During a GDC panel, Hideo Kojima revealed that The Phantom Pain and Metal Gear Solid V were indeed the same game. Ending months of speculation from fans as the initial reveal trailer for The Phantom Pain was made at the Video Game Awards last year. No one saw this coming. Holy shit, guys.
Jokes about how we all guessed it months ago aside, the entire campaign from Konami was fun and different. We should be glad we have developers that try something new to bring out excitement from gamers. Even if the internet will pounce immediately and guess it all. More details on Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will arise as the panel is going on right now. All I know is that I’m excited as hell and the game is going to be absolutely gorgeous thanks to The Fox Engine.
