Surprising Metal Gear Solid Announcement Teased for Next Week

Posted on December 12, 2012 AT 03:22am

Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu is teasing “something surprising for Metal Gear Solid fans” in its next issue.

The issue in question is due to hit shelves next week. Could this announcement have something to do with The Phantom Pain which was revealed at the VGAs last Friday? Based on the timing of the announcement and the sheer amount of Metal Gear Solid related hints found in the trailer it stands quite a good chance.

Several fans believe that The Phantom Pain is secretly a Metal Gear title for several reasons which are analyzed here. There’s also the fact that developer Moby Dick Studio’s CEO Joakim Mogren’s first name is actually an anagram of Kojima.

Are the two game’s related? Is this announcement going to be about The Phantom Pain? Share your thoughts below.
