As seen in the reveal trailer back on E3, Death Standing will star Norman Reedus (Walking Dead, Boondock Saints). However, at Sony’s Playstation Experience 2016 we found out that Guillermo Del Toro (Hellboy) and Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale, The Hunt) will also lend their likeness as well as their voice to the Hideo Kojima project.
We learned nothing new from the latest trailer, other than the fact that Death Stranding will feature a naked Norman Reedus running around a bunch of dead sea creatures carrying babies that turn diesel fuel, we still don’t have any kind of plot. My guess is the newest trailer is the beginning of the game, maybe even the closing sequence of the prolog. I have read rumors online that Kojima’s intent with Death Stranding was to make a game that relates to the current state of the United States. I don’t see that happening based on the look and feel of the two trailers we’ve seen unless it’s Kojima’s sick look at what the population would be if things don’t change? Kojima is twisted at times but none of that seems to fit what we’ve seen in the trailers. So I’m basically just going to expect the unexpected.
