Hideo Kojima has set two records, but they aren’t connected to Death Stranding. Rather, it has to do with his online presence. He has been awarded the Guinness World Records for the size of his following on both Instagram and Twitter.
Kojima was shown holding both of the certificates on the Kojima Productions Twitter account. On both Instagram and Twitter, he is the most followed game director. The Instagram post notes the number of followers on each days, specifying his English Twitter account had 2,813,385 followers on November 8, 2019 and his Instagram account had 888,539 followers. As of November 10, 2019, his Instagram had over 919,000 followers and his Twitter over 2,823,000 followers.
