Take this information with a grain of salt but a number of users on Reddit and Neogaf have received an email from Sony regarding the launch of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Last week it was announced that Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain will be releasing on September 1st on consoles followed by the PC launch on September 15th.

The game stars Big Boss as the protagonist but according to an email sent from PlayStation, it’s Solid Snake who is coming back to the series. Now this may be a mistake as there is some widespread confusion regarding Snake given that there are so many of them, four to be precise. But Konami must have surely given PlayStation’s marketing team the exact details which in this case should have been Big Boss. Let us consider for a moment that this is mistake but a description from Amazon also seems to indicate that Solid Snake is back.

“Combining open-world action with a new breed of stealth, take on the rough terrain of Afghanistan and tactical espionage with Solid Snake and a whole host of new characters,” reads a description from Amazon. Either the executives from Konami, Sony and Amazon have no knowledge about these characters, which is extremely unlikely or this is some Kojima level trolling in action.

In the past Kojima has hinted that Solid Snake will be back. In fact on one occasion he has explicitly stated he will bring him back. With only a few months to go before the game launches, we will know for sure whether Kojima is playing us like a damn fiddle.

We will keep you updated as this develops.

    pretty sure it’s just a mistype lol. solid snake is not the main character

  • Jason Mounce

    Pretty sure it’s a mistake. There’re tons of people who, if they aren’t fans or haven’t played the series – tend to make this mistake, many especially had done so when MGS3 came out since Big Boss looked exactly like Solid Snake and everyone was like “It’s Solid Snake who went back in time to the Cold War?” or were scoffing at why he can look the same in a drastically different time line. Etc etc.

    So, I see it more as a mistake than a ‘leak’.

      Yeah I agree, a mistake most likely. Definitely played as BB and not Solid, but I think Solid appears in the game at some point.

      Hopefully at some point the game turns into METAL GEAR 1/2 through the eyes of big boss. That’d be a nice way to see snake.Solid Snake.

      But with that being said.. I’m confused as to who the MGS community loves more.. Big Boss or Solid Snake? I mostly hear a lot of bad things about Solid Snake but rarely anything bad about Big Boss. We spent a lot of time thinking of him as the bad guy for 4 games total but get a hard on for him after playing as him for most of the series. Heck we really only get to enjoy snake in 2 games (mgs1 as 1 full game, I counted mgs2 and MGS4 as halves.. mgs2 for obvious reasons and MGS4 because he wasnot the same young snake from mgs1 and 2. Sad really.)

      They kind of confirmed that liquid is the boy in the trailer though. If liquid is in, and a child/teenager, then solid should also be.

    • Jason Mounce

      It’s not that I’m saying SN won’t be in it – but the way they put it isn’t what it should be of ‘Big Boss returns to PS4’, because we’ll be playing Big Boss, and not playing Solid Snake albeit, it’s partially truthful because Solid Snake indeed should be on MGSV, thus, should also be ‘returning’ on PS4 XD

    Not surprising, the game jumps ahead to 1984 and it was around that time Solid Snake was on his first Foxhound mission in Outter Haven if I remember correctly. I’m betting they cloned Solid Snake to experiment making super soldiers and Hyter will voice Solid Snake.

      Well only time will reveal whether it was a typo in the first place.

  • tplarkin7

    Author says “few months away”. It’s 6 months away (Sept 1). “Few” means “3”. That’s not an insignificant difference.

  • John

    ” With only a few months to go before the game launches” 6 months plebs
