313w ago - As a follow-up from speculation earlier today, the countdown timer on Kojima's Web site finally counted down and revealed a picture of a boss (pictured below).

It could be Raiden, but no one is sure of who it is yet... but his hat does have a strange symbol that would seem to point to Metal Gear 5.

It does appear the recent rumor of the NEXT title being Lords of Shadow may have just been that, a rumor, though.

More details to come as they are available, and feel free to share your comments below.

Countdown Suggests Next Metal Gear Solid to Focus on Raiden?

i mean, look at that magazine, that may not be a ninja, that may not be Raiden... I mean:

"Gray Fox aka NULL aka Frank Jaeger looks different. " we never saw his face or hair... did we?

If it's supposed to be Solidus, then the Raiden thing makes sense again.


Solidus had an eyepatch on his left eye, whereas Big Boss had an eyepatch on his right eye.

It's not Solidus, he had an eyepatch, but in the other eye, that is clearly Big Boss, as well as the other one is clearly Raiden, not NULL/Gray Fox/Frank Jaeger.

The best theory is that this game fills in the gaps between all of the previous Metal Gears: Big Boss before Outer Heaven, Raiden Seaching for BB body, and, why not, Snake in those years between MGS2 and MGS4.

Raiden =/= Gray Fox.
I agree that it can be Gray Fox instead of Raiden, but from the looks of it, it's Raiden. Raiden in MGS4 outfit.
Gray Fox aka NULL aka Frank Jaeger looks different. I'm really curious now!

Ill take a guess here, and you are missing a photo here



so... theres Raiden and Big Boss, or Gray Fox and Big Boss for a remake.

Leaked scans from the upcoming Famitsu show what looks like another familiar Metal Gear character: Raiden.

Raiden means "thunder and lightning" in Japanese – fitting as the teaser site has mostly been thunder and lighting. Oh, rain, there has been rain. (Who knows though if this character is actually Raiden, maybe it's Gray Fox?)



Those hoping for a plethora of details from the Famitsu reveal, tough luck. The title of the article is "Director Kojima Interview With Tons of Blanked Out Words: Talking The Latest MGS."

The interview seems to be mostly that: blanked out words.

See all those white dots? Those are blanked words. The big text on this page shows an exchange between the interview and Kojima. The interview asks, "Is it okay to print everything?" (Which gives substantial insight onto how Famitsu rolls.)

Kojima replied, "If you blank out words, it's okay."

It can't be a remake if Raiden is in it.
Anyway I'm completely sold if it's a remake! Because that image is indeed Big Boss

You know i'm getting tired of this crap already, the timer ends and it goes back up to 112 hrs.

All this and i'm sure everyone is going to be super pissed IF it turns out to not be a Metal Gear game.
