By now, it is common knowledge how close JJ Abrams, the director of Star Wars Episode VII, and Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima are. If you don’t know, Hideo Kojima and JJ Abrams highly admire each other’s work and keep in touch to talk about their projects.

This can be judged by the fact that JJ Abrams included a Venom Snake Easter egg in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. If you missed it, it was C3PO’s red bionic arm which is similar to Venom Snake’s from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

Moreover, Hideo Kojima recently visited Abrams to talk about his new studio, Kojima Productions.

However, what we all missed was the part where Hideo Kojima’s name was mentioned in the movie itself. That’s right, it was something even the most avid fans missed but when the official Star Wars website shared a dialogue transcript, Hideo Kojima easter egg was finally found.

During the Attack on Jakku scene an Alien gave a shout-out to the legendary developer.

  • Stormtroopers: “Blast that X-wing!” “Over there, over there!” — Sam Witwer and David Collins
  • Alien Villager at gunpoint from two stormtroopers (Yells and Screams) — Dee Bradley Baker
  • Stormtrooper: “Keep moving!” “Stay here!” — Matthew Wood
  • Stormtrooper: “Nothing, Sir.” “Nothing here, go ahead!” — David Acord
  • Stormtrooper: “Check over there.” “Fan out!” “Copy that, 1138.” — James Arnold Taylor and Sam Witwer
  • Red Eyed Sand Alien (watching BB-8 roll away): “Kojima.” — Robert Stambler

It took us a while to come across this easter egg, but at least we got.
