Mads Mikkelsen Calls Death Stranding “Mindblowing Visually,” Says It Blew Him Away
Mads Mikkelsen will play one of the key characters in Death Stranding and he has shared his views on how it will turn out. The game is expected to launch later in November.
Death Stranding will feature a star-studded cast including Mads Mikkelsen and Norman Reedus as two of the lead roles. Hideo Kojima and Mads have developed a good friendship while working on the game as seen with their interaction on Twitter. Speaking of the game itself, Mads Mikkelsen seems to be quite impressed with how it has turned out.
In an interview with Russian News Agency TASS, Mads Mikkelsen talked about his working relationship with Hideo Kojima and his experience with Death Stranding.
“Well, he’s very gentle and very open-minded to you. First of all, he has a gigantic story board with every single shot in the scenes. This is his graphic novel, the image of what he wants to do,” said Mads when speaking about Kojima.
“We were there in a room with green screens dressed in a suit that’s green and a helmet with a camera on – super weird! We’re doing little scenes and we don’t know exactly what the story arch is because it’s going to be in a game and people can change that. But we act out every scene. Luckily, I wasn’t the only one in a green suit, everybody else was, too, so it’s cool.”
He has also spent two hours with the game and considers his experience with it “mindblowing visually.”
“It’s going to be many hours. I’ve spent two hours with it, and it blew me away. It was insane to watch where this is taking us. Not only was it mindblowing visually, but also the way it was played, ” said Mads.
“It’s kind of out of the box, something we’ve never ever seen before. And I guess that’s what people expect from Hideo Kojima. He is the Godfather of creating new things.”
Death Stranding will be out on November 8, 2019, exclusively for the PS4. Sony has started to aggressively promote the game by releasing a CGI trailer and promoting it in selected theatres before the launch of blockbuster movies.
