New Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Video Sees Hideo Kojima Bid The Series Farewell

A new video for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was released the other day, but it’s neither new gameplay or an accolades trailer. Rather, it’s a rather somber video focusing on Metal Gear series creator Hideo Kojima, as he and other reflect on The Phantom Pain and the series as a whole before Kojima says farewell to the series he built. Yeah, better bring some tissues for this one.

The 10 minute video, which you can check out below, various people who worked on the game, including composer Justin Burnett and voice actors Robin Atkins Downes and Troy Baker, who each voiced Miller and Ocelot respectively. Finally, towards the end of the video, Kojima himself talks about a superfan of the series, who had recently passed away before the game was completed. Kojima emphasized that his goal as a designer was to always make a game that would make players happy and thanked the fans for all the years of support they have given him.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is available now for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.
