Konami has released a new video showing off the 3D scan and motion-capture technology that developer Kojima Productions is using to bring the characters of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain to life.

No Caption Provided

Actress Stefanie Joosten, who plays the role of Quiet in the game, is shown in the video having her face scanned and performing various actions with a sniper rifle in a motion-capture suit.

The depiction of Joosten's character Quiet has not been without controversy.

In a series of tweets earlier this week, Kojima said he directed MGSV's art director to make some of the game's characters, including Quiet, "more erotic" in an effort to encourage cosplay and promote figurine sales. He has since clarified these tweets, saying "sexy" was a better word to use.

"What I'm really trying to do is create unique characters. One of those is, of course, Quiet. She's a really unique character. I wanted to add that sexiness to her," Kojima said. "It wasn't really supposed to be erotic, but sexy."

Halo designer David Ellis took issue with the depiction of Quiet, calling the character design "disgusting" and evidence that the game industry is "full of man babies."

GameSpot recently attended a live demonstration of Metal Gear Solid V prologue Ground Zeroes at Kojima Productions' new office in Los Angeles. Check out GameSpot's impressions for more.

Did this one a second ago lol in the sun and sand with her skin color she's not a easy spot only the clothing she does have on is a easy giveaway.

For a sniper being found means your as good as dead so heavy body armor is almost pointless it may protect you from small arms fire but not a high powered rifle or a precision strike.

Further more lack of heavy and hot equipment when combined with proper sunblock would actually extend operation time in the field.

The tights are just Kojima being a troll which he's good at and people are falling for hook line and sinker lol.

I see nothing wrong with this whatsoever. I'm assuming the game will be rated M right? Can't blame the game makers if they adhere to the proper guidelines. This videogame censor bull is ridiculous - an excuse for bad parenting. I LOVE how Dave Ellis is white knighting. Don't worry Dave we all see through your bulls***. No one gives two s****. You're not as talented as Kojima and your games are thematically bland as f***. Why exactly are you chiming in? So random dude. Waiting for the inevitable Carolyn Petit super blog on everything that's wrong with MGSV.

I was on the beach this summer. Pretty sure 99% of the women there had less clothes on, and I wasn't offended.

But I guess if David finds the female body disgusting, that is his problem, I know I don't. He could just get out of the closet if that is his problem, it would certainly make things easier.

@ShinobiMedic Beach lounging versus reconnaissance military actions... it's gonna require a different set of clothing...

Woah "Quiet" is based on a model? What the hell did they do to it? She is actually pretty in real life, the in game character isn't.

Huh? Did you watch the video? The model and the game character look pretty much the same.

3d modelisation isn't a perfect science,even when using a 3d scan.You also have to take into account the graphic engine.

I'd happily buy a Quiet figurine if she did NOT look like a tramp.

@Scorpion1813 I will assume that you're both religious and a feminist, or simply a tightass. You pick.

@ShinobiMedic

None of the above. You couldn't be more wrong about me.

Religious? I hate organised religious or any establish belief systems, including ones that "don't believe in anything".

A tightass? I said I'd "happily buy a figurine". I may be skint, but I'm willing to spend what little money I have on an MGS figurine, if I like it.

Feminist? Why? Because I don't think tramps are visually pleasing or "sexy"? I'm all for equality. Like I said earlier, I'd have a problem whether it was male or female dressed like that. Why would that make me a feminist?

Good for you if you like the design. Doesn't mean everyone else has to and it doesn't justify making assumptions that are way out of context. Just like that person assuming I'm from the US in an attempt to imply I'm a prudish American.

@frozenux @Scorpion1813 But Raiden is male and it's ok to show male nude or in skimpy clothing, but when it's female it's suddenly sexist and disgusting

Sorry French here,you must be from the US i guess ,i have a very distinct idea of what is appropriate or not.

@frozenux @Stebsis @Scorpion1813 But once again it's ok because it's really not female, it's just an AI who's for no real reason in a shape of female :D

@Stebsis

Put Raiden in arse-less chaps and a leather waistcoat and I'd have the same problem. It doesn't matter if they are male or female.

My problem is how innapropriately trampy she is, not the fact she is showing skin and happens to be female.

@Stebsis @frozenux @Scorpion1813 The very guy who called it that way was among the people who designed Cortana.So it's kind of amusing for that Dude to say that.

Wasn't a fan.

But at least they were both dressed appropriately from the most part.

It would certainly be less trampy.

@Scorpion1813 @frozenux because of the stockings? lol. So she should have gone full nude like mystique then?

Doesn't mean she has to look like a tramp. Especially when they are aiming for "sexy".

Kojima hinted at her skin being camo like.If that's not the case i would have then a problem with her attire in the middle of the desert.Most of the snipers in the mgs had some kind of skill to blend in and to be barely seen.

I can't wait to see Quiet use her chameleon like skin...that will shut up a lot of mouth here.

This is completely inaccurate. She's wearing way too much clothes for an accurate scan given how little Quiet wears. >_>
