Hideo Kojima Presents Brain Structure is an ongoing podcast from Kojima that is exclusively on Spotify. It started from late September 2022 and is a “deep-dive” into Kojima’s brain. They are in both Japanese and English, and he plays music on the podcast as well. As of February 2, 2023, he uploaded his episode with Elle Fanning. Though we do not yet know her role, we do know that Fanning will appear as a character in Death Stranding 2.
The tweet also includes the numbers for the episodes with Shioli Kutsuna, N.W. Refn, and Norman Reedus. Episode 23 will be the next one, but we do not yet know who he will invite. All we know is that it will be someone who worked on or is working on the game. Shioli Kutsuna, like Fanning, will play a Death Stranding 2 character. Meanwhile, Refn and Reedus were in the first game.
Hideo Kojima Presents Brain Structure is available on Spotify. Episode 23 will air on February 9, 2023. Death Stranding 2 is in development.
