Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima is parting ways with Konami following the launch of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and in a new video, he says farewell to the franchise he’s spent nearly three decades building.

The 10-minute mini-documentary features Kojima sharing insights about his work on the franchise and talking with his collaborators, including title designer Kyle Cooper, composer Justin Burnett, and voice actors Robin Atkins Downes and Troy Baker.

“I don’t think anyone is capable of planning a series that spans 28 years,” Kojima says. “I always felt that every chapter I made would be the last, and nothing would follow. But, suddenly, before I knew it 28 years had passed!”

The video also shows Kojima paying a touching visit to the home of a Metal Gear superfan who passed away before the game’s completion, during which the designer emphasizes his work was always driven by a desire to make players happy.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
