A veritable armada of Sony staffers has descended upon Kojima Productions, with the surreal studio nestled deep in the historical redlight district of Roppongi in downtown Tokyo. There, members of XDEV, SIE's marketing team, and other various members of Sony's corporate structure got to mug for the camera (with that epic statue of Ludens, no less) like one of Kojima's celebrity pals.
It's a long way to go for a social call, so we have to imagine there was a purpose to the trip. With the long-awaited PlayStation Showcase finally revealed (focusing on games both "big and small"), it's possible we might learn more in the coming days.
What mysteries do you think Sony staffers were initiated into in Kojima's cathedral of game design, where his word is law, and his whims are made manifest? Also, where can we get one of those sick hoodies? Get conspiratorial in the comments section below.
He was probably showing them Sam's new peeing physics.
That crowd looks like they know a lot about Star Trek. Also nice to see that someone finally dealt with that baby doll and floating PS3.
Yes, we do.
Death Stranding was a title that never interested me. It's on par with modern Playstation and what I expect from the upcoming Playstation showcase.
@Uncharted2007 It’s definitely not for everyone, but man Death Stranding was so awesome. One of the more creative and interesting games of the generation. If you fancy a different open world experience, it’s worth a go.
And yeah, I really want one of those hoodies. That one dude is completely wearing it wrong though.
Death Stranding is excellent I can’t wait for the sequel and hope it gets good and weird.
remember the Alamo!
Release date next week? Oh gosh, if DS2 released this year… what a cherry on top of the year in gaming that would be!
It was a surprise visit to see if Hideo was actually there and not partying it up in Hollywood.
Still need to play the first one! Oh my backlog...
The studio's in a redlight district? Why?
They tryna cheap out on rent?
@IamJT @somnambulance I'm expecting a 2024 release myself, but we shall see.
@KidRyan Based on his podcast, I’m expecting 2024 too, but you never know. To have this potentially compete with TotK, FF16, etc this year would make 2023 the biggest year in gaming ever though.
A red light district in Tokyo is more developed and taken care of than most cities in the remainder of the world. It's just where people go to unwind and enjoy the nightlife. Check Roppongi out on Google Maps and see for yourself.
I will definitely take one of those hoodies
@somnambulance Personally I hope the game is released in 2024, my 2023 backlog is already jampacked as is.
