Concealed identity

Remember when GTTV host Geoff Keighley revealed that he was about to interview the CEO of Moby Dick Studio, Joakim Mogren? Well, here’s a picture of the supposed Swedish developer behind The Phantom Pain – covered in, er, bandages. Could this story possibly get any more ridiculous? We certainly hope so.

For those not in the loop, The Phantom Pain is widely believed to be a ruse for Metal Gear Solid 5. Following its debut during last year’s Spike VGAs, snoops uncovered a slew of references to Hideo Kojima’s franchise – including Joakim’s name being a cleverly disguised anagram. An interview with the pictured developer is set to air during tonight’s episode of GTTV.

What do you make of the events surrounding The Phantom Pain? Is this a stroke of genius, or has Hideo Kojima finally gone mad? Let us know in the comments section below – if you can stop laughing, of course.
