Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain gets official name, platforms confirmed


Konami has announced the official name for Kojima Productions next title is Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

The game will be released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, although there has been no mention of next generation consoles at this time.

"Metal Gear Solid 4 has been a phenomenal success and one of the most highly regarded titles of all time. As such, we have very high expectations for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain," commented Shinji Hirano, President of Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH.

"We are confident that the FOX Engine will both expand and revolutionise the MGS series, and will provide the customary high-quality and immersive experiences that are associated with all titles produced by Kojima Productions."

You can see the first trailers here and here.

Can see it coming out around the time of GTA then :) Can't wait. Looks brilliant, and will hopefully match the previous ones.

Cut scene, 30 seconds of game play, cut scene, loading screen, cut scene, loading screen, 30 seconds of game play. MGS4 in a nutshell

Depends on how you look at it. it's got a cult following of very vocal people that do nothing but sing it's praises. First time around, it was good, but second playthrough I got bored. Even after they patched in trophies, I couldn't bring myself to put it in. A very marmite game, a very marmite series really! Multi plat huh? Interesting

Metal Gear Solid did have phenominal success. It was one of the best selling exclusive PS3 titles, increase the sales of the PS3, and raked in 10/10s across the board with it's lowest score being 8/10. I enjoyed it, enjoyed it enough to have spent the day playing it from waking up till I'd completed it sometime the next again day.

Won't be bothering with this, I forgot how bad MGS is until I played a bit of MGS3 the other day, I might have been able to tolerate the interminable cut scenes if the story wasn't so stupid.

They beat MGS1 as soon as they released MGS3.

That's blasphemy Gloria MGS3 is one of the best games ever

Indeed Saiyan. Indeed. MGS also has some of the best boss battles you'll ever come across.

That's a matter of opinion, I found it so boring I quickly abandoned it. Twin Snakes was good though ;)

Agreed, both are top quality.

Twin Snakes was a broken game. So much so in fact that Kojima has actually said he doesn't consider it part of the MGS series as canon (Last I heard he DOES count Portables Ops on PSP and MGS on GB Color just for some perspective there). It essentially took MGS2's gameplay and dumped it into a reskin of MGS1... no optimisation or alteration of any kind for the new gameplay improvements that engine offered. Then they not only made the cutscenes LONGER, they added in more of them... AND re-recorded the whole game with far worse voice acting. Anyone seriously saying it in any way compares to the original is kidding themselves.

What I gather from reading stuff (Not Played TTS) is the story is canon but the gameplay isn't

The January 2009 issue of Game Informer placed The Twin Snakes at #11 on their list of "Top 25 GameCube Games. Doesn't seem that bad to me, I predict Double Dash, Windwaker, Weegee Mansion, Sunshine and SSBM were in the top 10.

I don't know what was boring about Kevins post there.... I've never played TTS so can't comment on the canon of it.

Obviously the story is canon as it's the same, but Kojima doesn't consider the actual Twin Snakes game itself as part of the series, which is one of the reasons given for why it wasn't considered for HD upgrading at the time Kojima Productions were promoting the HD collection. Interesting to note MGS4 flashbacks used imagery from the PS1 game, not Twin Snakes as well, when you'd imagine TS would make more sense given the visual upgrade.

But MGS4 used the audio from TTS (I gathered the gameplay isn't considered canon cos in TTS Snake is apparently Neo)

i couldn't give a rats ass if is canon or not, it was the most fun for me.. Johno dont forget the Twilight princess! it came out on the cube too and was hard to find! so much so that i sold my copy last year with the guide for £113

Ye Twilight Princess was on the Gamecube but since it came at the very end of the lifecycle most people just say it's a Wii game and move on
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

Also Twilight Princess has nothing on The Wind Waker in my humble opinion

Twilight Princess was my all time favourite LoZ game, more so than OoT which has been released far too many times.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

and It doesn't help that the Gamecube version of Twilight Princess is as rare as Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance

Two completely different games but when you complete one you get a code so you can continue the story in the second game. Japan have the on their Eshop and we will get the some time this year (Hopefully)
