Metal Gear Solid V trailer getting finalized, is for mature audiences only

Almost there! Tomorrow, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be shown at Konami’s pre-E3 show at 10 am PDT. You will be able to watch a live stream on GameSpot.

Kojima and his team are hard at work putting the final touches to the trailer.

Another interesting bit: Kojima posted a photo of the final sound check.


As you can see, this trailer is rated for mature audiences only, unlike Peace Walker, which was rated for teen. Looks like we will see a pretty dark game.

This is a comment Kojima made on that earlier:

“I’m going to be targeting a lot of taboos, a lot of mature themes, that really are quite risky. Honestly, I’m not even sure if i’ll be able to release the game! […] As a producer, it’s my job to try and sell the game. But I’m approaching this project from the point of view of a creator, where I’m prioritizing creativity over sales.” 

On a sidenote, in the tweet that accompanied the photo above, Kojima said he was ‘mixing the first’, which implies we may get more than one trailer.
