Death Stranding Concept “Mind-Blowing,” Says Norman Reedus
There’s no denying that the upcoming title from Hideo Kojima and company is going to be one for the books. Even though not much is known about the game at this point in time, fans not-so-patiently await any and every word to be released regarding it. That being said, those involved with the project haven’t been shy about vaguely discussing the Death Stranding concept, especially Norman Reedus.
The Boondock Saints and Walking Dead star recently sat down with the B&H photography podcast to talk shop about art, life, and a myriad of other topics. Of course, the actor wasn’t about to participate in any sort of interview without one of the most highly-anticipated games being brought up. Here’s what Reedus had to say about the Death Stranding concept:
The concept is so mind-blowing, because it’s not like, you know, ‘kill everybody and win the game’, it’s a connecting thing. It’s like the opposite. And, you know, it’s so ahead of its time. And there’s elements of social media in it, and the idea is that – you know, you have so many games, and so many parts of millennial culture I guess, is being alone in a room. And you lose physical contact with people. This is after that and the re-establishing of that physical contact.”
With development going full-steam ahead, it wouldn’t be surprising if we were to see a huge Death Stranding announcement of sorts in 2018. In the meantime, the bromance between Reedus and Kojima-san will continue to flourish, as the former also mentioned on the podcast: “I’m down with whatever Hideo wants to do because he’s another level genius, that guy.”
The full podcast can be heard right here, with the Death Stranding goodness popping up at the 41:55 mark. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as we learn more about the forthcoming title, and for other gaming news, check out the following:
