15 reasons why The Phantom Pain is Metal Gear Solid 5

Don’t think The Phantom Pain is Metal Gear Solid 5? Here, let me show you 15 reasons why it absolutely is. From MGS 3 characters to scars and Ground Zeroes links this has Kojima written all over it. (Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

The Metal Gear series uses numeric values for each specific entry - not roman numerals.

This is not MGS5. It's just not. You're seeing what your eyes, and a clever photoshopper want you to see.

From a marketing, promotional and budgetary standpoint, THREE Metal Gear games simultaneously announced is a nightmare for Konami. You've got Revengeance, Ground Zeroes and now MGS5? No... Just no...

This is intended to be viral hype for Ground Zeroes - that's it. The outside of the hospital looks precisely like the Cuba we've seen in that original Ground Zeroes trailer, too.

I think Ground Zeroes is going to have a substantial psychological effect on Big Boss - as indicated heavily by the trailer, and we'll begin to see his descent into who we know him as in the original Metal Gear.

So no, it's not Metal Gear Solid 5. You'll see soon enough - maybe even prior to E3.

For those who hate flipping through 15 pages to find out the list.

1. It SAYS IT IS!
2. This man is a dead ringer for Dr Marv
3. Kojima tweeted all the trailer’s mo-cap
4. It says it with flowers
5. Those are MGS issue hospital pants
6. Mini-Mantis anyone?
7. From ‘FOX’ two phantoms were born
8. The burning man’s in MGS armour
9. Hello Volgin
10. He looks a bit like Raiden
11. It’s full of FOX Engine tech
12. GIANT FLAMING DEATH WHALE!
13. If it looks like a Snake and sounds like a Snake…
14. More mini-Mantis
15. This is the guy…

But Konami or Kojima didn't announce MGS5 yet and this may not be confirmed until late 2013 when GZ would be supposedly out. Rising is coming February and it's a different Metal Gear that fits in a different genre not to mention it is being developed by Platinum Games.
CarlosX360  +   630d ago
It doesn't matter if MGS5 was announced or not. Kojima has not directly evangelize Ground Zeroes or The Phantom Pain as Metal Gear Solid 5. The end, until he does... it's all speculation.
geddesmond  +   629d ago
Actually it may not be Metal Gear Solid 5 as the voice at the end of the trailer says V has come through which suggests these could be numbered codes of clones from big boss and its Metal gear solid: V which is about the clone V. But to say MGS uses numeric values instead of Roman numerals and thats why its not number 5 has no logic because that is not a trademark of Kojima and he could change the number system at any time if he felt changing 5 to V fitted the story better due to V has come through. This is Kojima, this is the sort of trolling he does. We all got mind bucked.

Well, I think that about says it all...My body is ready!

It's about as "MGS5" as Peace Walker. -_-
TotalHitman  +   630d ago
Slide 10, I think is Ivan Raidenovitch Raikov (Volgin's lover), not Raiden.
Sarcasm  +   630d ago
Yup its not Raiden, its the character in MGS3 that happen to look like Raiden.

I don't think its 5 simply because why would he stretch himself so thin and start working on 5 when ground zeros is coming out and its a AAA title, he wouldnt want sales from one or the other to affect each others sales. Kojima does not do stuff like this. maybe 2 years after ground zeros 5 will come out on the next gent consoles.
ForgottenProphecy  +   630d ago
Anybody who doesn't agree that the evidence adds up to this being a Metal Gear game is in denial. Personally, I'm not sure if it is 5 or Ground Zeros, but it IS one or the other.
zerocrossing  +   629d ago
Apparently it's a world premier trailer of an entirely new game, so it kinda rules out it being Ground Zeroes.

Kojima hinted that he is planning on making MGS 5 during Ground Zeroes reveal so maybe this is actually the teaser trailer for MGS 5, either way I can't wait to see more.
Shane Kim  +   630d ago
This is why I love Kojima. Always makes funny stuff like this.

"from fox two phantoms were born", the visual style and the fact the guy looks a lot like big boss/snake are pretty obvious reasons why it's mgs:gz.

if u notice in the trailer... it seems both characters are hallucinating what they have experienced on the war zone... i cant help but notice a SUV head lights approaching from the end of the hall when both characters enter the room... and just for the record i had no such info that this game cud be mgs5 before i saw the trailer and to me also it gave a clear mgs vibe.. and wont be surprized if it turns out an mgs game

It's not it is, who knows but instead of using three titles headlining the subject why not use one.
grailly  +   629d ago
So, I played MGS 2, 3 and 4 and can't remember any details of the story. does anyone know where I can find a good summary? I don't even remember who the different snakes are...(liquid? solidus?)
PS_Family  +   629d ago
It's V from Vita.
Liquid_Ocelot  +   629d ago
Why showing it as a multiplatform title then?
Or at least that's what's been said..

Ps: I still agreed with you, not many people have thought that one up.. a Vita game, it could be one actually. Transfarring anyone?

MGS V or new game, either I'm excited since Kojima is giving this game the royal treatment and simply means it's gonna be mindblowing. There are few developers this gen I trust and Kojima has never failed me. He always trolls us in a fun and interesting way.
THamm  +   629d ago
It could still be Metal Gear Solid V_____ita
oops sorry PSFam already said it
