If there is a creative in the video game industry whose ads we can always dismiss as cryptic, it is, without a doubt, Hideo Kojima. The leader of Kojima Productions and creator of Metal Gear Solid has a predilection for making us speculateand his new announcement has already put his fans to work.
Two days ago, the eccentric Japanese creative left a mysterious tweet on his official twitter account. With the text “The answer to “Who” at the Tokyo Game Show will be in the next “Where””, accompanied by a silhouette. Of course, fans began to speculate about it, without great results. Now it looks like we have new data and more things to ponder about it.

Yesterday, Geoff Keighley, creator of the well-known Game Awards and the Summer Game Fest, as well as a friend of Hideo Kojima and owner of a cameo in Death Stranding, wanted to join in the promotion of this new project. Revealing that Elle Fanningprotagonist of the movie The Neon Demon will be part of this new video game.
In addition to this, those who go to the Australian video game fair PAX Aus can find a QR code in the venue that houses it. With this, they are transported to a Kojima Productions website with the promotional poster for Elle Fanning. Now with this in mind, speculation has assailed to the community.
On the one hand, the two silhouettes are different, so we assume that the woman in the first teaser is not Fanning, making people wonder who we are dealing with. In addition, the logo that is above that of Kojima Productions has given much to talk about. Looking like it is an umbrella along with a drawbridge, this may indicate that the mystery project is Death Stranding 2. The umbrella could symbolize the character of Fragile, while the bridge would allude to Bridges, the surname of the game’s protagonist.
For now, as is the tradition with Kojima video games, we have no choice but to speculate and wait. With a little luck, the game awards of this year, which already have a date, will make us clear more about this new project from one of the most famous developers in the industry.
