‘Death Stranding’ Pee Mode Makes Your Hands Smell Like Norman Reedus’s Piss
Death Stranding won’t be released until November 8th, but it’s already one of the most-anticipated video games of all time. The game’s legendary creator, Hideo Kojima, has shrouded the project in mystery, providing only minimal details in interviews and alluding to a surprising and genre-bending final product. Luckily, we have some exciting new info: Death Stranding will reportedly feature a pee mode that makes your hands smell like piss. You heard it here first!
After reaching out to Kojima, hoping to get more insight, all we heard back was, “It’s always been my vision to make your hands smell like piss.” The creator is known for ruffling feathers and pushing the boundaries of what a video game looks and feels like, but it seems like he’s messing with us, right? Like, how does it even work?
What Will It Look Like?
Here’s what we know: While playing as Norman Reedus’s character, you can take a detour once every fifteen minutes and enter into “Pee Mode.” You’re in the character’s POV as he looks around for a place to relieve himself, and then suddenly there’s piss all over your hands, and you can smell it. We don’t know if there’s an added piss-smell-cartridge you have to purchase for your controller or what. But we guess it’s weirdly kind of impressive? We guess? Maybe we’re just not getting this. Kojima is a genius, right? Geniuses are sometimes ahead of their time.
Again … Why?
Everything else about this game looks amazing. Kojima has proven to be a visionary creator, and the game features a star-studded “cast,” so maybe we should just get on board with Death Stranding pee mode. Maybe we just need to be more open-minded. Maybe, by presenting something we’ve never experienced in a video game before (i.e. smelling like piss) Kojima is giving us something we don’t even know we need.
On the other hand, this could just be one of many features Kojima added so he can laugh at our expense. We’re definitely buying the game the day it comes out either way.
