Metal Gear Solid is probably one of the more recognizable video game franchises at the moment. The studio behind the game has made great strides in terms of improving the gameplay and graphics with every release, and safe to say that many are looking forward to the next installment of the game – Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

Well the good news is that during the Tokyo Game Show 2014, the game’s director Hideo Kojima confirmed that we would most likely be seeing the game’s release in 2015. Unfortunately Kojima did not mention when exactly we would be seeing it, but it certainly lines up with previous reports that hinted at a 2015 release.

Also during their presentation at the event, a cinematic trailer of the game was released as well. Unfortunately the trailer seems to be in Japanese so unless you understand the language, we guess you’ll just have to watch it as it is and hopefully it will be good enough to clue you in as to what is going on.

The footage also seems to have been taken from the stream so it isn’t exactly the best quality, but fret not as we’ll keep our eyes peeled for an alternative if it pops up. In the meantime what do you guys think? Are you digging what you see so far?
