It seems like former Metal Gear Solid director and Death Stranding creator Hideo Kojima is really great friends with Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead. The two were set to work together on Silent Hills before Konami canceled that game, fearing that they would make a ton of money, and have reunited for Death Stranding. While news on that game is still pretty minimal, these new photos of the two are quite fun and should be #bromancegoals.
Kojima shared some pictures of he and Reedus on Twitter, confirming that he visited the actor during a Walking Dead shooting day. It’s pretty cool seeing these two chilling with each other like this and we can only hope that they are super, duper good friends in real life. Hopefully, Guillermo del Toro isn’t too jealous.
The pics when I visited TWD Season9 set in Atlanta back in June this year finally came to me. I had pic with @wwwbigbaldhead & @JDMorgan. Norman drove the Go-cart to show us around the huge set of TWD thoroughly.?????☔️ pic.twitter.com/nLpdrXcine— HIDEO_KOJIMA (@HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN) November 15, 2018
Why the two decided to meet up is still a mystery, though there is a good chance that it was due to something Death Stranding-related. Reedus’ character is the one players will be controlling and all of the technology we’ve seen for the game looks outstanding. It seems like they will be using very good motion-capture technology and that’s a very good thing.
Death Stranding is a PS4 exclusive but does not have a release date, as of this writing. Reedus is now the lead star of The Walking Dead, after previously being a major supporting character.
