Does Death Stranding Have A Metal Gear Solid Character?

Does Death Stranding Have A Metal Gear Solid Character?

Thanks to the split between Death Stranding director Hideo Kojima and Konami, it’s unlikely that the legendary game developer will ever make another Metal Gear Solid game again. While Kojima himself won’t have the opportunity to work on a new Metal Gear Solid game, however, that doesn’t appear to have stopped him from including a character from the franchise in Death Stranding.

After analyzing the new Death Stranding trailer from The Game Awards, a number of eagle-eyed fans have pointed out the silhouette of what appears to be none other than recurring Metal Gear Solid villain Psycho Mantis. What this means for Death Stranding remains to be seen, but fans can check out the silhouette in question in the image below.

Does Death Stranding Have A Metal Gear Solid Character? - Psycho Mantis

Konami owns the rights to the Metal Gear Solid franchise, so it’s highly unlikely that Kojima will include any characters from the franchise in the final version of Death Stranding. However, that doesn’t mean he can’t reference or pay homage to the franchise that he built his career on, and that appears to be exactly what he’s doing by including the form of Psycho Mantis in the new Death Stranding trailer.

Of course, it’s possible that this being isn’t Psycho Mantis at all, but rather a brand new character. The supernatural enemies that have been seen in some of Death Stranding‘s trailers are somewhat reminiscent of Psycho Mantis in the way they float above Norman Reedus, and so maybe fans are seeing one of them in the trailer instead of the famous Metal Gear Solid baddie.

Ultimately, fans will have to wait for Hideo Kojima to reveal more information on Death Stranding. As unlikely as it is that Death Stranding would feature any Metal Gear Solid characters, anything is possible with Kojima, and the conspiracy theories surrounding his new game will likely continue in the months leading up to its release.

Death Stranding is in development for PlayStation 4.
