Video game industry legend Hideo Kojima has been at the forefront of creating some of the most famous titles players have ever seen. However, the ideas of the games created by Hideo Kojima can sometimes be a tad vague or confusing to players. The latest example of the unique style from Kojima is his upcoming title of Death Stranding, which continues to confuse when it comes to what kind of game Death Stranding is. However, Hideo Kojima recently took to Twitter and gave these curious gamers insight on the type of genre Death Stranding belongs in.
According to a post by Kojima on August 26th, the gaming mastermind explained that Death Stranding is different from your ordinary stealth game. He also added that players could enjoy Death Stranding in a first-person perspective, but it is not a first-person shooter game.
Finally, Kojima explained in his post that Death Stranding is part of a whole new kind of video game genre called Strand Game, which is a part of the Social Strand System.
Since I get this question alot, DEATH STRANDING is different from stealth game. You can enjoy First Person View but not a First Person Shooter game. It's brand new game genre that adapted the concept of strand that we call Action Game, Strand Game (Social Strand System). pic.twitter.com/W1oWfvO7B5— HIDEO_KOJIMA (@HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN) August 27, 2019
