We don’t know a lot about Death Stranding yet, but we know a thing or two about the masterful mind of Hideo Kojima, and when he told fans to go back and look for clues in the trailers, that’s exactly what the internet did. A user on reddit noticed that if you play both trailers at the same time, side-by-side, something very unusual happens.
Rather than giving us any clear information about the upcoming title from Kojima Productions, this one moment in particular just opens up a Pandora’s box of possibilities, adding many more questions than it ever attempts to answer.
Before diving in any deeper, let’s quickly recap a few things we do know about this title:
- It is going to take place in an open-world.
- It stars Guillermo del Toro, Norman Reedus, and Mads Mikkelsen (who you may recognize from the Hannial tv series), who are in the game via motion capture.
- Despite re-uniting del Toro and Kojima, this has nothing to do with the cancelled Silent Hills.
With an anticipated release date on PS4 in 2019, and a PC version coming sometime after that, we’re still a ways out from Death Stranding and answering all of the questions, but for now we’ll have to take whatever scraps of information we can get and discuss the moment that connects both the trailers together.
