Hideo Kojima Talks About His Thought Process When It Came To Death Stranding
After his controversial departure from Konami, Hideo Kojima is now helming his own studio (Kojima Productions) and is working on his first independent game, Death Stranding. As of now, the game's story and gameplay remain to be a total mystery to fans of Kojima; so what exactly came into Kojima's mind when he decided to work on Death Stranding?
In an interview with Glixel, Kojima talks about his decision when it came to making Death Stranding. He says, "I come up with new ideas every day and they all override each other. I had several at the front of my mind, and we ended up choosing the game that - first of all - would be best for the market, and the one we were most enthusiastic about making. That was Death Stranding."
Interestingly enough, it was pointed out that Death Stranding was a completely fresh idea, and it wasn't anything that Kojima was already thinking about back when he was working with Konami. Apparently, Kojima wanted to make sure that his game was with the times, and he even advises creatives to avoid making projects that they thought up as children because "it's no longer topical," and that the world changes every day.
Going back to the topic of trends, Death Stranding is set to star some really rising names in Hollywood. For one, the main playable character will be played by Norman Reedus, who is probably best known for his role of Daryl Dixon in "The Walking Dead." Mads Mikkelsen, who starred in NBC's "Hannibal" as well as "Doctor Strange" and "Rogue One" will be playing the main antagonist in the game, Even "Pacific Rim" director Guillermo del Toro will be playing his own character,
As of now, Death Stranding is still shrouded in a lot of mystery, but fans should expect to be updated as the year trudges on. Mikkelsen himself is said to be appearing in the next developer update. No official release date has been announced for Death Stranding.
