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!

The making of Metal Gear Rising murals

7 Mar

Surely you still remember the amazing and huge murals made by End Of The Line in London, Liverpool and Leeds for the launch of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Well the game is now out (and it’s amazing) and Konami decided to release a video “making of” of the three graffiti. Enjoy (and expect some heavy dubstep).

Giant Metal Gear Rising murals decorate three UK cities

Tired of all these Metal Gear Rising trailers? Yep, the new title from Platinum Games looks awesome and all, but Konami felt that its new masterpiece (we hope it will be, because Platinum guys are cool and talented) deserve some more hype…

That’s why EndOfTheLine, a company based in East London focused on producing huge murals and cutting edge installations, has been contacted by the Japanese software house to perform some graffiti about Raiden in three UK cities.

You can find these pieces of art in Ropewalks Square in Liverpool (where the above pics were taken), Sclater Street in London’s Shoreditch and Aire Street in Leeds. The artworks aren’t quite finished yet, but by tomorrow the should be.

EndOfTheLine guys are quite famous for this kind of campaigns, indeed they used to work within the video games industry quite a lot. Check their portfolio to see some of their best work to date.

This is the kind of advertisement we like!
