Is Hideo Kojima editing a trailer for The Phantom Pain?

The answer is likely "yes." But just to be safe.

Hideo Kojima is widely believed to be the mastermind behind The Phantom Pain, the VGAs-announced mystery game from an unknown studio headed by a man whose name is an anagram of Kojima’s.

Last week, it was revealed the mystery game runs on the FOX Engine, and that a new trailer would be shown at GDC next week.

Today, Hideo Kojima posted the following image on Twitter:

Notice the title of the video: “TPP_GDC2013_720p_ESRB.” Obviously an ESRB-rated GDC 2013 trailer for The Phantom Pain. Right?!

Stay tuned.
