Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain E3 Trailer

Posted on June 15, 2015 at 2:13 pm by Stephen Janes

A new trailer for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was shown off during the festivities that is E3. Edited by series creator Hideo Kojima, the trailer shows the importance of language and “native tongues” and provides a further look into the upcoming tactical stealth title.

A few interesting things to note; in the trailer we see Snake (Big Boss) interacting with presumed villain Skull Face, which leads me to think there is more to their relationship than originally conceived. There is also a few shots of the boy named Eli and an identical twin, presumed to be a young Solid Snake and Liquid Snake from the Les Enfants Terribles program that cloned Big Boss.

Most of the trailer seems to be cinematics taken from the game, but that doesn’t make it any less beautiful or riveting. I love the touch of having the entire trailer narrated by off-screen characters while speaking of language, speech, words and dialect.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be released on September 1st for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. Below is the press release Konami sent after the trailer was released.
