When Kojima Productions hit us with the red band trailer for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, we were taken aback with not just the level of blood and violence, but the sheer “WTF”-ness of the events happening.
It has since been revealed that the child in the trailer, having a package removed from her intestines was Paz from Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. In a new episode of the Japanese Kojima Productions Podcast, Kojima confirmed the same.
Chico, from the Ground Zeroes trailer, was also confirmed. He also talked about a character named Strangelove, also from Peace Walker, and how the children with their diamonds in their hands at the end of the red band trailer have a role in one of the missions.
Also, that mech that Snake is seen piloting at the end of the trailer? It will be playable in-game, though as of now, there’s no information on just how it will come into play. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is so far confirmed for PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PS4.
