Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain Launch Trailer!

Glorious melancholy marks what may be the Final Metal Gear Solid.

Preceded by a tweet from Hideo Kojima himself, here’s the Launch Trailer for the stealth action sequel, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. It’s a remarkably shorter spot than you’d expect, but strangely fitting- with about 2/3 of it consisting of a montage of footage from past MGS games- a somewhat bittersweet look back at the series’ many chapters- from the original Metal Gear Solid to Snake Eater to Guns of the Patriots and Peace Walker. With Kojima and Konami parting ways, perhaps irreversibly, this may indeed be the last MGS as we have known it, and that truly is something to mull upon sadly.

The trailer continues though with a rather ominous segment from Phantom Pain, featuring the newest Metal Gear, plus a rather telling final segment that raises a TON of questions for this impending stealth-action epic.

It’s only about a week away. September 1. My Gosh, it’s been a wait but it looks to be worth it.

    I feel both exited and heartbroken equally.

    While I have waited this game so eagerly and now only week ahead before its release, the fact that this is end of an one glorious era and departure of perhaps the greatest director of all time makes me hurt deep within. Hideo will always be number one role model to me: he is the one who inspired me into creative work in the first place. Arigato, Sensei.
