It barely seems like any time at all that we were in the midst of the furore surrounding Hideo Kojima leaving Konami. The iconic Metal Gear Solid producer looks like he’s been keeping busy though, and took to the stage at Sony’s E3 conference to showcase Kojima Productions first game since becoming independent – Death Stranding.
The PS4 exclusive title stars The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus, but beyond that the teaser trailer revealed very little about the game itself, with Reedus waking naked on a beach, a pair of handcuffs hanging from one wrist, and a newborn baby with umbilical cord lying next him.
Cradling the baby it suddenly disappears, covering Reedus’ hands in oil, and the camera pans out to reveal a stark image of the beach covered in dead marine life, while a cross mark across the character’s abdomen perhaps indicates that he did somehow have a child.
There’s some incredible imagery at work here, and with Kojima at the helm you can be fairly certain that no matter how mental it all becomes it’s going to have the potential to be a classic.
