Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will support traditional Chinese

During the MGSV:TPP stage event at the Taipei Game Show, Kojima has confirmed Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will support traditional Chinese (subtitles and menus). This is a first for the series. A press release from Konami Asia states:

By popular demand, Traditional Chinese language support has been added to “MGSV: TPP” to bring a better METAL GEAR experience to the Asian players.

And yes, that was the announcement. Either way, here are some pictures of the event by Kojima and Ayako.


“Good morning! I’ll be at MGSV TPP stage event today at 1pm ‪@SCE‬ booth. See you soon!”


“MGSV items including DD Tshirts I wore at TGS last year are available at SCE booth in Taipei Game Show!”

    Maybe we get lucky and Rayden dies in mgrising 2

  • Big_Boss88

    Oh my Kojima-san is a true playa o_o, surrounded by them ladies.

    Good that it support many languages :). TPP will sell such huge amounts when it finally releases all over the world, with multiplatform release.
    Oh well, didn’t get much amazing news about TPP I guess (just woke up lol). My friends lets look forward to the next game show <3, whatever it might be. I have good feeling it will be GDC 😀 and see big things there.

    My slightly shocking reaction when reading last article after waking up.
    Although is good we don't see too much of TPP

    Was it moto hellogoto who said few days ago something good, "the key is not to get hyped too much" or something like that. That can be hard for MGS fans to do. Anyway it helps a bit, the reason why I slept through the event was 'cause I knew no RD will be given either.

    Life goes on…and the waiting my friends. Like the famous words used in Rocky movies: "NO PAIN NO GAIN!!!"

    • Andrea Feletti

      ADRIAAAN!! ;D

    • Edward Wokhands

      I give up waiting for the next game show. It’s happened like 3 times in a row now. Look forward to something and get nothing. Out of 3 game shows we’ve got one good trailer for MGO. So what were the other 2 for? I love MGS so, so much but the teasing of the fans has reached an absurd level.

      • Big_Boss88

        I just hope we get to see TPP in GDC, because then we might get it release for June. If not then E3 maybe and release late year. While both are fine to me, I still rather get it sooner hehe ;).

        • Edward Wokhands

          Oh god, if it’s E3 then I’ll literally cry. (-_________________________-)

        • Edward Wokhands

          By the way, when is GDC? March? Also is TGS November or earlier in the year?

          • GDC is on March 2-6 2015.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Thanks. I hope it releases June at the latest. Or actually the perfect Kojima move would be late March. I hope he does a Nintendo and announces it close to release.

  • PrinceHeir

    So if Rising 2 would star Frank Yager vs Cyborg Zombies. Kojima is even willing to write the story himself.

    That would be godly though!

    • Big_Boss88

      Yea agreed :D!

  • PrinceHeir
    • Big_Boss88

      Kojima gets all the women.

      • Mini gear

        and we get no tpp news

    • No Place For Hayter

      I hear bunny woman are popular but now with TPP I bet sheep girls will be all the rage. That being said I’d fulton them 😉

  • PrinceHeir

    I think we all should celebrate that we’re getting two of the best games in its respective genres.

    Best Stealth Game and Best Action Game? The Phantom Pain will be handled by Kojima himself and his team and Rising 2 is supposedly handled by Platinum Games. Two masters of its genre, and everyone is happy in all sides. Seriously what more could you ask for?

    • No Place For Hayter

      A release date (Sorry even though I’m more than ok with waiting all year I had to say it, lol)

  • Stormy Rain

    Mei Ling confirmed?

    Rising 2? OMG Mindblowing news if it’s true!!! I love Rising 1 <3

  • Emi

    There sure were a lot of racist slurs in the Twitch chat for the Taipei game show once the link was shared here. Way to represent yourselves, English-speaking MGS fans. :/

    • Who says they came from here? This is a decent and generally very friendly community. The link was shared on multiple English sites and forums.

      • Vegas

        I guess he said that out loud, not really refering to this specific site 😛

        • Well he implies it was a result of the link being posted ‘here’. Sounds like he means ‘here on this site’.

          • Vegas

            True, i did not paid enough attention. Sorry.

        • No Place For Hayter

          That was what I thought at first to but he says “once the link was shared here” meaning at was all cool until we joined the party…. A party in which I had to sleep through, 🙁

          • Big_Boss88

            Dont worry buddy, I slept too heh xD ! But I know ppl from this nice site dont say things like that, when chat everyday with you all ^_^

          • Vegas

            True, indeed… loved your nick xD

          • No Place For Hayter

            Thank you 🙂

            Funnily enough I think it was when I thought of it that I decided to finally create an account.

      • Edward Wokhands

        They all came from Kotaku and Polygon.

    • Big_Boss88

      Actually thousands of people if not more from different sites etc use that twitch channel, because it was maybe the only place available. If you honestly think people here do that kind of comments you’re very wrong. And what makes you think MGI users behaved like that?

      This is the friendliest MGS site I know :).

    • Venom_Sina

      No,that’s impossible.I absolutely sure that people here aren’t responsible for those comments.
      People here are the BEST.They are polite and very friendly.They don’t do such things.

    • Invader_skoodge

      That’s where I have to disagree with you. We may be big MGS fans here but we’re not the only mgs website on the internet. I don’t know how long you’ve been in this community but I can vouch for every person who’s commented on a regular basis since I signed up to be very nice and polite to other users. Even when they disagree they show respect. That’s why I joined this community in the first place. Rethink what you’re saying in your comment because it’s a big accusation.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Seriously? dude if there where any retards that followed that link from here they sure as hell aren’t the people who comment here, so while I see the message you are trying to convey, the crowd you want to reach and are talking about is none of us who are here and are commenting, and also saying that things got really bad when the link was shared here is simply an assumption and speculation on your part and I doubt it is entirely true, you seem to be jumping the gun a bit to soon with to little information on this one, if you know anything about the community here you know that we respect others and others opinions and that we don’t like trolls and or blatantly rude people.

      Aside from that part of your comment I doubt a twitch chat for a game show counts as representing the English fan-base of the MGS franchise, in all honesty what you saw there was the vocal minority and not the majority.

      With that aside I hope you stay long enough to see how friendly we are, I don’t know where you got those assumptions from but I hope that we can wash them away for you, howdy and welcome 🙂

  • ggfrench
    • Imaizumi said a while ago not to go by retailers’ dates. They are usually just placeholders.

    • Edward Wokhands

      Anything with “31st” on it from a retailer is usually a placeholder.

  • Kol Leqejza

    don’t know if it has to do anything with TPP but i thought i should share this, nonetheless. and yes: she’s already a demon, we know that

  • Kol Leqejza

    don’t know if it has to do anything with TPP but i thought i should share this, nonetheless. the description reads as follows: “something’s about to happen in shibuya…”

    and yes: she’s already a demon, we know that

    • Edward Wokhands

      Maybe an ignorant question but what is the significance of Shibuya?

  • Venom_Sina

    Kojima’s wife is going to kill him,that’s for sure!!!lol

    • Edward Wokhands

      That explains his “I’d better look unhappy” expressions.

  • Edward Wokhands

    I knew we’d hear nothing. It’s good for Chinese people I guess. But I bet even they didn’t really care. This is getting kind of absurd, the repeated teasing and then dropping of insignificant news.

    What happened to the release window news? At least those sheep pictures are awesome. Although Kojima look insanely awkward. Dear god those women are insanely hot.
