Hideo Kojima took to Twitter to hint at a massive Death Stranding update being on the horizon. The founder of the newly independent Kojima Studios teased the upcoming deep dive fans will be getting into Death Stranding at E3 2018 with some Twitter photos showing the developer hard at work on editing game footage.
Death Stranding is one of the most heavily anticipated games in recent memory. With Hideo Kojima freed from the negativity that has become synonymous with the final years of his tenure at Konami, many fans are anticipating the new game to be one of the renowned developer's greatest works. While little has been shown in the way of gameplay, Kojima's next project has found a home at the center of a storm of excitement thanks to some bizarre and unsettling trailers. Throat babies, death clouds, and black ooze are only some of the strange imagery fans can expect from the Death Stranding experience thus far.
That strangeness is certainly going to be in play for the next Death Stranding trailer as well. Kojima's Twitter posts featured a couple close-up shots of him in front of his computer, and his monitor did not disappoint. The baby at the core of the last trailer's mystery is front and center, offering a thumbs up to on-lookers. No new footage was shown in the pictures, with most of them shouting out other properties simultaneously, like Godzilla and Planet of the Apes.
Death Stranding is set to be a major part of the PlayStation showcase at E3 2018, so those hoping for more information won't be disappointed when the gaming industry's biggest show of the year rolls around early next month. The Death Stranding trailer is inevitably going to be one of the can't-miss elements of the PlayStation show, and now seems like a good time to start demonstrating a few gameplay elements. The game has managed to get by on mind-blowing cinematic footage alone for a few years now, however, so there's also a chance it will be more of the same from the team at Kojima Productions.
There's also the question of whether or not we'll see any celebrity guest appearances at the game's next big outing. Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen are both major players in Death Stranding, while Guillermo Del Toro is also linked to the project. The inclusion of these big names has been a boon to the game thus far, and with E3 2018 being the biggest stage of the year to generate some more hype, it wouldn't be too optimistic to expect appearances from the rock star team Kojima has built around his new baby.
