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.
