Hideo Kojima is truly a tease, and that’s something he’s been pretty good at in terms of keeping fans at bay on when exactly he’ll be releasing his next game in the long running Metal Gear Solid series, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Through each update made since the true nature of the sequel was announced in the 2013 Game Developers’ Conference, it was clear that the head of Kojima Productions had a grand vision in mind for his latest stealth action game baby, and that involved making it the most immersive and expansive entry in the series to date.
Now with this year’s annual Tokyo Game Show event happening this week, fans are once again treated to a new trailer for the game, one that not only features main character Snake and his allies, but one of the new character’s appearing in the series for the first time – the mysterious and mute sniper known as “Quiet“. In the new footage shown for TGS, the silent and controversial looking shooter makes a grand entrance to Mother Base and displays some of her powers for the first time. She then encounters series’ mainstays Kazuhira Miller, Ocelot, and of course the lead himself Snake, aka Big Boss.
Here’s the new TGS ’14 trailer, which is currently in Japanese. A link to the English trailer will be added once Konami makes one available online.
Speaking of gameplay, Kojima also demoed a 20 minute plus playthrough of the game featuring an African Jungle location.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain comes out for the Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC/ Steam sometime in 2015.
