Joakim Mogren really was Hideo Kojima all along


Several months ago a infamous game preview was revealed during the 2012 Spike Video Game Awards called The Phantom Pain, the title was credited to a Swedish developer known as Moby Dick Studio’s, and their studio head Joakim Mogren.

Fans freaked out at the trailer. It was amazing, but it led many to speculate that The Phantom Pain was really Metal Gear Solid 5 in disguise, especially that the name of the studio head, Joakim Mogren, was actually an anagram of Hideo Kojima.

Then came an unusual interview on March 14th on GameTrailers TV with Joakim Mogren himself (screen cap seen above), which seemed to confuse more people than anything else.

Thanks to the wonders of Twitter, we now know that this was Hideo Kojima all along.
