Earlier this week, Sony Interactive Entertainment and Kojima Productions not only released a brand-new, meaty Death Stranding trailer, but it announced the upcoming Kojima game will release on November 8 of this year. As you would expect, the new, lengthy trailer revealed numerous characters we haven't seen before, but it also provided deeper and more revealing looks at characters we already knew were in the game, such as the one portrayed by Mads Mikkelsen.
And according to Kojima, the upcoming PS4 game will not only have plenty of Mads Mikkelsen, but scenes that fans of his will love.
Dear Mads fans: there are many scenes in DS which I think you’ll love. In this trailer there’s Mads covered in blood, Mads tied, smoking Mads, variations with Mads’ eyes, Mads with glasses... Singing Mads & Mads in battledress were new challenges. pic.twitter.com/C3eEibpiTx— HIDEO_KOJIMA (@HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN) May 29, 2019
As you would expect, fans of the actor are excited at the prospect of seeing the actor so much in the game, which has a premier cast of actors, including Norman Reedus and Troy Baker.

You already had me on the 'Smoking Mads'. Such brilliant actors working with such a wonderful person as you makes my heart aches for more and more of Death Stranding. I'm looking forward to play your game, Koji-san, with the same smile as I played Metal Gear Solid for the 1 time.— Wash (@lothermus) May 29, 2019

Death Stranding is in development for the PS4 and the PS4 only. While it's possible the game will eventually be ported to PS5 in some capacity, there's been no official word of such a port. That said, a new report has surfaced claiming the game will come to PC either six months or a year after it releases on PS4.
