Hideo Kojima Clarifies That Death Stranding Is Not A Horror Game
The last project that Hideo Kojima was working on with Konami before he left was the horror game, Silent Hills. Though that project was ultimately cancelled, a lot of hype is building around Kojima's first independent game, Death Stranding, and though it may look very dark, Kojima has clarified that it is not a horror game.
In an interview with Glixel, Kojima talks about Death Stranding and how his mindset for the game is not necessarily dark. Though the trailer may seem to suggest something creepy and disturbing in the visuals, Kojima says that Death Stranding is not a horror game, and that he "just wanted to make something that looks very unique, something you haven't seen before, something with a more artistic slant to it."
Some fans may be confused as to Kojima's direction with the game as Game Rant has pointed out that the last project that Kojima was working on was of the horror genre (Silent Hills) and Kojima had also stated before that he wants to work on a VR horror game. Not to mention, the cast of the game looks to be very proficient in the horror franchise, with Norman Reedus being a series regular in "The Walking Dead" and Mads Mikkelsen playing serial killer Hannibal Lecter on NBC's "Hannibal." Even director Guillermo del Toro has worked on horror, with his latest film being "Crimson Peak" starring Tom Hiddleston.
Nevertheless, it looks like Kojima is planning something big with his company's first game, and it is sure to be something that fans of his has never seen before. What's also interesting is, Death Stranding is a completely new idea for Kojima, and it was not one of the projects that he was already thinking up before he left Konami. Kojima says that this game was what was "best for the market" and it was also what the development team was "most enthusiastic about making."
No official release date has been announced for Death Stranding, but fans should expect to be updated as 2017 trudges along.
