Hideo Kojima took the stage at The 2016 Game Awards to unveil a new cryptic trailer for Death Stranding, the first game from the famous game developer after leaving Konami last year to turn Kojima Productions into an independent studio.
Film director Guillermo Del Toro, who worked with Kojima on the canceled game Silent Hills, stars in this latest look. In a decrepit, dystopian city, Del Toro is seen clutching a strange device. Inside is a baby, reminiscent of the infant seen in the initial Death Stranding teaser.
Also in the trailer is Mads Mikkelsen, star of Hannibal and one of Kojima’s favorite actors. The star of film and TV has long been rumored to be a part of Death Stranding. Mikkelsen is joined by The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus in the cast, although the trailer’s credits neglected to mention Del Toro’s inclusion.
Watch a quick capture of the trailer above and check out some official art releases below. We’ll be sure to update when the official trailer hits.
Death Stranding was announced at E3 2016 during Sony’s briefing. The game is a console exclusive for PS4, but might also come to PC.
