Metal Gear Solid 4 April Fools Video

Konami just posted another April Fools video for MGS4. Possible hint at the next Metal Gear? (LittleBigPlanet, Metal Gear, Metal Gear Online, Metal Gear Online SCENE, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS3)

Heres my theory on MGS5:

Main Character: Raiden
Primary Support: Colonel
Story: Rescue Sunny from the Patriots and shows how Raiden became the cyborg ninja

Kojima is God

Hadn't Campbell already married Rosemary at that point though?
Chris Hansen  +   2509d ago

Fine, heres another theory:

Main Character: Frank Jaeger / Grey Fox
Primary Support: Colonel
Story: Before the events of the original Metal Gear, acting as a prequel.

Wouldn't the support at that time have been Big Boss? :P
Chris Hansen  +   2509d ago
No. Frank Jaeger hadn't defected to Big Boss yet. He didn't defect till Metal Gear 2. He was held as a prisoner in Metal Gear 1.
PirateThom  +   2509d ago
But Big Boss was still in charge of FOXHOUND though, wasn't he?

A prequel could sort this out.
MisterNiwa  +   2509d ago
You look beautiful...
Timesplitter14  +   2509d ago
If I remember correctly, Grey Fox was transformed after the minefield in MG2 by the Patriots (Para-Medic). And that's when Big Boss got burned, so the support character can't really be Big Boss.

It could be Campbell, but I really doubt it. In MGS1, he didn't look like he knew much about Grey Fox, so I doubt he's been on a mission with him in the past. I think it's more probable that your support is a Patriot member like Major Zero or EVA.

EDIT : oh sorry I just realised you said "before MG1". Well yeah it's quite posssible then, but I don't see why they would've put a cyborg ninja on the teaser image

Is this video uploaded to somewhere else? It doesnt seem to work for me, all it says is: buffering.
umair_s51  +   2509d ago

usin420  +   2509d ago

@ PirateThom
Campbell married Rose to protect her while Raiden was doing his mission. Nothing romantic or intimate happened between them.
Sarcasm  +   2509d ago
It's a possibility that the next MGS game has nothing to do with Raiden or Snake, and introduce a completely new character with the storyline completely different too.

Rosemary is so HOTT!!!!

"The Next Metal Gear"
Is not MGS5.

The next Metal Gear is simply MGS4: Sub/stance/sistence.

In it, you'll be able to play as Raiden with his own ninja move-sets and maybe his own scenarios. Shall I say... Ninja Raiden Sigma? :P

That was so full of win i can't even describe it! Kojima FTW

funny all i see is buffering....buffering....bumm er.....
onijutsu  +   2509d ago
it was funny at the start because i remember people thinking that the cyborg ninja was carrying a cane, when really it was a tassel on the end of his vibroblade.

that sounded wrong...

lol at raiden being owned...(whoa i right clicked raiden for spell check and the first thing was "rained", as in "it even rained the day i was born" :o...)
metal gear campbell, instead of energy drinks he could have canned soup. An Italian or Japanese ration would give you extra health/psych over American rations...(MGS4 inside joke)
do they have Campbell's soup in the rest of the world?
M-Easy  +   2509d ago
Oooh wierd?
Nice tangent. Btw that cane sure is sharp. I need 1 of those.
TheAntiFanboy  +   2509d ago
I actually thought it was really dumb. Campbell having the mask on in the first scene completely ruined it all for me. He should have done the entire thing without the mask, really.
jessehaysfl  +   2509d ago
hehehe campbells soup.....just ask rosemary........Oo
windmill145  +   2509d ago
LOL, April Fools must be Kojima favorite time of the year.

BTW, that video reminded me A LOT of those Blooper(Hidden Theater) vids of MGS3: Subsinstance(spelling?).

My guess is that the next Metal Gear will be an expansion pack of MGS4 in which we will see how Raiden became cyborg along with some other extra stuff like VR Missions, more joke videos, and Trophies support.

jessehaysfl  +   2509d ago
oh and @1 Mr. hansen you look familiar werent you there when i got arrested?
Neo604  +   2509d ago
thanx mr. kojima for the video.
give me trophies so i can play more.
onijutsu  +   2509d ago
WHY would anyone disagree withyou?!
TheForgotten0ne  +   2509d ago
Because he should play that game, even if he didn't get Trophies!
dorron  +   2509d ago

I wouldn't love to see Raiden being the main character if the story was post-MGS4, as I don't see Raiden being a stealthy character nowadays...more like a here-I-am-and-I-am-going-to-ki ck-your-ass character.

Maybe if it was pre-MGS4...

I still keep faith and would love Snake or Big Boss to keep being the main characters.
SlaughterMeister  +   2509d ago
Raiden was very stealthy, Snake didn't see him until he wanted Snake to see him. He kept out of sight the whole time.
stevoman75  +   2509d ago
@ dorron think of it this way
remember in mgs4 when raiden was first revealed but snake didn't know who it was because raiden was being all silent ninja and what not telling snake to look at tracks. well to me at that time it seemed like raiden would only use his badass skills when he has to. when he first started fihting the ekko it wasn't to show skills it was to pay snake back for the help he provided in MGS2, sorry for the long post. i feel strongly about this
dorron  +   2509d ago
I meant...what's the point in shooting a bunch of soldiers with a tranquilizer gun if you can get rid off them like he did with the geckos in MGS4????

That wouldn't make any sense..

A april's fool joke with a sense of humor. Colonel Campbell kicks ass!
JUSTICEFORALL  +   2509d ago
that was pretty cool, for an old dude he has some moves
stevoman75  +   2503d ago
alright dorron i see your point, but he only fought the gekko's and soldiers in MGS4 because he felt like he owed snake for his contributions in MGS2. but here u go what they need to do is leave a "pissed off meter" so when people in the next game frustrate or "piss off" raiden they u can do crazy combos for a limited time. yeah tell me that ain't the $hit!!!!
