Death Stranding is more than just a game, and actor Troy Baker believes that if director Hideo Kojima achieves what he’s set out to, it’ll be a statement. Speaking at Manchester Comic-Con, the Higgs star teased that the auteur is trying to move the industry forward with his upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive project.
“It’ll definitely be a statement,” he exclaimed, as part of a wider interview which will be published on Push Square later this week. “If you know anything about Kojima, he doesn’t make ‘games’. He’s an amazing world builder. He’s trying to move the medium forward, not just trying to move copies.”
In fact, Baker was so complimentary of the Metal Gear man that he stated it’ll be his name that sells the game – and not the star-studded cast list associated with it. “This will be a game that names sell, and it won’t be Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen, and it sure as sh*t won’t be Troy Baker,” he continued. “The name that’s going to sell this game is going to be Kojima.”
We continue to be intrigued.
