"I'm Just a Puppet in Kojima's Hands", Says Guillermo Del Toro, Not Creatively Involved in Death Stranding

Guillermo Del Toro as a character in Death Stranding.

Speaking with IGN, Del Toro said:

“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 further 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.”

Del Toro is a character in Death Stranding, along with Mads Mikkelsen and Norman Reedus. Death Stranding will launch exclusively on the Sony PlayStation 4. It’s release date is not revealed yet.
