The Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain trailer has been released and it will surely give long-time fans goose bumps as it showcases all the highlights from the MGS games as edited and cut by Hideo Kojima.
The trailer engages viewers in an emotional nostalgia trip showing selected memorable scenes from the MGS games while ?Quiet?s Theme? hums in the background.
The emotional journey crafted by Kojima starts with Metal Gear Solid on the PS1 and ends with a MGS5 scene showing Big Boss?s transformation as a villain.
Of course, Kojima remembered to put a hype-inducing scene as he ends the MGSV trailer with Big Boss running away from a metal gear.
According to Gamingbolt, this trailer was ?hand-made? with ?sweet momories? by Kojima.
I'm making a new trailer for MGS series fans. It's not a Hollywoody big budget pre-rendered one but it'll be "hand made" w/ sweet memories.
