As March draws nearer, more hype is building up for the release of Nintendo's next console, the Nintendo Switch. Even Hideo Kojima, creator of Metal Gear Solid, has joined in on the fun, and a video of him has popped up online playing 1-2-Switch on the Nintendo Switch.
According to Game Tyrant, Kojima was able to get his hands on the device after dropping in on a Nintendo Switch event in Australia. The clip has Kojima playing the quick-draw mode, and the veteran game developer was even cool enough to wear a cowboy hat during play. The first clip that was posted had him at a loss, but Kojima was quick to get a win in the next round.
Based on the trailer for 1-2-Switch, it doesn't look like the quick-draw cowboy mode will be the only playable version of the game. Other game modes have been teased that require players to swordfight, cast spells and yoga pose their way to victory.
Hideo Kojima and Death Stranding
Kojima is basically a rock star in the gaming community, and he has been well praised for his works on the Metal Gear Solid franchise. Just recently, Kojima has decided to quit his old company, Konami, in order to start his own independent studio called Kojima Productions, and the first game that they're working on will be Death Stranding.
Though the story and gameplay for Death Stranding still prove to be a mystery to Kojima's fans, a lot of big names have been attached to the project. Aside from Kojima, "The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) will be taking center stage as the playable character and he will be going up against Mads Mikkelsen ("Doctor Strange," "Rogue One") who will be playing the main antagonist. Not to mention "Pacific Rim" director Guillermo del Toro will also be playing a character.
No official release date has been announced for Death Stranding, but players can try out the Nintendo Switch when it comes out on March 3.
