Death Stranding’s Hideo Kojima Goes ‘Mad’ While Gushing About Mads Mikkelsen’s Role In-Game

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: 

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! You can learn even more about the game, including the awesome new collector’s edition, with our previous coverage here! You can also check out the official synopsis below:
