV, Quiet’s CG data (including detail of her back) this Friday at midnight (PST) at Kojima Productions portal. Please refer to that for those planning to cosplay for Quiet at TGS. In fact, I was asked by one of the cosplayers. She asked the detail of Quiet as E3 trailer didn’t reveal the detail. Since I cannot reveal confidential info to individual, I decided to official announce.

The character I asked Yoji to make it more erotic, this one may not be cosplayable.

What if no one would do Quiet cosplay at TGS even though giving the info… lol.

Well, I want to see the most is Skull Face’ cosplay.

After all this, he then sent out the above header image with the caption, “Dear Cosplayer friends, something like this for example.”

Do you have any plans of dressing up as Quiet? Let us know in the comments below.
