This week’s The Game Awards – which last year featured an anthropomorphic razor blade – has announced that industry legend Hideo Kojima will be returning to the award show to present an award.

In a tweet earlier today, The Game Awards producer and creator Geoff Keighley announced that Kojima will present an award alongside filmmaker Guillermo del Toro.

Kojima and del Toro are working together on Death Stranding after their Silent Hills project was cancelled. The world premiere of Death Stranding was shown at last year’s event.

Will Death Stranding make another appearance at The Game Awards? Let the endless speculation continue!

Felicia Day, Alisha Tyler and Zachary Levi will also present awards in what I’m sure will be a very restrained and respectful awards show, highlighting the great work done in the video games industry over the last year.

The Game Awards start at 12:30 AEDT on December 8.

  • Kojima and del Toro are working together on Death Stranding after their Silent Hills project was cancelled.

    Pretty sure del Toro is just lending his likeness to the game, he’s not involved officially, i wouldn’t bat an eyelid if he does end up working on it, but at this point it’s just a character who looks like him.

    • I cant remember the article i saw it in but im pretty sure del Toro himself said he was working with Kojima. Happy to be proved wrong :).
