As of late, much more has finally been revealed about Death Stranding. After a ton of Gamescom 2019 footage, gamers finally have more to look forward to about this Kojima-developed game starring Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen. Following Tokyo Game Show 2019, gamers may finally have enough content to keep them salivating until the game's November release.
Hideo Kojima is a very vocal gaming industry figure on Twitter, with photos of Kojima and Keanu Reeves together on Twitter becoming a recent topic of discussion. Most recently, he revealed on the social media platform that 49 minutes of Death Stranding footage will be brought to the Tokyo Game Show, perhaps providing some exposition for the game, which is still incredibly mysterious.
On Twitter, the Metal Gear Solid series director posted a photo of a screen with the game's title, captioned, "It's going to be 49 mins long." He added an exhausted emoji to truly express how hard he's working to simultaneously deliver a great game while not keeping it under wraps too tightly.

The length of the footage to be shown at TGS does make one wonder what it will entail. Some story element reveals would be quite pleasing to onlookers, as Death Stranding's plot is still highly ambiguous, at best.
Perhaps other, more minor components will be shown at TGS. A urinating mechanic in Death Stranding was revealed at Gamescom, which could make multiplayer matches very odd. More could be shown of this, or maybe more combat in the game will be presented to viewers of the footage. Regardless, 49 minutes is a huge chunk of time and has many very excited to watch Death Stranding's content from Gamescom.
As it stands, Death Stranding has been a highly anticipated game for quite some time and is certainly one of the most anticipated games to come out this year, alongside the likes of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Borderlands 3, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Luigi's Mansion 3, and Shenmue III. Coming from the man who led the development of one of the most intriguing series of all-time, there are very high expectations for Death Stranding, come its November release.
