Hideo Kojima, Yoji Shinkawa and several others of the Kojima Productions team have concluded their ‘World Strand Tour’, a lengthy world tour promoting the release of Death Stranding. The first stop was Paris, France, where Kojima revealed the launch trailer at an event during Paris Games Week on October 30th. The next day Yoji Shinkawa was at Micromania for a signing session.
After that, the team was off to London, for an interview at the BAFTAs together with Nicolas Windig Refn. There was also a ‘Death Stranding Experience’ at the Stables Market in Camden, where fans waited in the rain for up to five hours for a chance to meet Hideo Kojima.
Berlin was the final destination in Europe, before Kojima and his team traveled to the United States. In New York, a gallery experience featuring The Art of Death Stranding was set up. Kojima also did a meet and greet with fans.
