Last week the world got to see yet another weird and wonderful Death Stranding trailer from the genius mind of Hideo Kojima.
Although most of the viewers were still seriously confused about the whales-and-babies game with the guy from The Walking Dead (jk Norman, GameByte loves you) some people in particular didn’t even know the trailer was for a game. In fact, some people actually believed that Japan was cloning babies in tanks, and no, I’m not joking…
Brazilian news portal G1 ‘exposed’ the truth behind the rumour that Japan was cloning babies, writing [translated]: “A message on the social networks circulates that ‘biomedical doctor Hideo Kojima has initiated the mass production of babies in artificial wombs to supply the low birth rate in Japan.’
“The text also says that ‘about 3,000 children genetically modified are already in the process of training to be used as labor in factories around the world.’ The message is #FAKE.”
Thanks for the clarification there, G1.
So there you have it, there’s no need to panic about artificial wombs and an army of baby warriors…at least not in real life. Hooray!
Death Stranding finally got itself a release date, and it’s coming a lot sooner than expected, launching on November 8.
The game’s description reads as follows: “Experience a journey like nothing before it, from legendary game creator Hideo Kojima. Take control of working man Sam Bridges, as he braves a deadly and mysterious world where death’s tide lurks everywhere.
“Featuring an all-star cast, including Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Lindsay Wagner, Léa Seydoux and Guillermo del Toro, Death Stranding is a unique and unforgettable game.”
The debut game from Kojima Productions marks the first time Kojima has had full reign over a project, and it’s going to be a fun ride trying to figure out what the visionary genius has in store for us.
Death Stranding will release exclusively on PlayStation 4, November 8 2019.
