The Roof, The Roof, The Roof Is On Fire (At Konami) [Update]
If you happen to be following any Japanese people on Twitter then your news-feed is bound to be ablaze with pics of this Konami building seemingly in the process of having a fire ravage its regions. There is smoke after all.
Twitter user @wataru_hrt uploaded this pic of what is clearly smoke emanating from the Konami building in the Roppongi district in Tokyo. Kotaku has made attempts to contact Konami without any success so the assumption to be made is that they’re all dead.
This specific Konami building is also the one where Kojima Productions is based. My guess is Hideo Kojima just had a rage fit or it could be the work of a disgruntled MGS fan who is pissed that Kojima Productions ditched MGS: Rising.
On a serious note, we hope no one has been injured if it is fact an office fire and will update you as soon as we know anything else.
A Konami spokesperson has confirmed that there was in fact no fire at Konami’s Roppongi building. It would appear then that there was just a unusually high volume of building steam.
