Death Stranding Updates: Guillermo Del Toro's Role Is Limited Apparently
A lot fans have been excited for the upcoming PS4-exclusive Death Stranding for many reasons. Aside from starring prominent actors like "The Walking Dead's" Norman Reedus and "Rogue One's" Mads Mikkelsen, the game will also be worked on by Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima and "Pacific Rim" director Guillermo del Toro. Bad news though, it looks like del Toro's involvement with the game is very limited.
In a recent interview, del Toro opened up that he will simply be a character in the game, and he will not be creatively involved. He said, "I'm involved as a character... Kojima-san called me and said, 'I want you to be a character in the game,' and I said, 'Gladly.' He's discussed his ideas so I could understand the character, but other than that I'm not involved, creatively, at all."
Del Toro goes on to comment that he is just a "puppet" in the hands of Kojima, and that he's working as some "cheerleader" for the game director's ideas. Rest assured, when Death Stranding comes out, it will be "entirely Kojima-san's game."
As of now, del Toro has actually been quite busy. Last year saw the release of his animated series on Netflix called "Trollhunters," and the sequel to "Pacific Rim," "Pacific Rim: Uprising," is currently shooting, and del Toro is signed on as a producer. The movie will be starring "Force Awakens" actor John Boyega and Idris Elba is also set to return.
A lot of fans were expecting del Toro to be more creatively involved in the game from the get-go, and the animated version of him in the trailer looked to be some sort of easter egg. At least now, fans have a clear idea on his involvement with Death Stranding. Hopefully del Toro is happier with the outcome of this game as compared to his cancelled Silent Hills project with Konami.
No official release date has been announced for Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding. But fans are hoping that it will come out sometime this year.
