Hideo Kojima is getting pumped for the release of Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes. Despite concerns about game length, the MGS creator is getting ready to release a comparison trailer for all version of the game and has now tweeted an image of the Limited Edition box for Japan.

Meanwhile, new Solid Snake voice actor Kiefer Sutherland spoke to IGN about his experience with working on The Phantom Pain (the epilogue and major portion of Metal Gear Solid 5’s storyline). “Oh man, that’s been a gig and a half! I’ve been working on that for over a year.

“You know, I’ve got, like, 50 metal dots on my face, 50 cameras recording my every facial movement. The process and the technology and what I have to go through just to do a line, and what the engineers and technicians have to do, it’s unbelievable. But then when I saw it…There was a guy who was applying the dots and was just in charge of that part, and he was making his own game; he’s some technical wizard, and this game is supposed to be really cool.

“But they were showing us some stuff that they had just finished in Japan, and they were showing it back to us. It was this one little clip that’s final, final, final, and it’s me on a horse. I’m riding the horse, and then I go from a run to a lope to a walk, and then standing still. I don’t know a lot about games, so I’m watching it, and the guy who’s watching it with me goes, ‘Oh my God. Your ears moved.’

“Then he was looking at the throat, and he said, ‘You can see the pulse.’ I mean, it was so real, and all I kept thinking was, ‘This is how they’re going to make movies soon.’ They’re halfway there now, you know, but they’re going to make films like this. This is not far off. “

As for Snake, Sutherland said, “The character is one of the few things that they say is, ‘Lower!’ [raspy Snake voice] What are you gonna do? I’m talking, and I start sounding like Tom Waits. But I’ve really enjoyed it, and they’re really good people.”

Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes will be releasing on March 18th in North America and March 20th in Europe for Xbox One, PS4, PS3 and Xbox 360.
