Not many games manage to roll absolute hype and saddening, sombre undertones into one amazing five minute trailer, but Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's somehow managed it. Directed and edited by none other than Hideo Kojima himself, it almost feels like a goodbye from the visionary in numerous ways, and not just because this could well be the last video that he works on for the series.

The first few minutes chronicle the legacy of the illustrious franchise, showing emotional clips from all of the past titles, while the latter half essentially turns into an episode of Gundam thanks to the craziest Metal Gear design yet.

There's no two ways about it - the trailer's an epic from start to finish, but how are your hype levels doing? Can you wait no longer for Big Boss' final adventure or are you too busy presenting offerings to your makeshift shrine of Kojima? Become a demon in the comments section below.
