News | Hideo Kojima Sends Cryptic Tweet After Death Stranding 2 Leak

After Norman Reedus says Death Stranding 2 is in the works, director Hideo Kojima sends out a tweet referring to Reedus

Actor Norman Reedus, who plays Death Stranding lead character Sam Porter Bridges, reported that production on Death Stranding 2 has “just begun.” There is no confirmation from director Hideo Kojima, but he is not denying anything yet. In a recent tweet, he seems to be responding to Reedus’ statements.

What Kojima exactly means by the tweet below is unclear. “Go to your private room, my friend,” it reads, followed by a thumbs up and heart eyes. The tweet is accompanied by three photos. The first photo shows Kojima with the ‘Lucille’ baseball bat from The Walking Dead; in the second photo, Norman Reedus is on his knees in front of Kojima, while the Japanese game director appears to be about to lash out with the bat. The third photo shows the two as friends again.

Back in 2020, Reedus said he was teaming up with Kojima again on a new game, and in August of that year, he reported thinking Death Stranding 2 was coming. Even before Death Stranding, Reedus would work with Kojima, while still working with publisher Konami, on a new game in the Silent Hill series, directed by Kojima and Guillermo del Toro. However, that game was scrapped by Konami.

News | Death Stranding cinematic trailer explains the game's plot

A new cinematic trailer for Death Stranding has appeared.

In the trailer the plot is clearly explained, finally: Sam Porter Bridges, played by Norman Reedus, has to explore a decaying United States to bring various secluded groups back into contact with each other.

Other actors and actresses in the game include Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux and Troy Baker. Death Stranding is the new game from Hideo Kojima, the developer of the Metal Gear series.

The game will be released exclusively on PlayStation 4 on November 8.

News | Death Stranding's BB voice will appear from controller

Hideo Kojima announces through a tweet that if you want you can hear the voice of BB through the Death Stranding BB-inspired controller.

BB is the baby that Sam carries with him while he travels. The limited edition PlayStation 4 Pro with Death Stranding theme was recently announced.
The PlayStation itself gets a black and white appearance with the familiar handprints on the top, and the game’s the name on the front.

The controller is inspired by the capsule in which Sam carries BB and so it becomes possible to hear BB’s voice through this controller, as if BB were in it.
It is unclear whether this feature is only available with this limited edition controller or whether other DualShock 4 controllers also play BB sound during the game.

Death Stranding will be released for PlayStation 4 on November 8.
