Hideo Kojima turned quite some heads with the reveal of his upcoming video game, Death Stranding. The game will star Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen who are known tv and movie stars. Norman Reedus is known for having played Daryl Dixon on The Walking Dead TV series and according to Hideo Kojima, his character will be very different from his tv series character.

Speaking with Sugoi-Japan, Hideo Kojima said that Death Stranding will show a different side of Norman Reedus as you can see in the E3 trailer that he was in tears and hugging a baby.

With the very first trailer, I wanted to show a different side of Norman than we’re used to seeing, by having him in tears and hugging an infant. Most people only know him as Daryl from ‘The Walking Dead’. However, this time, Norman… is butt naked! [laughs]. Don’t you think Mads Mikkelsen look cool in the second trailer [slyly smiling]? I’m absolutely in love with Mads, to the point where I watch one of his films every day.

Death Stranding will be using a modified version of DECIMA game engine which is developed by Guerrilla Games. According to Kojima himself, DECIMA is a fantastic game engine and the game will be photorealistic when it releases.

Decima is a fantastic render engine, but there’s no point if we create the same world as Guerrilla Games. Horizon: Zero Dawn has a fantastic artistic vision, but we are more aiming for a photorealistic style.

Death Stranding is an upcoming action video game in development at Kojima Productions and is expected to launch in 2018 exclusively for PlayStation 4.
