In a recent interview with Geoff Keighley, Death Stranding creator Hideo Kojima expressed his desire to visit Elon Musk's space transportation company SpaceX.
The interview was a part of Keighley's Summer Game Fest, a series of events during the summer period with a focus on promoting games and developers, serving as an alternative for the cancelled E3 2020.
Hideo Kojima, who is one of the most famous Japanese game designers with a "rockstar" status amongst fans, talked about his visit to Valve a few years back, and how he has a great relationship with Valve's owner Gabe Newell.

When he first visited Valve's HQ in Seattle, "when I first opened the Valve" as he said, he and Gabe quickly realised that they both have a strong passion for space.
And then Gabe told him that he knows Elon Musk and that they can visit SpaceX, but that hasn't happened, yet. Kojima said in the interview that he would really like to do that one day.

And it looks like his wish might be fulfilled quite quickly.
In response to this part of the interview, Elon Musk himself tweeted that Kojima is more than welcome to pay them a visit.

It seems like soon we might see some real photos of Musk and Kojima together, instead of Kojima-Musk memes.
The father of Metal Gear Solid series is known for his collaboration with popular public figures, and many of them are featured in Death Stranding.
On the other hand, Elon Musk likes acting, video games, and geek culture in general, so we would not be surprised if this grows into some fruitful collaboration between these to.
They are both very popular in the gaming communities, and both have a passion for creative and unique work, so who knows, this might turn out to be the beginning of the next Hideo Kojima project.
Kojima is currently working on a mysterious new game, while Musk has recently made a historic success with his SpaceX Crew Dragon sending NASA astronauts from America to the International Space Station.
