Kojima: some parts of The Phantom Pain are 100% complete

In an interview with the Japanese gaming magazine Dengeki PlayStation, Hideo Kojima talked a bit about Metal Gear Solid V.

Kojima said some parts of The Phantom Pain are already 100% complete. Other parts however still need a lot of work.

Another subject discussed was the implementation of smartphones. These devices will be able to display scores, the radar and the map, among other stuff. According to Kojima it will be very useful, and offer a new gaming experience.

Kojima also emphasized that the ‘S’ in the Ground Zeroes title is significant: it is plural because the events in the game not only affect Big Boss, but other characters as well, such as Kaz. Ground Zeroes will be the spark that causes multiple big changes.

    His face expression looks alot like The Bosses face, i think its means thats Big Boss finally come at her level of thinking about things in life.

    awesome :D

    S? does this mean we will see multiple “Snakes”?? :)

    i wonder if they will show how Big Boss finds out that he had clones already born and will probably had some dispute between Miller since he hid the project from him.

    i think at the end of the game Big Boss and Miller will part ways(unless they retcon that) though Miller did come back as a instructor for foxhound so i wonder if Big Boss will still have some disputes from him.

    tbh i think MGSV is the perfect game to set up for the eventual MSX remakes. i don’t mind the retcons since the MSX games are already vast different from the other games.

    Miller can be flexible. he can either stick with Big Boss or part ways.

    in any case this game is still long ways to go so i don’t mind the speculations ^^

      By “S”, he means ZeroeS. I see a lot of people calling the game Ground Zero. It’s wrong. It’s Ground Zeroes. That’s why Kojima emphasizes on the “S”.
