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.

@Vu2010 @Nintyfan95 It was present in MGS4, yes. But their just making MGS lessed focused on what made it so popular, that is it's stealth, and lack of seriousness. (ex: The iconic !)

@Nintyfan95 @Sl4cka @WantYouBad Enjoying sex shows lack of moral? Your dad must be very immoral then, unless he was forced to have sex...

@WantYouBad I play it for its great story and gameplay. Big breasts are just a bonus.

@WantYouBad @Sl4cka @Nintyfan95 We need games that are ficitional, not simulators of things we can do in the real world (excluding the superhuman soilders of course).

@Sl4cka @Nintyfan95 You act as if giant breasts, slutty clothes, a contrived story, and goofy superhuman soldiers (like Raiden) don't apply to kids and lonely teens.

@Nintyfan95 How about you go play your Sonic with the other kids, while the adults talk about a game you clearly are too young to understand.

@KamuiFei @Nintyfan95 Look at the channel views of both games, exactly. Sure you can say that gamefaqs users are talking more on the PS3 version of MGSV than SLW, but Youtube is more popular, is it not. Get over it. MGS is dead.

@Nintyfan95 MGS is going to sell whether the girls are completely naked or all wearing space suits.

@Nintyfan95 @Vu2010 It ended the second I saw Raiden spinning mechs with his toes in IV.

Moral of the story is, David Ellis is jealous since all he was allowed to draw was Master Chief's power armor bulge.

Oh that's cool. At the end of the clip you can see how the camo on her face dissapears so she'll be using her skin for camo akin to snakes suit in MGS4. Now we know why she's scantily clad.

It's kind of funny that most Japanese games uses caucasian actors or models for their characters. I can't think of any Asian characters in any of their games.

@plm3d_basic Considering it was influenced by American movies, it would be a bit weird if the game was full of Asians.

Also Master "Kaz" Miller is half Japanese.
