After a sequence of classically Kojima Twitter teasers (opens in new tab), the developer has revealed that actress Elle Fanning (opens in new tab) (The Neon Demon, Galveston) will likely be making an look in… one thing being made by Kojima Productions.
Through the Tokyo Recreation Present, the developer unveiled a web site and a cryptic tweet, each that includes a picture of a silhouetted girl and textual content studying “WHO am I?” On October 5, Kojima tweeted that “The reply to ‘WHO’ at TGS will likely be within the subsequent ‘WHERE.'” The “WHERE” in query appears to have been PAX East, the place content material creator @n4sa discovered a Kojima Productions commercial with a QR code linking to a reveal of the thriller girl as Fanning. Moreover, early on October 7, Kojima tweeted out a affirmation that “WHO” is Fanning.

However the enjoyable does not cease there. A day earlier, on October 6, the developer requested “WHO is WHERE? (opens in new tab)” over one other silhouetted girl, whereas I want to know WHERE is my ASPIRIN. One sharp-eyed fan within the feedback, @MichaelPayneV (opens in new tab), argues this second girl is actress Shioli Kutsuma (opens in new tab), maybe most well-known for her position in Deadpool 2, and truthfully that appears pretty much as good a guess as any.
Now WHAT may this all be for? It does not really feel like Dying Stranding to me, however there is a cause Kojima is the beloved auteur and I’m solely left to puzzle out his cryptic leavings. My cash’s on this being a teaser for Kojima’s aforementioned collaboration with Microsoft (opens in new tab) quite than something within the Dying Stranding Continuum. Then once more… are these strands I see on the Elle Fanning poster? Solely Kojima is aware of for positive.
Kojima’s textual content accompanying the Elle Fanning Tweet (opens in new tab), “TGS→’WHO’→ ELLE / PAX→’WHERE’→??? / ???→’???’→???” signifies that there will likely be but yet one more of the 5 Ws accompanied by a silhouetted actor within the coming weeks, maybe with a reveal at The Recreation Awards 2022 in November. I’ll stake a declare on it being “‘WHY’→BELOVED CHARACTER ACTOR PAUL WALTER HAUSER (opens in new tab), MOST FAMOUS FOR HIS ROLES IN RICHARD JEWELL AND I THINK YOU SHOULD LEAVE.
