It’s no secret that Hideo Kojima and actor Mads Mikkelsen have a very close friendship both professionally and personally and it seems like the Death Stranding creator couldn’t help but to go adorably ‘mad’ when raving about his friend’s role in his upcoming breakout IP for Kojima Productions.
The beloved game creator took to Twitter to offer a little more reassurance for hardcore Mads fans:
Dear Mads fans: there are many scenes in DS which I think you’ll love. In this trailer there’s Mads covered in blood, Mads tied, smoking Mads, variations with Mads’ eyes, Mads with glasses… Singing Mads & Mads in battledress were new challenges. pic.twitter.com/C3eEibpiTx

Get yourself someone who looks at you the way Kojima-san looks at Mads, and you’ll never be sad again. That, and you’ll apparently never have to deal with silence ever either, because Kojima-san mentioned the actor also does some singing in the game, which will be a first for Mikkelsen throughout his acting career.
As for the game itself, Death Stranding finally has its release date. The PlayStation 4 exclusive officially arrives on November 8th!
