Metal Gear Solid 5 (not) confirmed!


Hideo Kojima has said he’s not making Metal Gear Solid games anymore. The problem is, he said this about two or three Metal Gear Solid games ago. What this means is that we’re always expecting him to go against his word and just make another MGS, which is why it comes as little surprise that number five in the (numbered) series has recently been mentioned by the man.

But rather than question why Kojima operates in this way, telling us one thing (“I am not making another Metal Gear Solid”) before doing another (making a Metal Gear Solid), we’ll just accept that he’s probably going to do it. It might not be his next game, it might not come out for another decade, but Hideo Kojima will make Metal Gear Solid 5.

So now we’ve come to accept this, we can offer Kojima some suggestions for things that should be incorporated into Future Metal Gear (the first one is the title, which we think should be “Future Metal Gear”):

  • 3D. Obviously, as MGS is already coming out on 3DS. A game built from the ground-up to take advantage of the functionality, by a creator like Kojima who will take risks (and muck about) would be a wonderful thing. It would even – possibly – show us some ways in which 3D becomes an integral part of the experience.
  • Better haircuts/facial hair. Solid Snake and Naked Snake are both well known for their hair-choices. Mullets, 80s stubble, fantastic taches – the whole set of things we should all have at some point in our lives, even if we’re female. So (with added 3D) MGS5 could bring to the fore some truly revolutionary haircuts and the kind of facial hair that can unite the world under its awesomeosity.
  • David Hayter saying “Metal Geeeeear?!” a bit more. Just because we want this to have been recorded with approximately 3,204,583 different intonations on the different stressed sounds in the words. Then we can emulate it.
  • Move control. See the 3D bit, and switch out the references to 3D for references to Move. Makes sense, yes?
  • Storylines. Ohhh, the storylines. We’re not going to go into it right now, but on August 5 you’ll be able to see just why we love Metal Gear storylines so very much. Yes, that’s right, we’ve crammed a plug for the mag into this list.

That should about cover it for now. Any other suggestions?
