Smoking isn’t cool kids, but this latest photo of some of Death Stranding’s cast finest is. In the latest tweet from Hideo Kojima’s personal assistant, Ayako, the three legends are taking some time out of their hectic schedule to have a smoke.

Kojima’s own company, Kojima Productions, is currently hard at work on Death Stranding, and American actor – best known for his ‘The Walking Dead’ role – Norman Reedus is one of the main characters. Rogue One actor Mads Mikkelsen also plays an important role in the PS4 exclusive. Here are the trio, just taking some time out to have a smoke and maybe reflect on what they’re about to create for PS4 gamers.

Any photo that has the creator of the amazing Metal Gear series in it, has the potential to become an iconic snapshot of video game history. And this is one of our favorite photos of Kojima to date, which captures him alongside two of the stars of his latest video game just enjoying their time out of production. We think it also captures just how relaxed they are around each other, despite working on a game that has immensely high expectations.

Published by Sony Interactive Entertainment, Death Stranding is one of the most anticipated PS4 exclusives. So far, it’s unclear exactly what the game is about as it’s shrouded in mystery. We’re expecting to hear more about Death Stranding later this year during the PlayStation E3 2018 conference, but this trailer should give you a clue that it’s not your standard video game.

Alongside working on the development of Death Stranding, it appears that Kojima has another surprise for 2018. We’ve been speculating wildly what that could be, and we’ve whittled it down to the following:

  • He's bought the Metal Gear IP from Konami with backing from Sony!
  • He bought the Silent Hill IP with backing from Sony!
  • The reveal of a new IP.

Kojima is a genius, and it’s likely that whatever it is he’ll surprise us. Until then, let’s just enjoy this photo and pretend that we’re right there having a smoke with one of PlayStation’s most revered legends.

    I’d love to see MGS5 finished with the additional 3 chapters it was supposed to have rather than the out-of-left-field ending we got. I mean, that ending would have stayed, but it would have been less out-of-left-field, because we’d see it hinted at more.

    Even so, MGS is corrupted in my mind, anyhow, by Kojima ditching David Hayter. He IS Snake, and Kiefer is always just a high class mistress and eventual trophy wife.

      hayter was terrible, just had a really trashy vibe, kiefer sutherland was sooooo much better

      • Evangeliman

        Lol no.

        I’d say that Kiefer’s performance was “solid” but without emotion/passion.
        Hayter breathed life into the character, in my opinion, in a way that Kiefer didn’t.

        What’s a polite way of saying F off, anyhow?

      • Honomaru

        Wow. So I definitely smashed the dislike button for your over-the-top negative description of Hayter as Snake. lol

        Really trashy vibe? Huh? What’s with all the verbal theatrics? Hayter was iconic as Snake, cartoony as it may seem now, it definitely fit the series for the time. All the actors were over-the-top then. It was a localized Japanese series that Kojima only in the end decided to make the voices sound more grounded for crying out loud. If Sutherland had done the voices for any other game (except POSSIBLY 4) he would sound so out of place.

        Your unnecessarily salty comment sounds like you lost this debate in real life and ran to the internet to try again. xD

      >> and Kiefer is always just a high class mistress and eventual trophy wife.
