Game Maker Konami: Similarly Named Company in Panama Papers Is Unrelated

Game maker Konami posted the following notice on Tuesday, denying connection to a company listed on the Offshore Leaks Database:

The "Konami Corporation Limited" that appears in the Offshore Leaks Database, what is called the "Panama Papers," is entirely unrelated to Konami Group.

Last month, a group of news media outlets revealed the "Panama Papers," a collection of leaked files detailing the offshore companies used to hide unlawful activities such as tax evasion. The online Offshore Leaks Database with information on the companies went live on Monday.

I believe the real reason for the split between Konami/Kojima is because Kojima was denied his half of the Legacy.

This is why Kojima is trying to erase Portable ops from the timeline! His offshore account is in San Hieronymo!!! He doesn't want you looking for his nest egg! It's hidden under a Big T!

A big T, eh?

Well.. I guess I'll be going to my home now and... sleep.

*Runs off to San Hieronymo in a panic to get Kojima's stash*
