In approximately 23 hours, at the time of writing, there's going to be some sort of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain announcement. The news comes courtesy of the game's official Japanese website, which features a stylish countdown.

So, what's it going to be? Well, the obvious bet is that the title's finally getting a concrete release date, but with this series, anything is possible. Still, with the title tentatively slated to launch at some point this year, a confirmed date sooner rather than later would make sense.

What are you hoping for? Do we even have to ask? Pester David Hayter in the comments section below.

Update: Whoops, we've made a slight -- but hopefully understandable -- error on this one. The countdown actually has 1 day and 23 hours, not just 23 hours. Clearly in our excitable haste, we missed the day counter entirely, so we apologise for spreading such terrible misinformation.

As such, this means that the announcement is actually happening on Wednesday. We really hope that you didn't book tomorrow off work or anything.
