The latest trailer for Death Stranding Director's Cut offers up Kojima's personal vision.


The Death Stranding Director’s Cut is scheduled to release in a couple of weeks, and in order to prepare the players for what awaits, Hideo Kojima has dropped another trailer. Kojima took special care to note that he was the one to edit this particular trailer, which you can watch below in all its 4K glory.

The trailer, set to Goliath by Woodkid, does a great job at bringing up all those emotions players first felt when they ventured into the terrifying post-apocalyptic world of Death Stranding. Players get to see some iconic characters like Higgs, Dei-Hardman, Fragile, and of course Sam Porter Bridges.

It’s just a testament to the appeal of Kojima’s products and the story and setting he was able to create in Death Stranding.

      Kojima seemed desperate for people to watch and like this trailer on Twitter the past few weeks.

      It's kinda sad.

          He just keeps talking about the trailer and not the game!
          How he edited the trailer itself, how much he's working on the trailer every day.

          I'm probably projecting but it feels like he wants the trailer to be more successful than the game itself ?
