Expect to see Death Stranding at The Game Awards 2017
The Game Awards 2017 is making an epic return, on the 7th of December 2017 on Thursday. This award ceremony is going to be amazing, it will feature notable video game developers, video game artists’, voice actors, game journalists, presenters, different categories such as best platformer, best fighting game and of course game of the year.
The Game Awards’ official Twitter account presenter Geoff Keighley tweeted that the legendary Metal Gear founding director Hideo Kojima will be present. “We are so thrilled to announce our next presenter for Thursday night: Hideo Kojima! The legendary game director will once again appear at #TheGameAwards.”
Kojima in fact did develop the Metal Gear gaming franchise in the past with his old team but, unfortunately was axed from the company and project altogether, read why he was removed from Konami Productions here.
Hideo Kojima rectified his ways and now he is working, with Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan to develop a new action video game titled “Death Stranding” for the PlayStation 4 directed by Guillermo Del Toro, Mads Mikkelsen and Norman Reedus.
Hideo Kojima has been providing more of a presence at The Game Awards since he was “banned” by Konami after he won Game of the Year honors for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain back in 2015. (The two were on the outs at that time, and Kojima soon departed after.) Last year, he was finally able to accept an award, and that’s when he provided the new look at Death Stranding.
This news is awesome, with the confirmation of Hideo Kojima’s newest project in collaboration with Kojima Productions staff and Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan. This could mean we get to see additional gameplay of this elusive IP “Death Stranding”, during The Game Awards 2017 check out the sources for more information.
Death Stranding is an all new action IP developed by Konami Productions and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment, starring actor: Mads Mikkelsen and Norman Reedus the leading characters. This upcoming game will also be directed by Guillermo del Toro.
