'Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain' Xbox One, PS4, PC Release Date: New Screenshots of Snake's 'horn' a shrapnel or bone?
Fans are frenzied amid Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain upcoming release date this year across all platforms when game genius Hideo Kojima posted new bizarre photos of Snake on his Twitter account and more.
These freshest details have surfaced online straight from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain designer Kojima himself sharing pictures of Snake with a bandage on his head, a photo of Snake showing the difference between night and day retweeted from Konami's Twitter and odd images of The Boss with grown horn that fuel the hype online among the fans.
Kojima's status on Twitter reads, "Okay now no more bandages but the horns got grown?!" The Boss is shown with some kind of a black horn on the right side of his skull. Apparently, for fans who are religiously following news updates on Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain release know better that this is not a horn but a shrapnel.
JBRonin posted an article back in June 2013 about things that he noticed on the MGSV:TPP trailer and one of them is the somewhat visible chunk of shrapnel in Snake's head. So the news about the shrapnel, not a horn, is not new.
Several pictures of Snake with the shrapnel also appeared in other websites about a couple of years ago and the last year that fans can revisit in this link.
In fact, there's also a different view on this; a commenter corrected him that it is not a shrapnel but rather a bone, and the confirmation is said to have come from Kojima himself.
"Somebody in the comments...mentioned that the shrapnel is bone. They mentioned that Kojima himself had said so in a podcast," said in the article.
Somehow it appears that when Kojima posted "the horns got grown," he might only be teasing that the shrapnel, or bone, looks like a horn that's starting to grow.
Earlier this month, the release date of Metal Gear Solid V:The Phantom Pain was purported to have been leaked via Konami's financial report revealing a third quarter of 2015. Konami remains mum and has made no confirmation to date about the said rumor.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain release date coming to PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC is well expected to hit shelves later this year.
