Actor Mads Mikkelsen recent visited Kojima Productions, after all he is working on their upcoming game Death Stranding. His trip to the development studio seems to be well documented by Hideo Kojima himself.
Playing possibly the antagonist in Death Stranding, Mads Mikkelsen’s visit to Kojima Productions might have simply been just to scope the place out and not actually for any mo-cap work.
However, the creator of Kojima Productions and Death Stranding, Hideo Kojima took this as an opportunity to personally give the actor a tour of the place while sharing pictures on his Twitter account for fans to see.

One of the pictures shows them both wearing traditional Japanese garment while another has Mads signing an autograph wall filled with pictures of gaming industry people that Kojima has met over the years.
From the pictures it also seems like Mads was also shown some of the behind the scenes work that goes on in development at Kojima Productions including animation and rendering, of his face!
The resident artist and the legendary Yoji Shinkawa also drew a portrait of the actor, in the same style as he has done for Solid Snake, the most well known figure from all of Kojima’s video games.
Mads Mikkelsen also seems to have taken a stroll through the merchandise store at Kojima Productions which was filled with memorabilia from the upcoming Death Stranding. Unfortunately since Konami owns the Metal Gear IP, there was nothing from the franchise on display.
Since his departure from Konami, Hideo Kojima has slowly been building up his own development studio partnered with Sony.
There is no fixed release date for Death Stranding yet but the game will reunite Kojima with Norman Reedus who he was working with in Silent Hills before the game was cancelled. A recent trailer of the game showed Mads Mikkelsen’s character as well as the character of Guillermo del Toro, who was also working on Silent Hills.
