Baby in a jar in a controller.
Saying “Hideo Kojima does weird stuff” is like saying “EA really likes live service games.” Of course Hideo Kojima does weird stuff, and he’s doing a lot of it in Death Stranding too. It’s hard to say just what the weirdest thing is in the entire game – there’s tough competition for that title – but the fact that you carry a baby in a jar with you at all times is definitely in contention.
When you’re playing Death Stranding, this baby – called BB – will often make noises and interact with you, and Kojima recently revealed on Twitter that the noises it makes will come from the speakers on your DualShock 4 controller (at least if you choose that in the game’s settings). Considering the fact that you’ll be soothing the BB by rocking your controller, it looks like the DualShock 4 is going to act as a conduit of sorts with this weird bottled baby. It’s pretty neat, then, that the DualShock 4 in the limited edition Death Stranding-themed PS4 Pro looks like a BB pod.
Death Stranding recently wrapped up development, and is out exclusively for the PS4 on November 8- and you won’t require a PS Plus subscription to enjoy the game’s multiplayer features. Kojima has recently been teasing a launch trailer as well, so be on the lookout for that in the coming days.
By setting, you’ll be able to have BB’s voice coming out from this BBish controller👍🌈🦀☔️🐟🐋🐬💀👶✋🤩 pic.twitter.com/BzBRI4Oyxb
