While the details on Hideo Kojima’s next production Death Stranding are scarce, every now and then we receive a little update that reassures us that the game will be able to match other titles directed by Kojima at the very least in production values. Today we have known that two well-known voice actors have also joined the cast of the game. They are Troy Baker and Emily O’Brien, who revealed the news through a post on Instagram which was deleted some time after, although by then the picture had already spreaded all over the Internet.
Baker has played some truly significant roles such as Joel from The Last of Us, Samuel Drake on the Uncharted series, or Bruce Wayne on the Batman series by Telltale. Most significantly, he also played Revolver Ocelot on Kojima’s previous game: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
O’Brien has played Gamora on the Guardians of the Galaxy videogame by Telltale, Iman Avesta on Batman: The Enemy Within, Camille on League of Legends, or Y’shtola on Final Fantasy XIV, and on TV she has appeared on The Young and the Restless. On the picture shared online, we can see both actors posing for the photo along with Norman Reedus, who plays the protagonist of the game.
The last we saw of Death Stranding was at the Game Awards 2017, where Kojima showed a new trailer that was just as interesting as confusing, although it introduced more details on the universe of the game.
Death Stranding is in development for PS4. Take a look at the photo of the actors below.
