The release of Death Stranding is now only a few months away, and it’s not far-fetched to say that the game gives off a little bit of a weird vibe and is still shrouded in a cloud of mystery. Case in point: at Comic-Con 2019, game director Hideo Kojima explained how Death Stranding is inspired by Donkey Kong.

Upon arriving in the United States, customs officers noticed Kojima carrying something unusual, which prompted them to stop him and find out what exactly he was bringing into the country. As it turns out, the item in question was a Death Stranding prop known as a BB Pod.
