We've already seen Old Snake — heck, we had a whole game with him. While the promotional artwork for Metal Gear Sold: Ground Zeroes shows a younger looking Snake, the game's debut footage seems to show an older looking Snake. Or does it?
Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima attempted to clear up the confusion on Twitter, writing: "I'm seeing a lot of tweets about how when Snake takes off his goggles, he's old-looking because of his grey hairs. That, however, is just the backlighting making them look grey."
The difference is even more pronounced when you compare the promotional image and the game footage. Still, noted!
