Back in January, the popular hardware manufacture Lenovo published a video starring Hideo Kojima to publicize Kojima Productions’ choice to use the company’s ThinkStation workstations for its development needs.

Recently, we finally got a subtitled version, finally giving everyone a chance at understanding Kojima-san’s words.

In the video, Kojima-san talks about his work, Kojima Productions’ philosophy and Death Stranding, of course also giving a quick overview on why the studio went with ThinkStation.

You can check it out below (you’ll have to click on it due to Vimeo’s settings).

Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions are currently working on Death Stranding for PS4, in collaboration with Sony Interactive Entertainment. We don’t know all that much about the game yet, as Kojima-san only provided teases and glimpses for the moment.

Recently, he provided an update on development, mentioning that the game is currently running on PS4, and the studio is working on mechanics and story.

We do know that Death Stranding will be an open world action game, and that will have an optional online element. It’s built on Guerrilla Games’ Decima Engine thanks to a technology partnership between the two studios. The game also comes with a star-level cast, with stars of the caliber of Mads Mikkelsen and Norman Reedus.

If you want to see more, you can enjoy the first teaser trailer, and the second, on top of another version of that with different music.

For the moment, we’re still waiting for a release date, or even a more generic window, but E3 is coming, and we might be hearing something more then. Fingers crossed.
