Death Stranding Bridge Baby speaks through PS4 controller's speaker

The Limited Edition PS4 Pro for Death Stranding has an unexpected special feature that allows a BB to talk to you via your DualShock controller.

As if it wasn’t weird enough already, director Hideo Kojima has revealed that Death Stranding will speak to you through its controller, or rather the BB (Bridge Baby) from all the trailers will.

When Kojima tweeted the news, he implied that the feature was only available to those who buy the special limited edition PS4 Pro and its unique, BB-themed DualShock 4 controller. Although there’s no reason ordinary controllers shouldn’t be able to do it as well, as they all have speakers.

The limited edition controller is already coloured like the BB pods from the game, and at one point fans convinced themselves you could see a little plastic baby inside it, but that’s not the case.

What is a bridge baby for in Death Stranding?

Within the context of the game’s story a BB, which was seen even in the very earliest Death Stranding teaser trailers, is taken from the womb of a brain dead mother and used as a bridge to the world of the dead, so that in-game characters can see BTs.

Why there’s such a ready supply of clinically dead mothers, and what exactly the BTs are, hasn’t been revealed yet but knowing Kojima the answer is likely to be very complicated and very odd.

Although you did get a good sense of how the game in general works, and how the BT enemies behave, in the recent 48-minute Tokyo Game Show demo.

The limited edition PS4 Pro was thought to be an ordinary console and controller, just with Death Stranding branded livery, and to be honest it’s still likely the speaker trick will work on all controllers.

It’s already known that you’ll be able to soothe an agitated BB by rocking a controller like a baby, and making use of it is motion controls, so it may be that there are other special features waiting to be revealed as well.

Death Stranding will be released on 8 November and is a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
