After all that negativity that surrounded the squabble between Konami and Kojima, and the resultant alienation of the veteran game developer even from the mainstream media of Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain, Konami is finally doing something that will please the fans.
We all know that Metal Gear Solid 5 released today and it has not disappointed, so Konami took to their official Twitter profile with something almost surprising, a well thought out thank you to Kojima-san alongside the rest of the team that has been involved in the development.
Congratulations Hideo Kojima, Ken-ichiro Imaizumi, development teams & Konami staff in Japan, UK/EU & LA. It’s an amazing game.
However, this is not the best part; the best part is the picture that they attached with it showing Hideo Kojima in the middle with two replicas of Snake’s bionic arm on the right and a poster of Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain on the left.
Oh and if you look closely, the poster reads “A Hideo Kojima Game” clearly.

So yeah, it will surprise some but I am sure Konami has finally done something that fans of the game as well as Kojima are going to applaud.
Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain released today and we are absolutely loving it.
