Kojima Productions' official Twitter account has revealed a total of 80 minutes of Death Stranding (opens in new tab) gameplay will be shown at the Tokyo Game Show 2019. 

The tweet states that 50 minutes of footage will be shown on September 12, followed by 30 minutes of gameplay on September 14, and finally a “voice actors session” closing out the event on September 15. Hideo Kojima is said to be in attendance throughout all three stage shows.

Tokyo Game Show 2019 is set to start on September 12 and will run until September 15, showcasing a whole host of upcoming games. We recently learned Death Stranding would be shown thanks to the official Japanese blog for PlayStation (opens in new tab), which confirmed its line-up at the show. Alongside Kojima Productions adventures with Norman Reedus, other big upcoming releases including Nioh 2 (opens in new tab), the Final Fantasy 7 remake (opens in new tab), and Yakuza 7 (opens in new tab) will be making an appearance. 

In recent months we've steadily seen more gameplay of Death Stranding. It's hard to forget the gameplay shown during Gamescom 2019 (opens in new tab) that saw Sam (aka Norman Reedius) pee on a mushroom, take a nap, and rock the baby known as BB back to sleep after he took a tumble down a hill. Kojima teased that the helping of footage shown at Gamescom was only just a small taster of what's to come.

Given what's been shown so far, what's yet to be revealed really is anyone's guess, but a total of 80 minutes across two separate shows is quite a substantial amount of play time. With the release date of November 8 getting ever closer, this could very well be the last big appearance Death Stranding makes before launch.

I started out writing for the games section of a student-run website as an undergrad, and continued to write about games in my free time during retail and temp jobs for a number of years. Eventually, I earned an MA in magazine journalism at Cardiff University, and soon after got my first official role in the industry as a content editor for Stuff magazine. After writing about all things tech and games-related, I then did a brief stint as a freelancer before I landed my role as a staff writer here at GamesRadar+. Now I get to write features, previews, and reviews, and when I'm not doing that, you can usually find me lost in any one of the Dragon Age or Mass Effect games, tucking into another delightful indie, or drinking far too much tea for my own good.
