Kojima continues checking Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. On January 29 he posted a picture on his Twitter showing Snake taking a break in the helicopter along with his canine buddy, DD. It looks like this is DD’s spot, on the floor next to the seats reserved for human buddies.
“Standing by with DD over Africa.”
Here is a picture he posted the day before, on January 28, but there’s not much new to see there.
After that, Kojima was in Taiwan to attend to Taipei Game Show 2015, but now he’s back to checking the game. On February 4th he posted another picture, once again showing Snake in the chopper, carrying a rifle.
“Waiting in the helicopter up in the sky.”
Also notice the emblem on Snake’s prosthetic arm, it looks like some kind of variation on the Outer Heaven logo, but with electricity sparks. It may be indicative of this arm’s specific function (this yellow arm has a stun capability). So different arms could have different emblems.
Another picture from February 5th:
“Injured my right hand.”
“In order to increase the accuracy of sound direction, I am putting headphones onto myself.”
