Hideo Kojima Trying “Something Different” for His E3 Trailer of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Legendary Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has been working for a while on a trailer for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain that will debut at E3, and today he mentioned that he’s trying to do something different from the usual fare:

Likewise I expect type of E3 trailers this year will be like Hollywood action movie organized with explosion, collapse, destruction, (cont)

hanging, car-chase, magnificent vista or mob scene. But what I’m making is different from those mentioned above. Trying less lines/scripts.

As got feedback from people played GZ that they wanna revenge in TPP, I’m adding hints of what happens to Snake & his team in E3 trailer.

The Japanese version  of the last tweet was slightly different, and included a few more details.

I received a lot of feedback from those that played GZ: “I want to dispel the game’s sadness.” “I want to take revenge soon.” “I can’t wait for TPP!” So what is going to become of Snake on this new trailer? How far will he fall? As you can imagine I’m adding a lot of hints in this trailer.

Personally, having enjoyed Ground Zeroes, I’m definitely in the camp of those that can’t wait for a healthy dose of sweet revenge. We’re only three weeks away from E3, and it’ll be interesting to see on which stage this trailer will appear. You can place your bets in the comments below.
