In what is surely one of the most anticipated and controversial games coming out in a few months time, Konami and Hideo Kojima have released a brand new poster promoting the latest entry in the long running Metal Gear Solid series with "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain", which features Venom Snake/ Big Boss and the new character Quiet on the one sheet, all covered in blood and looking ready to take on anything coming against them.
The poster, tweeted by Kojima and posted on Comic Book.com, comes with the tagline in Japanese that's translated as "Stained in Blood, The Aftermath of Revenge", which pertains to Snake and his army MSF/ Diamond Dogs mission seeking vengeance for the atrocities committed against them. The poster also evidently lacks the "A Hideo Kojima Game" label that is always associated with every MGS game, as internal tensions and issues between Konami and Kojima-san will see the latter depart from the company after work on The Phantom Pain in finished.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be released on September 1.
