Norman Reedus Shares Thoughts on Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding, ‘Crazy Complicated’

New comments from Death Stranding star Norman Reedus on the game have began making rounds on the web, and famed The Walking Dead actor focuses in on how ‘crazy complicated’ the game is in a positive manner.

Speaking to Metro’s GameCentral in March of last year (the contents of the interview have been under embargo until now), the zombie slaying star touches on multiple points on the game, along with this relationship with storied game developer and founder of Kojima Productions, Hideo Kojima. ‘That guy is such a genius, Hideo Kojima,’ Reedus stated. ‘I’m like, ‘Oh so they’ll be playing me?’ And he’s like, ‘No they are you. We will make them cry as you.’ I’m like, ‘What are you talking about? It’s a video game.”

When asked about what fans can expect from Death Stranding, Reedus elaborated ‘The concept is so far out into the future. Instead of eliminating everyone around you, it’s bringing everyone together. It’s a very positive video game, but scary and depressing at the same time. It’s kind of a new movie. I’ve never seen anything like what we’re doing. Guillermo Del Toro introduced me to him, who is also working on the game; he’s also a character in the game. I saw that video game director at the Video Game Music Awards, walk down the steps and they lit up underneath his feet like Michael Jackson and he goes, ‘I’m back.’ And the place is like, ‘Oh my god.’ Like grown men in tears. ‘I was like who is this god – whatever he wants to do I’ll do it. He’s a genius.’

Reedus, who leads a now star studded cast including Mads Mikkelsen, Lea Seydoux, Lindsay Wagner, Troy Baker, and the formerly mentioned Guillermo Del Toro, in the upcoming action game as main protagonist Sam Bridges also touched on if the game’s trailers were truly indicative of what the actual game will represent. ‘The trailers show you an aspect of it, but not a whole picture of what the game will be. That’s like a whole other thing. It’s complicated, it’s a crazy complicated game. I’ve been learning a lot about video games doing it.’

First revealed at Sony’s E3 2016 press conference, Death Stranding is currently described as an open world action game, with a mysterious somewhat-purgatory environment waiting for Reedus’s character everytime he dies. This will be Kojima’s first game since his split from Konami in 2015, and the first project under the now independent Kojima Productions. While a release date has yet to be revealed or confirmed, the game is slated to be released exclusively on PlayStation 4’s family of systems.
