He then followed up with another tweet reporting Protagonist Norman Reedus’ impressions of Death Stranding, which he defined “Mind-blowing, Epic, The Future, and Incredible.”

Apparently, Reedus is currently involved in a recording session for the Death Stranding in New York, supervised by Hideo Kojima himself.

Incidentally, Aki Saito is the latest among former Konami employees to join Kojima Productions. If you followed the development of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, you probably saw him appear as a regular in Hideo Kijima’s videocasts from the time.
Death Stranding has been announced only for PS4. At the moment it doesn’t have a release date or even a release window.
