Most video game fans have at the least heard of Hideo Kojima, to others he is undoubtedly the greatest video game designer of this generation. Most known for his work in the Castlevania and Metal Gear Franchise under Konami, where he became vice president in 2011, Hideo Kojima became an independent designer in 2015. We finally get to see progress in his latest creation Death Stranding Toward the end of the last day of the Tokyo Game Show 2018, Hideo Kojima appeared on the PlayStation stage to thousands of roaring fans gathered in front, for the premier of the minute long trailer.
“I can’t believe how many people came!” he said, but watch the video linked below and you’ll know why
When asked about the current development status of Death Stranding, Kojima said that “at the moment we’re in the phase where I’m holding the controller the whole day, embedding new elements while playing the game.” As development makes progress “It’s a completely new game. Things are going according to plan, but there’s one thing. Due to the videogame voice actor strike by SAG-AFTRA (labor union) that started in 2016 and lasted a year, I couldn’t record with Norman (Reedus) and Mads (Mikkelsen) during that period. So there are some parts we are still recording.”The mysterious golden-masked character who appeared for the first time in the new trailer will be modeled on Troy Baker, who performed the voice of Revolver Ocelot in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Kojima also gave away an Easter egg in the new trailer. “When he takes off his mask and pushes it to the ground, men appear out of the mud. I’m one of them. You should be able to recognize one character who’s wearing glasses, so that’s me.”
To be honest we still don't know much about the game, there is a strange baby who could be a clone, there are aliens, call signs which may be related to the bible. Death Stranding wont be fore the faint of heart needless to say we have high hopes for this one.
