Am I reading too much into the Gamescom 2015 Metal Gear Solid V trailer?

Gamescom has led to a ton of trailer drops. It’s that wonderful time when almost everyone is satisfied by some new announcement about their favourite game or franchise. Metal Gear Solid V is no exception, giving us an all new trailer ahead of the game’s release next month. But I’m finding some interesting double meanings, and I don’t think I’m alone.

Here is the full trailer showing off the end of an era.

End of an era? Need to go alone? Finding another way? Is Kojima Snake, and are we seeing his journey to going out on his own? Or am I just deluded and need to stop reading into things? Either way, it’s a pretty nice trailer; it’s great to see more gameplay and the more serious side of the game. The franchise is so weird and convoluted, but sometimes it comes together gloriously.

Meanwhile, this wasn’t the only trailer that released for the game. NVIDIA also has a trailer out with full 4k, 60fps glory to show off why you should be a PC master race gamer. Also, it stars Quiet, so it’s instantly better. Although it does creep me out a bit – it’s not new, but it is made more pretty, so I’m sure that’s what the PC gamers want to see, right?

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One on 1 September. It also marks the last partnership between Kojima and Konami. Is it really the end of an era, or the start of a new one?

    Hideo Kojima is a legend amongst us in his battlefields!! He will forever be Metal Gear Solid to our generation…

    I want this game so bad, but I want the money to go toward Kojima productions, NOT Konami! Is there a way for me to post or EFT the money to Kojima productions directly??? ๐Ÿ˜‰

      That’s exactly how I feel about EA. I want the money to go to the devs not them.

      No such thing as Kojima Productions. Its called Number 8 production department. Kojima has already been paid out and will not collect any royalties.

    I am not giving a penny to Konami and neither should you.

      Agreed. I don’t need my snake chicks covered in blood either. This franchise is dated for me…

        Old school Japanese work ethics for oldschool Japanese Otaku fans. It has dated in the west. It was cool back in the day considering it was the only franchise dealing with Adult story telling back in the 90s.

    I wish I owned a huge dev company that had enough money to buy Kojima’s I.P’s like Zone of the Enders & MGS Revengeance & carry on their legacy proudly. Anyhow this game will keep me away from friends family & loved ones for a long long time. I can tell….. Arigato Kojima san….

    Well, sort of like the varsity textbook my wife showed me years ago, that Shakespeare last play was the tempest. Because some character said goodbye to the island and they started on from there making, in my opinion, leaps of logic.

    However, I have seen some dissertations on the viewpoint of the reader and how that changes things. so, feel free to read whatever you want from a text, a game, a piece of art, a anything.
