Yesterday Konami held their pre-E3 show, during which the voice actor for Snake in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was revealed, as well as the themes ‘race’ and ‘revenge’. However, the trailer Kojima has been working on wasn’t shown here. Today, Kojima talked some more about this, and about E3 in general. Here is what he said:
“As E3 being Olympic in game industry where all world top studios come to compete, I wanted to see the reaction of my trailer I’d worked on.
As being a creator, I am always curious about how this will be received. So I invited some groups of people to watch my trailer this week.
Among visitors saw the trailer, esp Yumi Kikuchi started sobbing right fr the start and cried too hard to get back to radio show for a while.”
Apparently some last minute changes on the trailer were needed:
“Trailer once being fixed but decided to change a bit as a result of monitor feedback. Changing now in progress.”
Kojima also had a poster made for E3, which he received today:
“Limited 10 copies of poster made Especially for E3 HAS arrived.”
