The video game marketing world just loves countdown clocks, doesn't it? The countdown clock du jour is from Kojima. Last week, an advertisement in Famitsu led to a mysterious Kojima-related website featuring a barren landscape. The ad also contained a date: May 18th. Leading some to speculate that something exciting would be revealed today.
Alas, the revelation is only of a clock counting down for the next 82 hours (at the time of this post). Oh, and a flash of lightning highlighting a nearly transparent "5". So on May 21 or 22 (depending on your time zone), there should be more information on this project.
I don't know about you, but I think it might be Metal Gear Solid 5...either that or the mystery will end with a coded message reading "Drink more Ovaltine."
But maybe it's not Metal Gear 5. Maybe that's too obvious. Check out the site yourself, spend some time trying to decipher something (anything!) from the gathering thunderclouds, and post your theory below, in our comment section.
