Hideo Kojima has found another famous face for his next game. Following a series of teases, a hint dropped at the ongoing PAX Australia convention revealed a new website. On it is a teaser photo trumpeting the involvement of actor Elle Fanning in Kojima Productions’ next project. [Thanks, IGN!]

Check it out below.

The teaser shows Elle Fanning’s face, with the text “Who Am I?” emblazoned over it. Along the side of the poster is the text “A Hideo Kojima Game x Elle Fanning”, and at the bottom is a mysterious logo showing what looks to be a pyramid-like structure above the Kojima Productions logo.

Beyond that, there’s little info about what the game might be or the extent of Elle Fanning’s involvement. The teases began in earnest around the time of Tokyo Game Show 2022, when Game Awards host Geoff Keighley, a known acquaintance of Kojima’s, tweeted a mysterious poster. Fans matched the silhouette to Elle Fanning’s face. On October 5th, Kojima then tweeted the poster again, saying that “The Answer to “WHO” at TGS will be in the next “WHERE”. By October 7th, attendees at PAX Australia found a standing poster with a QR code and the text “Where Am I?” on it. Scanning the QR code led to the site that confirmed the Kojima x Elle Fanning pair. Modder Lance McDonald showed off a picture of the code.

Shortly after the poster appeared at PAX Australia, Kojima teased more teases in another cryptic tweet, suggesting that there’s yet more to the PAX Australia tease (“WHERE”), with at least one more set of hints planned.

The Kojima Productions x Elle Fanning game is in development, as is a sequel to Death Stranding, starring Norman Reedus.
