Acclaimed director Guillermo del Toro is “not involved, creatively” with Death Stranding

Guillermo del Toro, acclaimed director of Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy and Crimson Peak, is not creatively involved with Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding.

Some believed del Toro had re-teamed with Kojima after their joint project P.T. was cancelled by Konami.

“I’m involved as a character. Kojima-san called me and said, ‘I want you to be a character in the game,’ and I said, ‘Gladly.’ He’s discussed his ideas so I could understand the character, but other than that I’m not involved, creatively, at all,” he told IGN.

Del Toro added: “This is entirely Kojima-san’s game. I think it’s gonna be a fantastic game, 100%. But this is him and his ideas. I’m just a puppet in his hands. My contribution is limited to being a cheerleader for his ideas and being scanned for long hours at a time. That’s about it.”

Last year’s Death Stranding Game Awards trailer revealed del Toro as a character in the game, alongside Mads Mikkelsen and the earlier announced Norman Reedus.

Death Stranding will release exclusively for PS4.
