Hideo Kojima is hard at work on a tight schedule preparing for E3 next month. He’s currently editing a trailer for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
In this trailer Kojima is trying to avoid including flashy moments as much as possible, so no crashes, explosions, or things like that. He seems to be aiming for something more subtle this time around.
According to Kojima, the trailer will be a combination of lyrics, music, visuals, dialogue and titles, and it will have a structure that will make the theme of the game known to everyone. Themes of previous games were GENE (Metal Gear Solid), MEME (Metal Gear Solid 2), SCENE (Metal Gear Solid 3), SENSE (Metal Gear Solid 4), and PEACE (Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker).
Earlier this month Kojima’s comments suggested a gameplay demonstration at E3, and it’s not entirely clear whether that is a separate video or one and the same thing. It is quite possible there will be both a story trailer (the one talked about above) and a gameplay demonstration (live played or not). That would be great news for Metal Gear fans.
We won’t know for sure until E3. Konami’s pre-E3 show will take place on June 6th.
