Death Stranding Gets a New Poster at Tokyo Game Show Featuring Incredible Character Art
The core cast of Death Stranding gets a beautiful treatment in this stunning new poster made by artist Pablo Uchida.
With just under two months left until its release, anticipation for the upcoming and long-awaited Death Stranding couldn’t be any higher. For those looking forward to Hideo Kojima’s next project, this intriguing (and beautiful) piece of new artwork will at least help hold over fans until the game’s release in November.
During Tokyo Game Show 2019, Hideo Kojima debuted a brand new piece of artwork for the upcoming Death Stranding, which features a movie poster-style illustration of the game’s cast of characters. In the center of course we have the game’s main character, Sam Bridges (played by The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus), while all around Bridges we also get glimpses of the rest of the game’s core cast, including the characters played by Lea Seydoux, Margaret Qualley, Guillermo del Toro, Troy Baker, and more.
The poster itself was drawn by artist Pablo Uchida, with the title design being made by Kyle Cooper. In reference to the artwork, Kojima expressed that he and the artists “have a strong strand by respecting each other” and how it shows the experience of Death Stranding.
TGSが始まりました。皆さん、ステージでお待ちしております。このDEATH STRANDINGの新しいビジュアルは、僕がその才能に嫉妬するくらいの天才“パブロ内田”さんに描いていただきました。タイトルデザインのカイルさんも、内田さんも、お互いにリスペクトし合う、強い“ストランド”で繋がっています👍🌈🦀 pic.twitter.com/lZ62YIv0Di

Given that Tokyo Game Show is so close to the game’s release window, it made sense for Kojima and his development to share a little bit more on the game to let us ponder the game’s mysteries even more, which will also include a lengthy gameplay demo that will be shown at Tokyo Game Show this week.
Death Stranding will release for PS4 on November 8, 2019, and you can pre-order the game now over on Amazon. In the meantime until its release, you can check out the brand new poster below:
