Death Stranding is coming to iPhone, though Apple forgot to mention it

Death Stranding’s iPhone port is official, and though Apple didn’t mention it in the recent event, Kojima’s game is coming to iPhone 15 Pro.

The recent Apple event brought with it four new phones over an hour and a half, though Apple still failed to mention Death Stranding’s iPhone port. The iPhone 15 announcement is all well and good, though it does get last year’s pro chip, the A16 Bionic, so nothing new. What is new, however, is the iPhone 15 Pro’s chip, the A17 Pro. This is the first 3nm smartphone chip, and with it, there’s big news for gamers.

We here at PT were a bit flabbergasted by the iPhone Resident Evil ports, Village and RE4 Remake, but then Apple went even further, by announcing Assassin’s Creed Mirage for iPhone 15 Pro. Yep, that’s right, a full-blown triple-A current-gen open-world game coming to a mobile phone and running natively. What Apple failed to mention in the event, however, is that there’s even more console goodness coming to our pockets.

That’s because Hideo Kojima’s 2019 open-world “strand” game is also coming to iPhone 15 Pro. That’s the full-blown Death Stranding Director’s Cut, too. As Kojima Productions said in a Tweet: “The “DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR’S CUT” for the iPhone that was revealed in the “Introducing iPhone 15 Pro” video, is scheduled to be released end of this year. That’s right, end of 2023”.
