Forums - Sony Discussion - Mads Mikkelsen: Kojima Is the Godfather of Creating New Things. Death Stranding

It’s going to be many hours. I’ve spent two hours with it, and it blew me away. It was insane to watch where this is taking us. Not only was it mindblowing visually, but also the way it was played. It’s kind of out of the box, something we’ve never ever seen before. And I guess that’s what people expect from Hideo Kojima. He is the Godfather of creating new things.

Well, he’s very gentle and very open-minded to you. First of all, he has a gigantic storyboard with every single shot in the scenes. This is his graphic novel, the image of what he wants to do. We were there in a room with green screens dressed in a suit that’s green and a helmet with a camera on – super weird! We’re doing little scenes and we don’t know exactly what the story arch is because it’s going to be in a game and people can change that. But we act out every scene. Luckily, I wasn’t the only one in a green suit, everybody else was, too, so it’s cool.

I insist on feeling where his vision is going, and I don’t mean getting clear directions like ‘you go there, sit down, say the line,’ I hate that. But trying to understand his mind and vision is crucial for me to be able to go there and offer some ideas that could fit into his universe. Hideo was very inspiring.

Mikkelsen also shared a little bit of insight on his own character in the game, Cliff. According to him, he won't just be the antagonist of Death Stranding, suggesting there's more to it than what we've seen so far in the trailers.

Yeah, but then again – no. We learn more about the characters throughout those hours or days of playing the game. I’m not sure how much I’m allowed to say, but… The more you play it, the more the characters will develop, and you will find little bits and pieces that fit the puzzle, so I would definitely not say that he is the antagonist solely.

Hideo Kojima recruited a veritable star-studded cast for Death Stranding. The upcoming game features Norman Reedus, Lindsay Wagner, Léa Seydoux, Guillermo del Toro, Nicolas Winding Refn and Mads Mikkelsen.

The Game Death Stranding is coming November 8 for PlayStation 4, with limited Console-Bundles.

I hope he's right because from what I saw it did not look like a good game.

I don't like Kojima. For me, the best game he made was Policenauts, and even that one is not in my top 5 VNs. His games have good cinematics and amazing graphics, but that's about it. Heck, the only Metal Gear game I liked enough to beat was Rising.

And, from what I saw about Death Stranding, I feel it looks more like a movie than a game. If that's right, I'll pass it too.

Kojima-san is the best, thats sure :)

In the next time, a new trailer!!

I hope it's as good as Metal Gear Solid 4, I loved that game :D

Ok? Wouldn't have taken Mads Mikkelsen as an avid gamer?

Hunting Season is done...

That's my fav Kojima game too. MGS V had great potential, as it built nicely on the core game play of MGS IV, but it screwed me over with a save bug and had to bail on it. It also had some unsavory elements ( The FOB, and microtransactions ) I never got the chance to experience firsthand due to the aforementioned bail. I did also really enjoy the Ground Zeros prequel.
