He immediately discarded the sequel when he had to. And he started over. Here’s the trailer for his debut at The Game Awards tonight. His original Death Stranding, essentially a game where you are a postman with a very good waterproof jacket and a baby in a bottle, was released in 2019 and was so great that I reviewed it twice. Harper said for the first time. The second time was this great video by Tim Rogers for his review.
After Hideo Kojima teased it for weeks, Hideo Kojima’s next project was announced tonight, which comes as a bit of a surprise: a direct sequel to Death Stranding. Given how the first game did, I’m not sure many people were expecting a sequel, so I say surprise…and after doing something new with Death Stranding, Because I think people thought he would do something new again? I don’t think so! Interestingly, after the onstage reveal, Kojima, who had begun writing the story for Death Stranding 2 before the pandemic hit, had to go through something similar to what was predicted for the first game.
