New, mysterious character appeared in MGS4?

People with a sharp eye may have noticed something odd in the new trailer of Metal Gear Solid 4. Although everyone is falling down and some people vomit, there is one guy who is still standing. Now, who is this guy?

Some people at the dutch website may have discovered a clue. This guy has some gray hear in his neck and just above his glasses, which is very similar to the young snake-guy who appeared at the end of the trailer shown at the last Tokyo Game Show.

At the time, everybody thought this was Old Snake, playing around with his Octo-camouflage, but in the new trailer, Snake and this mysterious gray man are both appearing, so it seems this guy isn't Snake. But then, who IS he? Maybe Kojima will reveal him tomorrow, at the live demonstration of MGS4 in Tokyo.

Hit the hump to see some screens as evidence

Maybe it was just Raiden...and that he was just using the ninja suit like Olga did in mgs2...but then again, maybe it IS olga. Or maybe it is Olga's son....god I can't wait for this game!

I also thought it was Raiden. Anyone noticed Maryl's hair? Its the same style it was in MGS. She couldn't change it in 9 years? LOL

Yeh I like the idea that its Olga's son, it would make sense in the MGS Saga, he would have been held long enough by the patriots to be that age, and snake promised to save him too in son's of liberty, so it would make him an ally of Snake's.
Good thinking erosevaporator

Only 6 years down the line from mgs2 big shell which would make olga's son like 8 or something so i doubt it is olga's son.

@erosevaporator Olga got shot stright through the head in the 2nd one i cant see her coming back from that lol xD

thats my guess... but raiden neva was the one to wear shades... hmm

This is Solid Snake's son.......O.0 He is a clone of Snake, just as Snake is a clone of Big Boss. I heard in a podcast from Hidechan's website that the theme in MGS 2 was about censoring information. And that this one was about 'passing on genes' to the new generation.

Besides, Olga died in front of Raiden in MGS 2 and Olga's son is about 6 years old if we follow the current events (The Tanker chapter incident takes place in 2007, at that time Olga was pregnant of her child so he was born presumably in 2008. The Big Shell incident takes place in 2009. MGS4 takes place 5 years after the Big Shell, so the boy isn't old enough to be that guy in the trailer).

I a really big fan of the Metal Gear series.

I own every (canonical) game:
Metal Gear - MSX version on disc 2 of Subsistence on PS2
Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake - MSX version on disc 2 of Subsistence on PS2
Metal Gear Solid - Playstation 1
Metal Gear Solid: Special Missions - Playstation 1
Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes - Gamecube
Metal Gear Solid 2: Son of Liberty (incl. the making of MGS2) - Playstation 2
Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance (incl. The Document of MGS2)- Playstation 2
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (incl. The Metal Gear Saga vol. 1)- Playstation 2
Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence - Playstation 2
Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops - PSP (And I don't even own a PSP!...yet that is, waiting for PSP slim to be released)
Metal Gear Ac!d - PSP
Metal Gear Ac!d 2 - PSP
Metal Gear Solid: Digital Graphic Novel - PSP

Metal Gear games that I don't have (directly):
Metal Gear - NES (Bad port of the MSX and story is a little different than the true MSX game)
Snake's Revenge - NES (Non canonical game hated by most Metal Gear fans, but we must never forget that without this game Kojima would have never made Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake and the further sequels to this great series)
Metal Gear Solid: Ghost Babel - GBC (Non canonical, but fun and good game. Looks alot like Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, I have this one on ROM)

Hahahahahahahahahaa, damn that cracked me up. Did they have to put his hand there, couldn't they put it lower LOL. Hahaha good catch.

Yeh I agree, Its a younger Solid Snake cloned once again from Big Boss DNA
