The Phantom Pain announced at Spike VGA's; A new Metal Gear?


A new game known as The Phantom Pain was last night announced at the Spike VGA's.

The long trailer, shows a man waking up from a coma in a hospital to discover that he has a hook for a hand, while he also finds it difficult to walk. The rest of the video is even more bizarre, although you can check it out for yourself below.

At the start of the video it's shown that the game is being made by Moby Dick Studio and this is were things get interesting. VG247 are speculating that Moby Dick Studio is actually linked to Metal Gear Solid's Kojima due to the fact that the studio, which is located in Stockholm, was founded by Joakim Mogre - apparently "Joakim" is an anagram of "Kojima" and Mogren is a football club in Montenegro which is where the opening of MGR: Revengeance takes place.

To mix add to this speculation, our very own E3 freelancer Alex Rubens said that "There are people in the VIP section of the Konami party wearing Phantom Pain/Moby Dick Studios t-shirts. They aren't talking about anything. And no, they aren't Swedish."

There are no details on the game, although Moby Dick's website does include PS3 and Xbox 360 logos in the footer. There is also no mention of a publisher, which makes things even more mysterious.

Snake? Snaaaake? SNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!? Nah. Don't care. But that's only because 2 annoyed me with the stupid amount of cut-scenes I never played another MGS again (aside from bits of the third one.) I think this is the...third or fourth MGS game coming soon I'm really feeling tired of Konami dropping other series for this tho. Get us a new Suikoden and Mystical Ninja. Then we'll talk Metal Gear

I wont complain to see another Metal Gear game, the footage I saw of Ground Zero a few months back was jaw dropping. I really want them to do a new remake of the original game with MGS4 controls. SNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!!! Bom bom da da dom...bom bom bom!

I wouldn't put it past Kojima to come up with something this crazy

I have a feeling this is MGSV as at the title screen there are a few stray lines which when put in a basic font, MGS V fits perfectly! :-)

It really does seem like a Metal gear solid game. In which other title would a giant whale eat a helicopter? Regardless, looks like a great game. Looking forward to hear more!
