While the awards show is still on-going, a new IP has been revealed titled The Phantom Pain at the VGA 2012 Awards. Developed by Moby D*** Studio, the world premiere showcased a futuristic setting with an unknown protagonist sporting a prosthetic arm.
While no release date or platform was specified in the trailer, you can check out below and keep an eye for more information later.
Update: Speculation is running wild that the trailer is related to Metal Gear Solid, with Internet detectives noticing the similarities of the main character with Solid Snake, and finding several other clues hinting at the connection.
Don't know if its a weird coincidence but the first thing i though when i saw the character was that looks like Snake. Now it seems i wasnt the only one, and there is some talk going around now that it might not be a real game, but a viral thing for the next Metal Gear game. Also this is interesting.
another video that's been taken down :/
Yeah they are being quite swift with the takedowns, makes things a tad annoying.
That whole Joakim. Kojima thing almost has me pretty close to convinced. The graphics look just as good as the new fox engine. Whatever it is though I was sold at a Giant flaming whale eating a helicopter :D
Not sure if its MGS related at all but I think he looks a lot like Snake but this looks really interesting with the fire unicorn and the giant whale. Looking forward to more info
Just to clarrify, the theory isn't that this is 'related' to MGS, or that this is Solid Snake.
The theory is that this IS MGS:GZ and that it is Big Boss.
