Honestly, I’m getting a bit sick of this now. Pictures of coffee with blurry screens in the background, lengthy talks at film festivals where nothing is revealed, and most annoyingly, a shed load of merchandise for Kojima Productions, a development team that has yet to ship a game.
Kojima mate, I know you’re the industry darling but perhaps you should make a great game then flog the merch?
Just for the record you can currently buy: Death Stranding socks, three Death Stranding t-shirts. two Death Stranding hoodies, eight Kojima Productions t-shirts, Kojima Productions socks, a Death Stranding cap, a LUDENS figure, four Death Stranding phone cases, Kojima Productions business card case, plus tote bags, key chains, patches, posters, and of course the ever essential Death Stranding hand towel.
That’s the Death Stranding HAND TOWEL.
Joining the list of tosh you can buy from Kojima before his sodding game is a posh looking watch.
Looks rather gorgeous doesn’t it? Honestly I’d be quite tempted if I wasn’t so annoyed, how much time does Kojima spend on this sort of thing when he could be making, I dunno, the game he’s being paid to make?
I presume if I did go ahead and buy one it would come packaged in a box sealed up with Death Stranding packing tape.
Yes, that’s actually a thing as well, $15 if you want to buy some.
Kojima has been doing some work on the game, or at least the box the game will come in, and has just tweeted the corner of a rejected box art image.
Trying this and that…. this one was turned down 👍🌈🔥🐟🐋🐬☔️🤣 pic.twitter.com/vP2ZOf82P9

He’s also been teasing a new trailer with an image that originally showed the video to be eight minutes long. The image in the tweet was quickly replaced by one that did not include the length of the trailer.
