This ‘Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’ wedding is both amazing and weird…

While Japanese traditional-style weddings are still popular, most newlyweds tend to tie the knot with weddings based on Western-style themes and traditions with the bride in a white, flowing gown and the groom in a sharp tux. But what about a wedding that’s espionage-themed?

That’s what this promo for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain attempts to showcase. The video hilariously chronicles the pair’s most important day, from the altar approach to the couple’s profile videos and even the banquet afterwards. The video peaks when the father finally gives away his daughter to his new son-in-law with a ceremonial PlayStation Dual Shock 4 controller, but to an incredibly confused caterer who has no idea what’s going on.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain releases on September 1 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.

Metal Gear Solid visionary Hideo Kojima to reportedly leave Konami

The mastermind behind the Metal Gear Solid series, Hideo Kojima will reportedly leave Konami following the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain in September. Speculation regarding Kojima’s resignation began when a re-launched MGSV site removed all credits of Kojima and the senior staff at his studio, Kojima Productions.

Another indication of Kojima’s eventual leave points to the transition of his personal Kojima Productions’ Twitter account to a general Metal Gear account. Reports have surfaced disclosing a power struggle between Kojima and Konami, which explains the mysterious friction between the two sides. If reports of Kojima’s eventual leave turn out to be true, Konami is losing a true master of his craft.

RocketNews 24:

Korean gamers and netizens are crying tears of joy now that Sony has announced it will be translating some of the most popular Playstation titles into Korean for the first time. This might come as a surprise for many considering the popularity of video games in Japan’s close neighbor, but for years fans of these series were deprived of the ultimate gaming experience in their native tongue. However, that will finally change this summer.

Described by many netizens as a “dream come true,” Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) announced recently on their official website and blog that two of the most popular series available on the PlayStation, Dragon Quest and Metal Gear Solid, will be localized into Hangul, slated for release in summer this year. This strategic move is accompanied by the release of the PlayStation 4, also localized, and was announced by SCE Korea CEO Shiro Kawauchi. Korean fans can definitely look forward to an epic summer of endless gaming.

This move by SCE Korea generated much buzz on social media, and netizens have expressed nothing but immense joy at this news:

“Currently, the most likable Japanese person in Korea is the CEO that announced the news.”

“I can’t believe this is happening in my lifetime!”

“Kawauchi actually shed tears and told the Korean users, ‘Thank you so much for waiting.’ What a great guy.”

“I am cancelling all my summer vacation plans to buy the PS4.”

Looks like Sony played their cards right this time. Not only are Korean fans super-hyped for the PS4, their CEO also shot to fame as one of the most popular Japanese people in a country where netizens are often hostile to the Japanese.
