During a panel at San Diego Comic Con, Hideo Kojima was joined by film director Nicolas Winding Refn (who plays Heartman in the game) to talk about storytelling and their inspirations. During the panel Kojima revealed the final box art for both the regular edition and the steelbook of Death Stranding.
Kojima also gave some more detailes on the character of Heartman, saying: “Heartman’s heart stops every 21 minutes. What happens is that he dies and he looks for his family on the other side for three minutes.” For this reason, Heartman collects films and music that can be consumed in under 20 minutes.
Death Stranding will be available for PlayStation 4 on November 8 of 2019. Go here for an overview of the different versions that are available.
