Konami has released the full trailer for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain that Hideo Kojima unveiled this morning at the Game Developers Conference. Set to the strains of Garbage’s “Not Your Kind of People,” the trailer confirms that Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes isn’t a separate game. Instead, that game appears to have been combined with The Phantom Pain to form Metal Gear Solid V.
So we started with two games (Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid 5). Then we added a third game that seemed to share some similarities with the Metal Gear series, but which was said to be an original game (The Phantom Pain). Then comes the big twist where it was revealed that all three were the same game all along. That’s almost as topsy-turvy as the plot to your average Metal Gear Solid game.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is in development for the PS3 and Xbox 360. It doesn’t currently have a release date, but who knows what will happen next.
