Atmosphere out the freaking wazoo.

  • Guillermo Del Toro
  • Mads Mikkelsen
  • Psychedelic happenings
  • Edge of your seat music

I knew an unleashed Kojima would be something special, but this somehow still managed to surprise and excite me.

This game is going to force babies to rip off their own umbilical cords.

I don't know if my body is ready.

That shot of the planes with the rainbow in the background really is something else. Probably my favourite moment.

Edit: Worth nothing that Kojima still has a panel at PSX. I'm not expecting another video, but hopefully we'll get some further details.

Needs more whales.

EDIT: Also, is this going to be a game or a movie at this point? Since it's Kojima, probably a 20/80 split?

Published by Sony America and the Technical Producer is Mark Cerney. So I am guessing this is a PS4 exclusive without a PC port? Bummer

Still not intrigued. Kojima, in recent years, has tried to sell his work more on being really weird and fantastical, but stuff like this doesn't speak to me. I was skipping ahead with my keyboard. His stories haven't impressed me since the PS2 era. Just show me some gameplay.

The expensive Madds Mikkelson and the Walking Dead guy may just mean more characters barely speaking and making things awkward, like Snake in MGSV.

I thought it was console exclusive to PS4 but confirmed coming to PC as well?

Say what you will about Kojima but the man has a vivid imagination and his trailers definitely stand apart from everything else.

PLEASE don't be an MGSV case where the trailers are infinitely more interesting than the actual game. This looks cool as shit.

I looked into it a bit. Apparently the only confirmation of a PC version was a QA on the Kojima Productions webpage and that was summarily taken down when the news came out. It might be coming out, but how often does a Sony published game that is being worked on by SOny executives get a PC release?

This is my kind of weird. The Phantom Pain was seriously lacking in weirdness and story; I hope Death Stranding makes up for it.

Thoughts:

1) What is with Mads always having jacked-up eyes?

2) The baby looked at me.

So Kojima is just huffing his own farts, right? Like, literally getting high on his own supply?

I say that, but I'm still intrigued by... whatever the hell this is. Fat man with a jar baby and Madds Mikkelsen with skeleton troops? Sure, sign me up. Whatever it is, it won't be boring.

Probably.

I still think Kojima is making a story but not sure what the game is going to be really..

I still feel sad that they are making and open world coop game, I would prefer a linear story focused game with these actors. Considering how fucking awful the story was in MGS 5 and how little of it there was, I am worried.

This trailer already had me way more interested before Mads Mikkelsen showed up, and now hype levels are outta this world.

Also looks a lot more interesting than MGS or Silent Hill. Being original probably has a lot to do with that.

Sooo, I wonder if Del Toro was in there as just a silly 'hey, I'm friends with this guy now' reference, or if he's actually involved with the game on any deeper level? I just really want the guy to be involved with a game after his last two heart breaks.

Kojima's already said it's going to be an action game. (of sorts) Sounds kind of Dark Soulsy in nature.

Loved the trailer. Looking forward to playing it in 3-5 years.

I basically hadn't seen Mads Mikkelsen since the lotr movies until Doctor Strange. Between his role there and in this trailer, he's as good at looking ugly and malicious with freaky eyes as he is good at looking good.

On the one hand, it tells a more understandable story than the first trailer. On the other, I found it full of incredibly predictable Kojima-symbolism (that is to say, an affiliation for war technology mixed with the biological fluid movement - especially limbs - wrapped up in a trailer that feels like a thriller film) that leaves me deflated at the idea of Kojima not actually spreading his horizons.

I don't care what you think about Kojima, but that dude can make damn good trailers.

Hopefully the game lives up to them.

Absolutely zero clue what this game will be, but kojima hasnt let me down yet. I'd prefer the less creeper old man kojima with zoom in on basically naked lady's asses for no other reason than to be ogled.

@ezekiel: maybe in the case of Mads, the guy will pull a snake and not talk much. but maybe that's fine, maybe he's the antagonist - it certainly seems that way - and they tend to be broody and quiet.

As for Del Toro and Reedus, they are both friends with Kojima as well as, for whatever reason, clearly committed to this project - At least in the case of Reedus. I mean, a guy like Del Toro doesn't star in a videogame unless he really really wants to. has he acted in anything before this, for that matter? I didn't know his face, I only realized he wasn't just some big dude when I read the comments and everyone was freakin' out.

I think after Konami put the Kibosh on Silent hills, after Reedus and Del Toro both publicly attached themselves and spoke at length about how much they cared about the project - This ain't about money for either of them. I think, if there's any talking in this damn game at all

( I could see him trying to branch away from the wordiest storytelling in game design by focusing on the visuals he's always been pretty good at )

then I think they'll be talking up a storm.

I'm so happy that Kojima has been unleashed unto the world without the MGS anchor weighing him down. Now he can be weird without any requirements, callbacks, or tie-ins.

@artisanbreads: 'Plastic arm' continues to crack me up whenever I see that image.

Kojima Productions youtube page uploaded the video themselves, far better quality and an option for 4K.

Edit: A personal theory. There is a hunt happening for babies, for one reason or another. It's why Del Toro's character seems protective of the child he's carrying in the incubator(?). It's also why one of the tendrils, which I assume is coming from Mad's character, grabs a hold of the doll and drags it in. It might not know that it's not a real baby. And of course, umbilical cord like things everywhere.

not a big metal gear/kojima guy, but to be honest pretty much everything about this intrigued and spoke to me. it may end up being nonsensical pap but i'm typically able to enjoy weirdness for weirdnesses' sake about 90% of the time. at the very least this thing has style for miles. would love to see/hear more about it.

Looks like this is going to ruin facial animation in all other games for me, as MGSV did. And MGS2 did back in the ps2 era come to think of it.

MGSV was one of the best playing games ever made so I'm on board for whatever Kojima does next.

After this trailer I'm pretty sure there's some sneaking involved in the gameplay :)

Also, what about this theory: the Mads Mikkelsen character is the player character. You and other players are hunting down babies in a fucked up world.
