We know that the Night City of Cyberpunk 2077 will be full of celebrities who will have something to give to our journey: each neighborhood will be characterized by its own style and its gangs, but there will also those – the famous cameos – that will make gamers smile. We are talking about none other than the father of the Metal Gear series, Hideo Kojima, in Cyberpunk 2077.
It will also be the case of a legendary Japanese game designer and game director, whom the guys of CD Projekt RED have decided to pay homage within their work by recreating his features and placing it as an NPC, according to what was revealed by a leak that appeared on Imgur.
We know, in fact, that some Cyberpunk 2077 copies are already around, with the Polish developer who is ready to strike to prevent spoilers from leaking on the net. In a video, which you can see at the above link, we can in fact see Hideo Kojima, legendary author of the Metal Gear series and Death Stranding, founder of the now independent Kojima Productions, while he is intent on sipping a drink and chatting on a sofa.
Rumors of his possible presence had already spread some time ago. The cameo by Hideo Kojima joins the one already confirmed by the former journalist Alanah Pearce, who in turn will also be an NPC in Cyberpunk 2077. With her also Bryan Dechart, Connor in Detroit: Become Human, will have a very unusual role.
Cyberpunk 2077 is a first-person RPG based on Mike Pondsmith’s Cyberpunk 2020 board game. As the protagonist V, a mercenary, you will have at your disposal the exploration of Night City, a city of the future where the mechanical enhancements of human bodies and their senses are the order of the day.
The game will release on December 10 on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia. The title will also be playable in backward compatibility on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, while special next-gen editions will be released next year. In recent news, it was confirmed that the game on Xbox Series X brings performance mode.
