One of the most bizarre events at this year’s E3 expo was the unveiling of the first trailer for Kojima Productions’ new game Death Stranding. While many watching may have felt like the video gave them no indication of what the resulting game will be like, Hideo Kojima has stated that the trailer is “representative.” According to Kojima, “What you see [in the trailer] will be in the game.” Still, however, our first look at the game was crafted to be deliberately cryptic. Kojima explains:

“There are a lot of hints in there, hidden. The world having this discussion about what this teaser means was kind of the objective. That’s what I wanted to happen. The game will take a little more time to be completed, but the game for me has already started. I am going back and forth with the users, having this interaction, this connection with the people, this discussion.”
— Hideo Kojima

So far Kojima has confirmed that the baby featured in the trailer is not a clone of Norman Reedus’ character, and the trailer as a whole is not a dig at Konami, although he
“thought people might link it.”

A few of my all-time favourite video games include The Legend of Zeldas: Twilight Princess and Majora's Mask, Mass Effect 2, Rayman 2, and most importantly, Xenoblade.

Feel free to send me a private message if you have something you'd like to discuss... or if you just want to say hi!
