'Joakim Mogren' uploads cryptic Phantom Pain video

Moby Dick Studios mystery deepens

Supposed Moby Dick Studios CEO Joakim Mogren has uploaded a new video for The Phantom Pain.


The new video features grainy CTV footage of a medical procedure accompanied by morse code, which YouTube user AesopsEpisoden has translated.

The translation reads: "Generating image hold scenario loading hold activate phantom pain dot meme hold error error error error".

The Phantom Pain is widely believed to be a Hideo Kojima helmed production, though it is officially attributed to a mysterious Swedish studio known as Moby Dick Studios. Evidence pointing to Kojima's involvement include the game's use of Konami's Fox Engine - the same engine to be used in Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes - and various clues gleaned from the game's reveal trailer.

A heavily bandaged Mogren was interviewed on GTTV last week, where he confirmed The Phantom Pain will be detailed at GDC next week.
