More Evidence to Support Metal Gear Solid 5 Announcement for E3


Kojima’s next game is currently in its website teasing countdown timer stages, but of course we’re going to want to know what it is sooner than it is revealed. New evidence today points even more signs towards Metal Gear Solid 5.

If the flashing “5” in the background of the teaser site didn’t convince you, perhaps this will.

During E3 2000, E3 2003, and E3 2005, where Konami announced Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 3, and Metal Gear Solid 4, they sent out kits to press containing materials from their anonuncements. The press kits from each E3 can be seen above.


Notice the similarity between the style of the numbers on the press kits and the “5” flashing on the teaser site. This all leads towards E3 2009 where we’re expecitng Metal Gear Solid 5 to be announced.
