Cyberpunk 2077 is chock stuffed with references to different video video games.
After the large, industry-shaking good fortune of The Witcher 3, CD Projekt RED turned into one of the most global’s most well liked sport builders. So what do you suppose came about after they went knocking at different studios about hanging a cameo of their sport?
Lots of the references within the sport are simply nods – little mentions in discussion of the upcoming unencumber of ‘No Existence 3’, mentions of Blade Runner, and a lot of names that wink to The Witcher and different gaming universes. However a pair pass a bit of deeper.
NON-STORY SPOILERS FOLLOW.
Again when Dying Stranding introduced on PC, the reliable Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account congratulated Hideo Kojima at the sport’s release in a singular approach. In addition to posting a photograph of Kojima atop one among Cyberpunk’s cars, an actual picture from a gaming conference, the publish additionally hooked up an identical render – Kojima recreated within the Cyberpunk universe as a personality type.
From Tokyo to Evening Town — that’s reasonably a experience…

Unsurprisingly, this personality type wasn’t simply created for a social media publish – Kojima may also be discovered in-game inside Cyberpunk 2077.
In the event you don’t wish to omit him, wait till you do the heist undertaking with Jackie, on the very finish of the prologue phase of the sport. Relying on how lengthy you fiddle within the open global, chances are you’ll no longer end the prologue till nearly ten hours in, or chances are you’ll hit it in a few hours.
When given the risk to duck into the resort bar, do this – within you’ll in finding Kojima sitting, legs crossed, speaking about developing emotional reports within Mind Dances, a type of VR leisure not unusual within the Cyberpunk universe. Even within the Cyberpunk universe, Oshima – as he’s referred to as right here – needs to make folks really feel ashamed in their phrases and deeds.
In the event you communicate to him, he asks you when you’re right here to pitch him a sport. So you’ll be able to pass and pitch him a PT reboot, if you wish to have, I assume.
That’s no longer all, then again! Later, in one among Cyberpunk’s not obligatory facet undertaking strands, you’ll come throughout this little fella:
Glance acquainted? This one is clearly a bit of greater than a cameo of an individual, and possibly CD Projekt needed to hash out complete permission from the rights holder of Dying Stranding… which is Kojima Productions. So possibly it wasn’t so tough in the end.
In the event you scan the container together with your augmented eyeballs, it’ll notice that the instrument “Maintains the lifetime of the BB and detects BTs”.
If you wish to in finding this man your self, merely make sure to apply the facet quest line with Evening Town PD detective River. Right through one among your investigations in combination, this shall be off in a facet room – River will also remark when you method it.
One ultimate one. If you wish to have some other apparently formally authorized cameo, make sure to try the quests to get well the Delamin cabs across the town.
Delamin is an AI-powered cab driving force in Evening Town – however a few of his cabs pass rogue, creating faults and creating bad personalities. Those personalities range from a automotive actively frightened of the street to a murderous automotive that must be seriously broken to be stopped… however then there’s one who has an all-too-familiar sing-song voice that assists in keeping speaking about cake…
Yep. One of the most Delamin cabs is Portal GLaDOS, one thing which Valve possibly allowed. Neat.
Those are simply a few the cameos we’ve found out in Evening Town over the direction of fifty hours of taking part in – who is aware of what number of extra are hiding away within the ultimate sport?
