Hideo Kojima has teased the boxart for the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain premium package. The sample box was meant exclusively for Japanese consumers, and it contains an accurately scaled bionic arm.

In addition to the new boxart, Kojima and his crew debuted a new teaser at E3 2015. The trailer shows Big Boss, the person from whom series protagonist Solid Snake is cloned, walking through the halls of a military base.

He takes the base with his trademark stealth tactics, and he dispatches foes while the alarm sounds. It made a good impression with the media at the expo.

"Konami has released a new, five-minute trailer for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain," The Verge stated, "showing that despite the developer's ongoing financial struggles (and reported arguments with Metal Gear auteur Hideo Kojima), the latest installment in the franchise is definitely going to turn heads.

The new trailer is, well, you just have to watch it really: it's creepy, it's hypnotic, it's full of grand talk of 'freeing the world by ...

taking men's tongues' and 'making mankind whole again.' Essentially, it's very, very Metal Gear Solid."

You will be able to return to the world of Metal Gear in the fall; Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is set to launch on September 1 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. For more about the upcoming title, visit its official website here.
