Death Stranding won’t have “characters with big breasts” and “no back story” thanks to “different approach”


This'll be good.

Speaking with BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat, developer Hideo Kojima promised that Death Stranding won’t be as overly sexualised as his last title, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

Kojima went as far to proclaim his latest will “have a different approach for the next game,” while drawing attention to The Phantom Pain‘s Quiet (shown above).

“What I really want to avoid is, like you see in some games, characters with big breasts with no back story,” Kojima said.

“If I make characters that at first glance might look like this then they’ll have a deep background story to give a specific reason why.”

In the case of Quiet, we were told she needs to breathe through her skin. Gamers didn’t buy it.

We’ll have more on Death Stranding as it becomes available.
