Hideo Kojima has released some new footage of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, showing off a staple of the franchise, the trusty cardboard box. The clip is only around a minute and a half long but shows guards being taken down due to not checking the suspiciously large box that appeared out of nowhere, and it’s actually quite funny. It made me smile anyway. Watch as one guard is neutralised and then another held up before our hero runs off, completing his cardboard hijinks. It all looks rather nice too, and we’re sure to get a lot more footage next week.
In other news related to the Metal Gear franchise it appears Sony is attempting to get Jordan Vogt-Roberts to direct a movie adaptation of Metal Gear Solid. He has previously directed films such as The Kings Of Summer and Successful Alcoholics, as well as the TV show Single Dads. So a relative new comer to Hollywood taking on a franchise that has millions of fans. Good luck to him if he decides to take the helm.
