Press Pass Special: Holy Shit! It’s Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Press Pass Special
Snake’s back!

That’s right Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is on it’s way. And no, you won’t need to shell out on a new PlayStation 4 or Xbox Whatever.

Hideo Kojima’s new game is coming out on current gen consoles. Not only have Konami released this great new, but they’ve also released a trailer from the game…and it’s great. It’s a shame that the definitive voice of Snake, David Hayter, isn’t voicing this one. That being said it should be hard to find someone with a suitably raspy voice capable of muttering Kojima’s incoherently babbling dialogue.

Here’s what Konami said earlier today:
