Over the course of its development, Hideo Kojima has been showing Death Stranding to various developers across the industry behind closed doors. And every developer has left praising the game. From revolutionary to amazing, if there's a positive adjective to say about the game, someone has said it about the upcoming PS4 exclusive. The latest person to praise the game is Rez creator and Tetris Effect producer Tetsuya Mizuguchi, who recently saw the game's latest build.
Taking to Twitter, the visionary revealed that he "touched the heart of Death Stranding," which is "stunning." Adding in Japanese, Mizuguchi said that it's true: the game is great. And of course, he's excited to play the final product himself.

As you may know, Kojima has been teasing a new trailer for the game a lot recently, suggesting one is arriving in the next month or two. From the sounds of it, it may be another extended look at the game, unless Mizuguchi was shown something completely different. Whatever the case, we should be seeing and hearing more about the mysterious title soon.
