Death Stranding: New Vegas
Story details from a post-showcase interview with Kojima have come out. Was misled by conflicting information; this is half from the trailer's description and half speculation based on an old leak that turned out surprisingly accurate.
Like I speculated a page back, it's a post-apocalypse brought on by an event called "The Death Stranding", caused by some Eldritch Abomination / Starfish Aliens and the mysterious phlebotinum "Chiralium," and Sam is a courier in this desolate world. The story revolves around his latest, most important job - safely transporting THE BABY (which was genetically engineered for an as-yet-unknown purpose) across the dangerous wilderness.

Care to provide a link?
Sure, just a sec.
EDIT: Was wrong about it coming from an interview (I heard this stuff second-hand), but part of it comes from the trailer's official description◊. Still looking for the rest.
DOUBLEDIT: Actually it seems some of this isn't confirmed at all, and may be partially speculation. My bad...
It at least partially derives from an old leak that accurately predicted Mads Mikkelsen, Lindsey Wagner, and Troy Baker's involvement. The leak claims that the plot starts off with Sam working for the US Government and going on a mission to space, only for an accident to occur and leave him in the post-"Death Stranding" world with no memory of how he got there.

So I rewatched the trailers, and I'm pretty sure all that bizarre Kojima stuff in the third trailer is what the "voidout" that gets mentioned in the fourth looks like.
So...it looks like the game might show up at this year's Tokyo Game Show.
Can we handle that?
me with death stranding be like:
homina homina homina homina
Apparently Kojima-san is doing...something...with famed American comedian talk show host and clueless gamer Conan O'Brien.
Death Stranding TGS event happens in 3 and a half hours. Countdown here, Livestream (in unsubtitled Japanese, unfortunately) here.
T-minus five minutes. Here's hoping for some deeper gameplay.
EDIT: And we are go.
EDIT 2: All in Japanese, which I don't speak, so details are gonna be scarce until someone translates.
EDIT 3: Okay, getting exhausted. Going to bed. Probably going to miss the coolest part or something, but I can't keep my eyes open much longer...

Aaand Kojima and co walk off stage and we cut to an ad for the next Devil May Cry. Fan-fuckin'-tastic.
Okay did we actually get anything substantial?
Troy Baker mask guy is quite honestly the first thing about this game that I found interesting.
Can I get a screenshot regarding the livestream? That seems interesting tbh.
Gematsu has an article covering everything on the presentation.

Thanks... Will read it at a later time. Cant wait for the game to be released.
Finally, a proper Skeleton Warriors game!
Gold-masked oil panther made out of damned souls, OK.

I can tell Troy Baker had a lot of fun voicing this golden skull guy.
Golden Masked guy looks neat I guess haha.
Stephanie Joosten might have been slyly revealed in the new cinematic?
Jordan Vogt-Roberts to Twitter: YOU. ARE. NOT. READY. FOR. THIS. GAME.
so we'll release it in a few more years from now?
Damn Kojima, you really getting a ton of folks to build up your hype machine, aren't ya?
