Hideo Kojima Super Special Death Stranding Surprise At TGS 2018
We’re gearing up for Tokyo Game Show 2018 with many games like Sekiro and Days Gone getting new trailers ahead of their presentations at the annual convention. While these are certainly two titles PS4 fans are highly anticipating, it seems that Hideo Kojima has characteristically blown up the spot on these games by announcing a presentation centered around Death Stranding.
It’s been 2 years since I attended TGS last time. This year I decided to do a stage show accompanying with Japanese voice over actors to show my gratitude to our fans. Planning something fun. See you at PlayStation booth at 3:30pm on 23rd 👍 pic.twitter.com/EHBWIRW81V

Fans will recall that Kojima finally showed off gameplay of his new game this year during Sony’s E3 2018 press conference where we saw Norman Reedus’s character, Sam, climbing hazardous terrain with heavy boxes strapped to his back. We got a little more of a look at the game’s shadowy invisible enemies that seem to get a little handsy with our protagonist.
The trailer Kojima gives us here seems to be an amalgamation of everything we’ve seen in every other released bit of video we’ve seen for the game thus far with shots of Léa Seydoux, Guillermo Del Toro, Mads Mikkelson, and Reedus all represented. What could the September 23rd stage show at TGS 2018 reveal?
Could we finally see a release date for Death Stranding? Or perhaps a little more detail about just what the hell is going on in this story? We know that there are people covered in a black goo, and there’s like these egg pods that carry babies? And a baby is inside Norman Reedus’s throat, and…uh. I have no idea man, hopefully Kojima has a little more for us that we can wrap our heads around when he takes the stage at Tokyo Game Show on September 23rd at 3:30pm.
