‘Death Stranding’ – Mads Mikkelsen and More in New Trailer

Henry Gilbert

Back when he quit Konami and left behind Metal Gear, many wondered what was next for Hideo Kojima. At E3 2016, we got our first look at Kojima’s next game. We hadn’t seen much of Death Stranding since that Normus Reedus starring trailer. At this year’s Game Awards, Kojima showed much more. The new Death Stranding trailer not only teases the involvement of Guillermo del Toro, but also shows another star featured in the game: Mads Mikkelsen.

Like the first trailer, this Death Stranding trailer is low on dialogue and high on mystery. We begin with seeing del Toro running through a wasteland full of black water. He looks to be carrying a fetus with him as an army walks by.

Then, deep in the sewers, we see a group of soldiers. Their leader reveals himself to be actor Mads Mikkelsen. The actor is most famous for his lead role in Hannibal, who also recently portrayed the villain in Marvel’s Doctor Strange.

What more could this mean for the game? Will Kojima show off more of Death Stranding at PlayStation Experience in a few days? Fandom will be keeping its eyes peeled for more information.
