Kojima’s highly anticipated new game, Death Stranding, looks like it might be adding a new star to the cast. The internet has erupted in speculation due to a few posts that indicate Mads Mikkelsen will be in Kojima’s upcoming title. As already stated, this is all speculation, there has been no official announcement on this news.
So why is the internet already sure he will be in the game? Well, a few days ago Kojima posted this picture on twitter.

At first, it doesn’t seem like much. We had already known this sort of work was underway since Kojima had retweeted a picture of himself moments before. But a user on NeoGAF named Sn4ke_911 spotted something pretty interesting. They found an Instagram post by the user jmerskine1.
Not only is Mads Mikkelsen wearing the same orange color jumper, he also said he was in Sheffield to act in a video game, mentioning that it was a Japanese game. The poster also mentioned that “He was very intentionally vague”. This information is enough to convince a lot of people online that he will be in the game.
It wouldn’t be all too surprising that Kojima would want to get Mads Mikkelsen in Death Stranding due to the fact in the past he has stated that Mikkelsen is his favorite actor.
