Hideo Kojima Creates Homage to Oscar Nominated Film 1917 Using Death Stranding


It’s no secret that Hideo Kojima loves films. He talks about them and their influence on his body of work quite constantly on both his Japanese and English Twitter accounts. So it may not come as a surprise to many that he has recreated (or rather, created an homage to) one of the trailers for the Oscar Nominated film, 1917, with footage from Death Stranding.

Death Stranding, currently available for the PlayStation 4, will be making its way to PC this year. While an exact release date hasn’t been announced, Kojima Productions mentioned on Twitter that the PC release of Death Stranding is scheduled early 2020. Pre-orders for the PC version of this game are currently open on both the Epic and Steam store, but no system requirements have been listed. 20 different languages will be available, though only English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish (Spain) will be available as audio options.

In November 2019, Kojima talked in length to the BBC about his development process for Death Stranding. While this mini-documentary didn’t go into any great detail about some of the film related inspirations that carried over into Death Stranding, the cast for Kojima’s “social strand” title is packed with celebrities.
