The latest news about Death Stranding 2: On The Beach has been confirmed by Hideo Kojima, and it’s not what some fans were hoping for. Mads Mikkelsen will not be returning to play the character Clifford Unger in the upcoming sequel. Kojima assured fans that while Mikkelsen’s character will not be in the new game, he will remain a significant part of the history of Death Stranding.
Unger played a crucial role in the plot of the original Death Stranding game, and his character was central to the emotionally charged story. Despite the disappointment of some fans, Kojima emphasized the importance of Unger’s character and the impact he had in the first game. He explained that Mikkelsen’s portrayal of Unger was exceptional and that the character will be remembered forever in the history of Death Stranding.
While some fans were disappointed by the news, others understood and appreciated the decision. They acknowledged that Unger’s story had a satisfying conclusion in the first game and that bringing him back for the sequel could potentially devalue the impact of his character’s arc.
The trailers for Death Stranding 2: On The Beach have revealed that Norman Reedus will reprise his role as Sam Porter Bridges, the protagonist of the game. Troy Baker will also return to play the antagonist, Higgs Monaghan. Additionally, Lea Seydoux will reprise her role as Fragile, and there will be a cast of new characters, including those played by Elle Fanning and a puppet modeled after the film’s director, Fatih Akin, and voiced by actor Jonathan Roumie.
Despite the absence of Mads Mikkelsen’s character, fans can still look forward to an exciting and compelling sequel to the original Death Stranding game. The return of familiar characters and the introduction of new ones promise to deliver an engaging and immersive experience for players. While Unger may not be a part of the new game, his legacy will undoubtedly continue to influence the world of Death Stranding.
