Hideo Kojima Productions is working on a video game with Elle Fanning (The Great). The collaboration was announced as part of an elaborate teaser campaign that began at the Tokyo Game Show in September.
It shared an image of a face obscured in shadow with the tagline “Who Am I?” at the time. On Friday, fans got an answer to that question when they discovered a QR code with a link to the Kojima Productions website at PAX Aus.
The website features an updated version of the image, which includes a portrait of Fanning.
Following that, Kojima tweeted that there would be more teasers and an eventual reveal. In terms of what they indicate, Polygon believes Friday’s teaser is most likely related to a Death Stranding sequel.

In an interview in May, actor Norman Reedus revealed that he had “just begun” work on a second game in the series.
Despite the fact that Kojima Productions has yet to formally announce the title, a producer at the studio shared Kojima’s tweet with the hashtag #DeathStranding. That tweet was later removed.

However, it’s worth noting that Kojima is collaborating with Microsoft on at least one “completely new game.”
The auteur’s “Where Am I?” image could also be a reference to “Overdose,” a horror game he’s reportedly working on with Death Stranding and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actress Margaret Qualley.
In any case, Kojima is expected to reveal more details about his next project at The Game Awards on December 9th, as he has a long history with host Geoff Keighley.
