Kojima is basically Konami's life support. He needs to leave the company so that they can pass away in peace.
I wonder what the future will hold. Mobile Suikoden? Compant merge? CapKonami... fuck.
Makes me sad as far as the fate of Suikoden and Castlevania.
Sold IPs hopefully, since they're otherwise languishing in Konami's catalog or, god forbid, doomed to become MM XOver/BoFVI style Mobile Shovelware.
Hopefully, somebody like Nintendo can get their hands on Castlevania so that they can include Simon Belmont into SSBV, as well as make an actual full-on Metroidvania where Samus Aran is actually exploring Dracula's Castle that somehow materialized on some distant planet or something.
Outside of a Kickstarter that would involve buying up the rights so that some of the original team can make a proper sequel, I can't imagine anyone doing anything exceptionally useful with the Suikoden IP.
