Death Stranding Key Poster Released

If you people are well aware of who Hideo Kojima is, then you must also know that this fellow is a master of developing mind-bending video games that creates all sorts of buzzes and makes history. He's intending to do that once more with his forthcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive release Death Stranding from his very own Kojima Productions. He started messing with our minds from back in 2016 and now he has taken a step further by releasing a wickedly bizarre trailer.

Well, just as soon as the trailer dropped and everyone was just recovering from having their mind-blown by the pure chaotic wickedness, Hideo Kojima took his personal Twitter account to reveal the new key visual art for the game.



Playing the role of the protagonist of Death Stranding called Sam, actor Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead) is on the primary focal point of the two posters. Both of these posters are designed in a movie-like fashion and while there are similarities in them, they are still apart. Like the first one have a close focus on Sam and the baby but the second one, despite picking the same frame has set in slight distance.

Reedus’ character is looking at the distance and probably observing the gigantic alien creatures that have taken two of his team-mates moments ago and he is holding a pod which one of his fallen colleagues dropped moments before he was taken. While the antenna-like flashlight gear attached to his back is fixed onto something, the baby he is holding inside the pod is looking straightly at the viewers.

I say, since maestro Kojima has introduced breaking of the fourth wall in video games, the baby looking straight to the viewer may be a nod to that. I mean, at this point every other eager fan is trying to piece out the clues to make some sort of sense out for this game as Hideo Kojima is playfully dropping them so often these days, anything could just mean everything!

Of course, everyone was happy that they are getting something new from Death Stranding after a long time but people were less happy after witnessing the 8-minutes of wickedness with everything that is involved to the world Kojima is creating. All we can say is that, something fascinating is coming our way and we don't even have a release date but the upcoming PlayStation Experience event may change that.
