Hideo Kojima unveils Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain


The 2013 Game Developers Conference was in for a surprise when Hideo Kojima came up on stage covered in bandages, to announce the release of ‘Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’. Kojima’s getup was similar to the mysterious character that was unveiled during the trailer for The Phantom Pain.  

In the trailer for the new game, Snake can be seen in a coma and slowly coming to his senses. From here the landscape changes and Snake is seen in various combat scenarios. The current trailer has components of other previously released trailers as well, from the likes of ‘Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes’.

The trailer does look like the graphics of the upcoming game will be quite good. It also sits on the power FOX engine generates. It  quite eventful that Kojima announced the release of Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain, as it has been under wraps for a while now. He went on to post on social networking site Twitter that Metal Gear Solid V comes after Ground Zeroes and that The Phantom Pain has been set 9 years after Solid V takes place. Thus Metal Gear Solid V lies between Phantom Paid and Ground Zeroes and will touch on both stories.
