Metal Gear Artist Creates Death Stranding Cover Art For Famitsu
Death Stranding is all but upon us, and the well-reviewed next entry from Hideo Kojima has appeared to offer no shortage of intriguing gameplay and extraordinary imagery the Metal Gear creator is famous for. To celebrate the game’s launch, Japanese publication Famitsu has revealed a fitting piece of cover art for their upcoming new issue, featuring Death Stranding artwork from iconic Metal Gear artist Yoji Shinkawa.
Having notably served as the cover artist for several games in the Metal Gear Solid franchise, Shinkawa has become known for his stunning and visually-distinct art style–especially when it comes to projects from Hideo Kojima. This signature style appears to make a return for the November 21st issue of Weekly Famitsu, it depicting several characters from Death Stranding in the weekly magazine’s brilliant new cover art. The upcoming issue was revealed by Twitter user Nibel, as seen in the post below.

Though Death Stranding nears release, it looks like Hideo Kojima isn’t slowing down his creative pursuits anytime soon, especially by the looks of a new interview. In addition to talking about his love of movies, past works, as well as potential plans for the future, the game designer also addresses whether he’d ever tackle a horror project again following his infamously cancelled Silent Hills/PT project.
Death Stranding releases for PlayStation 4 on November 8th. A PC version is expected to release sometime in 2020.
