Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain to appear at Taipei Game Show 2015

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be present at the Taipei Game Show later this month. The event will take place at the Taipei World Trade Center in Taiwan. According to the schedule, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be presented at January 31st, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM (Taiwan time).

MGSV-TPP-E3-2014-Screen-Sunset

It’s not quite clear yet what the show will entail, but apparently Hideo Kojima himself will be present. It will most likely be another gameplay demonstration. In any case, to avoid disappointment you probably shouldn’t expect any major announcements at the event.

Update: According to the official MGS Facebook for Asia there will be new information:

“HIDEO KOJIMA will attend Taipei Game Show this year! Will have a stage event at SCE booth starting from 1pm on Jan 31st.It’s been 4 years since his last visit, but he’s back to announce new information for the upcoming highly demanded title MGSV:TPP! Don’t miss it!”

  • Cassio

    Nice hoping to see a release date now.

    • If you want to be safe don’t expect it.

      • Big_Boss88

        Yeah true. I mean i was really expecting to see a release date, like many others at VGA in Vegas, because even Kiefer Sutherland was there. But no we didn’t hear anything about that, so it seems never know what comes in game event. We might see some good info in Taipei, who knows :).

        But still gonna be exciting!!!

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          its kojima.anything can be expected.

  • Big_Boss88

    THE HYPE IS REAL! I know we get release date, although I’m prepared for the shock if we don’t get it, but I think we will :P!

    • Mini gear

      If we still don’t get one then Kojima is going overboard with the wait hype :p

  • Golgari

    I think something big will be there if Hideo Kojima is going to present the demo.

    • Big_Boss88

      Something nuclearly big?

      • Mini gear

        A trailer and release date would be great

        • Big_Boss88

          Yeah it would be excellent XD ! I mean that mixing image he posted some time ago had a nice timing, when this game event is coming up. Maybe it means that he was working on some trailer to show us etc. I dunno.

          First time I’m hearing of Taipei Game Show I think, but it seems we gonna see some good games there.

          • Mr.Pony

            C’mon Kojima “Hurt me more!” with another waiting game

          • Mini gear

            Yeah I’m excited about this show. I’ve never heard about it either :p

      • Shalashaska Has Landed

        This totally looked like Peace Walker’s Paradise trailer lol. I almost anticipated hearing Richard Doyle talk in the beginning about Nuclear deterrence.

        • César H. Sandoval

          Man, I want Doyle as BB again, he was amazing in MGS4 and that PW trailer.

  • Raymondius

    Why this hype? I’ll tell you why. YOU ENJOY ALL THE WAITING, THAT’S WHY!

    • Cipher

      True
      I’m gonna miss those days when it arrives
      :((

      • Raymondius

        Then when you remember them, you will puke in the middle of the battlefield, hearing my voice in your mind.

    • Schmojima

      I’d like to quote myself on this, even if it’s a real strange thing to do… 😀

      ”In german we have a word for it: “Vorfreude” – it means a “thrill of anticipation” or “pleasant anticipation” but this really is kinda to much, u know what I mean?

      The release date could be 11 months from now, I don’t care….but we need this release date to have “Vorfreude” again!! Not this blurry kinda feeling of uncertainty….“

      • jack_coban

        Richtig 🙂

        • Schmojima

          Haha, nice! :DD

          • jack_coban

            I’m from Düsseldorf ^^ (sry for being offtopic)

          • Schmojima

            hahaha, are you serious? Me too, no kiddin’

            Edit: nur so aus Neugier: welcher Stadtteil? Die Welt ist wirklich verdammt klein!
            Sorry with the offtopic!

          • Theo Cevallos

            funny how mgs and Nyxus bring people together 🙂

          • jack_coban

            Hahaha, no way! Stadttteil: Friedrichstadt. Selbst?

            Is there a PN function for Disqus? Couldn’t find one…

          • Shalashaska

            Mgsolid fans are universal. I can bet you that if we ever find aliens, They’ll have already played this game. It can be the reason our species’s make Alliance! 😀

          • jack_coban

            True 😀

            Well, we just figured out that we literally live a five-minute-walk away from each other. ^^

          • Shalashaska

            hahaha awesome now you guys can celebrate the Release of Mgs V…at Your own houses, thru a locked door alone! hehe come on, lets be honest, we all know that when this releases.. we shall have forgotten our friends and we shall lock ourselves in a room and play till we collapse of tiredness !

          • Schmojima

            Unterbilk! ^-^
            Is there really no pn function on disqus?!

          • jack_coban

            You have to be kidding me! 😀

            Okay, this is really cool. Do you have FB or somethin’? I mean I can’t for the life of me figure out how to PN you on Disqus (or more like “Disqust”).

          • Schmojima

            I just registered in the mgi forum here, schreib mir doch da einfach mal ne pn! Findest mich auch unter schmojima. Je suis Tobias btw. 😀

            (Dann müssen wir nicht unbedingt hier persönliches austauschen.)

          • Schmojima

            Btw. Sorry guys for the german jibberish, will stick to good ol’ english.

          • jack_coban

            Dude, I couldn’t find your profile. But I posted in the “Unofficial I’m new thread”. You can find me there.

          • Schmojima

            I messaged you a pm on the forum here! 😀
            sent you my profile; just answer there, i guess.

      • Raymondius

        Woah, nice info, I appreciate it!

        You know, maybe you’re right. If we get the release date the hype will emerge again. But if we really have to wait that long, I think I would prefer to wait for the release date a bit more.

        We still have all the saga to replay while this phantom pain end, so let’s vorfreude again, this will be epic! 😉

    • César H. Sandoval

      *Pukes
      *Stress bar decreases by 50%

    • Shalashaska

      We dont enjoy the wait.. its like knowing youre gonna get amazing cake but have to wait half a year to do so.. it sadness me :'(
      As for the Hype train.. i’ll hold on hopes for the day but wont be surpsied if All kojima does is= “Did you rike it ?’ Trollololololololol CYA SOOOONNNN!”

    • Toni Ymeri

      There’s a waiter inside you!

  • Shalashaska Has Landed

    I definitely think a trailer is imminent. Whether it’s gameplay or cutscene is to be determined. All of his recent updates with new TPP photos and his “keyboard editing” photo on Twitter suggests this. It’s got that E3 preparation stank all over it.

  • Andrea Feletti

    i hope we get a release date but I don’t really expect it that much

  • Cipher

    they might announce the release date, or at least give us another trailer that raises the hype up to the roof : )

    • Schmojima

      can’t take another trailer. I mean, I would enjoy the hell out of it, but Kojima can’t be serious with all the trailers and teasers and twitter pics and small revelations (chicken cap) et cetera…

      this is getting kinda out of hand, don’t you think?

      this has to end, man. ; _ ;
      In german we have a word for it: “Vorfreude” – it means a “thrill of anticipation” or “pleasant anticipation” but this really is kinda to much, u know what I mean?

      The release date could be 11 months from now, I don’t care….but we need this release date to have “Vorfreude” again!! Not this blurry kinda feeling of uncertainty….

  • Altaim

    The hype train is leaving… COME ON BOOOOOAAARRRRDDDDDD NOOOOWWWWWWWW

  • Venom_Sina

    I don’t think they announce the release date.It’s not a major game event and the presentation of MGSV is only 1 hour!!!So probably we’ll see a gameplay demo from Gamescom’14 or TGS’14(which we already saw),but this time it’s localized for native people.Then Probably Kojima-san jumps out and say:”Hey!!!We localized the game to Traditional Chinese for you!!!DID YOU RIKE IT?”and the show will be over!!!
    Thanks Nyxus,for the news!!!

  • bet they announce a new korean-themed K-POP hat or something, maybe an alternate african mission taking a different route mostly in the night, but not expect anything else, like those people who actually watched the kojima station thing instead to been with their families in Christmas… they deserved their chicken hat announcements after kojima gave freebies to his staff for 3 hours…

  • Diamond Fox

    the question is what they gonna show we already have a lot INFO about TPP !! MORE INFO IS JUST SPOILER FOR US.

  • thetrooper1989

    Nyxus, thank you so much for keeping us MGS die hard up to date. I’ve got to admit, as painful as the wait for MGS V:TPP has been, its been pretty fun being in misery with this community 🙂

    • uya333

      you´r damn right!

    • Big_Boss88

      Yes I agree :D, I’ve loved all the discussions with everyone!

  • jack_coban

    One whole hour plus Kojima will be present. I call new trailer and african jungle gameplay with different approach. Maybe some new goofs like the chicken-hat. No release date. Nothing from KojiPro L.A…

  • Guest

    When I think I’m ready to let it go. The Hype Train comes back to town.

  • Sn4ke_911

    Troy Baker (Ocelot) just said on the KindaFunnyGames twitch livestream: “Skyrim looks like a child’s plaything next to MGSV”

    • Mr.Pony

      Everything looks a plaything when you play as a badass-one eyed warrior-one man army-daemon who has an attack dog and wears a chicken cap while riding a horse in the middle of Afghanistan killing russian soldiers

      • Schmojima

        Well said. You are so right.

    • jack_coban

      Is Skyrim big? I don’t know…

      • Shalashaska

        Trust me. Skyrim is easily 15-25 times the size of ground zeroes.
        Tons of gameplay and tons of quests.locations/npcs etc.. ALOT. If it can make Skyrim look like a kid.. I can Finally understand the ACTUAL Scope of the game. COLOSSAL would be an appropriate word.

    • Sn4ke_911

      Troy Baker: “MGSV may be the biggest game I’ve ever seen.”

    • Sn4ke_911
      • What time exactly?

        • Sn4ke_911

          He starts talking about MGSV at around 1:08:20

    • César H. Sandoval

      “The next Skyrim” or “The Skyrim killer” are mostly buzzwords when it comes to videogame marketing nowadays…

      But if someone can actually do it for real, you can bet your ass that is Hideo Kojima 🙂

    • Sn4ke_911
      • Wrote a post about the interview, thanks for the heads-up!

      • Big_Boss88

        Thank you for sharing :)!

  • ElAlca

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIf4bgVPvMY This is a trailer that I made some time ago, hope you guys like it! And let’s pray for a release date. xD

    • Big_Boss88

      Very good!

      • ElAlca

        Thanks!

  • Venom_Snake_BB

    I think we get a release date with a trailer and extra things like Chicken cap and different Cardboard Boxes.And no Gameplay.

  • Cesare Di Maio

    Call in Morpho, a HypeHelicopter is better than a HypeTrain

  • gerber

    I don’t really expect a release date anymore, when it comes out it comes out. But I have to admit that I don’t really want anymore trailers and gameplay presentations. It is already more than enough! Leave something for us to discover on our own while playing through the game Kojima

    • Big_Boss88

      I kinda agree with ya, got so many trailers and demos already. But I still know that I can’t resist watching it ;D…

  • Icosikaidigon

    It’s Taiwan? Don’t get your hopes up.

    • Andrea Feletti

      Same level as Igromir

  • Cesare Di Maio

    All on board!!! to Hype and beyond!

    • Invader_skoodge

      “This is Morpho. On station at H.Z. (Hype Zone)” XD

      “GET TO THE CHOPPA”

    • Mini gear

      You found the files for it?

      • Cesare Di Maio

        nope, just use the glitch to get outside the base, and you’ll see the heli parked in there (screenshot from PS4)

        • Mini gear

          How do you do that?

  • MrVux007

    One of the best things about MGS…..its time you wait for the game to release….so much hype,so much rage,so much sadness,crazy theories and good theories…………………and then you have chicken caps

  • Smitty

    I can only hope for a release date.

  • Sn4ke_911

    When the other guy asks Troy about David Hayter and the huge blacklash around it bla bla…. he says “reserve judgement until you actually play the game” ….he continues “even being a Metal Gear fan coming into this going wow that’s what you’re doing…”

    He’s clearly talking about the Hayter ruse.

    David Hayter is in MGSV and he will voice Solid Snake.

    • MichaelPayneV

      No, i don’t think so, but what i will never forgive Hayter for if he isn’t in MGSV is that he suddenly decided to announce his absence on April 1st, what the hell was in his head, couldn’t he have waited at least 1 day?

  • Shalashaska

    Who else KNOWS its trailer ! It IS! He teased it ! Perhaps it has gameplay too.. and hey, what better way to announce a date than at the end of a trailer ? Hopes Up! Fingers crossed! I am going to have tears in my eyes if he Releases it in march :’D

    • MichaelPayneV

      If is Gameplay, hopefully we get a Cold Setting, like the Hymallayas Mountains, they are close to Afganistan.

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        hindukush mts.

      • Shalashaska

        oh oh oh yes yes yes yes yes .. would make my wait so much easier ! 😀

  • Solid

    Maybe co-op gameplay ?

  • 合金装备

    Chinese version?

  • Sn4ke_911

    HYPE!

  • Javier Sosa

    If they show a release trailer I don’t want to see any new image. Just old scenes and a date. But I think that trailer is far away from us. In this show maybe they show the african gameplay with another approach or something online. Anyway, I stop being so anxious about this things. Thanks chicken hat.

  • Solid

    I asked and looks like no MGO at Taipei guys :

    https://twitter.com/MetalGearOnline/status/555436155508764672

  • Andrea Feletti

    A year ago kojima told they would have supported mgs in 10 gaming event before the release of TPP: E3, gamescom, Tgs, igromir, vga, tapei game show. Six events up to now. If what they do what they said, we have to wait september to finally play the game! I just hope the game releases before e3 2015..

    • Guest

      1. MGS 25th Event – 2012

    • Solid

      So…1. MGS 25th Anniversary Event 2012 – 2. VGA 2012 – 3. GDC 2013 – 4. E3 2013 – 5. E3 2014 – 6. Gamescom 2014 – 7. TokyoGamesShow 2014 – 8. VGA 2014 – 9. Taipei Game Show 2015 – 10. ???

    • vic boss

VGA 2014 – 10. taipei game show 2015 Could it finally be the light at the end of the tunnel? A release date? I personally won’t get my hopes too high.

      • Big_Boss88

        If Kojima really told that, then Taipei or GDC March 2nd could be the last. I don’t remember him saying that, but I can’t remember everything xD.

      • Andrea Feletti

        Mmmhm no actually he said that 10 event thing after the release of Gz in march 2014…so it’s 6 events up to now:
        1)E3 2014
        2)gamescom 2014
        3)tgs 2014
        4)igromir
        5)Vga
        6)tapei 2015

        So what’up next? Probably GDC in march and some minor events (at least i hope so…)

    • Big_Boss88

      I really hope it release before E3 too.

  • IrionDaRonin

    I’m not smoker, but i would smoke a Phantom Cigar till release day. 🙁

  • Toni Ymeri

    What do you think they will show? I’m hoping they show a snowy location although I know that won’t happen.

  • PrinceHeir

    Glad everyone in the whole world is gonna experience MGSV 🙂

    Companies should take notes on how to market their games properly.
