"Spring 2014" no more -- Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will be launching on March 18th, 2014 on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. As a surprise announcement Konami has revealed the Xbox exclusive "Jamais Vu" mission, featuring robot freaking Raiden in what appears to be his incarnation from Metal Gear Rising.

As a recap, the PS3 and PS4 versions will be getting a "Deja Vu" mission involving Classic Snake. So basically, you'll have the opportunity to pick your favorite protagonist coming this March.

I choose both.

Speaking with Famitsu magazine, Hideo Kojima talked a bit about the decision to split the upcoming Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain into two games, and how he would have rather "released it all at once." Kojima hints that ...

by Wesley Ruscher

Back in September, Hideo Kojima tweeted that he was making Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's Quiet "more erotic" to entice cosplay. He shared designs of the character's backside and almost seemed to taunt would-be cosplayers with claims that it may be too hard to pull off

Well meet cosplayer and UK Dtoider, Kelly Jean's take on the silent, but deadly sniper. As a big fan of the Metal Gear series -- just check out her fantastic EVA cosplay -- Jean wanted to take on the challenge of recreating the accuracy of an actual video game render. 

"I only know limited amounts about Quiet, as we all do, but since I am a fan of the franchise it's going to take quite a lot to disappoint me. Though I do hope she gets some trousers, she makes me feel pretty cold," Jean said.

Shot in a studio, to get the lighting right, and with some minimal editing Jean's creation of Quiet is eerily spot on, all the way down to the exact hand placements from the MGS V still. The costume came from mostly modified combat gear and has even caught the attention of Kojima himself

With Christmas right around the corner, Jean will also be selling prints of her 'Quiet' cosplay to raise money for Special Effect. All profits will go to the charity, which specializes in bringing the joy of gaming to those with disabilities. 

"I am currently in training to be a health care assistant and care worker. The girl I'm soon to be helping out is really bright and enjoys her games, but has severe physical disabilities, so I'm really passionate about this cause," Jean said.

In case you haven't heard, Metal Gear Solid V will be broken up into two games -- Ground Zeroes, and Phantom Pain. The latter will be the "meat and potatoes" of the package, but with the former (which will take place before Phantom Pain), we now have a ton of new info.

According to Konami, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will be launching in spring 2014 on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. The pricing model is interesting, as Konami is charging $29.99 for a retail version, and $19.99 for a current-gen (PS3, 360) download. The PS4 and Xbox One versions however will yield a $29.99 download price.

Kiefer Sutherland is Snake in Metal Gear Solid V

The voice of Snake for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has been revealed today -- it's non other than Jack Bauer himself -- Kiefer Sutherland. Kojima stated during Konami's press conference that the year is 1984, and since Snake is 49 years old, they need an older voice for the role.

Kojima states that he's the "perfect fit with age and performance." Sutherland has worked in games before, including Call of Duty: World at War and Street Fighter X Tekken. Honestly, I'm okay with this, as I think he could bring a lot to the role. Besides, it's not like Hayter ever can't come back, right?
