Death Stranding: Mads Mikkelsen’s character name possibly leaked

Death Stranding is a project that, since its announcement, has aroused great curiosity in the audience, always looking for details and clues. A reddit user, deeply analyzing a video, has managed recently to discover a file that could be very interesting.


Hideo Kojima spoke some time ago about the character of Norman Reedus and then, recently, the technology behind the development of Death Stranding.

The details about the mysterious exclusively title for PlayStation 4 of the famous game is still little known from the Japanese director, however, and now some users have started looking everywhere to steal some reference or some clue waiting to learn more about the game at E3 2017.

Well, from its photogrammetry files made for Mads Mikkelsen a name was found, John, that could belong to the character played by the Danis actor.

By now we know that among the actors of the cast of Death Stranding, as well as Norman Reedus and Guillermo Del Toro, there is also the actor Mads Mikkelsen, who lends his features to a character shown in one of the trailer of the game. There is no specific information regarding the characteristics and roles of the main characters glimpsed, but the Reddit user “Sashkuh” has managed to extract from a video starring Hideo Kojima a file related to the model played by Mikkelsen. The file name, in fact, was the result of a character that would be called as John Sheffield.

However it was clarified rapidly on Reddit that Sheffield is actually the place where the photogrammetry has been realized. Following the same reasoning, it is possible that John is the name of the person who carried out the operation and has nothing to do with the character of Mikkelsen.

At present, however, this information is not confirmed, so we invite you to take the news with a pinch of salt.
