New Death Stranding details are genuine fucking nonsense

Death Stranding, the first game by Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima since he left Konami towards the end of the last year, has received some new details. Sort of.

Speaking at the Tokyo Game Show, taking place right now, Kojima spoke about how the game will feature online elements and an open world that offers a “degree of freedom”. I mean… he didn’t expand on it but… this is, literally, what he said.

He also mentioned how whales and dolphins can find themselves stranded? But… I don’t… he didn’t expand on that either.

Oh and the game will run in 4K and take advantage of HDR on the PS4 Pro. I mean, we don’t what the game is but… that’s what it’ll do.

Also Kojima has picked an engine. But he didn’t say which one. Super.

Clearly feeling guilty about how little information he had shared with the audience, Kojima took to Twitter to answer some of our most pressing questions:

 

 

WHAT? What the genuine FUCK  does that even mean? Instead of only through…sticks? I mean oh, obviously, OF COURSE, I’m so used to connecting through sticks in videogames, the introduction of ROPES is truly revolutionary.

I don’t. I can’t.

What does ANY of this mean?

 

 

Honestly, I could cry. I love Kojima, I love his work, I think he’s a mad bastard but this just… this is astounding to me.

Look at this picture:

That, ladies and gentlemen, is a picture of Guillermo del Toro, Norman Reedus, Hideo Kojima and… someone else all holding hands and holding a rope.

Why?

I don’t know.

I honestly have no idea. No clue. Absolutely baffled.

I suppose, Del Toro is involved with the project now? That would make sense… I guess? Del Toro was, after all, working closely with both Reedus and Kojima on the now (sadly) cancelled Silent Hills, so it would make sense that the three are working together again. Especially since Reedus is the star of Death Stranding.

Anyway. Has this helped? Has this cleared a few things up for you?

Sticks and ropes. Fuck me.
