Hideo Kojima Suggests Gamers Not to Watch Upcoming Death Stranding Gameplay
You can expect a huge chunk of Death Stranding gameplay soon, but should you watch it?
Tokyo Game Show has begun and Hideo Kojima has been more than frank about Death Stranding’s appearance at the event. Earlier this week, Kojima announced that he was preparing things for TGS. Additionally, the director shared on Twitter that there is going to be forty-nine minutes of gameplay shown off. Since then, however, Kojima said that with the game being his creation, he would prefer that players experience it blind.
DS is a totally new game and I’ve revealed many info(hint) so as a game creator I’d like you to play without any info and enjoy the surprise by discovering yourself. But since many people say they don’t know what’s the game is about, I decided to introduce the basic gameplay. pic.twitter.com/txoJeHS9QG

To me, it makes sense why Kojima feels this way however I’m still going to tune in and get a better idea as to what Death Stranding actually is. On top of that, he recently said in an interview with Financial Times (via VG247), “Death Stranding… even now, I don’t understand the game” which to me is worrisome. I know a lot of people love Kojima for doing weird things, but I want to know what I’m getting into.
Death Stranding just received a brand new trailer featuring the main character Sam getting debriefed in the White House. For those that are on the fence about checking out the gameplay video, take a look at the briefing tailer to help you decide. Regardless, Death Stranding is arguably the most anticipated title for the rest of this year. This is Kojima’s first new game after his split with Konami so most fans really don’t know what to expect, but I’m looking forward to seeing what is in store.
