Podcasts, wristwatches, you name it, Kojima Productions will announce it. It just won’t be a new video game. The gaming maestro’s development company is teaming up with NASA and Anicorn Watches to create a new timepiece inspired by Homo Ludens, the studio’s mascot. The unique collaboration was announced via an interesting series of tweets by the watchmaker. Apparently, this will “define a new perspective of time through timepiece.”
Kojima Productions x NASA watch will become available on September 27th

The “Space Ludens by Kojima Productions × NASA × Anicorn watches” timepiece will become available on September 27th (that’s my birthday, just letting everyone know). It’ll be sold exclusively by Anicorn and will, of course, be limited edition. There’s no other info about the watch and its specifications but here’s how Anicorn describes it:
Anicorn is honored to present the once in a lifetime collaboration timepiece – SPACE LUDENS, an epic partnership that is inspired by Ludens to proclaim creativity, imagination, and the play element in culture. Anicorn designed SPACE LUDENS with Kojima Productions using the NASA logo as one of the design motifs, it is a perfect alignment with the concept of ‘bringing fun into the unknown universe.’ The timepiece is fundamentally induced by the Ludens EVA (Extra-Vehicular Activity) Creative Suit. Ludens is the Kojima Productions studio icon and mascot designed by Yoji Shinkawa that was originally born from the idea of an astronaut exploring a digital space. We are Homo Ludens. We are those who Play.
Alright, then. Can’t wait to see how much the watch will really cost on eBay after scalpers are done with it.
