Well folks, Sony is once again pulling absolutely no punches for the E3 Press Conference. Last year’s show was a big one for Sony, and E3 2016 might be even bigger – we’ve already seen a ton of great stuff, and now the company has given us a first look at Hideo Kojima’s next project, Death Stranding.
The artsy debut trailer starts with the camera panning along a beach, littered with bones, dead crabs and handprints. Eventually we come upon the naked body of a man (who looks a lot like Solid Snake from the back) lying beside a tiny baby, squalling in the sand. The man rises and picks up the baby, and holy crap, it turns out it’s The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus. After a second the baby disintegrates into black sludge, and tiny child-sized handprints appear on Reedus’ body and in the sand. If it wasn’t obvious already, things are not quite what they seem. The trailer ends with a nice long shot of digitized Normal Reedus ass. Kojima knows what the audience wants.
