Konami accidentally publishes MGSV: The Phantom Pain E3 2014 trailer early

Konami accidentally published the Japanese Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain trailer earlier than planned. It has since been removed, but of course the cat’s out of the bag now. Copies of the video are popping up everywhere, and Konami seems to be on a mission to have them all taken down. Sites that posted the trailer are also requested to remove the trailer.

Update: It appears that the English version can be found on the web as well.

Metal Gear Informer will post the trailer once it’s officially out, which probably shouldn’t be long now. Just a little more patience…

    Oh. My. God. Ness. Seen the trailer. I just… Oh my.

    By the way, first time posting here. I’ve been YEARS reading you all, sice this site started. Congrats to you all, especially Nyxus. It’s good being a Metal Gear fan, isn’t it? 🙂

    • John Doe

      Absolutely the same here, man. Kudos!

      And I’ve watched the trailer like dozen times but still can’t help admiring it. So strong. It will rule E3, mark my words.

    • BigBoss_88

      Same here my friend :D, another newbie but long time reader. Yes the trailer was incredible :D. I think I will spend rest of the year watching it every day, like last year’s trailer ^_^ .

    • Sure is good! And welcome!

      • jgg

        guys in the trailer quiet kills 3 soldiers in a very violent way.

        • jgg

          eli aka liquid fights big boss .

  • Schmojima

    hahaha, nice pic there! xD
    Wise choice, the right thing to do, I guess.

    naturally, I have watched the trailer 4 times now and I’m just so so stunned. frickin’ masterpiece!
    Can’t really say much about it, still sorting out my thoughts and trying to understand some difficult scenes…

  • Golgari

    I saw a trailer and it is the best trailer so far with fantastic music. I watched it a lot

    But HOW can you screw up E3 trailer with that leak? How?
    http://kotaku.com/metal-gear-solid-vs-e3-trailer-isnt-waiting-for-e3-1587962381 Kotaku reports that Konami screwed with trans-Pacific dates. How can you screw with something like that? Lol. Someone is fired today at Konami.

    • Yes, this isn’t even the first time. Remember Metal Gear Rising, when we got the first trailer for the new build by Platinum Games? Was also leaked in advance. And yes, how can this happen with something this big? Good question.

  • I bet fiddles are really getting played up in Koji Pro right about now.

    coming 1984…. 9/8/14?????? 8/9/14??????????

    • John Doe

      Well, it would be amazing, and I know it’s a widespread theory, but this just doesn’t make sense. If you want to cypher a date here it would be 19.8.4 which is 19.8.2004. So it’s probably just Kojima trolling us :/

  • Schmojima

    btw. what does BB say at the very end of the trailer? I sadly have trouble understanding it…. ;__;

    • Here is a rough translation by a NeoGAF user: http://neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=115398850&postcount=701

    • Raymondus

      I guess unless you are japanesse you won’t undesrtand it… :/

      • Schmojima

        I actually saw the japanese trailer first and then – to my surprise – the english one…and even there I couldn’t really understand bb. And thx nyxus for the translation!

        • Raymondus

          Really? The english too? You know if it’s still out there?

          • Schmojima

            sadly, no. (not that I’m aware of)

      • Schmojima

        hahaha, just wanted to post the link to the english trailer I just re-discovered, but It got pulled this very second…lets just wait a bit longer… 😀

        • Raymondus

          Man… Do not play with my feelings… :`(

          • Schmojima

            sry, bro! n_~

      One thing I know is I’ll be turning on subtitles. I guess Keifer liked that slurred line delivery and ran with it.

  • cajgowich

    MGS REX :))) Yess KOJIMA. we wanna see young Solid an Liquid 🙂

    • Invader_skoodge

      I knew Eli was going to be feisty. I’m already looking forward to his interaction with Big Boss.


    You guys, that can’t wait, are going to watch it anyway. I couldn’t wait! Also, MASSIVE-somewhat spoiler at the very end minute (or at least I think it is). Enjoy!

    • John Doe

      Oops, already deleted…

    • Schmojima

      yes, they pulled it…t’was the exact same link i just wanted to post…

    • Project Siren

      Watch it here (Persian site): http://www.aparat.com/v/wnJPZ

    • Cobra Commander

      What’s the spoiler that you were referring to?
      I didn’t really notice anything major that sheds new light on anything.

  • Zero

    Amazing trailer. ‘Coming 1984’ 19.8.14 Release?? That would be sick though

    • Schmojima

      or 4.8.19 ….or in 22 months (which is the digit sum) or 19+84=103=10.3. (2015)
      or 84-19=65, which could point to a release in may next year…

      but this is obviously speculation at its finest. ;DD

      • Zero

        I know right haha the funny thing is 19/8/14 is a tuesday 😛

        The hype is real though, can’t wait

    • BigBoss_88

      Amazing trailer yeah and that release date would be fantastic lol ;D… Whatever it will be, it’s not coming fast enough o_o.

    • Invader_skoodge

      It might be 9.8.14 = 1 9/8 4

  • Schmojima
    • Raymondus

      GOTCHA THIS TIME!! Thanks a lot!! 😉

      • Schmojima

        had a guilty conscience ;D

      • Eric Otness

        Question: How do I download the trailer?

  • ZenshinHD

    Looks amazing. I saw the English trailer here: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1yxf6k_metal-gear-solid-v-the-phantom-pain-e3-2014-trailer_videogames – Not sure if we are allowed links here…

  • Hellrasinbrasin

    …Hurd as a Diamond ready to Cut at will just to see that Demo… KOJIMAaaaa.

  • XIFF-5

    I guess Kojima will kill whoever uploaded it , lol.
    An stupid mistake like this by the staff shouldn’t be forgiven…
    But I fucking liked the trailer soooooooo much! DAMMM! CANT WAIT!

  • Oscar Zulu

    Thanks, Internet! WOOHOO

  • Janeo

    Well I found the trailer in English and it is amazing my heart is just pounding so fast kojima is the master of trailers. I have even more questions now so many interesting things, what the hell is big boss doing with skullface looks like he’s the one pointing there rage toward cipher so what does that mean for chico because he knows what skullface did. Well I’m not gonna be able to sleep tonight

  • VicBoss

    Kojima said that will be able to understand a little bit more what happened to BigBoss at the end of GZ. Or, with this new trailer, I don’t think we are able to understang something new about it.

    However, the trailer is just amazing, and i’m happy to see a BigBoss like that. Not just a spectator of the revenge, like we saw at the E3 trailer of next year. But now, he is the leader, and he will be without any mercy.

  • Hellrasinbrasin

    Now if they could just inadvertently release the 30 Minute Demo online my day will be complete

  • thetrooper1989

    this website is awesome. Welcome

  • George Sears

    What hell is the horn all about? I’m dying to know. Hype increased.

  • BigBoss_88

    Hello everyone, first time posting here ;). I wanna say thanks to all you, especially Nyxus for doing amazing job! It’s relaly nice to have a site completely dedicated to MGS fans :D. I’ve been a fan of MGS since MGS1. Also
    been reading Informer too for a long time and I thought it’s my
    responsibility to make user here too ;D.

    Anyway, I found out about this trailer leak few hours ago and I tried to resist and wait for E3 tomorrow…but couldn’t ’cause of super-hype. All I can say is the trailer is really AMAZING, so emotional. I mean like oh my god… it made me cry. I think I’m at loss of words…because it was so beautiful! Kojima-sensei picked the perfect song for it ;), definitely will be the best trailer of E3 !

    • Janeo

      It really is amazing I’m hoping kojima makes a last minute decision to put the gameplay online since the trailer got out early. I have been watching it over and over it’s just so emotional every time and so many little hints.

    • Welcome to the site!

      • BigBoss_88

        Thank you 😀 !

  • Cobra Commander

    WOW, just WOW!
    I hope the music from trailers this far will be in game, Garbage Not-Your Kind Of People, The song from the latest trailer- Nuclear something by David something?.
    Wasn’t there Bowie’s 1984 also? Of course there is the Donna Burke stuff too, all the music has just been epic! (How does someone who Isn’t fluent in English pic some great English songs? Does Kojima understand English, but just can’t speak it fluently?) I have a hard time understanding Kojima’s English translations all the time.
    I also spotted something- When BB is covered in blood screaming with smoldering remains all around him, the horn in is head looks really long. I am guessing he got it then after some kind of bomb blast or something. He had his metal arm already so I believe BB gets the horn after being in the hospital. I.E. the supposed helicopter crash or what put BB in a coma didn’t put the shrapnel in his head.
    I also liked the ash symbolizing war paint, and the bloody BB reminds me of Apocalypse Now.

    • BigBoss_88

      I can’t believe I didn’t know the song used in the trailer before…it’s amazing and fits with the emotional trailer perfectly :). I must say that Kojima-sensei has a great taste in music. The new song is Nuclear by Mike Oldfield. Kojima said that he wanted to start Ground Zeroes with David Bowie’s Diamond Dogs-song, but ended up choosing Here’s To You. I’m sure we will see a lot of great songs in TPP 😀 !

    • prothy

      Yes, Apocalypse Now, everything reminds me of Apocalypse Now…

  • Cobra Commander

    I also found a site with both English & Japanese trailers still up.
    I you have a PS3 you can also download them too.

    P.S. Watch out for the 5:19 second one, it’s just a jerk trying to “Rick Roll” people.
    The Japanese version has a 720 download, but I could only find the English in 480.
    Hurry up before those get zapped, GOOD LUCK!

  • Guest

    Here is english trailer if someone wanna see and hear Kiefer ;). Or if you have incredible strong control over your urges, wait for tomorrow ;).

    • prothy


  • BigBoss_88

    Um silly question lol, is it allowed to post video links here? I have the english trailer link for youtube if anyone is interested :P.

    • Yeah you can post them. They just won’t be posted in the article itself until the official release (they are being pulled constantly anyway, so it’s not much use to put them in the article).

      • BigBoss_88

        Oh okey ;), thanks.

  • Tetsuo

    That trailer was mindblowing!
    I feel sry for Kojima,this trailer was meant for E3 🙁

    • Invader_skoodge

      This trailer IS still meant for E3. Just because it’s out, it doesn’t mean it isn’t going to be as awesome at the conference. I’m sure some people attending are really holding out till the actual release. I mean we don’t get to go.

  • Batzi

    No words can describe my excitement and hype after seeing that beautiful amazing trailer! Anyone noticed how beautiful the graphics are? That is a cross-gen game and Kojima is blowing my mind!!! 0_o

    I have a lot to say about the scenes I saw. I will save my analysis and theories for later since I am at work and I am pumped to go back home and start my real day.

    PS: Going to the movie theater here in Montreal to watch Sony’s press conference LIVE! Anyone going from Montreal?

  • prothy
    • prothy

      Yes it is grab fast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s english!!!

  • Shadow Rex

    Hmmm… Coming 1984, 1984 is a track off of David Bowie’s Diamond Dogs album.

    • Nekkedsnake

      i’m guessing that the 1984 timestamp is just Kojima saying that the events of TPP will be happening in 1984. Tho some of the other theories are super exciting and would annihilate any other games happening this year!

  • CrazyGuy207

    Later as in later today?

    • You mean the official release of the trailer? It’s unclear, could be today during one of the conferences or tomorrow.

  • Still no MGO? :c

  • Solidfox

    “We’ll make diamonds from their ashes…take them into battle with us” maybe it’s related to this? >>> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memorial_diamond

    • prothy


  • Zven

    love the waiting Snake picture. I’ll watch it once it’s on this site, I can wait a bit more.

  • Devlin Caudill

    Damn it’s great and you’re right it will rule E3 I’ve watched it 20 times the music the footage it’s perfect I never thought a trailer could beat last years but I was sorely mistaken best I’ve ever seen for any game ever my god it’s so awesome can’t wait to play.

  • Cx1911

    U think it will be released on august or september ? and Wtf eli is doing at the base or skullface i am very curious to learn

  • LukesAlike

    Spoilz for us? I WILL WAIT!

  • Guest

    If there is one thing to take away from the trailer, it’s this. (Non-spoiler)

  • Douglas

    1984 wasn’t the year that Big Boss awakens from his nine year coma?

    • Solidfox


  • Datguy8923

    The leaked trailer…Words just cannot describe it…Ef your Halo Microsoft, give me that Big Boss.

  • No Place For Hayter

    Wow, If I were Kojima I would kill konami. I’m gonna wait until it is officially released before I watch it, just a little more time now, lol.

  • PrinceHeir

    Saw the trailer and wow just wow!!!

    I’m sure people can watch it on other sites like dailymotion.

    And i freaking knew it it could only be leak by Kojima himself because the trailer are always made by him(well the JPN ones, but it get’s voiced by ENG anyways) and it’s stored in his computer.

    Now i await for the gameplay one!!!

  • mikeyyytexas

    THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING!!!!! How do you go on living after watching that… so many questions like the rest of y’all… I too was going to wait till tomorrow and I’m really glad I didn’t… How do you go about playing GZ without thinking of TPP UGHHHH THE HYPE IS REAL! CAN’T WAIT!!!!!

  • PrinceHeir

    For those who really REALLY can’t wait.

    You can now download the trailers both in English and Japanese!!!





    At least you could play this on your computer and watch it higher quality than the youtube ones.

    Good stuff either way!!

  • Omnipal

    or you can watch online directly here

          new screens btw.

  • well damn son, i was away from the internet since last tuesday, and look at all the stuff i was missing, don’t know where to start, so many great info, wow. But i gotta point out *SMALLSPOILER* that the choice of mike oldfield for the trailer music was amazing, i wasn’t expecting that at all i love oldfield’s music and even though the latest album isn’t one of my favorites that one song was one of the highlights i hope that it appears on the game though i doubt it since it is a modern song

  • RoderickThe13

    I saw that the trailer had been posted in the morning, but just now I managed to watch it. My heart’s still pounding with excitement, what an amazing trailer.

  • Invader_skoodge

    I’m confused. Is this from the 30 min. demo? Kojima said it’s from the Konami booth.


    • PrinceHeir

      Tbh it looks like a scene from the Red Band Trailer.

      • Invader_skoodge

        It’s from the gameplay demo. Nyxus just made a new post.

      • Kaizen

        No. That particular screen wasn’t in the trailer. In the Green/Red Band trailer, Ocelot was never shown to be facing Big Boss on opposite directions. I’m sure it’s gameplay, but I don’t know if it’s the actual 30-minute gameplay presentation that Kojima wants to exclusively show to the press, since it’s being shown at the Konami’s booth.

  • Neo Kobe Pizza

    Just saw the trailer… Woah(HOOOOOOO)

    I can’t say this for sure, but all those corpses in the first minute or so of the trailer look like child soldiers. A pretty grim trailer overall, but sooo good!

  • Anthony Filipas

    You can download the 1080p version, with English audio here: http://pastebin.com/fBCgCieW


    • No Place For Hayter

      I watched the trailer at Sony’s E3, then I figured I would watch the leaked version, and I’m glad I did, wow Sony’s E3 version was missing some great stuff, thanks for this version. There is about a million really cool and awesome points in the trailer I would like to talk about but I will save it for an article about the trailer.

  • William of Orange

    Remember kids, never be game over! (??)

  • thetrooper1989

    The tone and overall violence made me really uncomfortable (in a good way), I feel like scared watching Big Boss’s descent into madnesss I wish we could see the gameplay demo 🙁

  • Josue Quintana

    There Was a Trailer link in the E3 Website and the link is for Gamespot i think you can put this as Official


  • ORB1T4L

    “Accidentally” lol there’s no accidents with Kojima…
