Earlier this week, Hideo Kojima's new studio Kojima Productions revealed the first glimpse of his upcoming debut game, Death Stranding, with a bizarre yet intriguing trailer during Sony's E3 2016 press conference. Starring The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus, the mysterious trailer has left gamers more confused and curious than ever.
Now, Kojima has taken to Twitter to reveal more cryptic details about his upcoming game in a series of nine tweets. The first tweet in the series reads: "Our game is still far from being released but the 'game' has already begun. What are you able to spot?"
According to the legendary developer behind the Metal Gear Solid series, the teaser showcased at Sony's press conference was completed in 2.5 months with help from PS4 architect Mark Cerny and Hollywood veteran Kyle Cooper who worked on movies such as Fast & Furious, Seven, Braveheart and Iron Man.
"With technology advancing as far as it has, diving games into genres like 'Action' or 'RPG' doesn't sound too forward thinking but, Death Stranding should be a new 'genre,'" the tweet reads.
Some of his tweets, however, do highlight a few key details that Kojima hopes to showcase in the game, including exploring different meanings of death and touching on some of the theories about the human race's first inventions - sticks and ropes.
In a previous interview with Japanese publication Famistu, Kojima claimed that his next IP will be "amazing" for "gamers who enjoy today's AAA games" such as The Division and Uncharted.
"When it is announced, you might think 'that's not that outstanding,'" he said. "But you'll understand when you see it and play it."
Death Stranding will be launched as a console exclusive for PS4 and will be released on PC as well. A release date for the upcoming game has not yet been released.
