As spotted by constablegrimes, if you go ahead and play both trailers side-by side (which is possible through YouTube Doubler) you'll quickly note that the baby originally held by Crying Norman Reedus transports itself into the hands of Guillermo del Toro in the other trailer, at the exact same moment.



What the heck is happening?

'F*ck Konami' Guillermo Del Toro Tweets Following Kojima's 'Death Stranding' Reveal

Last night at the Video Game Awards Hideo Kojima unveiled the first full length trailer for his in the works game 'Death Stranding'.
Kojima and the game itself have been in the spotlight due to the controversy surrounding split between Konami and the adored game director after his mistreatment during the development of 'Metal Gear Solid 5'.
Well, now Kojima collaborator and famed director Guillermo Del Toro is weighing in, taking his hard and simple stance to twitter this morning.

The prop, named "Lu#2," was used in the announcement trailer for Kojima Production's debut PlayStation 4 and PC game, "Death Stranding."

Mere hours after the widely well-received trailer reveal from Hideo Kojima for his new game Death Stranding, Norman Reedus took to Instagram to lay down an extra dash of hurt directly intended for Konami. 

Konami and Kojima ended their professional working relationship with one another just after Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain came out last year. Their relationship got so bad that Kojima ended up being prevented entrance from The Game Awards last year, which still has some people pretty dang riled up. Reedus no doubt managed to get a strong final word in on the matter...

Not really sure what we just watched, but at a certain point, does it really matter? Granted, if you asked me whether I expected the trailer to open on a shot of Norman Reedus waking up naked, encircled by dead fish, I'd have said 'oh f**k no.' But hey, here we are. Kojima definitely delivered on the shock value.

Now it's a matter of figuring out exactly where the direction of this game is headed...at least the reactions that are rolling in in waves right now are all highly entertaining.

Hideo Kojima's been nothing if not committed to teasing us all with slow reveals of Kojima Production's mascot, Ludens. See below for the previous teased full-body shot of Ludens:

No doubt, the Fox Engine that was behind powering Metal Gear Solid V, was an impressive feat, albeit a long time coming...

However, for Kojima's upcoming PS4 game he won't be revisiting the game engine drawing board. 

“I honestly think it’s better to make your own engine and tools,” Kojima was quoted saying at the Nordic Game 2016 festival (via IGN and NeoGAF). “However, since I want people to play this first title as soon as possible, we’re going to use a third-party engine, tune it for our needs, and create with that.”
