Kojima seems to be behind the Phantom Pain project

21 Mar

We’ve talked a lot about this mysterious Phantom Pain, with the recent interview of Joakim Mogren and the last teaser trailer from Moby Dick Studio.

People is still saying that behind all this well-thinked plan there’s the genius mind of our dear Hideo Kojima, and that The Phantom Pain will be nothing more that a new Metal Gear Solid title.

We don’t know if Joakim Mogren exists or not, nor if the game will be an another MGS; but now it’s kinda sure that Kojima is in the project…well, more than that. In fact, today Kojima posted a picture on Twitter with a screenshot of a trailer he was making. Take a look.

If you’re wondering what the hell he said, it’s just “This is what this lens flair is like, lol.”. But this is not the clue. The trailer says that Kojima is the Producer, Game Designer and Director…but of which game? Take a closer look…check the fine name…got it? Yep, the file name is TPP_GDC2013_720p_ESRB!

TPP is obviously The Phantom Pain…and this could be the trailer they will show in the upcoming GDC 2013.

So, surprise surprise, Kojima is behind the Phantom Pain project!
