Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain announced for PS3, Xbox 360 [Update: announcement, HD trailer, screens]


mgs5-tpp_logoSo The Phantom Pain really is Metal Gear Solid V, surprise! Even though internet sleuths had been piecing together the puzzle ever since The Phantom Pain was announced during the VGA's, Hideo Kojima and company had really been sticking to their guns up to this point.

But now we've got an official trailer coming out of the Game Developers Conference 2013 today, unveiling Metal Gear Solid V with a new trailer, that ties in both the previously announced Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain.

Footage here looks incredible, and in typical MGS fashion offers up more questions than answers. But it's nearly 6 minutes long, and totally worth a look.

I'm sure we'll have more official info shortly, but for now check out the trailer embedded below (thanks to Wario64 for the quick upload to Youtube on this!):
