Metal Gear Solid games often tackle serious themes but also have a healthy dose of strange humour accompanying them, often delivered through their oddball characters. Metal Gear Solid V will be no different.


On Twitter, series creator Hideo Kojima tweeted, “Since the theme of my next project is ‘Revenge’ I’ve tried to stay serious but I couldn’t help including stupid jokes again.”


“My team members positively accepted & said that’s the essence of MGS but I’d better keep my mouth shot [sic] to Yoji [Shinkawa] in case he resists.”


Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is in development for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
