Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain - Boss' Coma video

A remixed trailer showing an alternate theory of Big Boss in a comatose state and the strange Phantom Pain happenings being his nightmarish world come to life. (Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS3, Xbox 360)

What this ends up being either way, it looks bloody good.

ugh....I wish Kojima would just confirm or deny this being a Metal Gear game. These assumptions are just annoying now. Yes the evidence is compelling but it is as of right now NOT MGS 5 or Ground Zeroes. It feels way to early to be announcing MGS5 4 months after Ground Zeroes was announced but who knows. Game looks great whatever it is.

I don't think fans are still speculating too much as to what the game series is, more who the characters are, the setting and other oddities. Some people are still wondering if the character is Liquid Snake, despite the fact that Liquid's arm was removed after his death and it was his right arm not left.

It would be quite a major revelation if the character was actually some clone of Big Boss or even Solid Snake himself.

@League of Draven.

Yeh I original held such a theory, I mean the lighter coloured hair is a clue, but then things didn't add up with the Liquid possibility. The speculation that the time setting is the 70's maybe 80's - even with advanced gene ageing that the Big Boss clones had, would Liquid Snake really look that old when he was born in 1972 and why would he have the classic missing eye.

Some have suggested that this is Big Boss during his coma when Major Zero started Les Enfants Terrible project.

As for the flipped image. I think flipped could imply "alternate" rather than "reversed". I mean, Kojima created an alternate version of himself with the Joakim Mogren character - or so we're led to believe.

Remember when Ground Zeros was announced and Kojima intentionally released an image of the character flipped instead of how it is normally? I feel like this video was flipped too and that it really is Liquid. This means that it really is his right arm that was removed but now that it's flipped you're thinking it's his left.

I'll go with what I said earlier. this isn't ground Zeroes but rather MGS5. It isn't Big Boss but is instead the story of Liquid and Frank Jaeger.

Most of what they are seeing isn't real due to Psycho Mantis who has been sent by Big Boss to actually assist them.

@Morganfell. I am tempted to agree - Liquid was actually one of the first theories I had, but like I said, things didn't add up. I then spent several hours researching Liquid's past for clues.

Liquid trained by MI6 taken in by SIS, a young member of the SAS and what people tend to forget - a master of disguise much like Decoy.

I scoured maps for the training he had in the UK where he grew up, his life in Iraq and the Gulf war to see if the Cyprus map had any relevance to no avail - I assume MI6 training camps would be pretty hush hush (silly me). I even had a thought that the young mantis figure could actually be Young Liquid.

I researched those Green and White capsules which could produce hallucinations if the drug matched - of which there is no way of telling.

It would be great to follow Liquid's tale but I'm still sceptical due to the injuries sustained. However, Liquid was traded off when he was captured and would have undergone serious torture in the Gulf, so this could explain the missing limb and eye. However, a missing limb wouldn't fit with the Shadow Moses incident, but then again, the whole trailer seems like a metaphor.

A shame you can't post any more, it would be interesting to hear why you think it's Liquid.

@League of Draven. If you look closely at the part where Snake and all the Patients are trapped in the hallway with the prison bars and getting shot from both sides you can see a stairwell sign and its not flipped

Totally missed the floating child on the first view...damn kid Mantis!
bunt-custardly  +   619d ago
I also wondered if that child who people think could be a young Mantis, is actually a young Liquid, something about that blonde hair in the elevator scene. Although in MGS we never got to see the real Mantis because he was horribly disfigured. I think it's the mannerisms of him floating, the dangling arms and skinny frame not ignoring the general wackiness of the entire trailer that creates a Mantis comparison.

Early speculation suggested that this could be a boss battle with a young Mantis which is interesting, but unclear how the relationship with Big Boss would tie in. No matter who he is. I'm leaning towards the character actually aiding our hero rather than hindering his escape in the trailer.

League_of_Draven  +   619d ago
It's not Metal Gear Solid 5. It's Metal Gear Solid V(ita) Although the game will be on both the Vita & PS3. Metal Gear doesn't use roman numerals.

Very interesting. I never thought about the Video being shown backwards or mixed up. Kinda reminds me of Memento. This video actually makes a lot of sense though.
