Hideo Kojima Talks Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and its E3 Trailer

on May 31, 2014 10:32 AM

Legendary Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima posted on Twitter a few more details on what we can expect from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and from the trailer he’s working on for E3.

There are many players of “Ground Zeroes” who are asking, what happens to Snake and the others, exactly what is going on? Also the growth in maps and the addition of time and climates to the game, in which we call “Free Infiltration”, is something that players may worry about. They will mostly think “How big is this game going to get?” and we are going to give everyone a little taste of it at E3.

Many people have played “Peace Walker” for tens and even hundreds of hours, and as they head on to play “Ground Zeroes” alongside Snake and Kaz, well, there will be more people who will be lost here. That is why you don’t stand on the sidelines like in a movie, this is a feeling that you can only get whilst playing a game, and once you have completed “Ground Zeroes” the users will also feel a certain phantom pain. That is where “The Phantom Pain” will begin…

Konami also posted on its own twitter account, mentioning “June 10th. E3. Snake Returns”.

That’s actually rather interesting, as Sony’s and Microsoft’s press conference are on the 9th, but it could just refer to E3’s official start date on June 10th.

Looks like things are heating up at Kojima Productions, and personally I can’t wait to see the result.
