Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding showed up at Sony’s PlayStation media briefing prior to the Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show again, and it was just the best, dumbest, and weirdest stuff you can imagine … and then it got even dumber and better.

I don’t know what I saw, and so I honestly don’t even know how to write this story. What am I supposed to tell you? I can speculate, but I’m honestly so confused and lost that I think we should just watch the trailer together again. Then you tell me what is happening, and I’ll write that I guess.

Thank you, Hideo.
