It’s official. The long awaited TPP trailer has been released into the wild. After being leaked yesterday (Monday) it was inevitable that Konami/Kojima would unveil it to the world. Check out the video below:
As Kojima promised, this new trailer would be filled with less action, though more emotion. He had expressed that it may have been even harder to watch than Ground Zeroes Red Band trailer where Paz has a surprise imbedded in her guts. Here’s a quick spread of some screen grabs:
Reminiscent of philosophical quotes that can be seen in the first Peace Walker trailer.
Comrades being cremated.
Instead of scattering their ashes to the sea…
Snake smears it on his face…
As a tribute to his Diamond Dogs. Like war paint.
Snake goes Nuclear!
Ocelot apparently training the DD crew.
New Mother Base perhaps.
Looks like an underground fight club on the base has started. Most likely for training purposes, as with the beginning cutscene in Peace Walker.
Ocelot wants the truth from Emmerich any way he can get it.
Eli (young Liquid?) apparently doesn’t like Snake. As his shirt says, “Never Be Game Over.”
Looks like we’ll finally get some knife play too.
Snake wants in on the fight club.
Like, for real.
But this guy doesn’t want to.
A shot of Quiet being tortured by other means.
Kaz looking in bad shape after the rescue.
Looks like Quiet isn’t in the mood. Foot stomp!
Ima gonna guess she has a knife in her hand.
Someone aims a laser sight at Snake.
Snake’s WTF face is pure awesome!
Looks like there’s a double agent in Diamond Dogs.
That’s not a knife. THIS is a knife!
Back to Snake descending into nuclear madness. Horn aplenty.
TACTICAL ESPIONAGE OPERATIONS.
You can just feel the emotional toll on Snake’s face.
Those who don’t exist?
The events of 1975 are carried over.
A shot of a Metal Gear in the background?
Who is Snake standing next to?
It…Looks like… Skull Face! But why? He’s the one who orchestrated the events of Ground Zeroes and the fall of Mother Base…
A scuffle breaks out.
Snake breaks loose and…
This is the end result.
That was probably the most epic trailer for MGS. Hell, any game I’ve seen, period! I’ve watched this trailer countless times already but it’s not enough. Playing Ground Zeroes will be different now. I’ll be thinking about my Diamond Dogs and other motives to do these missions, and to insure the lives of my comrades. The Phantom Pain truly is shaping up to be the greatest game Kojima has ever created.
