Cancelled Hideo Kojima Project Was Basically The Boys Video Game

Cancelled Hideo Kojima Project Was Basically The Boys Video Game

While Hideo Kojima is a master of his art form, he's become something of divisive figure recently. Once known as Konami's man behind the Metal Gear games, Kojima also nearly headed up a canned Silent Hill revival, and has now released Death Stranding under his Kojima Productions banner. It turns out though, he nearly released a game that sounds just like Amazon's The Boys

We already know Kojima has finally made good on his long-rumoured partnership with Xbox, and although those whispers of something called Overdose aren't quite official yet, he's finally starting work on his first title after Death Stranding. The concept of something based on the uber-violent Supes of The Seven sounds like a money-spinner, but sadly, we'll never get to know what Kojima could've made.

What Was Kojima's Cancelled Game?

Posting on Twitter, Kojima said he's enjoyed watching Amazon's The Boys (which is based on Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's comics of the same name). He said he'd started working on a project that was similar but had "different settings and tricks." Sadly, the similarities to The Boys means he gave up on the idea.

Although he doesn't reveal much more than that, he added that it was a male and female buddy thing with "a special detective squad facing off against legendary heroes behind the scenes." More than this, he wanted to team up once again with Death Stranding's Mads Mikkelsen for the lead. Given Kojima's weird and wacky aesthetic for his games, we can only imagine that kind of out-there world of superheroes he'd build  

In The Boys, the titular squad hunt down superheroes known as Supes. Most are despicable, and in particular, the Superman-inspired Homelander is a narcissistic psychopath. Like the comics, the show has been a foul-mouthed outing that's known for its graphic violence and sexual scenes. The latest episode of Eric Kripke's show recently had its famous 'Herogasm' episode, but we'll leave it to your imagination to guess what that's about. 

 

Should The Boys Get A Video Game?

Superhero games are all the rage these days thanks to something of a renaissance that started with Rocksteady's Arkham games. We've got upcoming releases like Gotham KnightsSuicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, and Marvel's Spider-Man 2. Alongside the success of The Boys making it a prime candidate for a video game adaptation, the idea has been teased before.

Hughie actor Jack Quaid has thrown his own idea around and told ComicBook.com, "I think you could make many different games out of The Boys franchise, because there's a game you can make it all about A-Train, you can make it all about The Boys and make it like a tactical, first-person shooter, third-person shooter type of thing."

We've already seen The Boys spin-off into the animated Diabolical and the upcoming Varsity series, so to be honest, we think it's only a matter of time until we get a game. If so, someone should get Kojima on the phone.
