Death Stranding contains a collection of cameos from creator Hideo Kojima’s celebrity friends. Poke around and you’ll find comedian Conan O’Brien, director Edgar Wright, and Remedy boss Sam Lake.
You’ll also find Hirokazu Hamamura and Necky the Fox – names, perhaps, you’re less familiar with. But in Japan, Kotaku reports, their inclusion is stirring up debate.
Hamamura is the high profile former editor-in-chief of Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu and now president of its publisher Enterbrain. Necky the Fox is Famitsu magazine’s mascot.
