Kojima Teased MGS V: The Phantom Pain Release Date Way Back In 2014, “Kojima Deserves An Applaud”

Konami and Kojima, I applaud you. This was the ending shot (image below) to last year’s trailer for the Phantom pain at E3 last year. The man himself (Hideo Kojima) stated that this date had some significance, many fans went into a wild frenzy to work out what he meant….. was it important to Snake somehow, was it important to the story of phantom pain somehow, turns out the date is literally just that, a date. Here is how.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Pantom Pain


The ONE is the Date and the NINE is the Month.

2015 is the year. Add up 2, 1 and 5 you get EIGHT. 2015 is made up of FOUR numbers.

ONE + NINE + EIGHT + FOUR = 1984

So, what do you guys think? Comment away. Metal Gear Solid V – The Phantom Pain releases 1st Sept 2015 Worldwide.
