The wait for Death Stranding becomes more and more spasmodic, while finally, the game begins to take away some of the cryptic veils that had covered it in the three years that have elapsed since the announcement to today’s date.
The highly anticipated debut of Kojima Productions has in fact been a great protagonist at the Tokyo Game Show 2019, where the gameplay of Death Stranding has been shown in detail, which you can learn more about on our website.
And it was Hideo Kojima who returned to talk about Death Stranding in a long interview, in which he also proposed an interesting parallel with Donald Trump’s America and beyond. In fact, in the game, the protagonist has the task of uniting the so-called United Cities of America through a chiral network. But those who decide not to connect are as if they were out of the world, with their pros and cons.
“When you connect you can use the UCA services, but at the same time they receive your information 24 hours a day. It’s like in 1984, some people might not feel good and say” I don’t want to connect to the UCAs, because we would repeat the same things already done in the past “. Like Trump, the European Union, these things here. It’s a metaphor.”
Kojima finally spoke of the setting of Death Stranding: “It speaks of America, but I created the map deliberately different from America. Perhaps Japan also seems to be from some angle. I don’t want people to think” America “, but more to where they are, because it depends on who is looking at it “.
What do you think of Kojima’s words?
