Kojima updates: Business dinner, and game checking shows MGSV pause screen and checkpoint system

Kojima has retuned from his business trip to Los Angeles, and is back in Japan, where he had a meeting with Yoichi Wada (board chairman at Square Enix) and Julien Merceron (recently appointed worldwide technology director at Konami), among others.

“Had dinner with Mr.Wada. Cheer to the future of Julien and the attack to stagnating industry.”

Another interesting update by Kojima shows Metal Gear Solid V’s game over screen running on a (by the looks of it) current gen hardware. Not much to see, but better than nothing at least.

“Typhoon is gone but still is in my head giving me a headache. Not easy to proceed game checking.”

Looks like it’s running on Xbox 360. It may very well be a placeholder screen though. For now, it seems that the game will feature checkpoints, and you can also restart the entire mission or go back to the title screen through the pause menu.

    Hmmm… that screenshot seems like more of a Game Over screen, personally.

    • Nyxus

      Both are possible I would say. So yeah, it could also be a game over screen.

  • Ricardo Oe

    Business dinners !
    Like cool !

  • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

    good Kojima, you gave us that and what the checkpoint screen may look like. Now give us a story detail or two; I’m craving for more MGS and must satisfy that craving with information!

    • Nyxus

      I wouldn’t expect many concrete details, but hopefully some small updates at least.

      • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

        yeah, just a small update would do me good. A trailer or details at Spike VGA perhaps?

        • Nyxus

          Yeah, that’s a possibility. Would be nice.

          • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

            Yep. :)

            By the way, who is down-voting most of the comments here?

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            the asshole Anonymous of course.

          • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

            By the way, could you send a reply to a no-life fail troll known as “Truthteller”?

          • Sorahearts

            Agreed. By the way can you do me a favour? can you delete Anonymous’s comments cause he’s giving me a headache and he’s making me sick with all of his hate comments?

          • Nyxus

            Yeah, I’m kind of done with his trolling myself.

          • Sorahearts

      • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

        Religious/Politically conservative morons (including *cough* “Anonymous” *cough*) should take their ignorance somewhere else.

        • Anonymous of America

          how much of a goddamn loser can someone be

          • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

            @Anonymous of America

            And…how much of a moron can the 2nd version of “Anonymous” be?

  • Markos

    The font in the game over screen reminds me of PS1 somehow.. (and I rike it!!)

  • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

    AWESOME!!!!

    • Anonymous

      …not

      • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

        …Yes*

        • Sorahearts

          All of Anonymous’s comments have been deleted now

          • Nyxus

            He’s also been banned. That guy has serious issues.

          • Sorahearts

            True. Well he’s learned his lesson from now on

          • Anonymous of America

            im sure he has, he’s learned that all mgs fans are gay as hell and drone to death

          • Sorahearts

            Now I can see why you made a new account

          • Nyxus

            Next time he makes a new account, it would be best to ignore him. I’ll ban him and delete his comments as soon as possible.

          • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

            Yep. But this is the “Internet”, where almost anything is possible, according to SCIENCE.

            The “Anonymous” user does NOT give up easily.

          • Sorahearts

            Yeah thanks. That guy should always be banned for trolling

          • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

            Agreed. :)

        • Anonymous of America

          no

          • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

            Yes*

  • PrinceHeir

    awesome stuff :)

  • Anonymous

    goddamn do i ever hate this fucking series. what a shitty game

    • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

  • PrinceHeir

    actually it doesn’t look like a pause screen, but a game over screen since it’s similar to Peace Walker’s game over screen.

    • Nyxus

      I changed it to ‘game over screen’ in the article, since most people seem to think that’s what it is, and it makes sense.

  • Sorahearts

    This is awesome

    • Anonymous of America

      no its not
