Death Stranding and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Have Similar Themes

When Death Stranding and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Collide

Death Stranding creator and film connoisseur Hideo Kojima recently took to Twitter to express his enjoyment of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which recently won the Academy Award for animated feature. Not only that, he said the theme of the film “is like TPP+DS.”

“TTP” and “DS” probably refer to Kojima’s latest projects, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and Death Stranding, and fans are already coming up with theories that explain that tweet. Check out a few theories from Reddit users below.




Death Stranding still has no fixed release date, and its story is unclear. But a recent interview with Norman Reedus, who plays the main character, recently dropped a few more vague hints.

“The concept is so far out into the future,” he said. “Instead of eliminating everyone around you, it’s bringing everyone together. It’s a very positive video game, but scary and depressing at the same time.”
