Hideo Kojima’s Name Will Sell Death Stranding, Troy Baker Believes

According to actor Troy Baker, Hideo Kojima’s name will sell Death Stranding. Troy Baker, the popular voice actor talked about the upcoming mysterious game recently at Manchester Comic-Con with Push Square.

Baker who plays the role of Higgs in the upcoming PS4 exclusive game said that the creator of Metal Gear series Hideo Kojima is an industry icon. In addition to this, the Higgs star believes that Kojima’s name will drive sales to Death Stranding instead of the cast which includes Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Lea Seydoux, Lindsay Wagner, Guillermo del Toro, and many more.

This will be a game that names sell, and it won’t be Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen, and it sure as sh*t won’t be Troy Baker. The name that’s going to sell this game is going to be Kojima, Baker said.

There’s no doubt that Kojima is the reason why everyone is so hyped about the upcoming game. Everyone is expecting Death Stranding to be another masterpiece by the creator of Metal Gear series.

Furthermore, Baker also said during the interview that Kojima is trying to make a statement with Death Stranding instead of selling units. Moreover, Baker said that the Death Stranding will try to “move the medium forward.”

It’ll definitely be a statement. If you know anything about Kojima, he doesn’t make ‘games’. He’s an amazing world builder. He’s trying to move the medium forward, not just trying to move copies, said Baker.

That’s pretty much all that Baker said about the famous video game director.  There’s no denying that Kojima sets himself apart from everyone else in the gaming industry. All that’s left for us now is to play the game. To do that, we will have to wait a few months more.

Everyone who has played the game says that it’s another masterpiece by Kojima. Jade Raymond, head of Google Stadia Games recently got the chance to try out the upcoming game. As expected, Raymond called the next game by Kojima Productions a masterpiece.

As for the question when does Death Stranding release? It releases on November 8, 2019, exclusively for Sony’s PlayStation 4. There’s still a lot that we need to learn about Death Stranding story. We are expecting to learn more about the game before its release date.

Kojima Productions recently released a new trailer of the game to tell us more about Heartman (Nicolas Winding Refn) character in the game. You can check out the trailer below.

Hopefully, we will see more character trailers like above before the game’s release. Until then, make sure to check out our Death Stranding pre-order guide to find out which edition of the game you should purchase.
