Kojima checking MGS Ground Zeroes English version and new interface photo

Today Kojima continued doing checks for Metal Gear Solid V. He also commented some more on the music importing feature, and how you can listen to music of your choice whenever you want to, and mentioning his own music of choice.


“Snake in GZ always carries “Walkman”. You can listen to any song you like with it during the mission or even on the helicopter. I think 007 ‘s theme of Bond (arranged by MOBY) & “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” theme fit well when sneaking in. I unexpectedly cried over Adel’s “Skyfall” when rescuing.”

This time Kojima checked the English version of the game as well.


“Checking & adjusting English version today.”

Kojima even continued checking while he was eating.

    I unexpectedly cried over Adel’s “Skyfall” when rescuing.” i can´t believe his passion, thats why the mgs games are so good, he put himself inside the skin of a fan and give us not what we want, but what we need!

  • William of Orange

    With all due respect, kojima-san,but I don’t think that the skyfall theme was composed to hit an emotional tone but was rather composed to sound as a orchestra of epicness.

    • Cyberlum

      Kaz rescue scene in E3 trailer was also very emotional and was accompanied by epic theme too, so idk what you mean…

      • William of Orange

        I see what you mean. Okay, I assume that you’re familiar with Adele’s skyfall, that song has a vast rythm from beginning to end and it never takes a different pace.”The sins of the father” however, had a small part that had a emotional tone by dropping the pace and sounding less bombastic in comparison to the overall song (as you can hear when Snake meets kaz in Afghanistan and bear in mind that the e3 trailer had two ost’s mixed together)

  • frankaster

    so we need Kiefer Sutherland?

    • Nyxus

      What do you mean?

      • William of Orange

        Well, it’s obvious! We need Kiefer Sutherland!

  • Ilja Y.

    listening to skyfall right now. Kojima has an amazing taste for good music

  • PrinceHeir

    i would put Video Game OST like Deus Ex HR, older MGS Games, AC!D Games, and even 24 OST if i can XD

  • William of Orange

    I love the concept behind the option, but I’m not planning to import soundtracks at all.
    Maybe I lack imagination or a good taste for music, but I’m sticking with mgs V ost’s.

    • Nyxus

      Same here. MGS always has amazing music.

      • William of Orange

        Maybe I’ll get my hands on the ost cd of mgs v, download the sins of the father on my phone,use the “WUWOOOH,WUWOOOH” as my ringtone,download the ringtone to my pc, place the ringtone on the mgs v disc and use Donna’s incredibly talented voice as my helicopter extraction sound.

        • Nyxus

          You should do ‘Words that kill’ when you receive a text message.

          • William of Orange

            Fine, but would you speak them to me?

      • William of Orange

        And maybe rika murunaka (not sure if I typed her name right), “can’t say goodbye to yesterday” is my favourite jazz song of all time.

  • Kaniebas

    I wonder how this will work on next-gen consoles (since apparently we cannot import mp3s on them)

    • Nyxus

      Maybe they will have patched that option in by then.

  • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

    I knew the music device was Walkman! I just knew there was no alternative! Interesting how he has that puppet hanging right in view of the picture, like it’s watching you. Those snacks he has look good- I want them. Can’t believe Kojima cried; be strong Kojima-san, we need you.

  • Sorahearts

    Kojima has a great taste of music, even better to what I listen to. But I like how we can import music when we are playing the game.

    Edit: If some of you wanted to know what kind of music that I normally listen to when I’m playing a game, it’s Electro, House, Dubstep, Metal, Electro House, Pop, Hip Hop and Electronic

    • William of Orange

      Same sort of issue over here! And that’s also the reason why I mentioned that I might lack some imagination. I mean, I wouldn’t even come up with the idea to play the jaws theme when snake starts to run.

      • Sorahearts

        I used to watch Jaws, that use to give me nightmares when I sleep lol

        • William of Orange

          Don’t you dare to import the exorcist theme on your mgs gz copy! I saw that movie as a kid and regan’s face still creeps the hell out of me to this day!

          • Sorahearts

            Don’t remind me of The Exorcist! That movie gives me a weak stomach and makes me want to go to the toilet. That was the scariest movie that I had watched

          • William of Orange

            I was terrified…… Just terrified…..

          • Sorahearts

            Me too. I wouldn’t go to sleep after watching it

  • William of Orange

    Listening to Caro Emerald: “I belong to you” at the moment.
    Heard this song, yesterday and it’s the dutch equivalent of ‘skyfall’.
    Amazing song that captures the James Bond flair!
