VIDEO: Hideo Kojima Previews New Metal Gear Solid Game At PAX 2012

The footage is sweet, but Kojima-san adds an extra flair which you can see after the jump.

This weekend’s PAX 2012 featured Konami’s Hideo Kojima giving attendees mild heart attacks, as he revealed a special first-look at Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes.

15-minutes of gameplay footage and an interesting set-up finds gamers drooling at the possibilities of when this game comes into stores. Despite the footage being ran on a PC, Kojima-san has confirmed that the footage shown today would be comparable to what will be seen from the PS3 and Xbox 360 version of the title. As for where the title stands in relation to other entries, Kojima had this to say.

“We’re not going to say that it’s Metal Gear Solid 5,” Kojima stated, “but it is a prologue.” Based upon the footage, it takes place after Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and the footage shown could potentially spoil “Peace Walker” for those who haven’t completed it, yet.

There’s no release date mentioned for Ground Zeroes.
