The latest Death Stranding trailer is bizarre and makes zero sense. It’s pure Kojima madness, unbound by the restraints of Konami. Have you been watching it over and over again hoping to find a clue or perhaps some meaning? Feeling frustrated? It’s okay, really. Even the guy in the trailer has no idea what’s happening.
In an interview with Birth.Movies.Death, Mikkelsen, who’s making the rounds promoting a little movie called Star Wars: Rogue One, the topic of Death Stranding came up.
I’m sure you can’t talk much about the plot, but–
No, but (laughs), it’s very intricate. I mean, you know (Kojima). He’s a very brilliant man. I mean … the stuff he told me? I only understood some of it.
There was a lot of (mimes being baffled) “What?” I have to see it before I understand. Because with Death Stranding, he’s creating something completely new.
Just sit back and relax. Everything is going to be alright. Kojima’s got this.
