Hideo Kojima has ‘no regrets’ as Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain launches worldwide

The creator behind the Metal Gear franchise took to Twitter on the eve of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain‘s worldwide launch to share a few words with fans.

While the last few months surely haven’t been easy for Hideo Kojima after his well-publicised falling out with Konami, the legendary game developer appeared to be in good spirits as he prepared for The Phantom Pain’s launch.

We’ve done everything w/ no regrets but full of heart. I’m so proud. Pls enjoy. Kept u waiting huh? Let’s get ready,” said Kojima-san.

The Phantom Pain is a milestone achievement for Kojima-san and his team, being the last title in the series that he will work on. Konami has confirmed plans to continue the venerable stealth-action franchise without him, though nothing else is known at this point.
