Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has clarified his comment earlier this week about wanting Metal Gear Solid 5‘s characters to be more erotic.

Speaking at the unveiling of Kojima Productions’ new Los Angeles studio, Kojima explained that the word “erotic” has been slightly lost in translation and what he actually meant was sexy. “Maybe the phrase ‘erotic’ wasn’t really [the correct word for] what I was trying to say,” he said (via Polygon). “What I’m really trying to do is create unique characters.”

The character in question is bikini-clad sniper Quiet, who was revealed in the game’s E3 trailer. “I wanted to add that sexiness to her. It wasn’t really supposed to be erotic, but sexy,” Kojima explained. “You’re going to notice [when you play] there’s limited dialogue with the [Metal Gear Solid 5], and for that reason we really want to show the characteristic from each character.

“Sexy could be for guys, weapons, vehicles, it’s really that characteristic,” he concluded.
