Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will take the series into a dark and serious direction. If this wasn’t apparent from the trailers, it should be clear from Kojima’s own statements. The game will include mature themes and will have its share of shocking moments. However, if we are to believe Kojima’s recent Twitter posts, there will also be some of the good old ‘stupid jokes’, as the game director describes it himself.
We can be sure the game will still be tell a serious story, but some comic relief between all the darkness can be welcome, stupid or not.
