>>285575847
Kojima is a big western fag so he probably listened to what his marketers told him about the american audience. He's not like Naughty Dog and will tell them to fuck off and keep Elle on the cover.

is that a exclamation mark shaped like a V?

You guys are fucking panicking for nothing. I'm 100% sure it'll have a reversible cover like the PS4 version of Ground Zeroes (I don't remember if the PS3 version had one and I didn't see the 360/bone covers)

I'm pretty sure it's like that on promo images to not spoil the map.

Is this just something to do with the lore, or is it ANOTHER sub-title?

Don't worry in a few years you can replace your own arm with a real function one

Started with Peace Walker due to the mission based structure of the game.

Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain are similar and they kept the subtitle.

Meh, I don't think so. I think it's all a red herring. I think Big Boss is just Big Boss in TPP.

TPP is supposed to show us that BB is breaking bad/going insane, so I think we'll see this from his perspective/we'll play as him.

But I hope there will be some kind of a suprise and they will give us more protagonists. But I think there's no body double.
