Death Stranding Impresses Guerrilla Games as Hideo Kojima Shows “Incredible Things”

Today Hideo Kojima and his team visited Guerrilla Games, providing the creators of Horizon: Zero Dawn with a look at his new game Death Stranding.

Apparently, whatever Kojima-san demonstrated was quite impressive, and caused Guerrilla Games Managing Director Hermen Hulst to be quite impressed, as he shared on Twitter.

If you’re unfamiliar with the uplifting story behind the relationship between Kojima Productions and Guerrilla Games, when Kojima-san left Konami and decided to go the independent route, he toured several studios accompanied by PS4 Lead Architect Mark Cerny.

During that trip, the veteran creator of Metal Gear Solid was impressed by Guerrilla Games’ proprietary engine Decima. The Dutch developer decided to provide the Japanese video game maestro with the engine at no cost so that he could use it in his own game, forging an international collaboration that continues to this day.

Due to this, both Guerrilla Games and Kojima Productions have been working side-by-side on improving and polishing the engine, and the results we have seen so far are certainly impressive.

Kojima-san himself and his assistant Ayako Terahima posted pictures of the meeting, even if, unfortunately, none of them features what the good folks at Guerrilla actually saw.
