MGSV Debriefing Video Is Kojima's Very Heartfelt Goodbye
At least, it certainly seems like it.
Hideo Kojima and Konami have released a brief documentary outlining the legendary series and tackling the difficulties in creating the last entry, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
The video doesn't just show Kojima talking to members of the team about MGSV; it's also surprisingly emotional on a number of different levels. For instance, Kojima visits the family of Sean Gillespie, a big fan of the series who was suffering from cancer during the production of The Phantom Pain. Gillespie unfortunately passed away on February 8 but the letter he wrote to Kojima and Co. served as a big inspiration.
Kojima says in the video that his "energy comes from the players" and his goal is to "exceed their expectations." His final words were:
"I've been working on making MGS V the best it can possibly be, balancing and tweaking right up until the very end. Players will not be disappointed. I'm sorry it took so long, but I feel we've created something very special and I hope everyone will enjoy it. Thank you all."
Thank you, Kojima-san.
