In The Express last week, Kojima hinted at potential sequels to come for the “Death Stranding” series. The director suggested more games could see the creation of the ‘Strand’ genre. He said, “I want to relay the new game feeling to the user”
“Previously it was the stealth genre, but this time I just kind of call it the Strand genre. And if I want to establish a real genre, I feel that I need to create more games to make the genre a genre.”
Norman Reedus, best known for his role as Daryl Dixon in AMC’S The Walking Dead, spoke to IGN during The Walking Dead’s red carpet event on fourth wall breaking Easter eggs.
Norman said, “So there’s a lot of crossover Norman stuff in there because Hideo wanted you to relate to the character. He didn’t want just a generic character and he kind of did it through Norman a little bit, so you’ll see some Easter eggs or certain things that happen and you’ll go ‘oh that’s very Norman’, but he did that on purpose.”
