The famed game designer Hideo Kojima has had some rough times in the recent past, but now this is far behind him as “Kojima Productions” has been established and is soon to release its first big product.

There are a lot of things that one can say about game designer Hideo Kojima, but no one can deny that he sure keeps in touch with his audience. Game Rant shares two short tweets, in which the famed gaming icon shares his love towards the fans that have stayed with him through the time of transition.

First one says that for him 2016 was a year of rebuilding himself from scratch, where the only thing he had not had to regain was the help and support of his fans, for which he is thankful.
Second one says that the only reason he managed to pull this off was the hope which never waned.

Cinema Blend covers the development of “Kojima Productions”. After the separation between Kojima and his publisher Konami, he established a new brand, which for the moment works on a completely new IP named “Death Stranding”. Kojima managed to attract big names in this project, among which are Norman Reedus, known for his role in “The Walking Dead”, director Guillermo del Toro and actor Mads Mikkelsen. For now, there have only been two cryptic trailers released regarding Kojima’s new IP, but they both are quite affecting.

For whose interest in the game is ever growing, Kotaku has some interesting reads. According to them, when playing both the “Death Stranding” trailers simultaneously, one sees certain correlations, which may seem accidental, but may be leads left by Kojima and his partners in this project. One of the correlations is the baby disappearing from Norman Reedus’ hands, just to appear in Guillermo del Toro’s container at the same time. There are other connections left there too, but they are left to gamers to find by themselves. Based on clues left by Hideo Kojima, the release of “Death Stranding” is expected 2018-2019.
