Metal Gear creator teases ‘mind-blowing’ PS4 news

Thursday, 14th November 2013 03:46 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has teased some sort of PlayStation 4-related news to be revealed tomorrow.

On Twitter, Kojima first promised “important news” on SpikeTV on Thursday.

In a follow-up tweet, he described the news as “a shocking PS4 related announcement that will blow your mind”.

Presumably, he was referring to the PlayStation 4 All Access event, which will also include news about Destiny and the new The Last of Us DLC.

The news may be something to do with the PlayStation exclusive content for Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes.

Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is coming in northern spring 2014 as a separate prologue to Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, which has not been dated.

Both are coming to PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Kojima has been on a press junket in the US for the past few days, so presumably we can expect plenty of new MGS 5 news sometime over the next few days as coverage emerges from under embargo (and out of dictaphones).

Thanks, Gamespot.

    Well, exclusive PlayStation content is already as good as confirmed, anything else?

    In hindsight, it looks quite funny how both Rising and MGS 5 were first announced on MS conferences, but in the end both ended (and will end up) with some sort PS exclusive.

    A Metal Gear Solid remake would be my guess at this point.

    If it was just exclusive content, it must be real good to be “mind blowing”.

    The Last of Us DLC news will be coming from the PS4 event? Hummm….

    Anyway, its either DLC or ZOE3. I’m hoping its ZOE3.

    I don’t think it is one of his games, but a new take on an old game. What else could he be doing besides the two metal gears with exclusive content announced?

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he planned for MGS4 to be ported to PS4s. I would also laugh my ass off (in a good way) if he announced DLC for MGS4, even and especially if it was still only for PS3.

    @7 – First point: Not mind-blowing. Second point: Then he wouldn’t have said it was PS4-related, now would he.

    @12 – The only mind-blowing thing about that would be why he’s bothering to make another portable Metal Gear game.

    @16 – He said, “mind-blowing,” not “crushingly disappointing.”

    Probably david hayter reprising his role as solid snake, returning to set big boss on fire…


    Fingers crossed.

    Hayter voicing PS4, Kiefer voicing XB1 confirmed.

    Would be the same as making the game a PS4 exclusive sales wise.

    ^ the ‘PS4 related news’ might just be a mistranslation, its happened quite a few times with some of his comments in the past.

    I cant see him bringing something major to the PS4 and not to the X1, I know he prefers sony but it would be a little harsh to the X1 crowd to be missing out on something ‘mind blowing’ I hope its a mistranslation just for there sakes…

    @26, uh nah it’s correct, most overrated developer ever… the fact he can’t even keep a story consistent just goes to prove that.

    Also, ooh look at this stealth mechanic! You can transform into a box! Wtf?!

    You try and keep such a large story consistent.

    With a plot which has been getting developed for around 30 years with so many weird characters and events it would be impossible to keep a story like that completely on track 100% of the time.

    Transform into a box? You mean ‘hide in a box’ yeah? He isnt a gobot.

    Play as classic low-poly Snake.

    Mind-blown from this being considered mind-blowing.
