The trailer of "Death Stranding" may seem to lead to a dark game. However, Hideo Kojima confirmed that the game is not a horror game choosing humor and uniqueness over darkness.

It can be remembered that the game is an upcoming open world action video game. It is still in its early stage of development. This is the first game by Hideo Kojima following his disbandment last 2015 and termination of contract from Konami.

There's a little information about the game, but not long after when in a recent interview by Glixel, Hideo Kojima has given another hint about the game. Kojima had said that he doesn't have a dark mindset and that "Death Stranding" won't be a horror game.

He wanted to make something unique, something that hasn't been seen before and something more artistically inclined. He even said that he is not pursuing a dark aspect towards the game. The game won't be exactly as dark in nature. However, he also emphasized that it will have a little bit of humor but not enough to ruin its setting of which will be at an appropriate level, PlayStation Lifestyle added.

Hideo Kojima saying, "I believe you should make something that matches the times, because the world changes every day," wanted the game to be accorded as to the changes in time as people also do change all the time. With Guerilla's engine, together they will have a collaborative effort to build the game twice at its speed.

Until then "Death Stranding's" release date has yet to be confirmed but is expected to be released in 2019. It will also feature Norman Reedus and Mad Mikkelsen.
