Hideo Kojima has hinted at some of the potential contents in the next trailer for the upcoming multiplatform video game, "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain." According to a report from Gaming Bolt on May 11, the game director revealed that the forthcoming footage won't be as action-packed as the previous videos. As a result, fan would not see any collapses, crashes, explosions or hangings.

Hideo Kojima also talked more about the trailer-creation process, adding that the methods have not changed all that much despite gaming consoles being more powerful. He went on to reveal that making videos for "Castlevania Lords of Shadow," "Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance" and "Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner" were a lot easier as he was serving as the producer for the projects. As a result, he get to work with more complete assets.

Finally, the game director mentioned that gameplay scenes are the hardest parts when it come to building a trailer. This is due to the enemies not reacting the same way in every scenario. He concluded by confirming that the E3 2000 trailer for "Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty" and the E3 2004 trailer for "Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater" were the toughest clips he had to put together. You can find his comments below:

But the toughest part of editing trailer is gameplay scene. Esp battle scene rather than sneaking is hard to shoot. AI doesn’t move as expected, or moves differently every time. I seclude myself in the studio editing, esp 2000 E3(MGS2) and 2004 E3(MGS3) were the hardest ones.

The upcoming trailer for "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain," which is most likely being shown at E3 2014 next month, appears to be more story based. The previous videos provide a mix of story with a few gameplay sequences sprinkled in. After the controversy surrounding the release of "Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes," Hideo Kojima is looking to rebuild the anticipation for the mainline installment.

The prequel to "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain" was criticized for providing too little content to justify the $29.99 price tag. "Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes" was released two months ago for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on March 18.
