Players are anticipating the appearance of video gaming icon Hideo Kojima over at E3 2017 and it’s very likely that we’ll see him over at the Sony E3 conference. We all know the game that Kojima is bringing to E3 2017 but with Death Stranding being absent from the event, fans are anticipating something else. Now, the hot topic of the community is Bridges, which could very well be connected to the new IP in a deep way.
Over the past few days, fans have been speculating about what the Bridges title really is. All we know for now regarding the title is that it’s coming from acclaimed game creator, Kojima. Over at Twitter, Kojima confirms that Death Stranding and Bridges are connected in some way.
A recent tweet by Kojima reveals a smartphone case featuring both the title arts for Death Stranding and Bridges as part of the design. There are multiple possible conclusions to this: Bridges is the new name or a subtitle for Death Stranding, Bridges will serve as a prequel, or it’s one of Death Stranding’s features. Even before the new merchandise revealed by Kojima, the two titles being connected have been teased days ago.
According to Kojima in another tweet, Death Stranding won’t be present at E3 as their sole focus for now is to develop the game. Kojima will be present at the E3 though and it’s very possible that what he has in store for fans is the reveal of Bridges.
Many are speculating that Bridges will serve as a prequel to the events of Kojima’s other upcoming project. This isn’t something new to Kojima as he has done prequels and game teasers. Kojima released Metal Gear Solid V Ground Zeroes before, which was an expensive glorified demo for Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain. We also got P.T. before, which was a teaser for the cancelled Silent Hills game.
Metal Gear Solid V Ground Zeroes was a significantly smaller game as compared to The Phantom Pain, but it did give players a taste of what to expect from the full game. It was also a good prelude to the 5th mainline entry. Meanwhile, P.T. gave us an idea on how scary Silent Hills would be.
Bridges could be the Ground Zeroes or P.T. of the upcoming title and if this is the case, we might be getting a taste of Kojima’s new creation pretty soon. Kojima is going to be at the E3 Coliseum this June 14 and there’s a lot to be excited about.
