Hideo Kojima’s Releasing a Metal Gear Solid ‘Commemoration Video’ Next Week

Metal Gear Solid fans can look forward to seeing a “commemoration video” that will launch on the same day as the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain next week, Metal Gear Solid series creator Hideo Kojima has confirmed.

Kojima, whose involvement with the long-running MGS franchise will come to an end with The Phantom Pain’s release, revealed the news on Twitter, with the Japanese developer’s tweet also featuring an image of two well-known individuals appearing in the video: Kinda Funny’s Greg Miller and The Game Awards host Geoff Keighley.

The launch trailer for The Phantom Pain was revealed earlier this week, with Kojima directing and editing a video that celebrated the history of the franchise and also showcased never-before-seen footage from the highly anticipated open-world stealth title.

The Phantom Pain, which is the follow-up to Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, has protagonist Big Boss emerging from a nine-year coma, building a new mercenary organisation called “Diamond Dogs” and exacting revenge for the destruction of Militaires Sans Frontières (his previous group).

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will launch worldwide on September 1 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
