Death Stranding director Hideo Kojima recently sat down with actor Mads Mikkelsen to discuss how the character Cliff was created.
Kojima mentioned that he was looking to create a character that would be a reflection of Sam. Kojima is a fan of Mikkelsen, so he asked if he wanted to take the role of Cliff as it would be impossible to create the game without him.
Mikkelsen also mentions that Kojima tried to explain the game to him through a number of different paintings, drawings, and storyboards. Through this method, he was able to see what kind of feeling he was going for with this title.
