According to Kotaku this beautiful Parisean restaurant will stay open until Metal Gear Solid 5: the Phantom Pain launches Sept. 1.

It will serve items like "Le Big Boss Burger," Phantom cocktails, Mother Base themed desserts and "hot Diamond Dogs."

Take a look at some pictures:

Even though creator Hideo Kojima has been pushed out of his project, Konami is still letting him edit and direct these trailers.

If you want more, plenty other trailers have come out for the game.

But at this point, you're probably better off waiting for its Sept. 1 release.

Since Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain releases on consoles Sept. 1, this is probably the very last trailer for the highly anticipated (at least by extreme espionage fans) game we will see.

Additionally, since the creator Hideo Kojima has left Konami in splendid fashion, there might not be another MGS game at all.

It sounds like an atrocious place to work anyway.

How rude!

It comes as no surprise after all the Konami/Kojima drama, but the Hideo Kojima branding has been removed from the cover of Metal Gear Solid V. All of Hideo Kojima's games typically feature his production logo and "A Hideo Kojima Game" prominently on the cover, but MGSV appears to be without it. Here's the previous version for comparison:



Shame on you, Konami.

Rumors have been floating around that Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima is leaving Konami, after he said he's done with the series, and the brand is attempting to minimalize the appearance of his name on the latest Metal Gear Solid game:



Kojima's games typically feature heavy branding as "A Hideo Kojima Game," but advertisements of The Phantom Pain have recently been changed to remove that branding.  Additionally, news has surfaced that Kojima will no longer be an executive at Konami as of April 1st.  Though they haven't explicitly stated he's leaving the company, Konami released the following statement that all but confims it:

To Customers,

Thank you for your continued patronage of KONAMI products and services.

The latest title in the METAL GEAR series,“METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN” (below, “MGSV: TPP”), will be released as planned starting on Tuesday, September 1st, 2015 in North America, Latin America, and Europe, followed by Japan and Asia on Wednesday, September 2nd. Hideo Kojima will remain involved throughout.

Hideo Kojima stated, "I want to reassure fans that I am 100% involved and will continue working on METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN; I’m determined to make it the greatest game I’ve directed to date. Don’t miss it!"

In addition, KONAMI will continue to develop and distribute top-quality content in the METAL GEAR series following “MGSV: TPP.” We greatly anticipate and deeply appreciate your ongoing support for METAL GEAR.

As the next step in the series, KONAMI has already resolved to develop new “METAL GEAR”.

We will be conducting interviews for main staff to lead the development.

In an interview with IGN, creator Hideo Kojima claims Metal Gear is over:

I always say 'this will be my last Metal Gear,' but the games in the series that I've personally designed and produced -- Metal Gear on MSX, MG2, MGS1, 2, 3, 4, Peace Walker, and now MGSV -- are what constitute a single 'Metal Gear Saga.' With MGSV, I'm finally closing the loop on that saga.  In that sense, this will be the final 'Metal Gear Solid.' Even if the 'Metal Gear' franchise continues, this is the last 'Metal Gear.'

To be fair, this isn't the first time he's said this.  Kojima's been trying to get away from the series since Metal Gear Solid 2, but he was forced to go back when MGS3 wasn't going well.
