MGSV: Cardboard box returns, exclamation mark almost did not

Alert! Kojima actually considered scrapping Metal Gear’s iconic exclamation mark! The director wanted to replace the icon, that appears over enemies’ heads when they spot you, in favor of a more realistic approach of facial expressions and gestures. In an interview with Famitsu, Kojima explains how his staff said this would cause an uproar, so he decided to add it in after all.

The series’ other staple, the cardboard box, will return as well. Kojima said he wants to include it in the game.

    The exclamation mark’s trademark sound was absent from all the TGS demoes. I hope that isn’t final and can’t wait for what else Kojima will keep or add to the game.

      Hello, “Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3”.

      • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

        Hey “TheScienceEnthusiast1130”. U interested in MGS V, I presume?

        • Sorahearts

          I never realized that, it should be good. I only played 1, 2 and 4 but I didn’t get to play 3. what console is it coming on? I’m very excited to play this ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            WHAT? ! U must play MGS3: Snake Eater! It’s one of the greatest in the series and one of the greatest games period! Get MGS3 in The Legacy Collection for PS3-it’s a game that can’t be missed. How could u have not played it all this time?! MGS V is coming to current gen-PS3/360- and next gen-PS4/Xboc One-consoles, so far. If u can, play it on next gen for full experience. Can’t believe u never played Snake Eater.

          • Sorahearts

            cool, good to hear it’s coming to PS3/Xbox 360 and the next gen consoles. anyway I’m free tomorrow so I should be buying it at the game shop

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            Awesome. Make sure to play MGS3 first as it’s the first game chronologically in the series so u may wanna play the later chronological games after incase u missed something or so after getting intel after finishing MGS3. It’s a game that can’t be missed. U won’t regret it ๐Ÿ™‚ plan on preordering MGS V on PS4.

          • Sorahearts

            I might pre order MGS V for PS4 too, but I’m not gonna get a lot of PS4 games cause I might get broke quicker from buying too much of the games I want for PS4

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            Same here. Probably get Knack, Killzone: Shadow Fall or Infamous:Second Son , or another first party Sony title and then a third party game like Watch Dogs or AC IV:Black Flag when I get it and then wait a few months or more before I get any other major titles. But when Kingdom Hearts III hits PS4, I am definitely getting it when it relases; which is probably at least 3 years off given Square Enix’s pedigree when it comes to game releases on home consoles.

          • Sorahearts

            I plan on buying Kingdom Hearts III, Final Fantasy XV, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Battlefield 4, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Thief including MGS V. Kingdom Hearts III could have a 2015 release but a lot think it’s 2014. anyway, Kingdom Hearts III should either 2015 or 16 cause 2014 is an earlier release and they are gonna rush with it and the first thing we would get in the game is glitches due to it being rushed

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            Yeah, also plan on getting those also when they come out. KH III definitely won’t be coming by 2015. Tetsuya Nomura said he’s too busy to have that and FF XV around the same time so he wants to finish FF XV first and then finish up KH III; given that Lightning Returns FF XIII is releasing early 2014 and almost all FF titles came in Q1 of the year they released, we most likely see FF XV until at least a year after that and then KH III won’t come until at least a year after FF XV hits so I estimate KH will hit on time for KH II’s anniversary unless he releases 2.5 HD ReMix by then it’s gonna be a long while but worth the wait like u said. Plus, Nomura already confirmed KH III is way off from now and only announced it @E3 this year to let everyone know it exists so it will be a lotta time before we receive any updates on the game.

          • Sorahearts

            I also heard a rumour from someone that SE will release FFXV on March but who knows. and I guess it has to be 2016 to make the game a lot more perfect. I also think that 2.5 could release next year on PS3 and Xbox 360 or PS4 and Xbox one but I think it’ll be on these two PlayStation’s PS3 and PS4 but it could be PS4. anyway, KH3 should have a new trailer for TGS or perhaps a few new cutscenes like they did with FFXV but only It had a new trailer

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            That’s probably true. KH 3 most likely won’t get a trailer at TGS this year. Might see more @SpikeVGA, GDC, or E3. Be a waste of time if they put 2.5 also on current gen honestly at this point- just focus on next gen now for SE.

          • Sorahearts

            Right. I hope 2.5 goes on to next gen and I’ll be hoping it’s march for FFXV cause I wouldn’t want to wait another 7 years for it to come

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            Couldn’t agree more.

          • Sorahearts

            I’m pretty much out of a few ideas but what I hope is that KH3 will have better gameplay than the other KH games we’ve played for 10 or 11 years now and I know both FFXV and KH3 will be one of the best games so far cause of the story and gameplay

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            Yeah. Especially the ‘Kingdom Shaders’ Nomura mentioned he would implement. ..that sounded really interesting. Nomura also said besides new gameplay he would also include stuff from Dream Drop Distance and possibly some things from the other handheld KH games and KH II maybe or the first one. Wonder how much the art style will change in the final version of the game from what we saw at E3. I also anticipate the great story and gameplay. Nomura has gotta make KH III go out with a bang, as it will end the Xehanort saga though the series will continue. Both that and FF XV must be the best in their respective series. This gen is gonna be one we soon won’t forget ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Sorahearts

            Yeah that included some kind of Flowmotion thing and I was hoping reaction commands return but the most funny part about reaction commands was pressing triangle all the time lol. if reaction commands were to return in KH3, they should make it where we press different buttons than just pressing triangle all the time

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            Yeah like each button triggers a different move everytime- like dynamic combat or something when it comes to that and then regular commands going to their designated buttons or new layout of buttons to better suit the DualShock 4 and PS4.

          • Sorahearts

            Yeah, or make a cinematic action like XIII-2 pressing buttons, using analog sticks and holding some buttons in to. I’d have hoped they made something like that and we should have cities with cars in and some bikes like Lucis from FFXV or Midgar from FFVII. I always wanted cars and bikes in KH

        • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

          It is confirmed to be on “Xbox 360” and “Xbox One”, so I’ll be interested.

          • Sorahearts

            PS3 and PS4 too, don’t forget those two consoles

          • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

            LOL

          • Sorahearts

            No, I’m warning you not to forget those two consoles

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            Glad to see ur enthusiasm hasn’t waned yet ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Sorahearts

            He’ll be easy to get excited for it

  • Bob Obb

    Haha I was actually afraid he’d do this for MGS5. Glad he listened to reason in the end

    • Hiro

      Hope he listens to reason when it comes to decide wheter to keep Hayter or not for Solid Snake’s voice…

  • PrinceHeir

    man that was a close call ๐Ÿ˜›

    i do wonder if they’ll add more easter eggs ^^

    • Nyxus

      Probably, it’s in every Metal Gear. Kojima also said this game will have ‘stupid jokes’, which could also be easter eggs.

      • Golgari

        I already know one though.
        GDC Gameplay demo (!) there was a small poster with Ground zeroes image and Hideo Kojima name on it ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Sorahearts

        Yeah stupid jokes sounds like easter eggs

  • JustCallMeDeepthroat

    Dudes! the best part of wreck it ralph was the exclamation mark of metal gear solid…
