Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions have revealed that Elle Fanning (Maleficent, The Great, Daddy Day Care) will star within the studio’s subsequent game, which stays unannounced.
This information comes after weeks of Kojima teasing a face with the phrases, “Who Am I?” in daring white letters. The face was obscured as a consequence of some neat shadow tips, however proper from the bounce, followers tried figuring out whose face it is perhaps, and it did not take lengthy for Fanning to develop into the frontrunner. Continual teasing led us to yesterday, when Kojima lastly launched the pictures under, confirming Fanning because the face in query.
As you’ll be able to see, Kojima has now moved away from “Who Am I?” to “Where Am I?” alongside a tease that we’ll seemingly study extra at one of many two remaining PAX conventions in 2022: Pax Aus (October 7 via October 9) or PAX Unplugged (December 2 via December 4). We’ll most likely study the setting of this game starring Fanning, contemplating the query is “Where Am I?” I’d wager that it is someplace in North America, the setting of Death Stranding, as a result of there is a good probability this unannounced game is Death Stranding 2, one thing actor Norman Reedus (who performs Sam Bridges in Death Stranding) seemingly confirmed earlier this yr.
There’s additionally area in Kojima’s tease for a 3rd query: “??? -> ??? -> ???” I’m guessing this query can be “When Am I?” and the reveal of its reply can be at The Game Awards 2023, hosted and created by Kojima buddy Geoff Keighley, taking place on December 8. As for the reply to “When Am I?” I feel it might be a meta query, referring to when the game will launch or it might be associated to the timeline of the story of Death Stranding 2. When within the Death Stranding universe does this sequel happen? Right after the top of Death Stranding or someday later? I’d wager it takes place a few years later, with Fanning enjoying a grown-up model of Lou, the child from Death Stranding.
For now, all now we have are these cryptic teases and our pondering caps however we’ll hopefully study extra at an upcoming PAX occasion or The Game Awards 2023. In the meantime, learn Game Informer’s Death Stranding assessment.
