Konami released a new trailer for their upcoming open world action-adventure stealth game, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain at TGS 2014.

In The Phantom Pain, a buddy AI system lets other characters tag along with Snake on missions to support his infiltration efforts.

Quiet was revealed as a buddy character and at TGS Kojima Productions introduced the next buddy character: the Diamond Dog. Or ‘D.D.’ for short.

Similar to Quiet, finding and befriending D.D. is entirely optional. But do so, and he’ll act as a sort-of mascot for Snake’s unit, the Diamond Dogs.

“In the aftermath of the events of Ground Zeroes and the destruction of Militaires Sans Frontières, Big Boss falls into a coma. Nine years later, he awakes and forms a new mercenary group, the Diamond Dogs.

Now under the guise of codenames such as ‘Punished Snake’ and ‘Venom Snake’, he ventures into Afghanistan during the Soviet war to track down the men responsible for MSF’s destruction.

Along the way, he becomes reacquainted with his former rival Ocelot and encounters a unit of warriors robbed of their past, present and future.

While he and Kazuhira ‘Kaz’ Miller are initially driven to exact revenge, Snake soon unearths a plot by the Cipher organization to develop a weapon with the potential to surpass even the Metal Gear system, and his mission quickly switches focus to ending the threat.”

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is currently in development for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
