We may see Death Stranding ‘dog tags’ merchandise

Kojima has shared some images of a titanium replica representing the dog tag like item Norman Reedus’ character is wearing in the first Death Stranding trailer. The plates are inscribed with the Schwarzschild radius equation from the field of astrophysics. The Schwarzschild radius equation (R g = 2GM/c ) is related to black holes, a phenomenon that is theorized to play a role in the game.

“The “thing” that Norman is wearing in DEATH STRANDING has been created based from CGI model data, material is titanium. This is still sample, checking to see whether to merchandise.” – Hideo Kojima

It seems like Kojima is also considering selling this replica as a piece of merchandise, though according to the game designer, this is still a sample. Below are some images of Norman Reedus’ character wearing these items around his neck, along with other equations.

    I would get a pen drive shaped like that

    I want DS-themed toilet paper! And brush! And TV! And iPhone! And!..
    Hell, Konami need to learn from Kojima how to milk one teaser to death.

    • Its not just a teaser, it’s a whole new IP.

      • Eugene Voldo

        Well, for now Kojima only milked things that we’ve seen or heard in teaser 😀

        • Not sure what the problem is here. Some people like to have this kind of merchandise, and for the studio it’s another source of income. Those who aren’t interested in it can simply ignore it.

            That’s cool and all. But still milking is milking.

            Man, how come you were not complaining when he was showing potential MGS collector packages items on Koji-Sta ?
            Think of it the same way as bionic arm or Shagohod replicas !?
            What’s wrong with that ? 😀 He is just sharing / examining what could perhaps be in special editions…

          • Eugene Voldo

            That’s what I’m tallking about! Kojima is a milking machine in human form. We should shame him for that, not cheer him up!

            Ha cmon, you can disagree with the process but then, any toy manufacturer on earth would be milking machines as well. Why does his game designer condition should limit him to selling exclusively software ? He is free to have a restaurant and sell pizzas if he want, would you call this milking milk-shakes ? ;D

            Beers somehow belong to the shakes family (or some cousin), don’t they ?

            They are both tasty so they must be related….wait that sounded wrong.

            After just shaking a beer hard, I now suddenly realize they are perhaps not related … Maybe they belong to the milf-shake family instead…
