Tokyo Game Show 2018 is starting in a few days, revealing new games and more information about already announced ones. Sony has a huge showcase already in store for us at the Japan event and most likely Death Stranding will be one of the showcased video games.
There’s a few indications that Death Stranding will be making an appearance at TGS 2018. For starters, looking at the Playstation Lineup Tour, you can see a sci-fi poster which more or less resembles the theme of Kojima Productions with Ludens. If this sounds crazy, the next piece of information is not.
As a user on Reddit correct fully pointed out, the Japanese reading on the Playstation Lineup Tour reads “Going on a journey to explore new worlds”. Hideo Kojima has recently used similar words on his social media, which could be the theme of a major lineup of sci-fi games for Tojeyo Game Show 2018.
Additionally, Kojima has posted pictures on his social media with merchandise that he hash tagged with TGS. This pretty much confirms that Death Stranding will be showcased at the event and why not, get a first bit of gameplay or its release date.
