Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions revealed that Elle Fanning (Maleficent, The Great, Daddy Day Care) will star in the studio’s next game, which has yet to be announced.
The news comes after weeks of Kojima teasing a face with the words, “Who am I?” in bold white letters. The face was obscured due to some neat shading tricks, but right from the jump, fans tried to determine whose face it could be, and it didn’t take long for Fanning to take the lead. head. The constant teasing has led us to yesterday, when Kojima finally released the images below, confirming Fanning as the face in question.
As you can see, Kojima has now left “Who am I?” to “Where am I?” along with a tease that we’ll likely learn more about one of the two remaining PAX conventions in 2022: Pax Aus (October 7 to October 9) or PAX Unplugged (from October 2nd) 12 to 4 December). We will probably explore the context of this game starring Fanning, considering the question of “Where am I?” I bet it’s somewhere in North America, the setting of Death Stranding, because there’s a good chance this unannounced game is Death Stranding 2, something starring Norman Reedus (who plays Sam). Bridges in Death Stranding) seems to have been confirmed this early year.
There’s also a gap in Kojima’s tease for the third question: “??? -> ??? -> ???” I guess this question would be “When am I?” and the disclosure of its answer will be at Game Awards 2023, hosted and created by Geoff Keighley, a close friend of Kojima, takes place on December 8. For the answer to “When am I?” I think it could be a meta question, referring to when the game will release or it could be related to the timeline of the Death Stranding 2 story. When in the Death Stranding universe, this sequel will take place? Right after the end of Death Stranding or some time after? I bet it would take place years later, with Fanning playing an adult version of Lou, the baby from Death Stranding.
For now, all we have are cryptic teasers and our thoughts but hopefully we’ll learn more at the upcoming PAX event or The Game Awards 2023. In the meantime. wait, read Game informant Review of Death Stranding.
