> Kojima Productions, pre-Death Stranding, was only a subsidiary under Konami.

One would assume that if Kojima is already influential enough to get a whole studio, even named after himself, he might as well ensure, at least partial, ownership of the properties created by that studio.

These contract negotiations, for the studio's original formation, must have been a really awkward process.

On a side note, I was hoping to look up the subsidiary under the Japanese companies register out of curiosity but unfortunately they don't provide free and/or unregistered search like the one here in my country.

They also don't run their service on weekends meaning they quite literally shut down registration and other functions. I feel like that defeats the entire purpose of having a website!
