Hideo Kojima doesn’t work at Konami anymore, however the writer remains to be making Metal Gear video games. And that unprecedented dynamic has led to a brand new video for the upcoming Metal Gear Survive that reveals a mutated model of the Kojima model. It doesn’t actually work — though it’s kinda bizarrely fascinating in its personal means.

The trailer is up on YouTube courtesy of IGN, and you may watch it proper right here:

Metal Gear Survive takes the mechanics (and among the areas) from Metal Gear Solid 5 and provides zombies, as a result of that’s what the children like. It additionally introduces base-building and new crafting parts. You can see within the video that gamers can use stealth to get round threats, set traps, or lure the zombies off of cliffs.

But whereas we’re studying extra about what the gameplay is like in Metal Gear Survive, we’re additionally studying how Konami plans to place this recreation for long-time followers. And the reply to that’s no apparent Solid Snake/Big Boss characters within the advertising and presumably a thinly veiled reference to Konami slicing ties with Kojima.

The opening minute of the video is essentially the most Kojima-like, and it options some authorities or navy official apologizing to somebody in a coffin.

“Forgive me for what I’m about to do,” says the Laurence Fishburne-looking dude earlier than his troops shove the coffin into the ocean.

Maybe I’m studying an excessive amount of into this, however this virtually looks like Konami referencing its break up with Kojima and ending his relationship with the Metal Gear sequence. Kojima likes to put apparent metaphors in his trailers. Check out a few of his current clips from Death Stranding to see his emotions about having his creation taken away from him by Konami. And now, perhaps, it looks like Konami — or the present leaders of the Metal Gear franchise — are answering him by his favourite type of communication: the sport trailer.

Of course, Konami’s effort doesn’t work fairly as effectively. It comes off like an affordable knockoff of the unique. That doesn’t imply that Metal Gear Survive can’t be a very good recreation, however it might wrestle to discover a new voice for the sequence.
