Death Stranding is Hideo Kojima’s latest game under his new production company, Kojima Productions and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment after leaving Konami. The game features celebrities such as Norman Reedus who plays Daryl in the AMC TV Series, The Walking Dead and Guilermo Del Toro who is a Mexican film director, screenwriter, producer, and novelist.
They have now released a trailer in 4K and it is looking incredible. Lets hope this runs on the PS4 Pro with no issues which I am confident with as Kojima-san is a perfectionist and never settles for less. From what we’ve seen so far from the little teasers it’s quite hard to know what is going on exactly but it looks interesting none the less.
Hideo Kojima has mentioned that one of the Death Stranding’s main themes through a short story by Kōbō Abe, where the first tool invented by humans was a stick, used as protection and that the second tool was a rope, used to secure belongings. Kojima compared the main tools in modern-day action games involved shooting, kicking and punching where as in Death Stranding he wants people to communicate through the game’s equivalent of ropes and sticks. The name, Death Stranding, refers to when whales are washed up on the seashore.
