Conan O’Brien Visits Death Stranding Creator Hideo Kojima, Reveals Surprise Role as an … Otter

by Liana Ruppert

Leave it to Conan O’Brien to be the OTTER in Death Stranding. That’s right, the Team Coco late-night host visited Death Stranding creator Hideo Kojima recently for a new comedy bit and not only is the video itself absolutely hilarious, it also revealed that O’Brien himself is in the game (because of course, he is).

Have we mentioned that this game is really weird? Because it is. It’s really, really weird.

According to Kojima, “Conan O’Brien appears as a prepper “The Wondering MC” in [Death Stranding]. You get “Sea Otter Suit” when you get connected with him. With this suit, you’ll be able to swim easily in the river, you won’t be drifted away!” And then in true Kojima fashion, there were a ton of emojis following his statement. 

Check out the full comedy video below:

As for the game itself, Death Stranding finally has its release date. The PlayStation 4 exclusive officially arrives on November 8th!
