Guillermo del Toro Discusses Role in Kojima's Death Stranding Game
Director Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy, Mimic, Blade II, Pacific Rim) talked about his role in Hideo Kojima's upcoming Death Stranding game during a phone interview with game website IGN on Monday. In the interview, del Toro said that he is not creatively involved in the game, but that Kojima had contacted him to ask him to be a character in the game. He noted that the motion and facial capture scanning for his character's model took seven hours.
Based on the tagline and the scenes, this is a post-apocalyptic game taking place after a cataclysmic disaster.
"Once, there was an explosion. A bang which gave birth to time and space. Once, there was an explosion. A bang which set a planet spinning in that space. Once, there was an explosion. A bang which gave rise to life as we know it... ...And then, came the next explosion."
Based on the trailer, their facing some kind of indescribable extra-terrestrial or supernatural threat. It's invisible but it's appearance is shown through those hand prints on the ground and the enormous figure towards the end. Seems to have the power to rapidly age humans among other things.
That shadowy figure that appears on top off the vehicle is definitely Mads Mikkelson's character from the second trailer. Both doing the same gestures.
Seems he's connected in some way to that invisible entity. The entity uses strands from it's body to catch it's victims while Mads Mikkelson's character had the same strands attached to his squad of undead soldiers.
As for the babies, with the dead, dreary setting of barren wastelands and dead sea life, I'd say most of life on the planet has died out and the babies the adults are protecting is to ensure the survival of humanity.
So seems to be a supernatural/sci-fi/horror thriller of some kind. Also, I hear the game will be open world.
Just a guess on the rest. This is a Kojima game after all. Wouldn't put it past him for all these trailers to collectively be one big red herring just to mindfuck everyone XD

Can't imagine what's in store for those that get captured by that entity. Can't be pleasant between one dude rapidly aging away just from being near it and the other guy preferring to gut himself with a knife rather than get caught by it.
Also, they have to hold their breath when it approaches yet those noisy sensors on their backs that go off when it's close by doesn't give them away to it?
CosmicNoirTear, i thought that was interesting that they had to not make a sound but their sensors were clicking away. perhaps this alien threat doesn't respond to technology and only organic life? theories aside though it was an interesting bit of the trailer.
I'm most interested in Mikkelson's character since his little trailer thing has been a wildly different setting. it was an odd WW2/modern surrealist trailer. how this ties into our aliens and their little dimension is beyond me.
i think the babies are supposed to be their defense or something along that line. we saw a raw (LOL) baby in our first trailer that daryl was looking for. in this one the baby was in a little tube thing (Also the baby is oddly developed for being in such a small container. ) which we then saw inside daryl.
Dream: It looks like reported coronavirus cases in Japan have stayed fairly stable since the country's state of emergency was lifted. Unless there's a major spike in cases, don't think we have to worry about production delays for this season.

Dream: Currently on the third and last volume to the True Tenchi Muyo light novels, Washu. Got about 40-50 pages left to read of it before I'd say I'm done.

Taka: Nice, that reminds me to finish watching Tenchi Geminar and GXP.

Taka: Virtual anime conventions - this year has been taking twists and turns. People are making adjustments. I think I spend over 100 dollars every time I go to Anime Expo each year (counting in total of badge cost, food, transportation, and merchandise).

Taka: I'll be saving money. Though, the pandemic has caused a lot of folks to have reduced hours, took time off, or laid off. Most folks' disposable income is a bit tight.

Dream: Done with TTM. See if I can get a review for it up sometime tonight.

Taka: Happy 4th of July to those who live in the states!

Dream: With Appare Ranman resuming in a few weeks, guess I'll cream through whatever episodes were released before its delay to see if I'll stick with the remaining ones this season.

Taka: So Tenchi Geminar has a school full of mostly girls just like Infinite Stratos and many harem shows.
Jul 8, 2020 6:50:40 GMT
Dream: Yeah. After Tenchi Muyo, Masaki Kajishima dabbled into several other harem titles, some of which not being based in the Tenchi timeline, which all have the same resolution of where the male lead "has them all." But they aren't really as popular.

Taka: I need to finish Geminar and GXP. Just cancel FUNimation which leaves me until July 23rd unless there are at least 3 shows that catch my eye from this season.
