Check out the MGSV TPP promotional pamphlets that are being distributed in Japan

As part of in-store promotion Konami is distributing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain pamphlets in Japan.

MGSV-TPP-Japan-Pamphlets

They don’t contain a whole lot of new information, but do confirm (as was pointed out by a journalist during the Preview event) that Outer Ops (or at least something similar) will return in MGSV.

On Reddit, user hecheff translated some of the text.

MGSV-TPP-Japan-Pamphlet-4

Obtain people and resources in the field to expand your Mother Base. Expanding Mother Base allows all sorts of new weapons and items to be developed; starting with the ones found during missions, along with all sorts of support. You can also train soldiers and send them off into missions.

Additionally, you can intrude other players’ customizable Forward Operating Base (FOB).

An Open-World METAL GEAR SOLID, a great evolution

Realistic infiltration missions in an Open World

The massive field portrays a realistic passage of time and weather, allowing you to freely form missing strategies to pull off. You can also call on your buddies for support during missions. Capture soldiers, animals, vehicles, weapons, containers, etc. and clear missions to expand your Mother Base.

A Massive Field 200-times larger than “MGSV:GZ”

The explanation of the ‘Forward Operating Base’ makes it appear as though you actually won’t be able to attack other peoples’ entire Mother Base, but only this ‘FOB’. Maybe it’s a precaution to make sure players can’t get ruined because their entire base is looted.

  • Kevin García

    I know some folks here are going to hate me for bringing this up but… In one of YongYea’s analysis (The one about Online infiltration to other Bases) he theorized that there would be an FOB separately from our Mother Base, the video presenter never refers to the base shown as “Mother Base” he constantly refers to it as Forward Operating Base, so this was not fully confirmed but heavily likely from what Yong analyzed in that video, go check it out if you wish!

    • Raymondius

      Well I’m not his biggest fan right now, but you’re absolutely right about it, mate. 😉

      • Maurycy Zarzycki

        Why are you “not his biggest fan right now” if i may inquire? I am not a regular here and your comment got me curious :).

        • Raymondius

          Well, let’s say I used to like him more than I like him now. It could be because of the lack of news, I guess. Still his fan, of course, and absolutely love his analysis, not to mention the great work they are doing with Korrupt Ronin and FraggedNation. In any case, I want to point out that I said it because Kevin said ‘some folks here are going to hate me’, and I understood that he was aware that some people here don’t really like this guy.

    • No, pointing out things that are incorrect is always welcome! Thank you!

    • Batzi

      Yong is awesome! He does give credit where it’s needed unlike what other people say.

      • Snorlax

        He only started giving credit when many people complained for stealing info. Fuck Yongyea

        • Batzi

          He always gives credit. You obviously don’t watch his videos.

          • Snorlax

            You’re wrong, he didn’t do that in the past. He only did it after he heard the criticism. Even JunkerHQ called him out on it on Twitter, saying that their only beef with him is him not crediting his sources. I’m not making this up, look it up.

          • Batzi

            His analysis videos are right on point and I am coming from GAF.

          • Snorlax

            I’m not talking about his analysis videos. I’m talking about YongYea not crediting his sources in the past, he didn’t do that untill people called him out. Get over it.

          • Silverius

            OHHH shit man, you summoned Yong lol.

          • Ravenous

            And in my opinion, being this hung up on small mistakes like crediting sources as just a fan in the very beginning, is minor enough to also get over reasonably fast. Yong does give credit now, and has been for some time, so what’s the big deal anymore?

          • John

            No he doesnt, for example he stated that neogaf started the head transplant/doctor theroy which is wrong.

        • I was a noob journalist when I started out. I was more of a fan sharing information than a journalist, and in my excitement to get information out to other fans, I often neglected to pay attention to giving credit. Obviously, that was wrong, but I heard the complaints and criticisms and I’ve changed that. It’s called learning from mistakes. I’ve become better and more professional at what I do as a result, so I’m always grateful to the critics and complainers, as they do have some valid points amidst all the unnecessary hate and insults. So now, here we are. We can either hold grudges over the past, or we can look forward to a better future.

          -Yong

          • Silverius

            I really like your work man, good stuff. This site and your channel are my main Metal Gear sources, thank you so much for your coverage.

            The honest “Yes I messed up but I fixed that, lets all be friends” bombs, the best bombs in every way, lol.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Whoa, for some reason was not expecting to see you here, lol, I don’t comment on youtube but I do watch your news and interviews, and I gotta say keep up the great work we are all enjoying it.

            If you weren’t so busy actually having a life I would kinda want you to stay, with your attitude and acknowledgement for other opinions I’m sure you would fit right in, lol.

          • Well spoken Yong, and keep up the good work! 🙂

          • Thanks dude! I love this website btw, always on point! And the community here is awesome.

            -Yong

          • Raymondius

            Really nice to see you here. After all, we the community are like a team, wherever we come from (well, except for Gaf; but not Batzi xD), and Nyxus and you have always been the pilars of it.

          • Gatsu

            Hey Yong :D, awesome to see you here! Don’t worry those things are in the past, we’re all brothers here waiting for our most anticipated game ever so it’s all good ;). I wanna thank you for giving us news and those amazing interviews, I love them. Keep ’em coming.

            Your channel and MGI are my two favorite MGS news sources XD, would be cool if you can stay chatting with us for longer in this great community. But I assume you’re busy as hell on your channels + life <(^O^<) lol.

            Nyxus & Yong ftw.

    • chiffmonkey

      This was backed up by the iDroid concept video showing 5 mother bases.

  • Raymondius

    Just one thing: we had already heard the term ‘FOB’ before. Sean Eyestone first said it during Gamescom demo, but he didn’t explain what it meant. I think Yong theorized about the FOBs in one of his analysis and now we know he was correct about it.

    Edit: Just what Kevin García has said! xD

    • Hm, completely forgot about this term. Anyway, edited the post. Thanks for pointing that out!

    • Gatsu

      I had forgotten about Sean saying it ;).

  • No Place For Hayter

    Man, they are trying their hardest to build that hype.

    • Mini gear

      If they sped up the release = x900 hype

  • Solidus Türk
    • Ravenous

      Nope, it’s beyond merely good, it is infact hilariously awsome XD

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      even though i am not indian i still watch indian movies.reminds me of some movie.

  • Gatsu

    All your base are belong to me.

    • Raymondius

      I really hope we can have a slogan when we attack other FOBs… ‘All your FOBs… etc’ xD

    • Only your FOB base are belong to me. LOL

    • Mini gear

      i haz ur bazeburger gatsu

  • Nemis94

    building that hype up to E3, do you guys think there will be new MGS V gameplay?

    • Javier

      I think they will show the hospital scene and something of afganistan. Maybe the skulls.

  • Schmojima

    “Charactor” :/

    • No Place For Hayter

      Too Engrish for us, lol.

  • Niko

    Wait a minute. Does this mean that there will be a separate Mother Base for singleplayer and online mode??? Was Yong’s theory confirmed???

    • Nemis94

      Yong’s theory seems to be confirmed

    • Javier

      Its not a theory. we will have two mb

      • FoxTamerMGO

        You can’t have two mothers.

        • Ravenous

          If he was adopted he could 😉

    • Kol Leqejza

      sean eyestone hinted it since the first multiplayer vid. if people don’t listen it’s not his fault

      • Niko

        I did listen to it. Multiple times because I watched all of the gameplay segments more than once. It seemed strange but we didn’t know at the time because nobody said that we will have to MB. Hey I’m pleased to havve them and can’t wait to build them 🙂

        • Kol Leqejza

          to make it clear: there are two types of invasions: online & offline. in offline invasions ingame charakters will invade ur motherbase. in online ur “friends” are able to invade & infiltrate ur FOB.

  • Batzi

    So it seems they’re leaving his name on the box after all.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Good point, good point, can’t wait to actually hold it, lol. Though I gotta say, where is my Shinkawa cover? GIMME GIMME!

    • AV

      In the first picture it doesn’t look like it, unless that Japanese text means “A Hideo Kojima Game”

      • Batzi

        I don’t think it was suppose to be there in the first place given the text in the middle is taking its place. The pamphlets include the box art with his name on it. The pamphlets are recent.

        • AV

          I agree, it was probably just a re-used picture

  • invader_skoodge
    • Bożydar Mazur

      What am i looking at?

      • David Hayter replaying MGS3: Snake Eater.

        • Bożydar Mazur

          NVM, i read “Im replacing Snake Eater” and I was like “what, how, why, i dont get it”. Im stupid and blind. TY

    • No Place For Hayter

      I feel like I should replay ALL the games again, but I don’t have THAT much time on my hands, lol.

      • ElAlca

        I think I should… but WoW won’t let me. :c

      • Mini gear

        iv replayed too much…

        • No Place For Hayter

          Enough is never enough. The hardest to replay is Peace Walker, every time I replay it I put like 100 hours into it (my first time was like 150-200 hours, lol), I’m a bit of a completionist so games like PC and TPP consume all my time, lol.

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        I feel like I should PLAY the games.

        Yes, I’m on Metal Gear Informer and have only played GZ due to being a PC/Nintendo guy. I hope to acquire MGS3 for 3DS soon, though.

        • Nekkedsnake
          • I plan on buying a cheap PS3 and Metal Gear Legacy Collection at some point, but MGS3 would be nice on 3DS. I’m not sure how the camera is without a Circle Pad Pro, though.

          • No Place For Hayter

            That would be the best way to easily play all the games, I have no better recommendation.

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            I plan on buying MGS Legacy Collection and a PS3 at sometime soon. MGS3 would be nice on 3DS, though. Don’t know how the camera is without a circle pad pro, though.

          • Nekkedsnake

            i own almost all MGS games in existence, save for the physical copies of the MSX and NES carts, and also the japanese imports, so as an owner of the 3DS version of MGS3 i can tell you that the camera controls exactly like Peace Walker on PSP. if that’s your cup of tea, as it is mine, then you’ll be fine. you can crouch walk and over-the-shoulder aim as in PW as well. also, the CQC is handled with the R trigger. so you won’t be caught with your pants down without a circle-pad. and actually, i own the MGS HD collection on my Vita as well, and knowing that it has 2 analog sticks you’d think Konami would have taken advantage of that and updated the controls to suit modern standards. at least have it in the Options menu. but i digress. the only small issue i have with this iteration have to do with the choppy frame rates of the cutscenes. i own Resident Evil Revelations for my 3DS and it’s got better frame rates in comparison tho it’s not too terrible. i recommend MGS3DS for sure. i mean it’s Big Boss on the go!

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            Never played Peace Walker, either. I just watched a review of MGS3D, looks pretty good. Of course, if I buy a PS3 and Legacy Collection I won’t really have much need for it.

        • No Place For Hayter

          It’s cool, new fans are always welcome, kinda sucks you started with GZ though it’s like the only none stand alone MGS game, lol. Glad TPP is coming to PC you can play it 🙂

          Yeah being PC/Nintendo would make it harder to get into the series since it has primarily been a Playstation thing. You could probably play the first two Metal Gear games for the MSX on an emulator on the PC, lol depends on whether or not the game is too old, a lot of people have a hard time playing games that old.

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            I don’t really care to emulate a game unless I legally own it already, just how I am. I’m probably just going to buy a cheap PS3 and Legacy Collection in the end, shouldn’t be more than $100 as far as I know.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Both the MSX MG games are playable in MGS3 anyway, so no need to emulate if you are getting MGS3 🙂

      • invader_skoodge

        I did that a while ago. I had a MGS marathon but now I’m super busy with Witcher 3. I might replay Big Boss’ Saga close to release.

    @Gatsu88:disqus

    I got Darker than Black S1 CE and S2 as well as Knight of Sidonia CE 😀

    For those who didn’t know, Kojima recently recommended Knights of Sidonia which i already knew the series was going to be great even before Kojima even recommended it. So if your looking to watch Anime while waiting for MGSV, Knights of Sidonia and Darker than Black is the perfect place to start ^^

      Here’s Kojima’s Quote

      http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2014-06-20/metal-gear-hideo-kojima-praises-knights-of-sidonia-anime/.75701

      “It’s a kind of anime that we haven’t seen for a while that has that sci-fi spirit. Using digital technology cultivated through games, it creates animation that encapsulates Japan’s cultural assets like manga, cel animation, kanji, giant robots, etc. What’s born is a unique made-in-Japan work that could never be cooked up in Hollywood. Japanese culture has lost its “cool,” and Knights of Sidonia will be the white knight that saves it.””

    • Gatsu

      Awesome :), thanks for the suggestion Prince! <3

      I will definitely check that out :D.

  • flying_fox

    What was hinted at during Gamescom is confirmed, basically that only FOBs can be customised and attacked by other players. Sounds good to me!

  • Sorry for the offtopic.

    http://www.bladeandsoul.com/uk/
    Blade and Soul for Winter in Europe and other countries. About time!
    Does anyone know this game?

    I wanted to play the european version (already played korean) of this MMORPG, but, as it will be released in Winter, i think i will most likely playing MGSVTPP. So… lol :/

    Have a nice day 🙂

  • ObsessedGeorge

    Hahahaha! They nailed it.

    • Golgari

      Perfection.
      The ending is superb:

      “but he’s got new toys now.
      Mobile phones.”

      Sad, hilarious and true at the same time…

    • No Place For Hayter

      Way to cover a whole bunch of things at the same time, lol. I think they summed up the entire history of PT as best anyone could, rofl.

    • Gatsu

      That was superb :).

  • invader_skoodge

    Here’s another 80’s classic.

    “Kaz, I’m already a demon.”

    Big Boss wanted to build a nation where disenfranchised soldiers could call home and do they only thing they know…fight. But Big Boss’ ambition was so big, he didn’t see that he was already on the wrong side of the fight. He couldn’t carry over The Boss’ will, so he set his own goals and was willing to do anything necessary to reach them.

  • PrinceHeir

    I have the Legacy Collection JPN on the right: Black Cover, but it came with a box and all 😛

      Lol so true, that is funny, gotta love how much time these people have on their hands.

    • Chris Jackson

      I upvote this because of awesome quality. Not because I agree.

    • Dr. Miles Manners

      But shouldn’t it said “He wasn’t expensive” or “He was too expendable”?
      I loved the one with Skull Face as “Konami” erasing “A Hideo Kojima Game” from the helicopter.

  • Venom_Sina

    The 2nd pic,it has a typo in it.”Charactor” instead of “Character”!!!

  • Romain Robin

    Interesting to note that the The Phantom Pain stamp on the timeline completely fills the gap between 1975:GZ and 1995: Metal Gear. Could be a hint towards TPP’s story spanning over 10 years until the Uprising of Outer Heaven.

    • Hopefully this is the case and we are all treated to ending that shows Solid Snake invading Outer Heaven.
      And Big Boss saying
      “This is Big Boss operation intrude N313. Infiltrate Outer Heaven and destroy Metal Gear, The final weapon!”

      • Kol Leqejza

        hopefully not. that is more hollywoods approach how to end a prequel.

        • I say hopefully because we aren’t getting another Metal Gear like this. I want Kojima himelf to make full circle wtih the story he created…

          • Kol Leqejza

            it will. but in an awesome, unpredictable kojima way 🙂

        • Chris Jackson

          Kojima loves Hollywood. He says that 70% of his body is made of movies (I know not necessarily Hollywood, but still).

          • Kol Leqejza

            he has his own distinctive style. even though metal gear sells well, kojima is not really that of a mainstream dirctor/writer.

      • Gatsu

        This is the kind of ending I have dreamed about for long time :), but it perhaps doesn’t end like this. Whatever Kojima has come up with will be epic closure to his saga :D.

  • WhatTheJuicay

    Well I’m glad that you can still send your soldiers on mission… Now to make it more innovative, we need confirmation on the option to join an outer op mission. That’d be pretty cool
