Hideo Kojima’s new game Death Stranding, is a PS4 exclusive, and his first project with the new Kojima Productions. As per usual for a Kojima production, it’s a little trippy.
The stirring trailer begins slowly with an appropriately eerie song, the camera pans over to a naked man on a black, sandy beach littered with dead fish and crabs. Just in arm’s reach of him is a newborn baby with the umbilical cord still attached. He reaches out, clutches the baby, and with tears in his eyes, we are introduced to the main character of the game.
Norman Reedus! Rendered in stunning detail you can almost read the emotions in his eyes. It’s great to see Reedus stuck with Kojima. The trailer definitely leaves an impact.
We can only speculate about what those black things floating above naked Norman Reedus’ head are, as literally nothing else is known as of yet.
Even in the brief post E3 interview with YouTube, Kojima was elusive and shed little light on the title. He mainly confirmed Norman Reedus was the main character but wouldn’t even offer a name for him. Kojima also says, it will be unlike anything we’ve played before. As for a release window he simply says it will be “some time.”
We here at DHTG will certainly be following Death Stranding, the next game to come from the twisted, creative mind of Hideo Kojima. Watch the trailer for Death Stranding below, and you geeks be sure to keep a tab open for Don’t Hate The Geek and keep up with all our breaking E3 news.
