Hideo Kojima wants to make a game starring Mads Mikkelsen called Mads Max. Yeah.
You can't make this sh*t up: Hideo Kojima seriously took to Twitter to let us know that he wants to make a Mad Max game starring Mads Mikkelsen that he would call Mads Max. Naturally. As one does.
No, he's not kidding. No, this is not a joke. This is coming straight from the mad genius that brought us Metal Gear Solid and Death Stranding:
I have a number of ideas that I want to create with Mads as the main character. I once explained one of them to Mads. He listened intently, but when I told him the title, he broke his face. He seemed to think I was joking. I was serious, though. The tentative title was "MADS MAX"— HIDEO_KOJIMA (@HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN) September 2, 2021
If you know Hideo Kojima, you know that he's game – if Mads is game. I mean... look at Death Stranding. Also, have you played Metal Gear? Like... all of them? I have – and I love them – and MADS MAX is definitely not the weirdest thing he's ever thought of.
Mads Max, Metal Gear Solid or Death Stranding 2: What's Next for Hideo Kojima?
Since Mads Mikkelsen doesn't seem to approve the idea, I'm guessing Mads Max is a no-go. Sad. Metal Gear Solid seems to be a closed chapter and Death Stranding 2 was just given new life, when Norman Reedus confirmed that Death Stranding 2 seems to be in development:
Any chance Mads Max makes his/its way into Death Stranding 2? I'm here for it.
Pro-Tip: If you're not already following Hideo Kojima on Twitter, you absolutely should. It's a creative gold-mine. Think something along the lines of Kanye West, except that the crazy-creativity is actually good creativity. Can someone just give this gaming-god unlimited funds to create whatever games come to mind? Oh, and also, can you get your head out of your f****ing a** and find a way to bring Metal Gear Solid back, Konami? What were you thinking ditching the mastermind in the first place?
By the way: If you haven't watched Mad Max: Fury Road yet, absolutely go and watch it. It's a masterpiece.
