Mads Mikkelsen, the actor behind one of Death Stranding’s main characters, has said that even he doesn’t understand everything he’s been told about the game.
In an interview with film site Birth Movies Death, Mikkelsen explained that the game is “very intricate” and that he would “have to see” it before he is able to fully understand it.
“I mean, you know [Kojima]. He’s a very brilliant man,” he said. “I mean… the stuff he told me? I only understood some of it.”
He continued: “There was a lot of [mimes being baffled] ‘What?’ I have to see it before I understand, because with Death Stranding, he’s creating something completely new.”

Mikkelsen was revealed as one of the game’s major characters in a new trailer released last week, where he will star alongside The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus.
“I also saw the trailer he had done with Norman Reedus, and I thought that was spectacular just from the standpoint of an actor,” Mikkelsen continued. “The emotion, the feeling of it, the sensuality in what he does. Without even being a gamer, I was like, this is crazy, what he’s doing. I loved it.”
Kojima, of course, has become famous for his intricate storytelling within the Metal Gear Solid series.
“Well, in a way, he is making films. He’s creating his own worlds,” Mikkelsen adds. “And he’s letting us be the director, in a way.”
A release date for Death Stranding has yet to be announced. Expect it to arrive on PlayStation 4 first before heading to PC at a later.
