Kojima provided some more clues on Metal Gear Solid V’s story theme. He’s been asking fans to guess it prior to the unveiling, but it looks like the correct answer hasn’t been said yet.
Here are Kojima’s new hints:
It’s June already, meaning E3 is approaching.
Question Gene(MGS1)→Meme(MGS2)→Scene(MGS3)→Sense(MGS4)→Peace(MGS PW)→???e（MGSV) Answer will be revealed in Pre-E3 on 6/6.
Theme of PW was PEACE. Paz/Kazu (both means peace) starred & was about deterrence as one of the method of keep peace in human society. The ending of PW was he/she’s chosen deterrence in order to keep his/her mother-base. Theme of V is “???e”. 2 characters in Kanji.
PW was about deterrence, & peace as theme. Story of MGS3 was about Cold War, &SCENE as theme. In MGSV will be about “??” & “???e” as theme.
So, to sum it all up:
it’s a four letter word
it ends with an e
in Japanese it consists of two kanji characters
it’s not love, fate, or hope
The theme will be revealed along with the new trailer on Konami’s pre-E3 show, on June 6th.
