The upcoming interview may be the chance for Kojima to talk more about his upcoming game after E3. Death Stranding?s E3 reveal was mostly jarring and bizarre and left most of the audience confused about the overall nature of the upcoming game. While Kojima has confirmed that it will be in a genre of its own, he?d have to explain some more details if he wants to make his avant-garde game to work.
The imagery of Death Stranding?s first trailer features dead animals, lines of cords, floating entities in a distance, and a naked Norman Reedus on a beach. The trailer left little clues for the players and inevitably forced them to deeply inspect the game?s promotional material for any hints. Fortunately, fans found some mathematical formulas inscribed in the stone dogtags on the character of Reedus. These formulas are mostly about quantum physics which could possibly mean time traveling and futuristic settings.
According to the official convention?s site, the San Diego Comic Con 2016 will be held from July 21 to July 24. Ticket sales will start on July 20. The interview will only have a limited seating of 100 people, so it?s better to buy as soon as possible if you?re interested in seeing Kojima in person. Since the management hasn?t put up online links, it?s possible that the tickets can only be bought on-site.
