Hideo Kojima has revealed the mascot of his new Kojima Productions studio to be Ludens, on which the studio's skull in a helmet logo is based.
"LUDENS, the icon of Kojima Productions," Tweeted Kojima alongside a pic of the character. You can see Ludens holding a flag featuring the studio logo.
"We'll deliver THE NEW PLAY in THE NEW FUTURE with the cutting-edge equipment, technology, & the frontier spirit.
"The gear he's wearing is the extra-vehicular activity(EVA) creative suit."
It's not clear if Ludens will actually feature in Kojima's first game since leaving Konami. We know the title will be PS4 exclusive and will include mechs, but little else has been revealed.
