Death Stranding hype Madridban [VIDEO]

Death Stranding – Sony, PlayStation, and millions of dollars of marketing – there is no exception here either…

For most of its biggest games, Sony is using a truckload of money to promote them around the location of the E3, on the Internet, or in some other kind of advertising so that people who might not even be interested in video games might also run into what the company is promoting. Sony has done something similar to Kojima Productions‘ game as well, whose release is just mere days away. This time, Sony and Kojima Productions did not choose some Japanese location to hype the game but something unusual, which might not even be related to the game altogether…

The location they chose is Madrid, the capital of Spain. The Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, the arena of Real Madrid, named after one of their legendary football players (who then was president as well). Not far away from it, there’s a metro stop, as well as a replica of a BB Pod, which you can see in the embedded Twitter video below…

In the future, Kojima Productions will also start making films. If a person can do one thing well, then they should be able to do anything well. I think within the next few years, gaming will move on to streaming. Movies, dramas, and games will all be streamed, and you’ll enjoy them on your iPad or iPhone or a screen anytime, anywhere. When that happens, games, films, and dramas will have to compete in the same space. I’m very interested in the new format of game that will appear on there, and that’s what I want to take on,” Kojima said in a recent BBC documentary. Perhaps we might see a significant change in Death Stranding already towards films.

You might experience it from Friday on PlayStation 4 – in case you want to play the game on PC, you have to wait until the early summer days of 2020, and even then, we don’t know if Death Stranding goes with Steam or the Epic Games Store…
