Promo video for the Wired MGSV: TPP watch shows Snake wearing it around his bionic wrist

Update 24/3: The promotional video has now been uploaded to Konami’s official Youtube channel. You can see the cutscene with Snake wearing the watch around his bionic arm at the start of the video. The soundtrack features a part of another version of Sins of the Father, different from the one we heard in the E3 2013 trailer.

As some people have pointed out, the game is still referred to as ‘A Hideo Kojima Game’ in this video, but keep in mind that it was made before this whole commotion.

At Baselworld 2015, a watch and jewelry show held in Switzerland, a promo video for the Metal Gear Solid V: Wired X The Phantom Pain watch was displayed. In it, we can see a brief new cutscene (it’s not certain this will be in the game, but it seems likely, although it could also have been made for this video only). In the scene Big Boss observes the watch, which has been attached to his bionic arm.

The watch will be released on September 3rd. For more information, go here.

Update: The Official Kojima Productions Twitter account has posted a couple of pictures of the watch on display at the event. The other two Wired Metal Gear watches (for Rising and for Ground Zeroes) are being shown off there as well.

          • It’s working again!

    • Shalashaska

      hahaha what if THIS was the trailer kojima was working on ? “You want a TPP trailer? No Take watch! and Rike it! im too busy”

  • Like 2 seconds in you can see construction on mother base actually happening(cranes moving n stuff) That’s awesome!

    • Gatsu

      Yeah :D, I want to see more of that awesome MB construction ;O …

      • Edward Wokhands

        So I wasn’t the only one who was looking at everything except the watch? Just trying to get a glimpse of the game. Staring at his spinning hand.

  • Will Hough

    I’m still desperate to get my hands on one of these but it’s so expensive to get one imported to the UK.

  • Invader_skoodge

    Was anybody else super freaked out with that creepy face when the screen went black?

    • mikeyyytexas

      me, I was lmfaoooo it kinda put me off and I had to look away from the screen.

    • Edward Wokhands

      Creepy? It was adorable!

    • glitchbomb

      YES!! lol!

  • no_fox

    Thats my city and i’m working on the Basel World Event! 😀 Have to search for it!

  • MichaelPayneV

    Dear Kojima Productions, if you see this comment, please fix those 2 things for GZ, just 2 minor things…apart from The Driving, but that’s another discussion.

    1. Make Snake able to slide down ladders, in GZ he just drops down ladders, he doesn’t slide down them, which is not a problem in GZ since there are only small ladders, but in TPP where we could find 50/100 meters ladders, that will be a problem, Snake dropping down Huge Ladders and losing health instead of sliding down them would be just “Dark Souls” level of Frustration, would be a HUGE Gameplay Flaw, so i beg you fix that.
    2. Snake should be able to aim a 1 Handed weapon while hanging or while climbing.

    That’s all i have to say regarding feedback from Ground Zeroes to The Phantom Pain, just those 2 minor things that would make a huge difference in good in Gameplay.

    Now dear Metal Gear Community, do you agree at least with the sliding down ladders, if yes then let Kojima Productions Community Manager Robert know that i’m not alsone…at least i hope so.

    • MrVux007

      sliding down the ladders requirement is not a major thing (IMO),but it would be welcoming…and judging from the TGS gameplay,i think they could implement the same system MGS3 had with climbing/shooting

      • MichaelPayneV

        Yes, but dropping down 50/100 meters ladders would be hilariously bad, especially if he doesn’t get any damage.

        I started thinking about being able to shoot while climbing or hanging while watching the TGS Demo, thinking that while climbing that cliff, that Snake should be able to use the Tranq Gun if spotted climbing.

        Another thing is not being able to use the Tranq while Driving in case you get spotted…but based on the Afganistan Demos looks like you able to use weapons while on Vehicles…at least while on horses.

        • Solidfox64

          Yeah, but who said that there will be ladders of 50-100 meters?

          • Alberto Sánchez

            I hope there will be a reference to Metal Gear Solid 3’s ladder..

          • Edward Wokhands

            That’s the first thing I thought too. Imagine sliding down that ladder by accident, or even dropping. It reminds me of the Shinra building in FF7.

          • MichaelPayneV

            MGS3 said that.

          • Solidfox64

            But now we’re talking about ladders in MGS5.
            Your statement is simply ridiculous if you think we’ll get something like that.

          • MichaelPayneV

            The Game is Open World set in 1984, of course there will be some Huge Ladders at some point, even at your Mother Base.

        • Mini gear

          yeah thats what made stealthy driving in jeeps impossible, i hope they add more shooting chances

    • Mini gear

      Climbing shooting is really needed for when that one guard turns a corner when you start climbing

    • Alberto Sánchez

      I doubt anyone from Kojima Productions enters in here to read your comment, bro. You should write a text document, upload it online and tweet about that to Konami or KojiPro accounts.

      • Actually, several Kojima Productions members visit this site. 🙂

        • No Place For Hayter

          We happen to be blessed so 🙂

        • Ninja_Se7eN

          Co-op and and full size arm replica outside of Japan pretty please Kojima Productions *wink wink*!

          • Apparently whether the arm releases outside Japan is up to Sentinel. Wouldn’t count on it happening though.

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            Do Sentinel members visit this website 😛 ?

          • Who knows? Probably not though. 😛

        • Alberto Sánchez

          Ok, I didn’t know it =(

      • glitchbomb

        Hello. You must be new here. Welcome.

        • Alberto Sánchez

          I am immune to your sarsasm.

      • glitchbomb

        Not only has individuals from Koji Pro been here, but Koji Pro L.A is no stranger to MGI either! X)

      • Shalashaska

        And we CAN PROVE YOU WRONG BUDDY! hehe they DO visit the site 🙂 So say hi to them once a while.. they are working hard for us 😀

    • No Place For Hayter

      I agree that would be nice, and even though I think it would be to late to implement such features because of needing mo-cap actors for the actions mentioned, but I won’t say it is impossible because you never know with Kojima productions, specifically Kojima 🙂

    • Ninja_Se7eN

      Honestly I don’t know about those 2 features.
      It would be a nice touch if they were in TPP but I won’t be sad if they’re not.

      IMHO it would be nice to get Snake to slide into cover. It would be a cool realistic way to get out of “oh f***” situations :P.

      • Shalashaska

        im in if that can be done without turning the stealth into another Splinter cell.. Plus rather than a slide function i would like just a small animation where he is desperate for cover in those last seconds than a plain slide into cover.. it would turn into a huge open splinter cell then.. always sliding around rather than crawling and stuff… not to say that is bad or anything but it would sorta not feel right MGS .. IMHO

        • Ninja_Se7eN

          What I meant by sliding is just a slight variation of what you already have when you press the square button on PlayStation (sorry, I don’t know the buttons for the other platforms).
          In other words, when you’re sprinting you’d be given a chance to slide instead of just throwing yourself to ground.
          That way you could keep all of the stealth elements (you’re not suppose to sprint until the alarm goes off IMHO).

      • MichaelPayneV

        He does, but you have to do it manually, by that i mean Quick Dash Left/Right.

    • Edward Wokhands

      There might not be massive ladders in the game so I don’t care about ladder sliding. The shooting while climbing idea is great but I probably wouldn’t care if it wasn’t in the game, we’d just have to be extra careful before climbing.

  • Rogue Agent

    This even is in Sweden, right? I hope this really comes out in Europe and the US and this is a good sign, unless these events showcase Japanese-only products. EDIT: Silly me, meant Switzerland.

    • Switzerland.

      • Rogue Agent

        Thanks, I meant to say that lol.

        • Will Hough

          I’m definitely holding out hope for a European release!

  • Am I the only one who thinks it’s ugly?

    • MichaelPayneV

      No, i mean i like it, but you are not the only one who finds it ugly, there are some other people that think this way.

    • Ninja_Se7eN

      No my friend I think those watches are very ugly too!

  • Javier Sosa

    They have to sell the eye patch.

  • FOX

    ALL i need is a disc of TPP,nothing else!!!!
    Can’t wait for september

    • Ninja_Se7eN

      I’ll have a CE and full size arm replica with that disc thank you :).
      Can’t wait either!

      • Shalashaska

        And i’ll have YOUR disc, please. Thank you. 😀

        • Mini gear

          And I’ll have everyone’s CE cardboard box it was shipped in thank you 🙂

  • Gatsu

    Cool trailer :)! I like how the scene changes when he is smoking that epic cigar ;D.
    Big Boss sure like to observe stuff, Kojima’s and Kaz’s glasses too.

  • vic boss

    Time goes fast, it’s been one year already since Ground Zeroes came out.

    • Icycool

      ya didnt realize. I have been looking forward to tpp so much that I forgot it been a year already.

    • Gatsu

      A year already, damn time sure go fast :D.

  • glitchbomb

    Gotta say…for some reason that weird child face staring back at me creeped me out a little. O.O

  • PrinceHeir

    I think there is a cutscene like that in the game, but probably without the watch. It’s probably a scene where if you upgrade your arm. Maybe it has more features they haven’t revealed? Also i don’t think the arm was yellow in the first place(pretty sure it’s red)

  • James

    Jeez… you would think such an advanced robotic arm would have a built-in clock and not require you to strap on a wristwatch!

  • Vegas

    Kojima looks like a kid with a new toy. He discovered that he can put real life objects into the game by scanning, and now he does it with everything. Rocks, glasses, watches, his face xD loving it.

  • Shalashaska

    knowing how they showed of His ray ban specs and the Sony walkman cassette player in PW.. It may as well be in the game 🙂

    The KP logo has dissapeared and Konami asks fans to follow this Twitter instead.

    However, Kojima follows that Twitter too. So…
    Whaaaaaa…? :O

    My brain explodes.

  • Xomak

    OMG the music! Whoa-ahh! I guessing that’s how the song will start? Or maybe an arrangement to cue up a cutscene,
