Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain producer responds to “downgrade” criticism


With a little less than two months to go before the hotly anticipated release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Konami is probably glad the drama surrounding the title is coming to an end so they can get on with further imploding.

Kojima Productions recently showed a ton of gameplay footage at this year’s E3 Expo (an extended version of the “Free Infiltration” demo is available for viewing after the break), and while the overall reaction was positive, there has been one constant complaint. Several commenters online are saying the game doesn’t look as good as it once did. This has prompted Ken-ichiro Imaizumi, a Senior Producer at Konami Computer Entertainment Japan, to take to Twitter yesterday morning to defend the game.

If anything, Tweeting in defense of your game will only raise more awareness on the issue. I didn’t realize anyone thought the graphics looked downgraded from past iterations, but now that it’s been brought up, I can kind of see it. Or maybe that’s the placebo effect talking. Either way, Mr. Imaizumi has made some great Tweets since:

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be released for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on September 1. A PC release (via Steam) will follow on September 15.
